I met Dao and Alicia through some mutual friends whom I had photographed years ago. I remember meeting and chatting with Alicia over the phone in between panels and films at Sundance in January, and immediately liking her during our little initial consultation. I was thrilled when they booked, and happy the wedding was going to be at Mt. Ida Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia where my parents live.
Dao, Alicia and I met for coffee a few days before the wedding and talked through all of the details of the day. Dao was hilarious, and seemed to see a lot through his excellent sense of humor, and Alicia has the brightest smile and laugh as she let Dao tease and poke fun. This humor and ease carried into their wedding day, and it was so much fun to be a part of.
Better yet, my talented sister Allie was able to assist me with the photography, and my brother Tucker was the DJ at the wedding, with our sister Emilie as his assistant. So it certainly became a family affair! 🙂
Enjoy these images of Dao and Alicia’s tender, deep love for each other, and the day they committed their lives to each other….
