A beautiful melding of two cultures, a stunning Adelaide Hills setting and a four legged ring-bearer – Sommai and Jarin’s gorgeous wedding day had it all. Oh, did we mention the bride does a dress change? You’re going to want to scroll down and check that out.
Sommi and Jarin made sure to incorporate important traditional touches to their wedding celebrations, whilst making the day a true reflection of themselves as a couple. Sommai says “Jarin and I come from different backgrounds and we felt it so important to incorporate both our cultures into the day.” They held a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony, Jarin smashed glass at the end of the wedding ceremony which is a Jewish tradition, and the whole reception got involved in a very rowdy Jewish Hora (traditional folk dancing) with the newly married couple.
The theme for their wedding started with simple Australian native flowers, and the couple wanted to showcase the best of South Australia food, wine and scenery to interstate and overseas visitors (oh, remember those days!?). This led to a relaxed and intimate wedding with a celebratory vibe. Their only wedding-day regret? “Not partying harder,” says Jarin.
Take a look at the gorgeous images below, shot by Tony and Tereza of Wilson and Lewis Photography. The couple say that their photographers “Were so down to earth and made us feel so natural in their presence. Because we met on a few occasions in the lead up, by our wedding day it felt like we were having friends over to chill!” Sounds like the perfect day!
