There are many things I might not be able to promise or even provide you at this very moment. But I can promise you this, I will be faithful to grow old with you. In fatness and in wrinkles. In happiness and in sadness. In healthiness and in sickness. And through easiness or even difficulties. You and me, for the past three years have never stopped learning to understand each other, and I have learned a lot from you. Anything about life, progress and purposes. I learned how to laugh, I learned how to live, I learned how to give, I learned how to fight, how to manage, how to lead, I learned how to speak, I learned how to appreciate my life and the blessings that lie ahead. You, always bring the best out of me. And one of the most important lessons I’ve learned from you would be, wisdom. You always taught me that any kind of relationship including family, partnership, friendship and marriage is indeed always about teamwork.
When it comes to arranging a wedding, no matter how long it took or how well-organised your preparation was, NOTHING actually prepares you for the day itself. If I were to describe our wedding in one single description, the right way to describe it is that... it was full of emotions. A 7-year worth of relationship, packed into 2 beautiful Italian summer days, to commemorate a lifetime commitment.
Riesky and I have always known we wanted a small, intimate wedding. We just never knew it would be this small and intimate, 25 people to be exact, and it was nothing if not perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better group of people - family, friends that are pretty much family, vendors that are pretty much friends, everything seems to agree with us on that day. If you ask me if it was difficult to arrange the wedding from overseas, you can ask anyone I know that I'm probably the most stress-free bride. Drama-free? Of course not, it was a wedding - you do expect some dramas and last minute surprises. For us, the drama was not being able to do a civil signing in Venice although we've planned months ahead for it. But I believe that everything happens for a reason. And at the end of the day, we don't even remember that drama because everything else was just beyond our imagination - and most importantly, nothing made us happier than to have the company and full support of those 25 people, even when we ridiculously decided to get married 5000 miles away from home.
