Yoong & Dan–Seattle Wedding at Colman Park!

Yoong and Dan are very nice, sweet, funny and married!  I had a great time with them.  I started photographing at Dan’s family home in Seattle.  There was a traditional Vietnamese ceremony and celebration, including amazing homemade Vietnamese foods. 

The American wedding ceremony was at Colman Park in Seattle on the shores of Lake Washington.  They had some of the most amazing waterfront trees there as well as great views of the lake, which really worked for me as the photographer.  After the ceremony we took a photo tour of Seattle and went to Kerry Park on Queen Anne hill for some Space Needle images. 

Finally, we made our way to Renton for a nine course meal as well as some traditional and newly invented games at Tea Palace

I love the color of the traditional Vietnamese outfits.  I find hands to be very expressive.

I asked a bridesmaid to see on the tree.  They started to climb and position themselves.  I went with it!
