"There are so many differences between us," said Olvita while opening up on her love journey with Pandhit. Maybe that one simple sentence is the most perfect way to represent their relationship. Initially, Olvita thought a relationship goal happens when two people share many similarities in their characters and love each other harmoniously. Over time, she realized that her partner's personality was so different compared to hers. "We have almost no mutual hobbies, food tastes, and even our mindset is completely the opposite! Then, it crossed my mind whether we could live together one day even though we have nothing but differences," she continued.
Long story short, during the first vacation together with Pandhit's parents, she got proposed in the Netherlands, precisely in her lover's favorite city, The Hague, just two days before they had to return to the hometown. In the city, Olvita said yes to Pandhit's proposal even there was no ring or any other preparation before. For this couple, they clearly understand how taking their relationship to the next level wasn't an easy decision.
Finally, within six months, Olvita and Pandhit agreed to prepare a traditional wedding as the couple's family was originated from Solo. Some processions were held for four days in a row. The wedding reception was also decorated in shades of blue, just like the Surakarta Kasunanan Palace. In addition to the blue hues that dominated the venue, the couple also took inspiration from European architecture, namely art deco. During that festivity, Olvita also decided to wear a dark blue kebaya in velvet material whose length didn't exceed the knee. Looking so compatible side by side, the groom featured beskap pangeranan in similar material.
"It's not easy to go through a relationship with a lot of differences, but it made us realize that differences aren't something to be avoided. On the other hand, differences have taught us to accept, complete, understand more about each other, and learn to love what you didn't love before," Olvita concluded.
