Our city of the 1920s
9 January 2011
So the day had come finally…the happiest day of our lives and when our journey together begins…
After all the 5 months planning, we stood there and saw that what we had worked on, what we had worried and stressed on had finally come through and it was all worth it. Everything came out perfect and we couldn’t wish for anything better than what it is 🙂
And ermmm..we did plan for a CHICAGO Jazz 1920s, but the decor ended up being a lil bit here n there out of Chicago :p
Here is the final look of our lil city…
We didn’t end up having the ‘grand’ entrance gate that we had planned for,
but instead, we got our own London post boxes (8 of ’em also!) with our very own postbox sticker that I created myself 😉
Above the post-office boxes are our photos in vintage film roll done by our brothers,
Enrico F. Limman as the photographer and R. Laurent Setjodiningrat as the editor.
The photos turned out really cool, so in love with the 22m-long photograph now 😀
As you enter the ballroom, you’ll pass our living room first that is full of 1920s props and our pictures from
traveling the world when we were still dating.
Entering the ballroom and you will first stroll into the park with its benches
Ok maybe you’re not interested in reviving some old car, but you certainly need to fill up ur gas rite?
watch for the street signs!! make sure you know where to go!
Alrite, alrite, before we get a wiggle on the giggle water, let’s get hitched first in the ‘city hall’!
Our very own ‘city hall’ wedding stage 😉
Ok let’s get a wiggle to the speakeasy back there in the corner, booze it up and salute to this day!
This is where we’re gonna party it up with the band, Mike’s Apartment, jamming on the back of the truck all night till late!
These guys really rock our wedding til late and everybody was just singing to the tune while gulping down all the liquors!
The party ended at 1am but we did wish it never ended :p
Well hope you enjoyed strolling down our lil city and those who came had a blast 🙂
It was unfortunate that our city had to be torn down right after the party 😥 we did wonder if we could keep it up for 1 more day just so we can enjoy it again hahaha..well, of course not! U wish!
But now looking at all the pictures, we’re thinking “s**t! how did we manage to do all those??” I guess it’s all thanks to the team, our family’s support & help, and definitely to our own patience to each other! hahaha
