Jennifer and Quan’s wedding was the perfect example of a modern and chic one; drawing many influences from today’s wedding inspirations.  It has been a few months since capturing the wedding and we’re now reminiscing and feeling the good vibe from their epic day.   The wedding party of 28 began getting ready at Avenue of the Arts Hotel in Costa Mesa.  Jennifer and her bridesmaids eagerly got ready, helping Jennifer put on her gorgeous lace sleeve wedding gown by Galia Lahav.  To complement Jennifer’s laced-ivory wedding gown,  she opted for a romantic, soft up-do hair style & soft glam makeup by Linh of BoldFace Beauty.   Quan and his groomsmen were quite relaxed, while sipping on Cognac.  When time came for their first look, Quan’s first reaction to seeing his stunning wife under the towering canopy of evergreen trees was just priceless!

Next, the entire bridal party rode in a monster party bus with night club lighting and a killer sound system to Jennifer’s parents’ house for a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony.  Quan and his family were in perfect formation as they proceeded to Jennifer’s home bearing gifts. The couple exchanged gifts & presented tea to their parents and family members for their love & support.  Their Catholic ceremony at Saint Barbara Church was where they exchanged their eternal vows.

As husband & wife, they were ready to celebrate at The Christ Cathedral in their beautiful & electrifying outdoor wedding with 620 guests!   We were so lucky to have Maria at Top Event Planner as she executed all the logistical details of the wedding to perfection!  The venue was a perfect fit to the couple’s style. The outdoor venue, glassed encased steel building enhanced the floral décor below by A Flower Boutique and highlighted the large dance-floor & lighting by DJZ Productions .  The upbeat music, combined with the sharp lines, glass windows of the architecture and the energy of the audience all melded together to form the perfect modern wedding.   To fuel the energy of 620 guests, all were treated to a delicious 8 course meal by Seafood Palace, an ice cream treat by Hug Life & a share of Berries and Blush delicious cake . As the wedding guests gather & danced, we caught the couple sharing a kiss as they were serenaded by the famous Youtube singer, Lawrence Park.  And to make the day even better, it was also Quan’s birthday!  We’re sure that his new wife was the best birthday gift ever!
