Vietnamese Wedding and Little Theatre Reception - Kansas City, Missouri Wedding Day Photography

Here are just a few of my favorites from Emily and Paul's Wedding Day!
They had a private Vietnamese Ceremony at her parent's home! It was a busy and very early morning for the ladies! Family members worked in the kitchen downstairs preparing quite the feast for the celebration. After the traditional elements were complete, we headed to the church for the Catholic Ceremony! Emily had a quick dress change into a Stella York fitted lace gown! Simply GORGEOUS! Check out all of their details below! Links to all of the wedding professionals that helped make their day perfect at the end of the post! Thank you so much Emily and Paul!


Emily got dressed and ready at her parents home, which is where the traditional ceremony would take place once the groom and his family have been "welcomed" into the home!

Emily is such a beautiful bride, inside and out! Her red gown was exsquisite! 

Getting everything ready for the bride!

It was a packed house! Family from all over the world gathered close to be a part of this day!

The family had special readings for Emily and Paul!

One of my favorites!

After the ceremony, we snuck away to the side yard for some portraits! Such a stunning couple!

Emily and all of her girls! 

Heading to the church!

Arriving at the church.

The church's getting ready room has a large mirror - it reflected back everything and everyone in the room, so I used off camera flash to only illuminate her traditional white gown for the Catholic Ceremony. 

It's a party and everyone wants a photo of Emily! HA! Emily had quite the videographer team at her big day!

The ceremony...

Emily and Paul love Loose Park and we were so lucky that the Rose Garden was open on a Saturday! I LOVE these portraits of them!
