“I love literature and ever since i first visited the Hemingway Home i knew i would get married there – the greenery, art deco architecture, Hemingway’s history, etc. All those factors made me fall in love with the place. So the minute i got engaged I called the venue and asked for availability and that was it. As far as the theme it was a given. Hemingway lived there in the 20′s, so prohibition art deco fun was in the menu.”

I recommend doing the First Look and Family photos (if agreed) prior the wedding for several reasons:
1.- More natural light available
2.- More photos of the couple
3.- You can enjoy the Cocktail hour with family and friends instead of posing for photos.
4.- way more relaxed.
Coming from Vietnam at age 7, I spent the rest of my childhood in the Bronx, where I didn’t get to venture outside the city much. Although Andrei grew up in Moscow, another big city, before going to high school in the U.S., his family instilled within him the love of the outdoors, which he proceeded to pull me into when we began to date in New York. To seal the deal, he proposed to me on a hike in Torres Del Paine in Chilean Patagonia, most likely to guarantee at least one more hiking trip together post-marriage.

During October 3rd to 9th 2013 I assisted Espacio Pilar in Buenos Aires, a Premier Argentine Art Show where I was one of the exhibiting artists showing my personal art work with great reception and success.
I hope to return next year with lots of art, sculpture, paintings and mix media.
