It was exactly a year ago.....

October 15, 2005 was the day when we got married. Today we are celebrating our first anniversary! People said that first year of marriage is the hardest... it hasn't been easy, but it sure has been the most 'interesting' year that we're been in. Our love for each other has grown deeper everyday and it has been so many heaven's blessings that we received!
We want to thank our dearest family and friends, and everyone who celebrated with us, those who had come from near and far, those who sent their blessings and prayers, and to those who had tremendously helped us in making our day so memorable. It was definitely THE BEST day ever in our life!
Lastly, we want to thank Jen and Stephen who through their artistic approach and huge talents, have given us the best presents of all: captured memories that we cherish every single day.

Re-living the day

Although it has been more that 9 months since the day we got married, we are still giddy and love our day. We can only wish that we can re-live the day again. Would we do it differently if we can ever go back? Absolutely not! Well, maybe.... We would invite more people to join our festivities!
Finally we were able to see our what our wedding day was like. We have been waiting for quite some times to finally get ahold of the wedding video. Everyday I was waiting for the DVDs to arrive in our mailbox!
Tears of joy ran through our cheeks as we watched our day unfolded before our eyes through Krista's lens. It felt that I can hear our guests chat and giggle during the dinner, the clinking of the plates and the cutleries, the music that played in the background, the beautifully smell roses that we have..., I can even feel the light cool breeze that blew through that day that gently caressed our skins, and the wonderful elated feeling of how proud I am to marry the wonderful man that is my husband. It was very vivid, as if it was just yesterday.

281 days

It has been 281 days since we were pronounced as man and wife.
It has been 281 days of wedded bliss, 281 days of giggles and silliness, 281 days of exploration of each other's character, and 281 days of trying to figure out what to have for dinner (or lunch).
People says that things might change after you are married. Well, well, yes indeed they are right! Call me cheesy but, the thing that changes, is our love. We feel that when we look back, the day of the wedding was the day that we love each other less in comparison of what we feel today.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue" are supposed to be an old tradition for the bride that she has to carry/have for her wedding. Each item in this rhyme represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. "Something old" symbolizes continuity with the bride's family and the past. "Something new" means optimism and hope for the bride's new life ahead. "Something borrowed" is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family. Well, in my case:
Something new is definitely my beautiful Kate Spade shoes that my husband bought me:

Something old are my Mom's diamonds (that she's been saving for me to be given at my wedding!) that were custom made by my Aunt into my wedding jewelries: 3 stones diamond pendant, the matching diamond earrings set, and the beautiful diamond bracelet.

It's not so hard to get something blue as blue is my favorite color! Initially I want to have blue shoes, but can't find it anywhere that I love. Then I went a little different, the tulles underneath my dress, but Mom disagreed as it made the dress change color, no, we don't want that.
So, the blue is the little ribbons on the garter:

At first I was hoping that I can wear my Mom-in-law hair jewelry that she wore from her wedding, but unfortunately she can't find it anywhere... Something borrowed is the wedding rings' jewelry box that I borrowed from my good friend Jetty. The wooden box is so beautiful that I fell in love with it the minute I saw it at her wedding.

The Art of Public Speaking

Most of the people dread public speaking. What was it that made people feel that way? Was it the public that you have to face or just the feeling whether you'll say all the right things and the right words. The Art of Public Speaking, at the wedding especially, can be tricky. Lots of horror stories that I have heard (and seen) about these wedding speeches when the deliverer was too caught up in the moment, or just simply wasted due the ridiculous amount of drinks from the bar! Luckily, in our case, nothing embarrassing happened! Assaf, the groom's bestman (and little brother) though he was just plain nervous as he read the many points that he cramped into the McDonald's napkin, he succeeded to tell his dearest brother how he adored him.
As for Frances, my Maid of Honor, she just simply delivered a tear-jerker, very emotional speech. She was successful in making me cry! Well, not just me I guess..., almost all the people at the reception! Excellent job for a first-timer!

...A kiss, and all was said.

How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said...
(Victor Hugo)
