The ceremony took place in a Buddhist temple; it was an intimate event with close family and friends present. Vows were read, rings were exchanged, signatures were penned, and many many pictures were taken.
I teared when the groom (also a long time friend) gave a mini speech proclaiming his love for her. It was short and sweet but very touching mainly because I was there watching their relationship grow. From US to Melbourne back to KL, it feels like just yesterday we were partying it up in Melbourne!
The celebrations continued with lunch at Shangri-La, where the hotel set us up in a private area facing the gardens.
She is the first in the group to tie the knot, and I am so happy for her to find someone who will love her unconditionally. I know married women are usually not asked to be bridesmaids but I will most definitely have her as one of mine (when I do get married) because she is someone I hold very dear. We have known each other for almost 15 years now; and whoever said "Time flies when you are having fun" wasn't kidding.
I am so grateful and blessed to have someone like her in my life.
Congratulations to two dear friends!
