Ivan and April’s hotel ballroom wedding reception and banquet made for an ultra luxe affair with rich blooms of dark red and maroon adorning the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. The couple also opted for timeless gold decorations as an added touch of glamour for their romantic wedding day shot by Louis Loo Photography and planned by Moments.
How did you meet and how did he propose?
“We met through a mutual friend. Ivan proposed privately on his birthday during a staycation at the Majestic hotel.” ~ April
What was the color palette of your wedding?
“Dark red and maroon.” ~ Ivan and April
How did you decorate your venue?
“We had help from Moments.” ~ Ivan and April
What sort of wedding favours did you opt for, and why?
“We used Hometown Hainan Coffee takeaway cups and stuffed them with 3 in 1 coffee because it’s the family business.” ~ Ivan and April
Any tips or wedding advice for other brides and grooms-to-be?
“Expect that there will be guests who will pull out at the very last minute or show up at the very last minute without prior notice and it can be a bit taxing especially if you have arranged all your seating plans nicely.” ~ Ivan and April
What do you think makes a strong marriage?
“Something we have learned is that a strong marriage consists of two people who embrace both the strengths and weaknesses of the other. Also, not every day is about two people just being in love but to truly learn to live with each other, accept each other and change for the better. And ultimately, it’s to achieve the same family goals together till we have wrinkles and a whole head of gray.” ~ Ivan and April
Congratulations on your marriage, Ivan and April! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
