Jayden & Jennifer
ProposalWe used to be classmates in secondary school. During our fourth year, we became close friends and would frequent Bras Basah Complex for art materials. During National Day the following year, we went to see the fireworks together and I held her hand. That is when our romance started.
We specifically wanted a gown that was simple, comfortable and pretty, all at the same time. Thus, we browsed through the collections by Bliss Bridal to find the perfect piece. Jennifer tried on so many gowns that we lost count of them, but our perseverance paid off and she finally found a beautiful dress that fit her flawlessly.
ReceptionOur criteria for the reception venue was that it would be able to hold at least 50 banquet tables and have no pillar blockage. A few hotels were able to fulfill these conditions but we were won over by Marina Mandarin because of the great service. The event manager, Fiona Lee, was very accommodating to our needs and requests. We were well taken care of on the wedding day and truly felt like royalty.
We settled for a ‘sweet blossoms’ theme and used red and pink roses. The crimson coloured blooms symbolised love, courage and passion and created a romantic ambience.
As for food, we had an 8-course dinner that was only slightly altered from the original menu. We loved the mango sago with ice cream; it was certainly a refreshing alternative to the usual yam dessert.We received great feedback from our guests, especially in regards to our photographer, whose fun and cheerful personality made photo-taking a breeze. The food and service was just splendid and made our wedding a day to remember.
Memorable MomentsAn entertaining morning gate crash video that featured the famous ‘Gangnam Style’ dance choreography, was played during dinner. It turned out to be a huge hit with our guests. It was so much fun to watch, and seeing our loved ones smiling and laughing away made the day so worthwhile. Also, the fact that all our friends and family attended our wedding dinner on a Monday evening made us feel extraordinarily blessed.
