From Flying Bride...Indah is an Indonesian Chinese, whereas Robin is an American with Filipino root. Since the very first meeting, I knew that their different heritage and background would make their wedding very unique, rich with traditions that if embraced together tastefully would make one great, meaningful and unforgettable wedding.

With that in mind, I designed their wedding to combine various cultures such as Peranakan style Chinese Tea Ceremony, and a reception dinner that was infused with cultural items such as batik patterns (Indonesia), and Capiz (Philippines) in the decoration. However, instead of the usual traditional wedding that is very colorful with various bold color, Indah wants her wedding to be elegant and dreamy. Hence, we gave an interesting twist to the theme by using pastel color such as beige, blush pink, coral, light blue and turquoise to result in a one-of-a-kind wedding so beautiful beyond words.

Rama & Shinta wayang was also chosen as a symbol of their wedding as Indah and Robin went on their first date to watch Wayang show. It did not stop there as Indah has been faithfully keeping Shinta’s wayang, a present from Robin, who keeps Rama’s wayang, in the hope that one day they (and the wayangs) would be together just like the story of Rama & Shinta.

Their wedding day was indeed a very sentimental day for Indah & Robin. A day that Indah claimed to be the best day of her life, so perfect her family and guests gushed about how it was the best wedding they have ever attended.
