"Timothy and I first met during a spontaneous dinner with some mutual friends. We felt an instant connection once we realized that we both had pet rabbits," said Florence, today's lovely bride. After dating for a while, Timothy secretly planned a surprise proposal for her. "He prepared a private room filled with flowers, then presented a handwritten journal that contained memories of our relationship," reminisced Florence. "Then, he knelt on one knee and asked me to marry him before giving me a ring," she continued.
Although the couple had around 11 months to prepare their wedding, things did not go too smoothly at first. "Apparently, our wedding date was really popular, so a lot of vendors were already booked," said Florence. Luckily, she and Timothy managed to secure several top-notch vendors that would eventually bring their vision to life.
"I have a lot of favorite vendors, starting from Veronica Halim who created my invitations. She is a truly incredible artist, very talented with excellent taste," gushed Florence. She also enlisted Tea Rose Wedding Designer to transform Rumah Luwih, a colonial-style resort with intricate Chinese and Balinese details, into the wedding venue of her dreams. "I discreetly added some rabbit-themed ornaments as an homage to my pet rabbit that brought my husband and I together in the first place," she said. Meanwhile, Paris-based makeup artist Harold James, designer Yefta Gunawan, and accessories designer Rinaldy A. Yunardi made sure that Florence looked her most beautiful self. Finally, the dreamy photos by Axioo and Le Secret d'Audrey thoroughly captured all the exquisite moments of the wedding.
Even though the wedding went by so quickly, Florence felt that it was a magical day indeed. "We were so happy that my friends and family from afar managed to turn up and give us their blessings," she said. Florence also learned so many things throughout the whole wedding planning process. "As a bride, we sometimes want every single detail to be perfect and immaculate," she said, "but don't put too much effort in achieving this, because in the end, what matters the most is your life after the wedding day."
