What hashtag do you get when Edward Kang marries Joanne Chien? #chienkangmarriage, or otherwise known as 健康 marriage! So cute right! This has got to be one of the cutest hashtags we have come across so far. A healthy marriage will lead to a happy life!
For the morning gatecrash, we were tickled to see the game that the bridesmaids prepared for the guys. Because of his name Edward, the bridesmaids created a crossword puzzle featuring many famous celebrities/characters/ whose first name is Edward. The guys had to guess the answers purely based on the number of letters they see on the puzzle. Alternatively, they could obtain a photo (as a clue) by simply giving a hongbao to the bridesmaids! If you are curious, some of the easier answers include Ed Sheeran and Edwards Scissorhands. 😀
We love this wedding for so many reasons, and one more reason is that the venues of their wedding had some connections to Alvin and I. Their banquet was held at Carlton Hotel, which was where we got married 7.5 years ago! Yes, we have been married for THAT LONG! As for their church wedding at Bedok Lutheran Church, that’s just opposite across the road from where Alvin used to live. Traveling to both venues brought back so many memories for both of us. 🙂

Review by Joanne
Our photographer friend recommended Alvin and Michelle from Awesome Memories for our actual day photography, and we are so glad that we chose them to cover this special event. It was evident right from the start that both of them have much experience with weddings; we felt comfortable and confident in consulting them for advice in planning our actual day schedule. They took time to understand what we most wanted out of the photos and were able to deliver. Photos were nicely framed and able to capture the emotions of our guests.
Their commitment to their work is commendable. Our guests were pleasantly surprised and impressed to find that Michelle was still so engaged in helping us get good photos even while she was pregnant. Their presence also helped to ease some of the wedding tensions that we experienced on our wedding day, and we would recommend them to anyone looking for great photographers to cover their special day.
