Swoon! This is the wedding of Emily and Lonan. A beautiful American girl falls in love with a handsome Irish boy in the exotic location of Vietnam. My couples never cease to win me over with their delightful love stories.
There is so much to say about Emily and Lonan’s wedding. They chose the beautiful location of Ballyvolane House for their reception and ceremony under the trees mixing Irish and Jewish traditions. Smashing a wine glass under your foot isn’t as easy as it looks! Emily wore a Claire Pettibone which flowed off her petite silhouette and her bridesmaids dresses were custom designed by Emily’s favourite designer Hà Trùòng in Vietnam. Truly one of a kind.
It’s been Emily’s dream to perform a dance from Pride and Prejudice so along with their wedding party and a few close friends they surprised everyone with the coordinated dance accompanied by a string quartet in the garden after the ceremony. As most of their wedding party was scattered around the globe they each practised on their own time and it all came together smoothly on the wedding day. That’s some dedication I have to applaud!
A very sweet tradition they included was feeding each other cake from wooden spoons. Tradition was (in Norway) that the suitor made the spoons for the young lady, and at the wedding the bride and groom gave each other a bite of the wedding cake using the spoons. Tasty cakes by The Choux Box. And also thanks to Pearl & Godiva for some pretty styling.
A huge congrats to a beautiful couple!
