Beach weddings are hands down, our absolute favourite, and Cheryl & Jack’s wedding calls to us in so many ways! Not only it is utterly beautiful with postcard-perfect scenery at a ridiculously stunning locale, but all the gorgeous details and color palette make this wedding prettier than any wedding has the right to be. Daren Chong captured the beauty of the day with his romantic story-telling style. Join us as we share this lovely Tiffany-blue beach affair below!
Love and proposal story
From the bride (Cheryl): We met in college and have been together for 8 years since, and the man decided to propose out of the blue! Jack is a very simple man and extravagant is not his thing. We got back from our long haul flight from the States and on the way back to my apartment, at the corridor he decided to say: “before we go back, and since it’s still a holiday until we cross the door…” he suddenly kneeled down and continued, “will you marry me?”
My first reaction was “here? right now?” and then it hit me and I said YES! Until today, everytime we share the story people would ask me “why not on the plane?”
