As a newlywed celebrated their union, a thief walked into their reception and stole cash gifts totaling around $20,000.
Anh Bach and Kenny Diep were married over the weekend and moved their reception to a Rosemead restaurant where they hosted more than 250 people.
Bach says gifts of money were placed inside a heart-shaped box near the entrance.
"We were by the entrance taking pictures with guests, quite distracted and quite busy at the moment."
Bach says that they planned to use the money on their honeymoon to Japan and Vietnam and payoff some their wedding expenses.
"It took us over a year to plan the wedding and a few years to save up for the wedding so something like this was devastating."
