Nina and Matt’s Anniversary

October 18, 2013

Three year ago last week we had our beautiful wedding in Vietnam.  Many of our friends and guests took a long journey to come to Vietnam for our wedding, it was my dream wedding. We started out on the 10th of October with an early temple ceremony.

During the tea ceremony, I had to translate to Matt the wedding wishes from our head monk.

It was a surreal experience to be walking on this beautiful bridge towards the ceremony shrine with the chanting of the monks and the melody of the ancient Buddhist instrument in the background.

Being able to share my heritage with my husband and friends on our wedding day was a humbling experience.
