So excited to share our strikingly beautiful bride Trinh and her bridal beauty look! Trinh is 3/4 Vietnamese and her husband is American. We just LOVE seeing different traditions and looks for ceremony and reception.

Trinh started off her wedding day with a traditional American wedding look. We had the one and only Ariel on makeup and lead stylist Melinda on hair!

“I loved both Ariel and Melinda! They arrived early and were amazing…Ariel gave me a beautiful, natural air brushed look since I usually don’t wear too much makeup and all of my bridesmaids loved their makeup since they rarely get it professionally done. I loved the way Melinda did my hair – it has never looked better! I have had my hair curled before, but no one was able to give me loose curls like her, with some hair pulled up to frame my face”

When I saw Trinh’s traditional Vietnamese wedding look, I literally gasped! The shade of red, the headpiece, the elegance is stunning! I had to know more…

“My red dress and headpiece is called an “ao dai” which is a Vietnamese traditional dress. My husband wore a modern, black ao dai with gold detailing as well. During the reception, it is tradition for the bride and groom to wear their ao dai to greet each table. We visit each table in our ao dai, speak to the guests, thank them for coming, and that is when they give their gifts to us. The bride usually wears red and gold since these are more symbolic of royalty and luck.”
