Dental school is where Vien and Vincent’s love blossomed, meeting at a crawfish boil in 2014. Vincent won Vien over by charmingly recounting the first time he saw her.

For an unforgettable proposal, Vincent planned a trip to see the northern lights in Alaska, fulfilling Vien’s childhood dream. Despite winter weather making the lights elusive, Vincent persevered. His magical moment came around 3 a.m. “Needless to say, Vien got her dream proposal under the northern lights, and it made for an epic Instagram post,” shares the groom. Surprises continued in Houston with a combined engagement-birthday celebration for Vien.

The couple began their wedding celebrations with an intimate Buddhist ceremony honoring their Vietnamese and Taiwanese heritages, which Vien’s 93-year-old grandmother was able to attend.

On September 9, 2023, Vien and Vincent exchanged vows at their dream venue, The Astorian. The bride says, “I chose the Astorian because of how structurally beautiful it is. Even if we didn’t place a single flower in the room, the 1920s glamor and Art Deco design with inspiration from New York City’s Grand Central Station combined with the views of downtown Houston are enough to make a statement.”

The couple honored their roots by incorporating a lion dance, chào bàn, an Asian-inspired DIY beverage station, and a paper lantern sendoff, into the celebration, creating a breathtaking scene. Another sweet detail? A tooth-shaped ice sculpture, paying homage to their dental school roots. Vien dazzled in glass slippers as the couple rode off in a pumpkin-colored Jeep, a nod to her childhood love of “Cinderella.”

Congratulations, Vien and Vincent!
