Our bridal party was awesome. They put up with wearing the traditional outfits, which, I’m sure was fun for the guys. Everyone wore traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai for the tea ceremonies and then changed into chocolate tuxes and cocktail dresses for the reception. (The girls all chose their knee-length dresses in shades from purple to pink.)
On top of that, each groomemen’s boutonniére matched each girl’s respective dress (it’s hard to see here). The girls all picked their own silver shoes and the guys rocked out in white shoes. Props included sunglasses (mainly aviators), fans, and a couple bouquets. It took forever for everyone to get dressed so I made a quick decision to be the only person changing at the reception. Because of the slow dressers, we also had limited time for group photos in downtown Lansing.
These photos were taken by Mitch Ranger.
In the traditional attire…
He bought argyle socks for the guys to wear with their chocolate tuxes, but they also wore them for the traditional dresses.
We told him we wanted shots that didn’t make sense – urban setting with graffiti and trash. I LOVED the location that Mitch chose!
This photo is badass… I love how he included the wiring above. There is a lot more to look at than just the typical guys staggered in a photo)
(I absolutely loved how the girls’ dress colors ended up in the pictures.)
I love them! Mitch did a wonderful job.
