Michelle and Andrew were first introduced by their tattoo artist and after dating for a while, they decided to get married. "We were in the car when he asked if I wanted to marry him. It was a very casual proposal," said Michelle. As you would expect, the wedding planning was as laid-back as this couple's personality. "We had a rough idea of what we liked, so we just briefly explained it to our vendors and let them do their magic," Michelle explained.
Luckily, Michelle had often worked with various wedding vendors through her artisan cake business, Femy's Cake. "Most of the vendors I picked are my friends and the people I've worked with before. We entrusted everything to them, and I just knew that the results would be satisfying," said Michelle. "Both of our families are also easy-going, and we were all pretty surprised to see how amazing the wedding turned out," she continued.
The couple held their wedding ceremony over the green grass of Pakuwon Golf Course in Surabaya. Wooden arches, green vines, and yellow flowers complemented the natural setting beautifully. Michelle looked ravishing in a lace gown by designer Yefta Gunawan, which has an interesting story behind it. "I wanted a simple dress with a unique feature to keep it sassy. So, I showed Yefta my favorite dress by Krikor Jabotian, a simple gown with a huge bow," Michelle said. During the last fitting, Yefta decided to change the lace so Michelle didn't get to see her wedding dress until the big day. "I loved the cape for the morning event, which was something that I didn't expect," she said.
The dress wasn't the only beautiful thing about the reception, as the decoration was also exceptional. Clusters of yellow flowers and calla lily filled the whole area, and the wedding gate with inverted calla lilies was particularly unforgettable, don't you think?
