Eevonn and Eric began their relationship as college sweethearts back in 2006. "It was the typical college love story. We were both 18 years old at the time and hung out with the same group of friends at a café during class breaks. It wasn't love at the first sight, or was it?" reminisced Eevonn.
Two years after their relationship started, they had to be separated when Eevonn went on to work as a flight attendant. "In 2008, we started a long-distance relationship because I chose to clip on my wings, pack my bags, and explore the world," she said. Things didn't always go smoothly back then, as the couple faced communication breakdowns due to different time zones. "Over time, our communication got easier through online messengers and video calls. There's a saying, 'Distance makes the heart grows fonder', maybe it's true?" said the lovely bride.
Eventually, all their hard work and sacrifice paid off. Eric got a job in Singapore, where Eevonn was based, and prepared to enter a new chapter in life together. "We both come from two big families, and it wasn't easy to find a suitable venue that could accommodate up to 500 guests. In the end, we decided to have an intimate ceremony witnessed by our closest friends and family with a theme that we both love," said Eevonn.
"We both love earthy, rustic bohemian wedding themes, so we decided to add more greenery instead of flowers," the bride explained. Through every frame captured by Arture Photography, we can see an array of green leaves adorning every element, from the backdrop to the wedding sign. "Our green-and-white color palette and the wooden furniture made a good match!" Eevonn added.
Looking at their remarkable wedding decorations, who would've thought that everything was made by the couple along with their dearest family, bridesmaids, and groomsmen? Recalled Eevonn, "The whole thing was pretty much DIY. Aside from helping us out on the décor, my bridesmaids even handled the event coordination and became my MC! Eric and I wouldn't have achieved all of this without them."
