Trinh The Duy and Truong Binh Yen (both born in 1994, living in Ho Chi Minh City) have always dreamed of a private wedding held in the forest.
On April 16 and 17, they were able to turn their dreams into reality. During the 2 years, the epidemic hit, the young couple’s marriage plan was delayed twice. But it is also an opportunity for them to prepare more carefully for the special day.
“We’ve been in love since high school, but our dating period was quite short. When I went to university, I studied economics in New Zealand, and Yen pursued fashion design in the US. During the COVID-19 pandemic, When my wife returned home, I took the initiative to make an appointment and “close the order”,” The Duy smiled and confided.
The pine forest by T’Nung Lake (Bien Ho), Pleiku, Gia Lai is the place both of them choose for their wedding.
According to The Duy, Pleiku is the hometown of him and his wife. The unspoiled, peaceful landscape and cool climate convince both of them to choose this place as a venue for wedding ceremonies, camping activities, SUP sailing and outdoor salty parties.
“Our wedding took place in 2 days and one night with the participation of 5 guests, who are my sister and 4 friends. After this intimate wedding ceremony, my wife and I will hold another wedding party in our family. traditional customs,” he confided.

The idea and each stage of preparation for the wedding is not only done by the couple but also with the enthusiastic discussion and contribution of friends. They are 2 photographers (one in Hanoi, one in Gia Lai), a decorator in Hanoi and a camping expert living in Gia Lai.
The group held several online meetings to agree on the plan. In which, 2 personnel must personally survey the site thoroughly. After that, each job has additional partners to support to ensure the feasibility and safety of the wedding.
“At 5 am on April 16, 2 people from the decoration group and a photographer from Hanoi had to go to the airport, go straight to the venue to arrange flowers until midnight. On the same day, 3 other people from the group were part of the group. Camping is in charge of carrying equipment, setting up camp, pumping SUP and preparing food.
Next, 2 photographers and videographers were present. The wedding photo set at the wedding is a gift they gave us to keep good memories.
In addition, the wedding dress was designed by my wife herself. It can be said that each member is an expert in their field, so they are very well prepared,” The Duy said.
The cool and dry weather supports the group of friends in outdoor activities.
From noon on April 16, the bride, groom and other guests were present at the wedding venue. All rest together and then start rowing SUP – the first activity of the wedding ceremony.
Around 6pm on the same day, the camping team helped to arrange food including salad, grilled chicken, lam rice, grilled ribs and pan-fried beef. Everyone dines on a banquet table decorated with candles and fresh flowers.

The next morning, April 17, Binh Yen’s bride woke up at 3:30 to put on makeup and change her dress. At 5:30, the whole group drank coffee to welcome the dawn, had breakfast, and began to enter the marriage ceremony.
The groom The Duy wrote the marriage vows and went to witness the first look (first time seeing the bride wearing a wedding dress). In the presence of witnesses and friends, the two read the vows, officially becoming husband and wife.
In the end, instead of performing the usual cake-cutting ceremony, The Duy and his wife planted a pine tree in the forest with the hope of green growth.
“When I took the paper to write the oath, I was so choked up that I couldn’t say anything, the emotions were indescribable. Normally, the two of us laughed and laughed all day, but when we read the oath, everyone cried and I was the one who cried more. I feel really happy to be able to organize such a special wedding,” The Duy shared.
“After the wedding ceremony, my biggest emotion is gratitude,” added The Duy.
He said his wedding could not be successful without the support and help of many friends and crew. Each member is passionate about the event, regardless of the long distance. It is their enthusiasm and sincerity that makes him and his wife very grateful and happy.
“I can see that everyone is excited and comfortable when participating in the wedding. This is an opportunity for them to get away from the city’s smog, participate in outdoor activities and return to nature. When my wife and I read our vows. , people also cry a lot. They give us the most sincere words from the bottom of their hearts. That is the most meaningful and greatest thing for us,” he said.

Have a plan
Recalling the whole journey of preparing and organizing the wedding, according to The Duy, the most important and difficult thing is how to maintain an excited mood for all members and guests to attend.
In addition, surveying the location as well as the weather is also an important job to help guide the decoration as well as activities throughout the ceremony.
“Many people ask us about our experience with outdoor weddings. With what we’ve done, I think everyone should plan at least 2 months before the ceremony. That’s just enough time for you to prepare. Everything is done with the utmost care.
Above all, in some activities such as camping or SUP rowing, you should seek the support of reputable units. They are experienced and fully equipped, helping to improvise before situations arise,” The Duy said.
Wedding in the presence of 5 close friends.
Sharing more about The Duy and Binh Yen’s picnic wedding, Mr. Nguyen Minh Sang (Robinsang), a member of the organizing team, also said that security and safety issues are very important.
According to him, it is possible that many people are very familiar with camping activities and have all the necessary equipment. However, camping combined with a wedding is of a different nature.
This is an event that not only requires safety but also has to ensure the complete integrity of the organization, type and material of tents. Each stage needs to be carefully calculated to help the members live smoothly and get the best photos.
“Our camping team had to discuss with the bride and groom more than 2 months in advance to choose the type of tent and location suitable for the party style. The wedding was held quite far from the main road, so the It also becomes difficult to carry things.”

However, according to Mr. Sang, the satisfaction and joy of everyone at the wedding is the driving force to dissolve all the fatigue of the support team.
“I am very impressed and interested in the activities of planting pine trees by the two young people on their wedding day. I hope such meaningful and humane activities will be spread,” he expressed.
