We're sure you still remember the glamorous ballroom wedding in Jakarta that Helen and Alvet shared last month. Who knew, such a dazzling celebration started out with such a simple yet memorable wedding proposal. "I was having dinner with my best friend—which I later found out was set up by Alvet. Suddenly, he showed up bringing note cards just like my favorite Keira Knightley scene from the movie, Love Actually," shared Helen.
Soon after that unforgettable night, the pair started planning their nuptials. Helen and Alvet chose to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city for their pre-wedding photo shoot. "We fell in love with Belitung Island as soon as we saw a photo of its beautiful kaolin lake," said Helen. Little did she know, accessing the lake was not easy. "We had to walk downhill through a hard pebbled road. It was quite an experience for me and I kept on nagging the whole time!" she reminisced. Looking at their photographs above, we can say that all the hard work paid off well.
"We didn't want to have a dramatic photo shoot with big, princess-like gowns," Helen explained. Instead, the couple preferred a classic engagement album that would still be cherished in the next 10 years. "Choosing Carol Kuntjoro from Pyara as our photographer was one of the best decisions I made," she continued. In every frame, the combination of the picturesque blue kaolin lake and natural lighting resulted in a string of photos that are like no other. Helen and Alvet themselves beamed with love and laughter, somehow managing to match the beauty of their surroundings.
