A glittery Cambodian-influenced post-elopement wedding party in Philly

Nei and Mike eloped in Las Vegas and then got weddinged three months later. Since Nei hails from Cambodia they each donned wedding wear from the country as a nod to her family's origins. Nei actually wore two incredible glittery dresses (one red, and one silver) and two tiaras — talk about bling! The couple and their family created nearly every detail, including the bouquets, red paper cranes (they had 500!), and tree branch centerpieces.
