{Singapore - Chinese Wedding} Mervin & Jiali

It was October of last year when Jiali surprisingly sent me a really delightful email, so delightful enough you can already tell she was wearing that big happy grin while writing to me. It turned out she knew about me thru Charisse and Randolf when they attended their Catholic Engagement Encounter. I feel so lucky for having happy couples spread the love for me! *winks to Charrise and Randolf* . Then it became a more exciting news when Jiali told me there were only 3 months left before the BIG day so luckily,too it was timely enough that I had a slot for their wedding just last January. If there was enough time, she would have wanted another engagement portraits,too. =)

Jiali met Mervin in 2006 during their graduate/masteral studies in IT here in Singapore. Although years sometimes don't matter but in that length of time being together, one can tell how love will always endure despite any hurdles along the way. And I'm pretty sure Mervin and Jiali has proven that to themselves together. =)

Fast forward to the blissful day, I feel grateful for having captured another beautiful couple's love story. It's priceless enough to witness their happy beaming faces and with everyone who came to celebrate their happiest day!

One of Jiali's pretty pair of shoe....I said 'one of' because she had at least 3 or 4 pairs worn during the wedding day! She's that fab you know! =)

Ruby shoe love...

Meet Mervin. He is actually a Filipino-Chinese descent and even if I've only met him on the day of their wedding, I can already feel how down-to-earth and blithesome he was. It became more evident when I met his family who flew in from Manila and some relatives from the United States. It didn't take any awkwardness at all to exchange that familiar smile and laughter together all throughout the wedding day.

Before Jiali wore her wedding dress, there was the tea ceremony celebrated at their home.
The elegance Jiali brings out for this dress is really admirable. :)

Jiali's mom must have been really happy and proud to see how beautifully she brought up her daughter.

...and Jiali's father is a very respectful man. Although he didn't speak English much, he was really kind.


I also met Jiali's sister who was very cheerful and creative.
She handcrafted this two fabric dolls for Mervin & Jiali --- aren't they the cutest? :)

Lovely bridesmaids =)
Would you guess they are siblings? Hehe
It was fun meeting Mitz , Mervin's sister. Later did I know she writes an inspiring blog,too. =)

The ceremony took place at the beautiful Church of St. Teresa.


Jiali preferred walking down the aisle with her Dad. It was the sweetest scene.

Mervin's Dad and Mom couldn't be more excited too for their son.

It then rained blessings for the couple just right after the ceremony was finished. =)

Off we went straight to the luxurious Raffles Hotel for their wedding dinner party. I love to go back and shoot another wedding here any day. :)

  Jiali gave her most heartfelt speech. It was so sweet.

This band of three played the wonderful jazzy mood music during dinner time.

And the cheering just never ends. =)

I end this post with the now happily married couple.
May you share more cheerful days ahead of you and more blessings to surround you along the way. 
Congratulations again, Mervin and Jiali! ♥♥♥
