Our baby Karena is now legally married!!!!!
👰 💐 💍 🎊 🤵
YAY!! The clique's favourite and best looking couple ♥♥♥
My heart feels so full right now, I cannot! ♥
To be completely frank, while I am overjoyed for Karena, it does feel a little weird that someone you've known for so so long is getting married. Feels so surreal... Like life is telling you we've really become adults. Life is really happening; shit is getting real. Lol. But oh wells, here I am still green as ever. Tsk.
Back to the solemnisation~
I had the great honor to be with Karena from the very beginning of this day! Watched her get her makeup and hair done, and helped with her dress!
Here's her at the wedding boutique~
So they say our smile is the best makeup we can wear, and indeed it is! Also, feeling happy from the inside.
No need heavy makeup to look beautiful.. 😍
&then we were off to the solemnisation venue!
John looking super serious trying to fix the background for the photo booth!
You can also see a little of Weishan at the back too, but no idea what she's hiding there for. 😜
The reception table with really cute cards for guests to write their well wishes for the couple..
Looks a lot nicer when the lights are dim and the table lights up!
Photo booth: Check!
Reception table: Check!
&It was time for the bride-to-be (&groom) to get dressed! No pictures from that because we were too busy trying not to mess up her dress. THERE WAS SO MANY CRISS CROSS TO DO AT THE BACKK!!
Blisshouse is so beautifully decorated!! Just stepping out of the dressing corner is a nice area to camwhore!
(Fast forward 2018 and it's unfortunate that they are permanently closed already!)
Karena posing on a fancy looking piano while her cousin and Weishan shifts her dress to make it nicely flow down the seat.
Great effort required for a nice picture to be taken! But I don't have the shot because there was a professional. Lol.
♥ The real groom looking happy
&The fake one
(LOOK AT THE PEEPING JOHN BEHIND HAHAHAHA)
WHAT ARE THE ODDS THAT LANCE WOULD WEAR SOMETHING SO SIMILAR TO THE GROOM!!! Super scene-stealer this boy. hahahahahah. It was later agreed that they better coordinate their colors and not clash again on their wedding banquet.
Who's the right groom?
Karena had really on point photo props too!!
Short interview while waiting for more guests to arrive!
Us and some of her other friends + batch mates. :)
&The other girls finally arrived!
I definitely did not get the memo to wear white or be in light color.
So exclusive these 4. Pfft.
But my angels in white~ 😇
&The dukes of the clique.
Gracefully making their entrance while John sings "Beautiful in White" - should have changed the lyrics to "Beautiful in Blue" HEH.
I actually felt quite emotional when they exchanged their vows; to the extent of wanting to tear... Is it silly? Hahaha. I don't know... I think it's really touching, heartwarming and just... magical(?) to witness such a good friend tie the knot with the love of her life. Or maybe I'm just emotional and getting my heartstrings pulled because I'm getting older. LOL.
It's Karena's birthday today; and her cousins prepared her a gorgeous cake as a surprise!
So sweet of them AND THE CAKE WAS GREAT!!! From Antoinette (X).
Got so tired meh this guy! Hahaha.
After the wedding, we headed down to Hooters for round 2!
Chilled and talked about what's ahead for us all.
Life. I'm happy to have them in mine.
Give us a baby Karena / baby John soon!!
