How did Joel and Priyanka meet? Priyanka told us: “We’ve known each other for about 10 years, and we were mere friends. Joel was a city boy from KL and I was a “kampung-girl” from the jungles of Borneo, Sabah. We both attend the same church, the one we are getting married at, and often see each other in church. Just say hi and bye when our paths cross. One fine day, we bumped into each other in Bangsar and went for drinks. I guess that’s when I fell in love with Joel. It was followed by a few horror movies here and there, as well as a few drinks. A lot of drinks, adventures, trips to Sabah, injuries and surgeries later, here we are, getting married after officially dating for 5 years.”
They describe themselves as a couple: “We’re major foodies! As a couple, we are usually joking and laughing with or at each other-especially after a couple of pints of Guinness! On long drives, we can create our own games. We usually spend most of our time after work eating, drinking, and enjoying a chilled session with good music and being with family and friends. We recently got a dog who is a hyper-active yet loving companion. Her name is Ally Rosa. Together, we just love being with each other and enjoy each other’s company.”
On that wedding day, we shared lots of laughter with Joel and Priyanka and many beautiful moments. We shed tears when Priyanka danced with her father and when he passed her hand to Joel. And of course, the wedding ended perfectly with a lot of dancing and fun!
