Kristy and Stephen’s wedding was a vibrant celebration of their relationship interwoven with details of their combined Vietnamese and Jewish-American cultures. Family flew in from around the country to celebrate, with Stephen’s brother officiating the wedding. Special reverence was given to the matriarchs of both families, with the groom’s aunt and mother leading the processional and the bride’s mother walking her down the aisle to the chuppah. The couple changed into traditional Vietnamese wedding garments called áo dài for the reception and shared a special wedding tea with guests. The evening culminated in a celebratory dance to the Jewish folk song “Hava Nagila.”
