I don’t even know where to begin describing this fabulous wedding at the relatively new Yoshi’s San Francisco.  I knew this was going to be a great night from the minute I met Khiem & Xuan Dai.  They are both highly accomplished in their high-tech careers and fabulous artists as well.  Their goal for their wedding was not only to celebrate themselves and their love, but to really have a chance to give of themselves to all of their friends and family and treat them to a wonderful evening by sharing their interests and their cross-cultural Vietnamese & Western backgrounds.  From the small details to the large events of that day, everything was planned with this in mind.    Since Khiem is a wonderful photographer himself (no pressure on me or anything! 😉 ), his photographs graced all of the tables in the restaurant, each highlighting a country he has photographed, as well as provided a beautiful ambient slideshow during the 4-course dinner.  They both share a passion for art & music, and so immediately following the ceremony, the guests were invited to enjoy a fabulous concert that included Taiko drumming, traditional Vietnamese music, and none other than Xuan Dai herself blowing everyone away on the violin (Xuan Dai’s father sang with her for part of it).  Later in the evening there was a performance by a breathtaking 12 and 16-yr-old ballroom-dancing couple, who you can also see in the photos below.  The gorgeous flowers by Ivy Vuong and seamless coordination by Elizabeth Bainbridge of 2 the 9s Events put the whole night over the top.  The perfect classy wedding for a truly classy couple – congratulations!
