Lieu and David married early this spring. Their wedding was rich with colours, family, and traditions — Vietnamese meets Canada’s east coast. We couldn’t resist sharing some of the gorgeous details and some of our favorite moments.
After some lunch, Lieu changed into her gown and David into his suit for some portraits and for the evening’s reception. Lieu and David opted for a first look so that we could capture David’s reaction of seeing Lieu in her gown for the first time. So much emotion and passion!!
Lieu and David’s evening was full of special events and surprises. Having spent some time during the day celebrating Lieu’s heritage, it was time to celebrate David’s. David’s parents prepared to “screech-in” Lieu — a Newfoundland tradition to welcome someone from the mainland or “away” into the fold. It involves doing a shot of “screech” (which essentially a local rum), repeating a crazy tongue twister, and kissing a cod fish. And did we mention that you have to do this donning a sowester?
Lieu and David — thanks so much for allowing us to document your day!
