Ayush and Minh's wedding in Vietnam.

This wedding couldn't be further from the kiwi summer celebration that I'm used to, but I loved every minute of it.   In Hanoi I often see couples posing for wedding portraits near one of the city's lakes or in front of a fancy jewelry store, so I was excited when the couple suggested something different - a trip two hours south to the intertwining rivers and caves of Tràng An.  We even docked the boat a couple of times and found some sweet spots amongst the foliage.  A few weeks later the big day arrived and Hanoi put on one of its mild not-too-grey winter days for us.  A full 14 hours jam packed full of tradition, family, music and dancing.  Three dresses, two bouquets, three venues and countless musical acts both dedicated to and performed by the bride and groom.  The icing on the cake was Minh's niece singing twinkle twinkle little star on stage. TWICE!  I feel so privileged that Ayush and Minh invited me to document their day, thank you both I will never forget it.
