Christine and Gene first met in secondary school. Even though they had crushes on each other, nothing serious really happened and they lost touch soon after graduation. Twelve years later, the two met again through Words with Friends, a game they played together as Facebook friends. If not for Gene's vocabulary prowess, Christine would have never begun a conversation in the game. "Why do you always win?" she asked. Since then, they started chatting more often and finally met to catch up as old classmates.
Neither of them had expected that their first meet-up after 12 years would be like a date. They hit it off instantly and there was just too much to catch up on. After four years of dating, Gene finally proposed to his girlfriend. It's amazing how little things like downloading a mobile game or adding each other on Facebook was what made them end up together. Both of them still marvel at the unlikely situation and are very happy that everything came together, however unexpectedly.
The wedding was no less beautiful than their love story. Christine chose a simple gown that perfectly reflected her character while Gene looked handsome in a black wedding suit and navy blue bow tie. The day started with Chinese wedding traditions and ended with a romantic soiree under the night sky decorated with fairy lights. The pair chose a rustic theme where wooden elements were mixed with geometrical shapes in copper to elevate a modern atmosphere. There to capture everything was Bloc Memoire Photography, who did a marvelous job as every photo showed us how the day was spent with so much happiness.
