From the groom: “The marching in moment during our Malaysia wedding, walking down the aisle as the proudest man. I had the most beautiful woman next to me, and I have her, just to myself, for the rest of my life. (Exactly the same kind of feeling when I was young and my dad had just gotten me the limited edition of a Pokemon card. I paraded it in the classroom showing the world my new toy.)”

Tell us about your wedding! “We had around 1.5 years to plan out both Penang and Hong Kong weddings.  We were certain since the very beginning that we would want both our weddings to be created and designed around some oriental concept with innovative Chinese-inspired elements. Hence, we had the Old Shanghai theme (Burgundy) in Penang.”

Advice for future brides? “Think out of the box, and be creative and adventurous, stop relying solely on Pinterest, because you and your husband-to-be should be THE reason of how your wedding is. Pick something that reminds people of you and best describe your relationships. Don’t just settle for what looks pretty in other people’s wedding and that’s why you are doing the same. Go for something that symbolizes your love journey and the both you.”
