Back in A Year

Time flies!  Counting the days, it will be one year anniversary of Vivian & Roger’s Wedding in 5 days.  Thinking back to being part of their wedding, brought along many great memories.  Vivian and I known each other since university years but due to our busy work schedule we rarely meet up for gatherings.  I should catch up with her soon.

Thinking back about a year ago, after long lost contact with her, we finally met up for lunch and coffee to catch up one time.  During our date, Vivian told me about her great news of engagement.  I was really happy for her and we talked a bit about the status of her wedding arrangements.

A while after our date, Vivian contacted me and invited me to be her wedding coordinator.  I was super honoured to take this role of course.  Since then, I attended a few meetings with the bridal parties to finalize the details of the two wedding days.

I was very lucky actually since most of the arrangements have been done by Vivian’s lovely husband Roger.  I need to give a round of applause to Roger for all the great jobs he has done on their 2 days of wedding.  From venue sourcing, to details of the two different designs on each wedding day, to tiny details such as bouquet.  I seriously think he has done a super job! 

First day of wedding started off at 4:45am (yes, “am” not “pm”).  I knew I couldn’t wake up the bridesmaids from distance so I called the hotel a day before to set morning call for them.  But apparently the bridesmaids were probably too excited and were wild awake before the morning call.  I also called up the make-up artists as usual just to make sure they were on their way to the hotel for the bridesmaids’ make-up and hair.  Just as I thought all things are checked and I could get myself ready for meeting up the gals at the hotel, the make-up artists phoned and said “how come there is no one answering the door?”  Aw O, I know this would happen. They went to the wrong hotel!!  But at the end, we ended up ready at Vivian’s house on time for the guy’s pick-up-bride mission.  The games got carried on a bit longer than we expected.  However, if we didn’t play all the games, the same-day video wouldn’t be as great as it is now. 

After going from Fortress Hill to Deer Hill Bay, we ended up at Garden Suite of Peninsula. The ceremony was very pretty. I love that the March-In as it was different from most ceremony of my pasted clients.  Roger marched in with his mom first, followed by the super cute flower children, then the maid of honour and last but not least Vivian marched-in with both her parents. Very sweet.

After the ceremony, we rushed next door to get the wedding banquet ready at InterContinental.   The decor was great.  Little flowers but the design works made it all united. After running around for about 3 hours from arrival at the hotel, things were pretty settled.  The rundown on the first day was quite a challenge but with the whole bridal party’s cooperation, I would say we had a very successful evening. There were no boring moments at all.

The second day of wedding at Kowloon Shangri-la was a lot easier as everyone had a “rehearsal” the day before. Everything went well and people seemed like they had a great time.  Vivian and Roger kept thanking people and made people cry!  Even the photographer let out his tears.  But at least all were happy tears!

I am so glad that I get to meet a great bunch of people because of Vivian & Roger’s wedding. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were the greatest and most fun-to-hang-out-with bridal party bunch that I have worked with.  The work crew was also great.  I want to once again thank Vivian & Roger because they allowed me to be part of probably the most important memories in their lives.  Too bad that I didn’t really get to take a lot of photos with the couple and the bridal party as I was busy ensuring a smooth operation of wedding days.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary to Mr. & Mrs. Chau in advance!
