Hien and Rob’s fusion wedding couldn’t have been more personal as it joined two different cultures and two different families together in one backyard in Ontario. The bride honored her Vietnamese background by donning a traditional red gown for the first part of the wedding ceremony, before changing into a sleek Maggie Sottero gown for the Western ceremony and reception. Luckily, photographer Sean McGrath was present to capture everything from the outfit changes to the quiet giggles shared between the newlyweds on their big day.
Hien and Rob
Private Residence, Ontario,
With two ethnicities uniting, we wanted to respect both traditions in terms of ceremony. So we had a traditional Vietnamese ceremony in the morning and then I was able to walk down the aisle to Rob in the afternoon.
But we wanted to have one big party for our reception! Drinking and dancing is a universal language that everyone can connect to! The fashion and decor reflected that as well. The fashion was elegant, lightweight and movable for the dance floor!
We both agreed that our favourite moment from our wedding was when we first saw each other. At that moment, we knew how much we’ve been through in the past 8 years and how much love there is and always will be. It was in that moment, we knew that we were going to spend the rest of our lives together and the vows we were about to say are words we will forever hold true.
The Couple Recommends:
Sean McGrath is hands down the best thing that happened to us for our wedding. When we were looking for a photographer, we had a specific style in mind. We wanted our day documented through moments and not poses. We wanted timeless editorial shots and he gave us that and more.
Sean exceeded our expectations! He was so easy to work with, he captured the best moments and he was a blast to have around. His work/portfolio speaks for itself and we would recommend him a thousand times over to anyone looking for a photographer that will take pictures that will last a life time.
