Vietnam to Vaughn: Chris & Jen’s Engagement Celebration

We love culture: the food, customs, traditions, but most of all the amazing photographic opportunity it affords. When Jen & Chris asked us to shoot their traditional Vietnamese engagement we knew we were in for a very special event. 

The beautiful couple (or really their parents) filled the home with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends which made for a very intimate, although somewhat crowded, event. Chris's entourage arrived with an array of gifts… but we are sure the most special was the ring.

Introductions and formal requests/acceptances were made by the heads of the respective families, followed by a very spiritual prayer session. Perhaps the most memorable moment was when Chris formerly asked Jen to marry him. Her repose: the slightest shrug of her shoulders followed by a barely audible 'ok'. 

Well, we all know you both are much more than ok. You are an amazing and beautiful couple who have brought together two very loving families. Thanks you for including us in the first 'formal' step in your lives together.
