Yay! I have been so excited to share these! I was having some blog issues, but all is back to normal now. It was so much fun photographing Julia and Johnny’s traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony/Engagement Party. It’s much like a wedding event, but it marks the official proposal/engagement of the couple with friends and family, and includes many special rituals that were so interesting to photograph! The bridesmaids and brides family waited for the Groom and his groomsmen and family to arrive and then there was a greeting and the groomsmen all presented the bridesmaids with special gifts, including an entire pig on a tray! Then after everyone goes inside and completes introductions, the brides father retrieves her and brings her in to give her to soon to be groom. Johnny presented her with a bouquet and then got down on one knee with a ring to ask for her hand in marriage. It was pretty sweet! They’ll be officially married in a similar sort of ceremony next year and I’m so looking forward to it! Enjoy!
