Congrats, Mark and Charmaine! We are so honored to be a part of this beautiful wedding filled with gorgeousness and loads of pretty details. Thank you so much for sharing your big day with us.
Our friends at Jim Liaw Photography were the official photographers for Mark and Charmaine's wedding ceremony and dinner reception at Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa in Cyberjaya, and the ever talented team at Events Wizard planned this truly memorable wedding. We couldn't have asked for more brilliant people to work with for treasured occasions like these!
It must be said that our beautiful bride Charmaine played a huge part in setting the tone, mood and ambiance for the decor. How huge? She personally bought all the ornaments and decor items! Other than the invitation card in the top right photo that was designed by our bride and made in Malaysia, everything else was flown back to Malaysia from Germany where Charmaine and Mark reside. Charmaine tells us that the decor items were sourced mainly in Germany, and some in France. We are loving the lace, ivory satin and diamante button on the invitation - how elegant and sophisticated!
What's not to love about pearls and diamante? From strings of pearls to glass pebbles, candles and diamante stones to heart-shaped ornaments, Charmaine bought them all. And we helped to bring together her vision for a shimmery, sparkly wedding by dressing up the ornaments and by decorating with the loose objects, as well as florals, of course.
A pop of color is always chic and stylish, especially for an all-white wedding. Other than some colorful gerbera daisies for the reception table, our couple and their team at Events Wizard chose to use fun and bright colors at their Candy Bar. We love it a lot! The "cherry blossoms" provided by Cyberview Lodge were a lovely touch for this pretty garden wedding.
As the wedding party moved indoors to the ballroom for the dinner reception, the evening takes a glamorous turn, inspired by Charmaine's vast selection of ornaments and decorative items in a big way. Check it out...
The clear plastic baubles in the top photo is about the size of a golfball that twists to open. Inside were lovely chocolates for Charmaine and Mark's guests. The team at Events Wizards carefully put together the teardrop-shaped beads and attached them to each bauble. Talk about dedication! There is such a festive feel to the whole set-up you can't help but to feel the magic everywhere!
Clockwise from top left: a "wishing tree" for guests to leave their messages of well wishes to our couple, the elegant wedding cake decorated with bling and ivory satin ribbons, candles on top of the floral stands, and one of the 5-feet floral stands lining the walkway into the ballroom.
All eyes were on the main table, of course! Florals for the arrangements included roses, phalaenopsis, eustoma, dianthus and Taiwan ivy, while little cones of baby's breath decorated with pearls, crystals and glass beads added more texture and dimension.
The amount of pearls, glass beads and glass pebbles were staggering - they arrived in jars, and we definitely had fun with them! The top right photo features one of the several cones we made, topped with sizeable "diamond" - one of four that Charmaine had bought. What a delightful detail to decorate with!
In addition to all the pearls, crystals, glass beads, pebbles and other ornaments, Charmaine also bought organza rosettes which we used to decorate the chair-backs at the main table. The strings of beads hanging from the chandelier and the ceiling were provided by Cyberview Lodge - they really help to complete the ambiance for the evening don't they?
For the bride who isn't sure how she would like her wedding to look like, don't worry. If you're able to get together items that you really like and have some idea of a theme, they can really help to shape a direction and vision for your big day. It worked for Charmaine and it could surely work for you :)
