Caitlin wanted to incorporate she and Alex’s background culture into the wedding. Last post, we saw Buddhist ceremony and Lion dance. Today, I will be showcasing the details.

First of, the culture of Chinese/Vietnamese/West was well demonstrated in 3 gown Caitlin wore throughout the day.

I love the detail of Caitlin’s wedding gown. It looked great hanging and looked amazing on her.

I love Caitin’s hairdo. Jonathan did an amazing job. This is the 2nd time we worked with Jonathan. Our first time was with Mai Han & Tim’s wedding early 2007. BTW, we will be photographing Mai Han & Tim’s baby in couple months 🙂
