Andrea and Hoan’s Wedding: Some Highlights

On a beautiful day in Mississauga, I was on the job to shoot Andrea and Hoan’s Vietnamese inspired wedding reception. The guests were filtering in rapidly and like any other wedding day, we were pressed for time. I had done a short pre-scout of the location and spotted a few beautiful angles we could use that were within walking distance of the the premise of the Blue Lagoon Seafood Master!

In total, we spent around 15 minutes before rushing back into the reception hall where 200 guests were getting seated. The bride and the groom had already set up a backdrop with their initials on them. Cute idea! The guests would then take their photos with the newly weds and proceed to their table where drinks were being served! Notice Hoan’s cool expression in this photo!

I love the moment when the couple perambulate into the ballroom for the first time. It’s royal and impressive! Andrea and Hoan then proceeded to sit at their designated table next to their bridesmaids and groomsmen.

From my experience, music is an indispensable part of the Vietnamese culture. No surprises for having karaoke and dance throughout the night with both Vietnamese and English songs!

And then there was the first dance…
