Our next wedding couple, Thuy & Tony, is one hilarious pair. I remembered when I first met these two love birds, it was one laughter after another. Now when their wedding came around, they had little subtle jokes throughout the day. To kick start everyone’s smiles, normally, weddings couples have flowers or some form of decoration around their car. In this case, Thuy and Tony hung a plaque of two wooden doves that said,”Game Over” engraved on the sign. One the other sign, it said,”Ball and Chain” and so forth. Each car in the wedding entourage had a funny and playful quote that put a smile even on the most conservative aunts and uncles. Thuy and Tony woke up bright and early for the tea ceremonies in each household to honor their parents and elders. During these tea ceremonies, it can get quite lively to say the least. There was a lot of cheering, chatting, and laughter in the background during the ceremony. With each passing of the tea cups to each respected family member, they each shed a piece of advice for a good marriage. In a nutshell, just listen to whatever your wife tells you and everything will be okay!
Once all the craziness settled down after the tea ceremony, Thuy and Tony changed wardrobe for their civil wedding ceremony over at Westridge Golf Course. While Thuy and the gals retouched their makeup and helped Thuy jump into her wedding dress, Phebe and I managed a few minutes with the boys to start off their wedding photography session. Although we only had a few minutes at the hotel while the girls got ready, their wedding photos turned out really awesome! Once everyone was all ready to roll out, we met up at Laguna Lake Park for a full on wedding photography session. We hurried up and fired away since it was blazing out that summer afternoon. We did not want our wedding party to stay out more than is needed. With the incentive to be able to jump back into their cars with the air conditioner on high, everyone ran around and took all their wedding photos and retreated back into their cars while we took Thuy and Tony around the park for some wedding portraits of just the both of them.
Before the wedding ceremony commenced, mother nature gave us a bit of a break as the weather cooled down a notch and the trees shaded the rest of the wedding guests as they sat patiently for the wedding party to make their appearance. The wedding party choreographed how they walked or danced down the aisle. As they performed down the aisle, all the wedding guests cheered them on and our lovely couple sealed the dance with a quick dip and a kiss. Once their intimate wedding ceremony concluded, champagne bottles popped and horderves were served while Thuy and Tony mingled with everyone. The party continued throughout the night from cocktail hour to the end of the reception. There were fun activities, games, and the DJ threw a sick beat as everyone danced the night away. Enjoy.

Tony gave each of his groomsmen matching engraved wallet clips. Pretty nice touch!
Sweet moves, bro.
During cocktail hour, I met up with one of my good friend and photographer colleague, Peter Tran of Icons Photography. I have to admit, not everyone can pull off his awesome style.
…talking about style, check out his moves in this next photo.
Congratulations again to the both of you. It was our pleasure to be your wedding photographers here at Westridge Golf Course in Orange County.
