Linh & Vy

9.30.17

 Linh & Vy have known each other for 16 years, and knew their hometown of Portland, Oregon was the perfect setting for the big day. The inspiration was 'a wedding for the people,' and they definitely succeeded. The morning was filled with a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony, followed by a Catholic mass. The reception was full of surprises for their guests, including relay games, s'mores kits as party favors, coloring books for the kids...even a piñata! The biggest surprise of the day though? The llama and alpaca that made for the coolest bridal party of 2017.

in her own words...

"We were hiking in Griffith Park in July, and I was tired & hot. As we reached the end, I began jogging down the trail. Vy caught up to me and explained he was trying to propose. I continued running...and started laughing. Afterwards, we ate gyros and watched The Lobster at Los Feliz Theater. Oh yeah, and sometime in between all of that, I said yes."

THE BAINBRIDGE GOWN  |  Linh was not a bride that envisioned her dress. She tried on many different gowns with a variety of details and silhouettes before one stylist said, "Maybe you are looking for the wrong style." Shortly thereafter, Linh found Bainbridge, which checked all of her boxes.

"I loved how this dress felt! It was so soft and flowed beautifully. Simple, elegant, & timeless. It was the first gown I tried on that made me feel like myself and bridal ready."
