Janice + Thang | NOVA 535 | Tampa Wedding

I went down to Florida to attend my cousin's wedding as guest, but also makeup artist and being a third photographer in between. Let me tell you that that was one hectic day, between making the girls beautiful, but yet making sure I don't miss a moment of Janice's wedding. I was definitely all over the place and had to remember to breathe several times just to calm my nerves down and I wasn't even the bride! =P

It was a lovely wedding and there was some indication of rain for the day. It held out till afternoon sprinkling here and there but overall did not ruin the event. The day started off with a traditional chinese/vietnamese ceremony with groomsmen carrying trays of wrapped gifts over to bride's place. Some introductions took place while the bride's dad went to bring her out to stand next to groom and ceremony began. Then everyone traveled to the groom's place and the same ceremony repeated for the groom's side of the family to celebrate.

While everyone was done with lunch and rest for the evening reception, I grabbed the bride and groom for some portrait session, but first did a quick updo for Janice. It was a pretty funny session to say the least, since Janice alone loves to joke around. However, I was still able to get some serious photos from them. =P

Then it was time for the evening portion of the day for the traditional American ceremony to start. The venue was at Nova 535 - gorgeous venue that featured artwork from local artists around the area. The details that went into the reception were apparent and alot of hard work went into it.

My sister did the programs as well as the place cards.
I thought they came out beautifully!

That wraps it up! There were a ton of pictures, but then again, the day started at 6am and didn't end until midnight. I hoped you enjoyed the wedding as much as I did! Congrats to Janice + Thang! Have an awesome honeymoon in Hawaii.
