Wedding Anniversary at Rawa Island: Guillaume & Eve

Guillaume and Eve live in France. 15 years ago, they met during a hydrotherapy session when she was just 18. They were both there for skin treatment. Three years of living in separate locations didn’t divide them, it strengthened their love, and soon, they bought a house together just 5 minutes away from Disneyland Paris. Travel and adventure is in their DNA, and on August 15th, 2009, Guillaume and Eve decided to get married in Las Vegas, with just their photographer as their witness.

10 years later, they decided to renew their vows at Rawa Island, Malaysia with their 2 kids as witness. It was a really meaningful ceremony for them, as they had just gone through 2 years of challenges after discovering their son had ADHD and autism. Despite the initial rain, it was the perfect day for the 4 of them. It was a celebration of the love they share together, and the strength that they get from being one as family.

St Mary’s Cathedral Church Wedding: Joshua & TL

The evening sun crept into the side of the church, illuminating the pews in this beautiful church that was erected in 1894. 121 years later, it still serves as a house of worship and a place where couples walk down the aisle and say their vows to each other. Joshua and TL’s church wedding was one that was filled with meaningful touches, especially towards the end where they even had a surprise birthday celebration for Joshua’s father, who was the Bishop of the church.

After the ceremony, we managed to take some photos around Dataran Merdeka, which was pretty relaxing for the couple! From the photos, you wouldn’t have guessed that the grass was a little wet, too! Good thing that our reflectors acted as a nice ‘seat’ as well!

As for Joshua and TL’s story… we think it’s best you read their engaging write up below!

Strong Family Ties: Wedding Video Highlight of Adrian & Carol

It is every parent’s dream that the family stays close together. Not just being physically close, but emotionally bonded. Even after marriage when the children have left the home. I don’t think Adrian and Carol’s parents have anything to worry about in this department. The love and strong family ties they share will guarantee a good relationship that lasts till the next generation.

As photographers and videographers, we always say a silent ‘YES!’ (and mentally high five each other) whenever anyone crying at a wedding. But when both the bride and groom shed a tear, and their parents cry… well, I think that almost deserves a double high five. I guess we just love filming these moments because we know that years from now, they will cherish it as they relive the memories captured on camera.

Their story began years ago when Adrian was completing his studies in Melbourne and Carol was back in Malaysia, working. They didn’t actually know each other then, but Adrian connected with Carol on Facebook through her cousin. After he graduated, he returned to Malaysia and decided to connect with his new found friend, Carol. Many months passed and Adrian fell in love with Carol. He confessed to her one day telling her he liked her, but her response “Thank you!” confused him. After a few days of thinking it through, and going through her boyfriend check-list, Carol decided that she’ll give him a chance.

And so, this year, Adrian and Carol were married at DUMC. Their wedding dinner was held at Doubletree by Hilton with lots of song and dance! Enjoy their wedding video highlight!

That Indon Boy: Wedding Video Highlights of Rondy & Elaine

Lots of tears were shed at this wedding. Generous amounts of warm hugs given, kind words exchanged but most importantly of all, love was present. It was the kind of wedding that focuses on a long term event…the marriage, and not just that one day affair, which is the wedding.

A wedding that reminds you love triumphs over everything.

A wedding that reflects a 10 year commitment that will carry on till ‘death do us part’.

And so, that Indon boy met that Malaysian girl and made a commitment to each other in marriage. Read their wonderful story as written by Rondy below.

Fell in love with that good friend who was so beautiful on the inside

Our story was not one of those love at first sight story. I knew Elaine ever since my high school days. We both went to Garden International School; I joined in year 7, and she joined in year 5. However, I only knew of her existence during year 10, when both of us had some unstreamed classes together; they were Economics, Accounting and our Science subjects. That was actually equivalent to about 16 hours of classes each week! As for the rest of the classes that were ranked, Elaine was just too smart for me. She was undisputedly the smartest student in my year. She would be in all the top classes while I would be somewhere in the middle! So during school, my recollection of Elaine was that she was a nerd with specs and braces who liked to study and hated sports (this is so wrong now!) but at the same time, a very nice girl.

It was only until college that I got to know her better. As the norm in college life, you tend to first make friends with the people you knew back in school. We were no different. Together with other guys from GIS, we went out for lunch, played foosball and pool together, studied together and I even carpooled with Elaine on the way back as well.

We then became friends and I started to really like hanging out with Elaine. I found her to be an extremely pleasant and fun girl to be with. I remembered that I used to get ignored because my jokes didn’t make sense, or people just couldn’t understand me (probably due to my Indonesian accent). However I came to notice that Elaine was always there to respond to me! I also found her to have such a tender and kind heart, someone who loved to help friends, random strangers and animals. She used to feed hungry cats and stray dogs, felt pity towards peacocks that had their wings clipped, and homeless men on the street amongst many others. Do you know that up to this day Elaine has never killed a mosquito!? She just shoos them away! Unbelievable!

