This is the first purely documentary wedding in a new serie I envisioned a year ago while (again) trying to define my objectives as a “wedding photojournalist” and by contemplating at the liberal usage of the term.

I was invited by my friend Thu to join his family for an authentic celebration in northern Vietnam’s province of Phú Thọ. Words cannot describe how much I am grateful to everyone who’s been so kind and welcoming to a total stranger and treated me like one of their own for 3 unforgettable, hot, September days.
