We are born, we live, we die. In the midst of this marvelous journey, if you find that one special person who’s ready to share the life with you, lifts you when you feel down, laughs at all your silly jokes and leaves the last bite of the pizza for you, you are one of the lucky ones.
Vivian Nguyen, a Vietnamese girl, met her dream guy, Steven Grover who is of Indian origin, online in San Francisco. Despite their cultural differences, they managed to prioritize love over everything, which got them to tie the knot in Le Meriden Koh Samui. The couple performed the nuptials in three different styles- Vietnamese, Hindu and Western.
The fun-filled 3-day affair was designed and organized by the incredible team at Bliss Events Thailand. The venue was beautifully decorated keeping in mind the cultural aspects. The concept behind the wedding was to tap into the different nationalities’ traditions and combine them into one big memorable fiesta.
The next day started with a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony. The bride and groom wore the traditional Vietnamese wedding attire, ‘Ao Dai’ accompanied by a circular headdress called a Khan Dong. The Buddhist Monk ceremony took place which officially tied them together for the journey of life.
The Western-styled wedding was conducted at the Ocean Pier of the hotel. We love the color-coordinated dress from both the bride and groom’s squad. The couple said ‘I do’ in front of their friends and families. The hashtag #OvertoGrover perfectly describes the level of excitement the couple has for each other. The fairytale lights lit the mood for the romantic reception where the couple performed their wedding dance.
The Indian ceremony was done in lustrous green laws with subtle decor by Bliss Events Thailand. Memories like this are once-in-a-lifetime, and Vivian and Steven ensured that they cherished all the ceremonies with utmost pleasure. They both chose to go white for the Hindu ceremony which made them look stunning in contrast with the green background.
