A heavenly silver themed event

After almost 15 years of being an item, 3 years since the first proposal in Maldives, 2 weeks of preparation, probably 6 hours of shopping for the right dress(es), 1 ROM and 1 glittery cocktail reception, it finally dawned on us that the long-awaited union of my big sister Vivienne and Danny is for real. Like for real.

I'm not one for toasts and super affectionate speeches during major events (I'm usually the one giggling inappropriately in the background) but it's important this time because it's the first in our family of 4 (giggly) sisters.

So here's a big congratulations to my dear sis and Danny: I wish you both a happy new beginning full of love and excitement, of joy and understanding, and of much togetherness forever after. Love you both!

The beautiful couple at the ROM

Rings, bouquet and pens in hand

Both dads as witnesses

All signed and good, and MARRIED!

I love this photo. My dad was beaming all day long, it was contagious

Family shot. Though because the bf took this one, he wasn't it it :( We'll have to wait for the photos from Viv's friend Kid @his Studio

The Hilton Catering crew and wedding planner Lan doing their thing

A garbage bin full of roses is like art to me :)

There were creamy white roses, hydrangeas, cala lilies and more white flowers that bloom in the night

Mom, sis and me

It rained when we arrived at the reception...

We helped set up the favors

The Addam's Family (??!)

The party. Can you spot the bride and groom?

Isn't the resemblance uncanny? She even sounds like the cartoon
