This next wedding blog is sweeter than usual. This lovely pair have known each other since elementary school and did not date until they were both in college. Ann was actually my first friend that I made during UCLA orientation. She was kind enough to introduce herself during that time and we all kicked it off nicely after that. It was not long after we all graduated college that Ann and Don dropped a line and broke in the big news about their wedding. It was definitely an honor to be not only her wedding photographer, but attend as a friend.
Ann and Don kick started their morning bright and early for the traditional Vietnamese wedding tea ceremony where both families were greeted and were given tea for their blessings. With everyone in their traditional Vietnamese wedding outfits, the room was filled with so much color along with laughter. Every wedding photo during this tea ceremony was a sure money shot! Once the tea ceremony concluded for both families, everyone headed their way to The Villa in Orange County for their next ceremony where all the friends and family eagerly waited. Ann beautifully walked down the aisle and all eyes were on her, especially Don’s. The wedding ceremony was short and sweet along with a few tears in between. Once everything was concluded, everyone just mingled, partied, and danced the rest of the night. A nice little surprise that Ann and Don had for their wedding guests was once the reception started, they had lion dancers perform to get everyone pumped and ready to party! Check out their quick wedding gallery below and enjoy the show.

Don anxiously waited to see how Ann looked like in her wedding dress for the first time!
I am always a sucker for lion dancers.
Don’s attempt to pop the cork and their reactions afterward were just priceless!
Of course, I cannot forget about James and how he represented our UCLA colors. He is one snazzy looking guy when he cleans up!
I hope you all enjoyed their wedding photos above. Congratulations again to the both of you, love birds. It was an honor to be your wedding photographer here at The Villa in Orange County.
