For An + Jeffery, the definition of their dream wedding was one that both honored their blended heritage and celebrated their modern style. These love birds are both first generation Vietnamese-American, so the traditional festivities such as a morning ceremony at An’s parent’s house and a tea ceremony were musts. Both sets of parents were wed in the traditional Vietnamese style, so it was important to be able to share that experience with their families. Pair these sweet traditions with a chic reception at Piedmont Park Greystone and you have a meaningful and sophisticated Vietnamese-American Fusion Wedding!
Brie Owens of Chancey Charm Atlanta was by their side during the entire planning process to bring this Vietnamese-American Fusion Wedding to life and pull in the perfect vendor team to execute all the details! Brie even helped An hunt down her dream BHLDN gown that she originally thought wasn’t going to be available until four days after her wedding. She said, “Brie Owens, went above and beyond and kept an eye on the dress, and even made calls to see if there was even a chance my dress was available. Brie called and told me there was one Maeve gown available online. Five minutes later, the dress was ordered and made it to my parents’ house (couldn’t let the husband see!) within a few days.”
Here’s Brie to tell us more!
An and I were sipping coffee at a little shop in Midtown on her lunch break, getting to know each other at our consultation in late February, 2016. I asked her to remind me when her wedding was… ‘May 21 of this year.’ Skuuuuuurt! I LOVE short engagements! We had less than three months to plan. An and Jeffrey were so incredible easy to work with and I couldn’t have asked for better clients for the occasion. They held a traditional Vietnamese ceremony at An‘s parent’s house the morning of the wedding, followed by a reception at Piedmont Park. Bold American delivered an incredible plated dinner for over 125 guests and Tulip created a myriad of elegant centerpieces that accentuated their color palette of navy, white and grey. Her dress was from BHLDN and she barely grabbed it in time for her big day! But it arrived and was the PERFECT dress for her to shine! When it was time to leave at the end of the night, everyone was having so much fun that we extended the party another hour! That’s always a sign of a good time!
