pohai & ven's wedding 1:28 pm
Last Saturday was Po Hai and Vendela's wedding at the Orchard Hotel! They allocated three tables especially to the salsa people, and as to be expected, our three tables were the noisiest and craziest in the entire ballroom too.
Zee and Alicia were the emcees for the night, English and Mandarin respectively. Alicia is a superb Chinese emcee - her voice has such calming tones in a late-night radio deejay way, she was really nice to listen to! Zee was, well, just being typical Zee on stage. :P
Random picture of a decorated fish head (courtesy of Mengwei and I) - Zee asked us to keep some food for him while he was on stage, and he specifically requested for the fish head, so...! We're how kind right. Hahaha.
I like this picture because we're how matching!
Apparently blue was quite the popular color for the night - blue and black, to be exact. Quite ironic, because I opted not to wear black thinking every other person would be in black. Well, well, well, how wrong I was. I guess we salsa people like our vibrant colors more than most.
Check out Gupson in his three-piece suit! Okay, well, the jacket isn't on in this picture but you get the idea. I actually thought I would be vaguely over-dressed, especially when I saw the rest of the crowd on the way up to the ballroom, but I suppose we can always count on the salsa crowd to dress up for important occasions. A good thing, really, because I think it's rude to not bother for wedding dinners - in fact, I have a good mind to deny entry or kick out anyone who tries to attend mine in jeans and t-shirt or something along those lines. Even a polo tee wouldn't cut it by my standards!
See how happy the groom is! He was smiling like mad the whole night. :)
I'm too lazy to have to resize and post so many pictures up here in this entry, so if you guys wanna see more, hop onto my facebook album for a look.
Congratulations to the both of you once again, and may you have many years of bliss ahead. :)
