edifoto7As a Las Vegas Wedding photographer I am always excited to photograph traditional weddings. I was really excited to photograph Tuyen and Jacob’s Vietnamese wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Las Vegas.
According to the Vietnamese tradition the celebration started with a tea ceremony the day before the wedding, where the groom’s family made a trip to the bride’s home with gifts to officially ask permission to receive the bride, than after paying their respects to their ancestors, followed by a tea ceremony.
On Tuyen & Jacob’s Wedding day we started with getting ready images at the bridal suite and than in the grooms room and walked around property to get some images of the bridal party separately before their wedding ceremony.
Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, their wedding location is the only Forbes triple five-star luxury hotel at the heart of The Strip, with breathtaking views of the city and the desert, the hotel offers the perfect mix of style, serenity and luxury. A stylish location set against the glittering back drop of the bright city lights.
Keri Keep, Catering Sales Manager, and Anthony made sure that the couple doesn’t have to worry about anything else, just enjoying their wedding day.
After the ceremony and family pictures we went to take images with the wedding party together and just the 2 of them around the property before we headed back to their reception.
Special Thank you to Zoltan from Zoltan Art and Photography to capturing images with me during the wedding.
Tuyen, the bride changed into three different gowns during the reception. She wear a beautiful princess Western white wedding gown during the ceremony and the first part of the reception, a second Western dress at the end of the evening and during the dancing, and a third traditional Áo dài during the traditional table visits.During the reception, the groom and bride visited each table to thank their guests for coming. In return, the guests gave envelopes containing wedding cards, money gifts and a blessing to the newly wedded couple.
After there was the time to have some fun on the dance floor with the lead of their DJ, Arlene from Sound Fusion Entertainment .
