Today, we highlight the vegan wedding of Nguyễn Minh Quang and Trần Phương Thảo in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam, and hear from the guests at the vegan wedding of Wu Zhi-Hui and T. Celestine, whose nuptials we covered last week. Quang and Thảo are aware of the negative impacts of animal consumption including environmental destruction, climate change acceleration and serious health issues. They have candidly and bravely convinced their respective parents to celebrate a plant-based wedding without taking the lives of sentient beings. This was the very first vegan wedding in Hải Phòng city, their hometown, and the couple has a passionate message to those of their generation who are planning their weddings: "We are very satisfied today by successfully hosting a vegan wedding because we proposed to have a nuptial banquet without involving in killing sentient beings. And this is the greatest joy for both of us. Animals and all beings are also cheerful for our happy day, and there was no bloodshed at all. Therefore, young friends, please try to have more vegan weddings like us today, so that we can save more animal friends." Some might hesitate in the beginning, being concerned that their guests may refuse or reluctantly attend a plant-based wedding banquet. However, as we will see from the following attendee reactions, it will all turn out great thanks to delectable, healthy food without the animal-killing energy. Guests of the newlyweds from both vegan weddings now share their thoughts with us: "Great! So good, so healthy." "I am Jonathan from Australia. I work for an NGO (non-governmental organization) in Taiwan and our focus is on protecting animals. So, it’s quite related to today’s wedding. This is my first time participating in a vegan wedding. I think it’s beautiful to have a wedding that represented their values; being [they are] such compassionate people. So being able to enjoy that compassion with everyone today was a great moment. Absolutely, I think more and more people are thinking about the impact their diet has on the environment, on animals and on their health. Having a vegan wedding is definitely a great way of doing that."
