This Vietnamese wedding isn’t just stunning, it includes a beautiful love story (and you know we’re all about those). Xu & Hieu were married in the city in which Hieu confessed his crush, making it that little bit more special. They said their I-do’s in a secret pine forest, with just their closest family and friends surrounding them. We absolutely adore the rustic colour scheme and vibe, with little pops of burnt orange throughout. Oh, and that sparkler exit!? Yes please! We love Xu’s Hollywood vintage styling, which looks stunning alongside her bridesmaids deep green gowns. Do not miss this one!

Vietnamese wedding in secret pine forest

The wedding was held at a city where our love story begins - where he first confessed to having a crush on me and the rest is history. In Vietnam, forest weddings are still something unfamiliar, yet we are fortunate to be the first couple getting hitched in our dream wedding place - a secret pine forest with just our closest and dearest family and friends. We were blessed to have all the love and support from our beloved people from the beginning of the planning process to mostly every setup and installation on the wedding day.

Xu & Hieu


Rustic and whimsical with a touch of intimate and coziness. Our dream wedding was to get married in the beautiful nature, a hidden forest in specific, and we took it as our main inspiration. The colour palette was chosen from the brownish hue of the earth; like brown soil, green leaf, cloudy grey sky, as well as the yellow sunshine.


Start the wedding planning early. Splurge on the best photographer. Ask for help from your beloved one. Don't sweat the small stuff because everything happens for a reason. Last but not least, enjoy every moment to the fullest :)

As a wedding planner, I have an expanding network of some of the greatest vendors and suppliers in the city. Our vendors are mostly our amazing friends so we already know that we are in good hands from day one. We also consider ourselves lucky to have a circle of pals offering to help. Most of the planning and detail work was done by our family, bridal party, and friends. Needless to say, we were able to pull it off to perfection and had the best day of our lives.

We love the groomsmen and their casual styling complete with braces! 

I love every moment of our wedding day. Everything was so beautiful and there was a mix of feelings. But I gotta say, the moment my father escorted me down the aisle was for sure staying with me for a lifetime. From how our favourite song was sung by our best friend during the procession to how everyone was smiling at me, my heart was pounding so fast. I have been dreaming about this wedding since high school, and that was the moment when I knew my dream came true.


This beautiful Vietnamese wedding and its secret forest location is just everything and more. Take a look at this stunning forest elopement in the Scottish Highlands, which included the couples dog!
