a Dog Lover's Wedding...
Congratulations to Anne and Edward who got married last Saturday.. and such a lovely and unique wedding it was!
I knew Anne when she came to church as a fresh grad from Australia.. she was always the little baby in our Bible Study group.. and in a way it's quite hard to believe how time flew by and I'm truly happy for her to find her other-half.
As Anne is a dog lover (something we share in common and often talk about), the canine is quite prominantly featured in their wedding decoration and theme. You can see dogs and traces of dogs everywhere - from the wedding invitation to the wedding car to slides presentation and even at the dinner table! There were even dog-bone biscuits to offer the guests!
And we the `cheemui', also came out with dog-themed games for the groom and his `hengdai' when they came to fetch the bride! It was definitely a `cheep sanleong' session that was quite different from others I've participated in! We made the guys presented a MTV with songs that had dogs in it, and made them perform certain tricks and then to eat and drink from a bowl like dogs! It was a good thing that the groom and the guys were very sporting!
As I was busy giving instructions and `training' to the guys, I didn't manage to take photos of the games in progress..
At the church ceremony in the afternoon, Edward surprised his bride by presenting a song to her.. such a thoughtful and sweet gesture. And the two of them just looked so sweet together..
Later, it was good food and good company at their wedding dinner at Saujana. Besides the chocolates, I also took back a special souvenir in the form of a small stuff dog! :)
To the couple now honeymooning in Phuket, here's wishing you both a very happy and blessed marriage life together!
