sophia + truc // wedding . charlotte nc


Sophia & Truc's day started with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony. Truc's family met Sophia's family with wine & gifts in her "village" - or in this case, her hotel room since they were far from their home in New York :) - & took her back with them to their house for the rest of the ceremony.





After their procession into the house, they performed an incense & tea ceremony.






Later that afternoon, we met back up with Sophia & Truc for the American ceremony at [ the Lodge at Ballantyne ]. Loved all of Sophia's details - the dress, shoes, & flowers by [ Crawford & Company Florist ] were gorgeous! Plus, I am always a fan of purple as a color theme for weddings - so fun!



I say this all the time, but this great light during the ceremony is further proof of why I love outdoor ceremonies!



The new Mr. & Mrs. :)




We found a sweet parking deck across the street when we were scouting locations & LOVED how well it worked for photos!


Usually it's the bride who does the "foot popping," but Truc totally worked it! hehe. ;)


I adored all of the details Sophia put together for the reception. The apples & pears, the menus - everything looked so fabulous, creative, & well put together. [ The Ballantyne's ] in-house catering provided the dinner & even put together the wedding cake. I was very impressed!



Sophia & Truc used chocolates from [ Jacques Torres ] in New York as cute & yummy wedding favors/seating cards.


How adorable are Sophia & Truc together?? These next two photos put a big smile on my face. :)





Thanks again & congratulations, Sophia & Truc!
