Chrissy and Anthony’s multi-cultural wedding was a fun mix of classic details and artistic touches; there were so many personal and well-thought out moments during the wedding that we know you will absolutely love it and hopefully be inspired to make your own wedding a true reflection of you as a couple.
The entire wedding party got together for a “classroom photo shoot” before the ceremony, acting out their former high school personalities while dressed in wedding attire – it was the perfect way for everyone to relax before the wedding; the photos are priceless and hilarious!
Anthony’s Vietnamese culture was honored in the Catholic ceremony with the inclusion of a Vietnamese priest. Also in honor of his heritage, Chrissy changed from her traditional wedding gown into a Vietnamese Áo dài for part of the reception.
Staying true to the couple’s ‘mod’ personalities and love of the 80’s, Anthony was inspired by a scene from the movie “Some Kind of Wonderful”. He painted a picture of Chrissy and somehow talked the Phoenix Art Museum into letting him hang it on the wall. Expecting a normal visit to the museum, Chrissy was surprised when she saw the painting and he knelt down to propose! Here’s your proof that wedding coordinators are prone to genius: Victoria Canada Weddings and Events displayed the original proposal painting on a museum display card, as if guests were in a museum, next to the images taken during the proposal; they also arranged to have a replica of Anthony’s painting projected onto the dance floor.
Chrissy and Anthony created all of their own paper products and hand-painted their table numbers- love this artistic DIY Wedding inspiration!
The entire bridal party burst into the reception room to Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” complete with mustaches, sunglasses and other props- check out the video!
The video from Blue Shore Cinema is simply fabulous:
Congratulations Chrissy and Anthony and thank you for sharing your day with us!
