Talitha and Adit bonded over music. They've worked in the same office for quite a long time but were never aware of each other's presence, until music brought them together. "When I first saw Talitha in the office, I thought that she was such a shy and quiet girl. Her head was always staring down, so it was hard to see her face," recalled Adit. One day, he went to a concert with a few of his friends from work, and one of his friends told him that Talitha had great taste in music.
Out of curiosity, Adit browsed Talitha through Instagram and slid into her DM. They ended up having endless conversations with each other and was in a relationship two weeks after finally getting to know each other. The two were always honest about wanting to have a serious relationship since the beginning, so talks of marriage have always been circulating in their minds. "Around 9 months after we got together, we decided to get married in 2019," said Talitha.
Talitha had always been a fan of brown-toned dried flowers, so she made it a priority to have dried flowers as a huge part of the wedding decoration. She then aligned the rest of her wedding mood board in accordance with the flowers. The overall decorations are of nude and white hues, as well as beige and broken white. This color palette not only matches well with the dried flowers but also with the wooden interior of the Plataran Dharmawangsa.
"At first, we didn't want to have a wedding ceremony, just a wedding certificate because we didn't want to deal with a hassle. But my parents wanted a ceremony, so I agreed on it, but I still wanted it to be as simple and intimate as possible," explained Talitha. In total, the couple had 200 guests invited to the ceremony. Talitha felt that it was best to have her wedding in a semi-outdoor area instead of a ballroom so that the setting was more intimate. They wanted an outdoor space for guests to mingle, as well as indoors to provide shade from the sun. Plataran Dharmawangsa became the perfect spot since it has been a long-time favorite for Talitha and her parents.
The vendors who stood out the most for Talitha was her wedding attire designer, SukkhaCitta, and Distillery who created the invitations. Talitha adored SukkhaCitta's fabrics and wedding dress designs. Aside from the fact that it is ethically sustainable, it also fits well to her intimate and straightforward wedding theme. She looked divine in her modern hijab styled wedding dress, using a white lace over the nude-beige fabric. "Speaking of sustainability, our invitation is made of recycled materials called misu paper. Distillery really went above and beyond in designing our invitations, they took every suggestion and made it perfect," exclaimed Talitha.
