On a hot, sunny June day, Somaly & Samnang (lovingly known as Maly & Nang) celebrated their first ever moments as husband and wife. As she recalled the first time they met during the ceremony, Maly began to cry. The pair has known each other for over 15 years, shared Long Island iced teas in clubs all over the world, got engaged on a beach in Bali, had a beautiful daughter Abzelle (quote from the bride: "She's the best thing ever"), and are so excited to spend the rest of their lives together.
They mixed American and Cambodian traditions, having a single-day wedding at a nontraditional venue, The Stevens Estate in Andover, MA. They had an American ceremony, then Somaly changed into a traditional Khmer bridal dress to collect envelopes full of money from their guests. From their doughnut bar, to the guests' talents in breakdancing and c-walking, to the hundreds of family members traveling from near and far to celebrate, last night was a night they will never forget!
Maly & Nang - your wedding was such an incredible experience full of SO many laughs and even more love. Abby is the luckiest girl to have you both as her parents - congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Kong! You're the bomb.com!
Thank you to all the amazing vendors!!!
