Recently Leah Langley Photography had the pleasure of working with Pearl White Events and Catherine and Ryan, a sweet couple hosting a two day, two wedding weekend.
The first day was a colorful, unique Vietnamese Wedding and Tea Ceremony, which included a very intricate dance of presenting gifts, an introduction of the groom, presentation of the bride, honoring ancestors and presentation of tea to both Catherine and Ryan’s families.
In addition to the wedding parties beautiful attire and colorful gifts, the importance of honoring family is very special to watch.
Preparations began early on the second day with the bride and groom wearing a completely different attire for the second day of festivities.
Catherine looked breathtaking in her lace and tulle ballgown with a few sparkling touches; with Ryan looking handsome in his classic black tuxedo, pink bow tie and matching boutonniere.
A Catholic Nuptial Mass as St Philip Phan Van Minh in Orlando followed with a very simple, yet elegant wedding ceremony in this beautifully adorned Orlando church.
The couple and their guests made their way back to the spectacular 225 acre Rosen Shingle Creek Orlando for some photos and an evening of dinner and dancing.
The ballroom looked spectacular with flowing drapery, beautiful lighting and inviting cream, gold, and pink décor.
After their First Dance, Catherine and Ryan took a place of honor at a raised Sweetheart Table. Surrounded by pink draping, pink and white floral arrangements and their spectacular four-tiered wedding cake; and had a visit from a special guest.
Following the delicious dinner and a night of dancing the couple cut their wedding cake and closed out the evening with a traditional bouquet and garter toss.
We are thrilled to have been part of this beautiful wedding weekend.
