Once upon a time, I got to capture beautiful memories at Christine and Alexander's fairy-tale wedding.

The bride and groom started their special day with a tea ceremony to honor their Vietnamese heritage. Then, surrounded by their loved ones again, the lovely couple shared a nice wedding ceremony at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. After that, Christine and Alexander had a fun time capturing group pictures with their wedding party as well as romantic couple shots in front of VEA in Newport Beach. This special wedding day ended with a memorable reception at Venue by 3 Petals. From morning to night, this wedding day was filled with love and joy -- and I was so happy to help capture all of the special moments. Cheers to Christine and Alexander!
