Anchorage Wedding: Sami & Stephen

On Saturday I was at the Anchorage Museum, followed by a reception at the Pho Vietnam restaurant for Sami & Stephen’s wedding. We started off at their house, then the Sheraton Hotel for getting ready photos. Sami’s family is from Vietnam so their reception venue was a perfect choice! The Chugach Gallery in the Anchorage Museum is a great space for a ceremony – It was my first ceremony there (photographed receptions before) and it was nice to have some modern finishes and lines to work with. If you’re looking for a cool venue, call Erin at the Museum and she’ll hook you up!
At the reception they played the shoe game, where someone asks a question of the bride and groom, and also in this case, Stephen’s daughter, something like “Who snores the loudest?” or “Who never picks up their mess?” Each person has a shoe of the other person or people, and holds up the shoe of the most guilty individual. They can’t see each other though. It was fun to watch – sometimes they all agreed, sometimes there was no agreement at all!
