It has been said over the time that love transcends all barriers; and for Melissa and Rizky, their love transcends culture. Because both of them are deeply rooted in their cultural heritage, they celebrated their wedding with the mixture between two cultures: Sundanese and Melayu. They started the wedding ceremony with the sacred Sundanese Siraman to cleanse the bride; and then followed by Melayu tepung tawar ceremony to wish the couple away from any harm. The combination between two cultures in one wedding captured our hearts for the fact that those differences could actually be embraced; and as what you will witness with Rizky and Melissa's Wedding, that embraced differences are actually making this wedding beautiful.
This is what the photographer has to say about the wedding:
We have never seen a sweeter couple than Melissa & Rizky. We love how they respect each other with grace as we believe that is the best gift we can give to our partner & just let them be all they can be. These two seem to have the purest loving heart and our favorite thing about them is how they express it. It's easy to understand each & every emotion that they are feeling through their face. We also love how excited these two get when they see each other.
This ceremony will go down in our wedding log history as one of the loveliest ceremonies that we've ever captured. It started with akad nikah with sundanese traditional culture ceremonial. Melissa was calmly elegant & looked really excited on her big day. We loved that she accessorized her bridal look with siger.
As Rizky's mother came from Medan, they brought a touch of Melayu Deli culture into their wedding reception and we just really loveeee its traditional attire, which was designed by one of the most talented young designer from Indonesia, Didiet Maulana.
As a photographer, if you could create your dream wedding couple, then for sure it would be Melissa & Rizky's. They were one of the easiest couples to work with from the beginning until the very end. They danced and sang the night away and they made sure that all their guests feel the fun atmosphere. This was such an exciting day to do a photo shoot and we were so thankful that we are able to be a part of the celebration. Congrats again, Melissa & Rizky!
