from our engagement session with melody & nhan, we knew we were in for a fantastic time at their wedding and boy, were we right! this adorable duo is a barrel of fun! we began our morning with the bride and her lovely bridesmaids at the hyatt in downtown sacramento. the bridal suite was a bustle with all the preparation for the ceremony and mel could barely contain her excitement, it seemed. she was absolutely glowing and grinning from ear-t0-ear the entire morning!
one of the reasons we love downtown sacramento is because of the high concentration of such cool locations for events/photo shoots in a span of a mere handful of blocks. mel & nhan were wed just a couple of blocks away from their hotel at the stunning cathedral of the blessed sacrament. afterwards, we headed to chavez park for photos of the newlyweds and their bridal party.
to pay tribute to nhan's vietnamese heritage, the couple also decided to celebrate their union with a traditional tea ceremony which was hosted at nhan's parents' home in elk grove, just before heading to their banquet reception at rice bowl. the food was yummy and plenty, which was great for their 550 guests!
congratulations, melody & nhan! we hope you both are lovin' the married life!!!
