From the Bride... Shawn and I met when we were working on a project together in Beijing. Since we first met, it has been a wonderful 2 year up until our lovely and fairy tale wedding. Shawn was originally from Shanghai but spent majority of his life in the U.S. and later moved to Hong Kong after business school. While I grew up in Shanghai as well, I spent a significant amount of time studying in London and later working in Hong Kong. We actually lived in the same building while we were in Hong Kong but did not know each other until we met each other in Beijing, the beginning of our magical journey together.
We had many choices for our wedding venue and there were simply too many beautiful and charming places around the world. We knew we wanted a destination wedding at an exotic location where we could share this special moment in our lives with those who are closest to us. With the help of our wedding planner, Tiara Wedding in Hong Kong, we narrowed our wedding venue to the island of Bali. Although neither Shawn nor I have ever set foot in Bali before, we were deeply attracted to Bali because of its exquisite and exotic scenery, rich culture and spirituality, and warm hospitality. On Oct 12, 2012, we held our small and intimate wedding in Bali with our parents and closest relatives. The wedding turned out to be everything we had imagined it to be - it was surreal and time seems to have stood still for the entire wedding. We were truly blessed to have held it on the Island of the God and it was a moment that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Our magical journey together continues!
