Markus + Hanh | Luang Prabang Wedding
Markus and Hanh are an American couple who lived in Vietnam for many years before returning to the US just a few years ago. Since they still have a lot of friends in Vietnam, but wanted a wedding with a little extra flavor, they arranged their ceremony to take place in lovely Luang Prabang, Laos. Luang Prabang is one of those rare gems of a town that has managed to remain fairly sleepy (it is Laos afterall) despite the growth of tourism and all the changes, good and bad, that brings. I first visited there in 1999, and its still charming and romantic as ever, with gorgeous golden wats littered among the leafy, quiet French colonial streets. The people are amazingly friendly, the food divine and prices very reasonable. If I was getting married, this would be very high on my list of destinations.
