Modern City Chic Wedding in San Francisco

Vi & William’s Asian Art Museum wedding celebrations actually kicked off the day before with a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony at Vi’s family home.

When  the guys arrived they were given challenges to pass in order for Bill to get past the front door to see Vi. Challenges that, among other things, included dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and sharing some ring pops; a jump rope challenge; a race to down a beer through a straw; and, of course, good old-fashioned bribery.

Once Bill and the gang got through the door with the traditional offering of gifts. The following morning began at the Parc 55 Hotel in downtown San Francisco where they got ready for the big day. They held their ceremony at the beautiful St. Ignatius Cathedral on the USF campus and their reception was at the stunning Asian Art Museum.

From the Bride, “It was really important to us to that our wedding was a good representation of who we are. We wanted the wedding to be a mix of both of our heritages, a little bit of Vietnamese and Italian. We also wanted it to have a modern aesthetic while having classical sensibility.We chose to get married at St. Ignatius church because Bill really wanted to experience that sacrament. The AAM was chosen as our reception location because it was a museum dedicated to asian art set within a classically built structure. It was the epiphany of what we wanted represented.”
