Jo’s thoughts: Sweet Pea
Kialing and Weilian decided to have a less conventional wedding – instead of the more standard hotel event, they began the rest of their wedded life literally in bloom — at the lush and summery Orchidville, with a restaurant complete with towering trees and a riot of blossoms surrounding the dinner tables.
Of course, the lush landscape was merely the stage for our stars of the night. There’s a Chinese idiom 郎才女貌, literally talented man, beautiful woman, to describe a fine couple.
This was certainly the case with Kialing looking very very delicate and fresh in her lovely gowns, like a flower herself, and a Weilian, with his disarming smile, belting out a special song dedicated to her while accompanied by his friend on his guitar. Even though Kialing did tell him ‘very cheesy leh’, we thought it was moving! Other highlights of the night included a gameshow style interview of the duo, complete with kiss-challenge.
In the midst of all this, Iwee and myself were having a good time performing a completely unordinary repertoire of lovely songs (take a look at the song list below!).
And obviously the bride and groom had a good handle on their guests, because the songs were met with applause and even cheers, so the band got to take part in the warm fuzzy feelings floating around Orchidville on the night!
Thank you so much Kialing and Weilian for having us. May the rest of your wedded lives be as beautiful as the night which began it!
