Truc & Minh

Saigon Maxim Restaurant

Philadelphia, PA


I've known Truc and Minh since college so I was ecstatic when they asked me to be their wedding photographer. While I knew that their wedding day would be a unique one, I truly had no idea what I was in for! 16 hours, three photographers, videography team, and nearly 500 guests. Yeah, it was a pretty epic day!

The one thing that I really loved about Truc and Minh's wedding is that it was all about family. Vietnamese culture places a huge emphasis on family and that's demonstrated by having two ceremonies, one at each family's home. The families also have a very unique method of exchanging gifts throughout the day which made for some great moments.

After the ceremonies, everyone ate lunch and we spent the afternoon at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Fairmount Park. The weather was absolutely gorgeous (besides being crazy windy) and it wasn't too crowded so it made for a great time.

The final stop of the day was at Saigon Maxim Restaurant near the waterfront. The venue was gorgeously decorated with bright and vibrant colors. You could tell how much time was spent paying attention to details for their nearly 500 guests. That's no small task!

A huge thanks to Truc and Minh for letting me capture their special day!
