Info on Wedding Party
Maid of Honor
After Anna moved back to SoCal, she met Emily where their love of food, videogames, and dogs, created a strong friendship.
Anna's younger sister.
Now that they are both in So Cal, these sisters go on random adventures together
Anna's longtime friend since elementary school. It has been said that they talk and act alike
Anna and Jessica bonded over the World of Warcraft trading card game, and the shared gaming addictions of their other halfs
With all the same interests, Andy is basically David's white brother. He's even getting married this year too!
He may have wanted to beat up his younger cousin when they were growing up, but now Patrick and David regularly spend time gaming and eating together.
This friendship started when David moved to Arizona and needed a roomate that could pay rent. A great choice was made. Now when they get together its all videogames and no sleep!
Part of a Band-of-Brothers-from-Band, these guys have kept in good contact with each other since High School.
Another band nerd brother! Look at his smile, you have to be friends with that right! Look out for his wife also as she plays a special role at the wedding.
And yet another band geek! Between band, classes and sports, these two spent way too much time together during HS. Now they spend their mornings on gtalk procrastinating.
After meeting at Track & Field practice, Andrew made the mistake of bringing David home where his mom fed The David. Now they can't get rid of him.
One of David's longest running friendships, Bryce is also another band nerd brother. Ask this Sgt Salsa for a dance!
David's Niece. The question is, are you smarter than this 5 year old?
David's cousins son. His father Matt helped David with his scheme to propose to Anna!
At Jen and Joel's wedding, Anna caught Jen's bouquet. It is now only fitting that she seals the deal and marries them.
In accordance with Vietnamese tradition, we are requesting gifts in the form of "Li Xi" (pronounced "lee see") / Lucky Red Envelopes. These envelopes are monetary gifts presented at social and family gatherings such as weddings, birthdays and holidays. During the reception, the bride and groom will visit each table and give thanks to their friends and family. During this time, the red envelopes are presented to the couple and anyone who would like to make a toast is welcomed to at that moment.
We will provide a Red Envelope upon entrance to the reception. Please feel free to take any remaining red envelopes as souvenirs/keep sakes.
For more information on the history of the "Red Envelope" visit the following page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/red_envelopeContact / RSVP
