Anh & Matt

May 30, 2016

Anh and Matt celebrated their wedding day by honoring their Vietnamese and Hawaiian ancestries with a tea ceremony in the morning, followed by a classic wedding ceremony at the Santa Clara University Mission Church.  Anh knew that she wanted a spring wedding filled with cherry blossoms, and the cherry blossoms certainly seemed to have gotten the memo for the weekend. With the cherry blossoms in full bloom – much earlier than normal for the year because of the early warm weather, Anh’s dreams come true for the late February wedding. Grand arrangements of cherry blossom branches lined the aisle of the church, created by the incredibly talented Jennie of Love Life + Bloom, and continued into the decor of the reception at the Westin Sainte Clare Hotel in San Jose.
