a beautiful wedding day

Wedding morning began with a processional from a block away.
Included the groomsman and then all my family from parents to grandparents to aunts, uncles, cousins and all.
{The groomsman & red boxes being carried are traditional gifts for the bride's family.}
the flower girls/ringbearers got to wear the traditional dress.
They looked so cute.
Boy cousins
 My family
 girl cousins
 still time to play!
and have snacks
our temporary Vietnamese kiddos. :)
They called for thunderstorms, but thankfully it ended up being a perfect day.
It was actually nice & cool which was great.
Held in Phuong's sisters backyard.
The guys did SO much work that week to prepare!
My dad & Andrew built the pergola. The stone walk was laid, my brother remodeled their basement....yes, the worker bees were in motion!
My mom made 16 throw pillows for the reception, hemmed curtains & pants, made bow ties for the ringbearers....her machine was a'humming!
But it turned out beautiful, for sure.

My sis did such an amazing job - so proud of her!)

The reception was so fun! As everyone was waiting for the first dance, G decided to go out for a 10 minute solo routine - it was hilarious. As you can tell by his face, he was intense. :)

The kiddos did great with a long, full day. Thankfully we still snuck in great naps....we left the reception about 10pm - Eden had been out on the dance floor boppin', dancing with bride, being passed around....she loved it.

We wish you a very blessed marriage, Mr. & Mrs. O'Neil!
