My parents tied the knot exactly 45 years ago today. The bride looked beautiful in her lace Vietnamese dress (ao dai), and groom was quite handsome in his dark suit -- kinda reminds me of a young JFK.
5 children and 9 grandchildren later, they still hold hands when they stroll down the beach. To celebrate this momentous occasion, 130 close friends and family were invited to an anniversary party in their honor.
Lindi from Love the Day custom designed the sophisticated invitation, table number cards, food tents, patterned papers, and thank you card in sapphire (the 45th wedding anniversary gemstone) and gray. Large tissue paper pommettes by Carmen of Pom Flair, along with dozens of handcrafted pommettes adorned the backdrop of the photo area.
Guests enjoyed a dinner buffet, followed by live music and dancing. One of the highlights of the night was when my dad serenaded her with a couple of love songs. Wishing you many more years of wedded bliss, Mom and Dad!
