Gerard & Rebecca– the 2nd wedding I helped out at this year! Compared to Isaac & Cheryl’s wedding, this wedding was less of a grand/ formal presentation but more rustic, a “Pinterest” wedding, as the bride herself called it! Being in Singapore, what couples normally do would be to sign up for bridal packages with a Bridal boutique or the hotel venue that they were gonna have their wedding at. And these packages normally don’t include doing up the reception area much. And so for Gerard & Rebecca, having some extra help to doll up the reception was really something they wanted for their own. Say, a representation of what message they would like to bring across to their guests.
And to this couple, words were a huge part of how they wanted to bring that spirit across. With the help of their good friend (and my now new friend!)- Esther Ann, we joined our forces to make this dream a reality for our precious couple!
Apart from the beautiful showcase that Esther Ann and I did, the gorgeous bride requested for me to custom make a necklace just for her! After sharing back and forth some thoughts on the design and the vision I had for it, here’s the end product:

Love how this necklace is a little larger than life, yet still elegant with the soft whites in different shades (will blog more about the necklace soon!). Rebecca was so happy with the necklace that I was pleased with my job haha! What made me even more happy was that I had friends who recognized my design as the lovely bride walked down the aisle 🙂
I was really satisfied at how everything turned out for this wedding :’) God really pulled everything together for good for this beloved couple. Gerard and Rebecca wanted so much to have their wedding exude an air of celebration of God’s love and faithfulness, and it did. It wasn’t really about them and their union in the end, but about how faithful the Lord had been to them in each of their journeys, and then how the Lord made sure that this journey they were taking together in this new season, starts with a love and laughter-filled beginning.
This is why I love weddings.
