Westin Langkawi Beach Wedding: Justin & Nicole

While the team is in Langkawi yet again for another wedding today, we thought that it’d be wonderful to share another set from a wedding at the Westin, Langkawi. The peach, pastel tones of the bridesmaids’ outfits look so sweet against the earthy tones of the beach. I also like how the coffee beans were a feature in their ring box (reflecting the coffee addict in Nicole!) – not only did it look good, it smelt heavenly too! Here’s how one coffee encounter led to something bigger and better…

Like most relationships, we got together through a combination of luck, perseverance, and fate. We were introduced by a mutual friend, but it was not exactly like sparks flew the moment we met, especially since Nicole had one dating condition – no dating lawyers!

Through luck (Nicole accepted Justin’s friend request and actually replied to his Facebook messages), perseverance (constant spamming by Justin on Facebook) and fate ( we were both single then), we went out one fateful day for coffee. Coffee turned into dinner. Dinner turned into missed appointments for the day. It felt like we had so much to share that day (Justin: so much that I held my need to pee for a good 5 hours). That was the start of a beautiful relationship.

It hasn’t always been easy, but we’ve both realized that tolerance and giving in has been the reason we still love each other very much every day. Justin is now a pseudo coffee addict (he secretly prefers Teh Tarik more) while Nicole is a pseudo active gym member (She spends more time on social media than the treadmill). It also helps that we share loads of common interests- our dog, traveling and just being lazy, and we make a good team – Justin manages the finances, and Nicole everything else.

For us, we know that no matter what happens, how annoyed we are with each other and how stressful our day has been, it will always be alright because we have each other.

Lovin’ You Like Coffee in the Morning: Chee Kiang & Jolene

A wedding that had a lot of heart and planning in it. From her Pinterest boards to frequent discussions with friends…Jolene gave her all as she planned her wedding. I loved the many DIY details that were present at her wedding and the coffee theme that was very strong (pun intended!) at the dinner reception. People who are coffee lovers know that people who love coffee group together like a cult. It was great that they even had a booth to serve cappuccino and lattes during the cocktail session before dinner.

The outdoor wedding ceremony was held at Holiday Inn Glenmarie. About an hour or so before the wedding was supposed to start, it poured. Even though the wedding set up was shielded under a gazebo, still, the rain poured in through the sides. But Chee Kiang and Jolene didn’t panic. It all turned out well in the end because the rain stopped in time, and there was a cool breeze that enveloped the place as they said their vows.
