Jenny from Singapore and Juan from US met online through one of the largest dating websites in the US, E-harmony and little did the couple know that their friendship would later blossom into something more. After months of connecting via email, Skype and phone calls, Juan flew to Singapore to meet Jenny for the first time and that’s when the both of them knew that they were meant for each other. The next time the couple met, they were in Langkawi and when Juan got down on one knee at their beach front chalet and delivered a beautiful proposal and a diamond ring to Jenny, Jenny said “yes”. In less than 2 months, Juan moved to Singapore to be with Jenny and the couple finally tied the knot in March 2011 in Penang.
The wedding was held at 32 Mansion inPenang. The couple exchanged vows outdoors at the Babylon Lounge which was followed by a buffet dinner in the dining hall. The venue of 32 Mansion was lovely and romantic as it had a lot of greenery and was by the beach.
Both Juan and Jenny did not have a specific theme for the wedding but they had hoped to create a romantic, easy and elegant ambiance for their guests hence they chose light colours for the night. The decorations were mostly fresh flowers with white and pink heart shaped balloons. Jenny’s 9 elder sisters definitely helped make the wedding special by decorating the registration table and having jelly bean and pistachio buckets for the guests.
The night was also filled with entertainment such as slide shows, piano performances from Jenny’s nephew and nieces and Jenny even sand a song for Juan. There was even a DJ for the after party! Being very sporting, both Jenny and Juan had a very special first dance where they incorporated MC Hammer’s “You can’t touch this” into their dance routine.
For Jenny, one of the most memorable moments was when she walked down the aisle with her mother and all 9 of her sisters. It was a unique experience and a good one for the family as Jenny had lost her beloved father a year ago. Another special moment for Jenny was when Juan began to say his vows. Juan expressed his sincerest feelings and his love for Jenny and as soon as he began to read his vows, he was so overcome with emotions that he began to tear. Not only did Jenny start tearing as well but the guests too teared up over this sweet display of love.Both Juan and Jenny agreed that the whole wedding was magical and the couple was so happy to be surrounded by their close friends and family which was simply perfect.
