Wedding at St. Joseph’s Chuch in New Orleans with Mei and Hieu
Mei and Hieu took their first trip together 2 years ago to England and France. They enjoyed everything about it especially Provence. So the theme of their wedding is the French countryside. Since Hieu is the talented one in the relationship they decided for him to make their own invitations and church programs. He drew all the flowers, embossed and hand painted all 200 invitations.
“We became friends during undergrad at Xavier University. We met through mutual friends. Hieu and I were in our own relationships at the time. When both ended, we became closer as friends and decided to be more than friends. We have many small funny moments throughout our relationship. Hieu is the talented and carefree one in the relationship. I just help him reach items on the top shelf =D. Hieu doesn’t know how to wrap presents so instead he used 2 different colored post-it notes to wrap a large box. According to Hieu, cats have a favorite fruit…it’s a persimmon.
11.12.13: Hieu and I went out to dinner with close friends and family at Mondo. After dinner, Tim Pham invited us to join him at the Lakefront to help him scout the area for his next photoshoot. This was probably the coldest and windiest night I can remember. We all arrived and got out the car. Before I knew it, everyone formed a close circle around Hieu and I and backed away. Music started playing and he took my hand. Hieu’s brother placed a small pillow on the cement and Hieu got on one knee and said a few things before he popped the question.” – Mei & Hieu
