Traditions to Tie the Knot
Ask about our Traditions to Tie the Knot offering, in which Bell Harbor can replicate a meaningful cultural custom during the ceremony or reception, or re-create a family recipe for your guests. Many brides want mom’s special pie on their big day, but also want mom to be able to relax and take in the full experience. Now they don’t have to choose!
For Garret and Uyen Foster, their Vietnamese-American wedding incorporated customs from both sides, such as Vietnamese table greetings in their traditional "ao dai," and for the bride’s dad and his friends to have Remy Martin VSOP cognac (a Vietnamese wedding must). The staff was able to assist in executing the greetings, and it created the unique experience for guests that the couple had hoped for.
