Serene’s thoughts: Lucky

Patrick and Hera’s wedding was held at the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel.

This unique venue definitely set me, and I am sure their guests in the right mood to attend a wedding with it’s stylish architecture, vast spaces, modern decor, and glimpses of natural light peeking into the hotel’s interior. As the evening went on, I soon pieced together how this venue must hold a special place in Patrick and Heras’ hearts. The first clue was when I learnt that Hera is a “Singapore Girl” from watching the video montage.


Patrick was a natural charmer when it came to delivering the couple’s speech. Firstly and unconventionally, he took the stage alone joking that his bride happily entrusted him with the job, causing laughter to breakout around the room while Hera watched him lovingly from the VIP table. Hera looked beautiful in a red evening gown with crystal details.

Take a look at more stunning photographs from Yu Hsin!

The groom then went on to thank a group of friends who rushed to attend their wedding shortly after touching down from an international flight, as well as other colleagues (who initially did not manage to change their flight schedules) for using “creative” means just to attend their wedding, to which the many “knowing” parties burst out laughing.

He ended his speech with a very touching moment. The one sentence that touched my heart and I am sure many. I manage to catch the priceless moment Hera teared when Patrick ended his speech saying “To Hera, my best friend, thank you for marrying me.”

I then realized the significance of the song “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat that they have chosen for their 2nd March In. It left a smile on my face.

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend,
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love every way, Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

It now all made sense. Patrick and Hera, thank you for having A Little Dream on your special day. Thank you for inspiring us with you beautiful love story.

Our congratulations to you both and may your lives be filled with bliss, happiness and eternal love.
