In the middle of busy Saigon, Nguyên and Dũng’s pick-up the bride ceremony was a soothing note for one’s soul. It was a traditional ceremony of simplicity, purity and harmoniousness.
The warm color of wood along with a neutral palette for decoration, all blended in a Wabi Sabi-styled space to create a tranquil and restful feeling for the ceremony.
For this concept, we used Vietnam’s national flower – white lotus, combined with monochrome yet exquitsite flowers such as white rose, white phalaenopsis and especially gardenia – a symbol of graceful strength and noble love.
These flowers were arranged as naturally as possible, based on each’s shape and form, in order to convey a genuine, authentic and elegant feel just as they are.
Furthermore, as the couple and their family follow Buddhism, the calligraphy for this concept was inspired by the handwriting of the Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.
The ceremony was a harmony of nature and human, of a traditional atmosphere amidst the busy Saigon.
In addition, the ceremony’s concept was an euphonious harmony which reached every sense; an ethereal decorative atmosphere, the pleasant scents of birdsong and incense, the nostalgic taste of traditional snacks.
For people of modern lifestyle like Nguyên and Dũng, “Sen Tịnh” was a serene pause, a reposeful moment for their souls so that they could take a deep look into their inner side during such an eventful day.
