We had our own version of the "Crazy Rich Asian" adventure with Tong and Sharon not because of over-the-top decorations or hefty budgets but because many of their friends and family were somehow part of the popular franchise. Everyone on the "set" are outrageously talented - from an entertaining emcee cousin, to a performance of a self-composed song by the groom's brother to a hip-hop dance display by the bride's sister, nothing could stop the home team from showing their love to the couple.
Tong and Sharon reciprocated all that with many gifts from their hearts. Guests left with a set of gifts wrapped in a Tiger & Hare Furoshiki wrap specially put together and uniquely designed by the couple. The Tiger & Hare represented Tong and Sharon themselves and were the elements that took us through the couple's adventure from the very beginning. All these became the design elements of the wedding and boy, has it been an adventure for us as well!
We like to think Carlos and Miwako's wedding is one that made us feel extremely blessed. First, we're fortunate to have crossed paths with such a lovely pair who came from opposite sides of the globe. They bring with them their unique blend of culture and history that became the source of inspiration for the wedding concept. Miwako's sense of style, Carlos' sense of humour, and most of all their unwavering trust fueled us abundantly throughout the planning.
With the wedding taking place at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are lucky to have pulled through it despite a guest list that was made up of mainly overseas guests. It was extremely unnerving but with a little luck (and optimism) we made of it a remarkably unforgettable celebration that was fun, heartwarming, and beautiful for all!

We first met Leei Hong at their cozy little home where she filled us in on the type of wedding they are looking at. We ended the session having decided that her very own balcony will be where Michael and herself will be exchanging their vows! Leei Hong loves herself a bright, cheery and simple ceremony which explains the vibrant set of flowers used for the balcony. The same set of flowers was later brought down to the dining table where they served as table decor as the family enjoyed a four-course meal specially prepared for them by a private chef we engaged. It was such a heartwarming night and is definitely a celebration that is not easy to forget.

Where would a wedding planner choose to have her own wedding? Weiwei, founder of Chère, together with her fiance (now husband!) chose to say "yes" at their newly renovated home! We had an intimate (and very much emotional) celebration as we witness the couple exchange their vows after 10 years of courtship. Keeping to a simple setup, the ceremony was a comfortable and pleasant affair for us and the families. The ceremony was followed by the wedding banquet six month later, where the couple went for a more lively and vibrant colour palette but still keeping to the same style of arrangement that was seen during their ceremony.

We're always bummed we can't fully take you through an entire wedding day because nothing beats being there physically to experience it. Mong and Rachel have made us feel like we're at their wedding not just as their planners but also their friends. Throughout the planning, we have built a kind of camaraderie that eventually saw us witnessing some of the rawest moments of their relationship. The unaltered emotions that came flowing out merely from the act of reading a letter to the other was one we've never witnessed before. We were once again reminded and humbled by the many forms Love could take but that it always is rooted in sincerity and a constant choosing of the same person.
We also have to mention that the never-seen-before design elements presented throughout the wedding came about because we were able to tap on the couple's inner "Avant Garde-ness" to bring the ideas to life. We love to be able to plan the wedding not just for you, but with you.

"Adventurous" is how we'd describe YJ and Simin. Simin said "Yes!" when YJ got down on one knee near the giraffes and lions in South Africa. Not long after the couple went on an icy cold pre-wedding trip to Iceland where they brought back not just beautiful photos but also plenty of inspiration for all of us to build the wedding concept.
Simin got way more adventurous after that and found herself designing all the wedding stationery from the wedding invite, envelope and wax seal to the table number cards and menu that served as place mats. Then we too, got adventurous and decided to propose using moss as the main piece for the table decoration. This time around, much to our delight, YJ also said "Yes!"
The wedding celebration of Vicknesh and Silvia was an exceptionally vibrant one. This cross-cultural marriage between an Indian and Italian saw the festivity bursting with lots of colours, laughter and entertainment. The wedding was put together from zero because the venue space was a bare ground except for a small cafe that stood by the side. Everything from the tentage, generator, decoration, air coolers, tables, chairs, flooring and carpeting, utensils, glasses, kitchen equipment and tools were all brought in separately. The wedding was held outdoors but under a tentage that was decorated with twinkling lights, soft drapery and peeks into the night sky beyond. It was magical!

If the photos aren't already telling it, the bridal party made up a huge part of why this wedding was so dear to us. Coming from the same school and CCA, Kristian and Claire's friends and siblings literally grew up together. While they gathered to celebrate the couple's love, we think the friendship and cameradie they've built deserve a celebration too! The fact that Claire was picked up from her family home (a shophouse along Joo Chiat still left very much in its original state since her great-great grandparents lived there) added more charm to this already beautiful and happy day. Laughters were plenty and we were all left with memories that serve as good stories to tell.

The cherry blossom arrangements along the aisle on the tables, created by Fiore Dorato, were inspired by the couple's first trip to Tokyo together. A few highlights from their wedding included an 8-piece orchestra for background music, custom mapping on a 1.8m x 1.8m giant wedding cake and Laduree macarons as wedding favours for all their guests.
