Trisna & Wulang’s Blogger’s Wedding

July 28, 2011

THE ROMANCE~

We started talking in Blog Catalogue discussion group 4 years ago.He recognize me as a white lil’ hamster blogger, because i use a cutey little hamster as my picture profile while i knew him as a silly man wears blangkon who keep on changing his blog theme every week.

Aside of he keep doing that until now; changing his blog theme, after having conversation for months we finally meet and have been together ever since.

The love we have just continue to grow and it is beautiful. Although a year later, we found some of our old pictures where we hang out with our friends and turns out we’ve already known each otherΒ  years ago, way before we meet as a blogger.

As the days spent as two birds falling in love like silly teens, both of us realized. Perhaps we were meant to be together. We had filling up our hearts with hope and lifting our souls together since the day we become a couple.

THE MARRIAGE PROPOSAL~

Wulang found the last piece of puzzle when he proposed to me nearly 00:00 am. It was almost to January 1st 2010.

He asked me secretly when both of us were standing on his house balcony while waiting for the firework to start. And right after saying “Yes” to him, hundred fireworks ignited by the local kids around his house to celebrate New Year of 2011.

It was very fascinating and amazing and it was my best New Year’s eve i’ve ever had. It’s just like whole world also celebrating our night blissfulness.

July 17th 2010 - Engagement Party

We were engaged formally 7 months after he proposed. Both families finally meet and they had been getting really well.

Once we set the date, we pretty much had an ideal time frame in mind, we wanted at least 12 months to save and organize our dream wedding, which is held in July 17th 2011.

We decided on a traditional themed of our before fathers originally came from; Java island. Although, we could choose Sundanese or Makassar ceremonies too. But, because both of us like black color and we couldn’t have a Gothic wedding considering both of our parents are a little bit conventional type of parents. We decided to choose a Javanese Jogjakarta wedding traditions because of their glamorous black and gold theme.

THE PLANNING~

I was so lucky to have so much help from my Mum and my older Sister as they did a lot of running around and organizing while i were unable to. But me and Wulang did finding vendors for the wedding, starting from taste test of the reception food to watching the wedding singer performance in someone else’s wedding.

While everybody is busy with planning my wedding day, we had fun with our pre-wedd photo shoot. It was taken in my hometown and the concept is casual, hang out style with little bit culinary quest.

''Wow we're finally here..."

"There's no turning back..."

"We're going to spend our life together, forever..."

"Let's fill our days with laughter"

"I'm going to cook you dinner after work every day..."

"We are two sneaky lil hamster..."

We had decided on the reception being a King and Queen for a day on the stage at the main center of South Jakarta where we can hosted 1000 people with the help of a professional caterers and wedding organizer.Β It was a huge auditorium hall near the outer ring road so that everybody can come easily via tollway.

The theme was with chandelier and fairy lights and little bird cages in several spot as we wanted to create a romantic yet elegance atmosphere that wasn’t dictated by the venue room. With the help of Sylvia from “Janur Kuning” we were able to extract the visions in my imagination and turn them into exquisite reality.

"You know what's my favorite drink right?"

"Feels like we were in Japan"

"We've got long long way to go together..."

"Wedding day is near, and we're so excited..."

All in all, the planning went very smooth thanks to our Wedding Organizer. Wulang and I agreed on everything and had no real dramas at all. We were able to meet our key organizers once again and make any final arrangements and confirm details. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment planning the wedding and would do it all again in an instant!

Hopefully it wasn’t mine… again…

OUR WEDDING DAY~

We had three ceremonies and one reception. Two ceremonies were at our home and funny is that both of our home is sharing the same address; Garuda street. What a coincidence right? The third ceremonies were held at the auditorium hall and a reception to follow afterwards.

Reading Quran with my mom's friends and the orphans

Singing shalawat with drums

Ustadz Najamuddin speaks about being a good wife and mother to their children

This is me listening carefully to Ustadz Najamuddin

Dad and mom -- dodol dawet (so cute!)

"ma... please forgive my sin..."

Hmmm... yellow is good on me huh ^_^

My Grandpa

Weeee... i hold lots of kereweng... and i don't know what kereweng is... LOL

i love my parents so much πŸ˜€

My sista, sis in law and aunty..

Smileeeeee...

Finally, on July 17th.

The whole morning I couldn’t grasp the concept that this was actually my wedding day! I remember feeling exceptionally calm and relaxed, but at the same time excited like a little girl.

The morning flew by, i already at the building and before I knew it all the crew had arrived and getting ready. Can’t explain it, but the crew had done an amazing work. They done it all right on schedule, no mistakes and i’m very happy to see the result.

Me and Wulang had both been waiting a long time for this moment, and after all this time with all the planning, it had finally come together. Now it’s the time for us to do the “Ijab Qobul” ceremony

Wulang may looks a little bit nervous but he hide it really well. He pronounced everything clearly and firmly. And yes, we are then pronounced as husband and wife.

Believe it or not, it only need 2,5 hours to do a complete makeup from scratch... amazing!

Woohoo... he didn't look nervous at all... good!

Keep smiling... keep smiling... and don't forget to breathe... LOL

That wasn't me crying... seriously...

Hmmm... Why the ring looks soooo small?... ^0^

Hey!... we finally get married...

Wow... look at flowers behind me... the size is almost as big as my head!

With my mom and dad... hee hee hee...

With my new mom and dad... ho ho ho...

Our wedding reception was just stunning; fairy lights and candles adorned in absolute elegance and the entire hall were glowing with lights, just the way i wanted it.Β I could see the guests walked across the red carpet to reach us at the stage and congratulate us as the newly weds.

All i could say that day was so special for me and for both of us. To have everyone there that was close to us and who we share our lives with.

After an hour celebrations Wulang and I wandered around and spoke to everyone at the hall which was lovely. We thanked them personally for coming.

dum dum dee dee dum... rum dee rum dee...

"hon... look at the camera... there... at your 1 o'clock"

Holding my breathe wont' make me look slim (HA HA)... so...

I love this photo very much...

Over all the day was just a fairytale wedding that couldn’t have been more perfect. And I have to say million thanks to all of my wedding vendors and the rest of people who involved at my wedding event.

But of course i had not been more gracious to one and only Almighty God Allah SWT, yesterday me and Wulang are finally rejoice in the glory of love; marriage. And only Allah has giving us such gracious luck and blessing because everything went smooth and perfectly well, Phew~
