Ariel’s Thoughts: I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons)

I loved this wedding gig for many reasons! First, Khalid and Yanti kicked off the wedding reception with an open declaration of love and admiration for each other, which totally set the right tone and mood for their wedding reception. Second, the guests could mingle freely with the lovely couple and publicly dedicate their blessings to the couple. Third, we helped ourselves to a sumptuous buffet of Malay cuisine and spread of desserts. Finally, all the guests (including me) made off with the ultimate door gift – oreo cookies!

There was a prize for everybody – the emcee cruised around the ballroom, quizzing the guests with riddles

Ian, ever the talented pianist, decided that he liked the concept of Khalid and Yanti’s wedding, especially the fact that the couple would take their seat on the stage and invited the guests to take photos of/with them. We agreed that Ian’s wedding will be a costume party – people will come dressed up as animated characters (i.e. X-Men, Shrek etc… u name it!). I better start hunting for a suitable costume…

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank Khalid and Yanti for engaging ALD and we wish them everlasting marital bliss! And special thanks to Amelia for facilitating our preparations at ACM!
