After the first wedding we had couple of days relaxing in Vientiane, before the craziness of the one the most enjoyable parties. The Buddhist ceremony, celebrating Tom and Vonesili was one never to forget.

Tom and Vonesili Wedding #1

So 1 month before, I receive a phone call from Tom in Laos. The conversation is too inform that wedding plans are in motion for Vonesili and himself, “congratulations, when?” I ask. “In just under a month” Tom reply’s. I shake my head. Sigh in disappointment. I explain the impossibility of flying from Melbourne to Vientiane for his wedding. Tom leaves me with the final words, “Baino, we don’t have a photographer for the wedding, make sure you bring your camera over to take the shots.”

2 weeks pass.

Still frustrated at missing a great friends big day, I decided to tempt myself by checking flight prices. Specials on sale right then to Bangkok, 30 minutes to book. It seemed like it was meant to be. 30 minutes later, a few phone calls, and flights were booked for 6 friends to depart to Bangkok. A night at the wonderful Atlanta hotel, then onto Laos.

Soon we were being picked up in a mini bus on 40+ degree day, sweat raining down, suits wallpapered to your body, in what became the first of two wedding celebrations for Tom and Vonesili.
