our wedding: the morning

weehee!! we just received our pictures from joan. wow! they were all we wanted and MORE!!! we are so thankful,[info]valska. we are so so so so happy! it was a very fierce race to our laptops turns out trying to load pictures on both computers simultaneously is TOO taxing for our lousy cambodian bandwidth. duh. WHO KNEW! so it left two very frustrated individuals yelling "c'mon now!" "you must be freakin' kidding me!" at our completely clueless screens.

seriously though, i speak as wedding planner and bride, you must let professionals do their work. we had a million other digital shots from our friends (and some from dearly beloved who clung on to his camera for dear life... *tsk*) but you really need another pair of eyes there to catch the moments! till today, we regret not getting someone to cover our lunch and dinner.

but we'll get there!!


our wedding boo-boo :: our JP got daniel's name wrong. i have to confess it was kinda my bad though... i made daniel drill him on the right pronunciation of his last name (its allen-der not a-LEN-der) turns out, better to get last name wrong than to be married to the wrong allender. 

oh well... c'est la vie.


on a bright and cheery morning in our garden


mocha stole the limelight with his polka dotted bowtie. he did NOT pee on our backdrop, did NOT tear down any pomander or chase after any bird. 

who knew he was capable of such good behavior? good job, buddy.

stealing glances..


our daddies bore witness at our solemnization


i love this picture of daniel. on the other hand, i do not dig my own candid shots. i frequently smile so widely i look like i could eat a baby or look like the NDP commanding officer yelling at his troop of men. i guess the latter happens occasionally too.. note to self, work on grace.


my baby brothers who surprised me with a song! super super cute.. :)


  shan picked up the guitar and sounded like an angel

more wedding details to come!
