Wedding Crashers

By Mustachio @mustachio2011
Although the bride and groom are both Catholic, the wedding ceremony we witnessed was a traditional one held at the groom's house. The Church wedding happened weeks prior at the bride's hometown. I will not tell you every last details of the ceremony for I honestly drew a blank through most of it. It was in Vietnamese after all. To learn about a traditional Vietnamese wedding, you can read about it here.
