|Wedding of Yasminne + Alvin, day 1
Date: 3rd Jan 2009
Venue: Amara sanctuary (Sentosa)
The Wedding Entourage
I was looking forward to covering Yas and Alvin's big day, I remember the both of them coming by the office and Yas was complaining about traffic and being so expressive about it. At that point, my perspective of the lady with the deep soothing voice you hear on the radio changed....alot! *hurhur. Alvin was quiet most of the time but yet, made me feel he had a calm and confident personality.
The morning started with a few "first time" situations for me. The first time I encountered a blackout during the bride's morning preparation and yet Yas was still so calm and collected about it. It did take awhile before the lights came back on.
Arrival of the groom
First time I got to sit in a stretched limo =)
Some last minute instructions before facing whats ahead of them
The bridesmaids had the 'showgirls" theme going on.
Unfortunately, "weaponry" the guys brought along got confiscated. The men still put on a good "fight" before they were allowed into the house.
The groom always gets his bride.
Being in a limo for the first time was a cool experience.
I'm a sucker for cute dogs
At the Amara Sanctuary
It was a short and sweet ceremony with family and close friend, the way a wedding should be. The couple got to hang out with them over brunch and the overall mood was very relaxed. They held their wedding banquet 2 weeks after. *more on that in another blogpost =)*
