Serene’s Thoughts: 家后 (Queen of the House)
The wedding of Joen and Tung Tai was held at the Sentosa Resort and Spa.
Surrounded by greens and breathtaking night views of the sea, I always found weddings held at this venue particularly romantic and refreshing. With Weibin (伟彬) as emcee, we were off to a fantastic start for the evening. The beautiful and eloquent host warmed the guests up before the couple’s first march-in and set everyone in the mood for a night of joy, fun and great beginnings.
Thanks, KC of Greymatter Photography, for sending us your lovely work. Much appreciated
Joen and Tung Tai looked stunning as they entered the ballroom to the first march-in song of “Tonight I Celebrate My Love”. Joen looked like a life size doll with her petite frame and adorable eyes, and Tung Tai, quietly charming.
The evening’s highlight was the special item planned by Joen for her husband. With Jixiang accompanying her on guitars, she surprised her groom by singing the song “家后“. Besides its immensely moving melody and lyrics, that which touched everyone’s hearts was the emotions delivered by Joen during the song as she sang, trying to hold back her tears. I was moved to tears, and I am sure many amongst the guests did as well. Tung Tai was moved beyond words as he walked onto the stage and held her tightly as she finished the song.
It was also very lovely to watch the couple’s video and photo montage that traced how they met, across two countries, fell in love, right up to the proposal and their wedding photographs shot overseas.
There was another little “surprise” setup for the groom. Tasked by a relative, Weibin shared with the guests how a relative has specially brought a concoction from “France” for the groom and he had to drink it up. There it was, a green concoction in a wine glass and it turned out to be a blend of vegetables. Apparently Tung Tai hardly enjoys eating vegetables since a young age and so, mischievously, this relative requested for him to do something special and eat some greens!
It was a great night, lots of laughter, lots of love, lots of great memories.
Thank you Joen and Tung Tai for engaging A Little Dream on your special day. We would also like to thank the guests for their wonderful support.
Finally, best wishes to you both, and thank you for the lovely memories.
