Lovy & Steve’s Engagement

I had the honor being 1 of 2 photographers, photographing Lovy and Steve’s Dam Hoi, which is a traditional Vietnamese engagement. Before the ceremony, the future groom’s family lines up in a procession with their gifts in tow, which includes but not limited to, a roasted pig, cookies and sticky rice. During the ceremony, the families are introduced and served tea as a sign of respect. The groom then asks for the future bride’s hand in marriage and the gifts are presented.

It was one of the hottest days of the week which did not bode well with the men in suits.

Gifts galore!

The roasted pig symbolizes the celebration feast that will ensue after the ceremony.
