As you’ve probably figured out, Tim and I are visual storytellers – we love to tell others’ stories, beginning to end, through photographs. When it comes to weddings, we love to photograph our couple’s rehearsal and rehearsal dinner as often as we’re able. Oftentimes those photos aren’t ones you’ll put in an album to display for all to see, but they’re still ones you’ll cherish. We love giving the gift of beautiful photographs of every part of our couple’s wedding weekend. That’s why every one of our wedding packages feature all day coverage, by two photographers.

Each rehearsal and dinner we’ve photographed has been so different – some couples choose a formal dinner with multiple courses, while others serve barbeque in their backyard. Some simply enjoy a delicious meal while others choose to include a story-telling time where friends and family recount amusing and often poignant stories from the bride and groom’s lives. In Paige and Khang’s case, they chose to honor Khang’s family and his Vietnamese heritage by enjoying authentic Vietnamese dishes at their rehearsal dinner. His sister Nhi hosted their rehearsal dinner at Truc, an incredible restaurant that she and her family own. (If you’re in the Charlotte area, you need to check it out.) We had all sorts of goodness including spring rolls, crab soup, fried rice, quail and lobster. And they even brought out traditional pho for everyone who wanted to try it. Needless to say, the food was incredible. But it wasn’t simply a tasty meal in Paige and Khang’s mind – this was a beautiful way to honor the traditions and the family he grew up in, as well as give the rest of us a taste (literally) of the country he was born in. Thank you, friends, for sharing this day and this meal with us.

Come back soon for Paige & Khang’s wedding day! “Like” our Facebook page, if you haven’t already – You’ll be the first to know once we post their photos!
