The Wedding, September 8th.

A wedding is personal thing.

I remember the day I got married. It was September 9th, a humid Sunday morning. I've been jittery all night (well, 3 nights actually) about the day. I woke up at 3 after my not-so-good-sleep, got ready, and said a little prayer that everything was gonna be alright. Turned out is was. I was relieved. I knew I thought about other people a lot, while I was so nervous inside. And yes, it was one of the happiest day in my life.









Back to few months before the wedding, I am gonna share the preparation for this. It was 10 months before the wedding, that Nico and I set the date (well 2 dates, tbh). I researched that the venue was the first thing we had to deal with, after the date was fixed. Looking for our venue was kinda easy peasy, because we did want a garden ceremony for the blessing, and we know that outdoor venue in Jakarta was not so many in quantity. Ayana Jakarta (@ayanajakarta) is one option we had in mind. We fell in love with the venue at the first visit. The ballroom was decorated with beautiful lamp and in neutral color. The garden beside the ballroom was effortlessly pretty. We wanted in straight away, and thank God Ayana Jakarta was available on one of my date. Ci Christien, who helped us with our wedding preparation, was very helpful, too!

After dealing with the wedding venue, we had to look for another main vendors. Some said it was the make up artist that you should book right away. But I have my own priority. Photography and videography was what I had in mind, and I've been admiring Atipattra's magic work (@atipattra.co) after quite some time. I love the color, the tone, the people behind the work (you're gonna love Alvin and Carleen too!) , and of course the results of it. They made it so personal. Atipattra was the second vendor I contacted, and glad I could have them on the date. I also did my preceding photo and video with them, and it was lovely! And yes, all photos here were taken by Atipattra. Aren't they amazing?


I did some researched in picking my make up artist, and I was glad I chose Archangela Chelsea (@archangelachelsea) for my wedding. Before I met her in person I was quite nervous for the makeup, mostly because I know my eyes were not the easiest to deal with. I can assure you, Chelsea is the best. I met her on the makeup test day, and she learned my face like magic. I was also indecisive about what to do with my hair, but she tried some styles that she thought might suit me well. On my wedding day, she made me felt like the prettiest girl indeed. The makeup was flawless, the hair was so lovely. Thank you Chelsea and ka Ocha!


The garden sketch came to life

My choices of vendor after that would be the wedding organizer, the decoration, and the wedding dress. A friend of mine suggested Excellent wedding organiser (@excellent.wo) and we agreed to use their service after meeting ci Rita. She was very detail in preparation, knowing every process well, and helped us to check some deals we had with another vendor. The team also helped a lot on the wedding day, they kept me calm, they were good on timing, and run every details well. Our parents liked the way they worked too!


For the decoration, we had Classy decoration (@classydecor_id) in mind. Amor was great with details, she knew my preferred style after our first meeting. I could say the decoration was beyond my expectation. Everything is pretty and very much like what I had in mind. Almost every part were my favourites, the garden decoration, the photo corner, the ballroom decor. It was very beautiful.




And last but not least, I've been eyeing ko Bramanta (@bramantawijaya) for quite some time, and very glad I got through the wedding preparation with him. He was very supportive, a fairy god mother who worked the magic for the dress. I told him what I liked, and he combined my style with his beautiful work. I love love love the dress. I could not ask for a better designer for my wedding dress.



Those are the choices of main vendor we use for our wedding. Each of them delivered a very delicate work and we are satisfied with the results. On top of that, we are really happy everything went well on our wedding day. It was one of the happiest day of our life. The weather was nice (thank God!), everyone was happy, food was great. It's good to see our families and friends' happy faces. 

xo,
Jess
