"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone..."
"Hi, I'm Chie!"
We recently got engaged in Vietnam...🇻🇳
Here's how we met:
It's day three of the Austin City Limits festival 🎸and the sun begins to set. Vincent was taking his last photo of the concert when a girl nearly tripped over him walking by.
They looked back at each other and locked eyes.
After a moment, she approached Vincent and said, "Hi, I'm Chie!"
In the last five+ years, we have been fortunate to share our love for experiencing foreign cultures, sharing new cuisines, and documenting the world around us. It is through these collective experiences that we have decided to take you with us on our wildest adventure yet! 🚀

✈️ ✈️ ✈️
Think of this wedding as a launchpad or final destination for your next big trip!
This is your excuse to put the brakes on life…
Chie will show you why a Bahn Mi 🥖 is the best way to start your day…
While Vincent shows you how to put out a vibe 🕺🏻 at a Viet street cafe…
However, we understand most of you have children, pet-children, careers, and more, that make a trip like this unlikely. Don’t fret! We might have a second celebration dinner in Florida shortly after we return.
Suggested Itineraries + Extra Travel
(from easiest to hardest)
To maximize your trip here are some suggested itineraries:
USA ✈️ Hanoi ✈️ Ho Chi Minh City (+1 day)
See the entire country by taking a quick flight to the country's
largest city in southern Vietnam,
USA ✈️ Hanoi ✈️ Japan (+2 or 3 days)
Japan is our 2nd favorite country and connecting through Japan
is cheaper than flying direct to Vietnam.
USA ✈️ Hanoi ✈️ Thailand ⛵ Ko Phi Phi (+1 week)
Thailand is the easiest country to travel to with visa's on arrival.
However, give yourself extra days to explore outside of Bangkok.
Take a boat to Ko Phi Phi, where Vincent once worked as a booze cruise photographer!
USA ✈️ Hanoi 🏍️ Phong Nha 🏍️ Hoi An (+2 weeks)
Take our engagement motorcycle/scooter trip along the famous Ho Chi Minh Trail south to Phong Nha, home to the largest caves in the world, and then to Hoi An,
Vietnam's honeymoon town.