So then I started to really like hanging out with Elaine – I loved chatting on the phone with her, and was excited every time she came online on MSN messenger and every time I bumped into her at church on Sundays because I got to see her on a weekend. I loved sharing a laugh with her, playing games with her, but most of all, I loved her smile. She became a really good friend. I was attracted to her inner beauty and how her personality matched mine. One day, I found out that a few other college guys were also chasing after Elaine and I felt a tinge of jealousy! I knew that wasn’t normal and this was indeed a special girl to me. Perhaps she could be my dream girl, the one!

Over time, my feelings grew and so I asked Elaine who had become a good friend to be my college prom date. It was then that I asked her out to be my girlfriend for the first time. But, she rejected me. I guess the feeling wasn’t mutual then. That was a very sad and painful memory for me.

Fortunately for us, I decided not to give up and kept a close relationship while keeping my fingers crossed that she would somehow give me a chance. And so, 3 months after Elaine rejected me during the prom, she decided to give our relationship a chance. We moved to the next level and the rest, as they say, is history!

That moment was nearly 10 years ago now. Elaine and I had since gone through so much together. We grew with each other. I can’t even remember clearly my life before her anymore. She had always been a constant in my life for the past 10 years and will be there forevermore.

She was there when someone called me “sir” for the first time.
She was there when I first shaved my non-existent facial hair.
She was there when I went for my first ever interview with Genting Group.
She was there when I was captained by my football team in uni.
She was there when I graduated.
She was there when I was excited to have seen snow for the first time in China.
She was there when I got my first real paycheck, and my promotion.
She was there during a lot of other first time moments in my life.

She was also there when I was diagnosed with high cholestrol at 18 and helped to bring it down.
She was there when I was down cause I didn’t know what the future hold for me.
She was always there when I was sick, bought me hot lemon tea when I had real bad sore throat and was constantly with me in hospital when I dislocated my ankle.
She was there to comfort me when I was feeling angry and sad and disappointed at the world.

Needless to say more, Elaine had always been there through it all.

So, we had grown together, bringing the best out of each other, be it good times or bad times. We had the best times together, and became a better person individually. My mom realized that I became a more gentle and sensitive person because of her, and I believed she became a more relaxed and less kan-cheong person because of me.

10 years ago, I fell in love with a nerdy, skinny, smart, Godly, tender and kind-hearted girl. She was a friend, which became a good friend, and eventually my best friend. My best friend is now my soulmate. My wife. I am married to my childhood sweetheart, my dream girl. She was my first love and my last.

Wedding Video Highlight, G Hotel, Penang: Desmond & Elizabeth

You know the saying, “You mess with the bull, you get the horns!”. That, apparently, is Elizabeth’s life’s mantra. I wouldn’t want to get on her blacklist! But as a lawyer of 11 years, I would definitely want her on my team. Realistic and sometimes cynical, she said she can’t help but sometimes be a smart-ass! Elizabeth was born and raised in Indiana, USA. To give her credit, she has a really soft side to her tough exterior… she is an old-fashioned romantic…an extroverted person who loves to make people feel comfortable and at ease. She loves to travel, eat and is totally into sports… more than most guys!

Which are all of Desmond’s favourite activities! Traveling, eating and sports! (Tennis, specifically!). The only other thing in his list is that he adores shopping, but mostly for other people! He is an introvert with extroverted tendencies (not too sure how that works!), is kind, caring, thoughtful and a romantic at heart. Born and bred in Penang, Malaysia, Desmond moved to California when he was 19 for college and medical school.

It was there in the States that they met one night through a mutual friend. It was trivia night, and he came with some colleagues from the hospital. His first impression was that she was easy going and fun to talk to, though he thought that she was a smarty-pants through out the whole night!

Her favorite memory about that evening was when the question “What does the ‘A’ in DNA stand for?” came up and how all the doctors at the table looked at each other and said “acid?”. It made her concerned that the lawyer knew it was “acid” but the doctors were not so sure! Elizabeth is bad with names, so she had ‘labels’ for everyone to help her remember better – there was a ‘guy leaving early’, ‘guy with no sleeves’, ‘Yoba’, and Desmond was apparently the ‘hottie doctor’.

Despite the smarty-pants label, Elizabeth made an impression on Desmond, and so to enlarge his social circle, he asked for her number before leaving (which made her think that he was trying to pick her up!). But I guess she gave him a chance because they started hanging out more often, and the interest kept on growing…and the rest, is history.
