Nam & Tri | Los Altos History Museum Wedding

Classic, summer, outdoor, nature, and love, so much love. These are the words that come to mind to describe Nam and Tri's wedding day.

After the morning festivities, the second half of this gorgeous wedding began with the couple exchanging their wedding vows at the Los Altos History Museum, in a ceremony officiated by a family member.

To kick off the outdoor reception, the wedding party danced down the aisle, introducing the couple. Following their grand entrance, Nam and Tri danced under strings of lights. It was definitely a night to remember. The couple made sure their wedding was full of details most important to them—good food, music, and being surrounded by their closest friends and family.

Nam & Tri | Los Altos Wedding | Vietnamese Tea Ceremony

Nam and Tri started their wedding day with a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony to express their gratitude and respect for their families. 

Nam wore a traditional Vietnamese gown (Áo Dài) and hat, and Tri arrived with his groomsmen and family members to receive the bride in her home. Following the tea ceremony, which consisted of the burning of incense, praying to ancestors for their blessing, exchange of rings, gifts of jewelry for the bride, the bride and groom serve tea to their familes while they offer their well wishes and advice for the married couple. Family members are then invited to a reception at the groom's house, where a second tea ceremony is held, and lunch is served.

Stay tuned for the second half of their wedding day where they confirm their marriage and exchange vows at the Los Altos History Museum!
