“I believe in fairytales now because every moment I spend with you seems surreal.” ~ Sunny
When Taiwanese celebrity couple Sunny Wang and Dominique Choy went their separate ways in 2007, little did they know that a little thing called fate would keep them around each other over the years, and bring them together again in a luxe enchanted garden wedding at the 140-year-old Swifts mansion in Darling Point, Sydney. Looking every bit the leading lady, the bride made her entrance in a horse-drawn carriage wearing a couture WTC Studio gown complete with a 40-foot train. For their dinner reception in a clear-roof marquee, Dominique changed into a midnight blue illusion lace Paolo Sebastian number. But perhaps what's most captivating is the undeniable chemistry she shares with her Prince Charming, unmissable in these portraits by Lara Hotz Photography.
Watch this short film of the couple's wedding day captured by La Lune Cinema…
What was the proposal like?
“It was my birthday and I had no idea Sunny was planning anything. He told me that we were to have lunch with his best friend’s parents which I thought was strange but I didn’t ask too many questions. When I got to their penthouse apartment, I saw our families there along with close friends and they all shouted, ‘Surprise!’ I was really surprised and thought it was just a birthday surprise party but then Sunny started making a speech and said that we were his real life fairytale, got down on one knee and proposed. I was so shocked because I had no idea this would happen and started tearing because I was so touched. I never saw it coming.” ~ Dominique
The couple share their oh-so-romantic vows with us...
I believe in fate now because I am lucky enough for you to come back into my life again. I believe in fairytales now because every moment I spend with you seems surreal. I believe in love now because you and I created something so special, so passionate, so crazy, and so unconditional that I know even after this lifetime, I will find you no matter where you are and make you fall in love with me all over again. I don’t ever want to lose you.
Because of you, I now believe in fairytales and happy endings. I never saw this day coming, especially with someone who was right in front of me the whole time, and I am truly blessed that fate brought us together. When I think about it, I feel like everything that has ever happened in my life led me to this moment. And when I am with you, everything seems worth it because if I had done one thing different, I would have never met you. So from today onwards, let us dream together beyond the clouds until infinity, with the sun forever shining through my eyes. I love you.
Congratulations on your marriage, Sunny and Dominique! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
