It was our 5 year wedding anniversary over the weekend. And since you’ve all asked to see our wedding photos for so long I dug these up for your perusal (What do you think of the long hair and the dress I designed?). I can’t believe I haven’t posted these earlier… do you know why? Because it only took me a whole day to find them! I went through 5 computers (we are laptop hoarders), stacks of random CDs and finally, a little black box aka “the external hard-drive” to acquire their whereabouts. 5 years ago no one who set foot in our house didn’t view our wedding album (I’m so sorry if you are one of the privileged few who had to endure our cheesy grins. And super special thanks to Mary my brides-maid and Jin, my brother-in-law for putting up with us on the day). Fast-forward to today, these prints once were lost, but now they’re found.
I was never the little girl who planned my wedding in my head. In fact I never thought I’d ever get married! God is hilarious. And it worked, that line filtered the boys who weren’t serious from the one who was. This little girl married her best friend of 10 years 5 years ago, and they’ve never had a fight.
You know how people say that ‘Behind every great man there’s a great woman?’ Well my amazing mother-in-law aside, in hubby’s case, behind Chian there’s just Chian (I’m next to him, as evident in these photos). And behind Cecylia.com the blog, there is also just Chian. My photographer, tech support, PA and editor-at-large, he is the incredible guy who still surprises me every day and inspires me to dream and create what I love. Before we started dating, a decade ago, we were still at uni, he said he wanted to marry me but he was happy to wait. He quoted Genesis 29:20, “Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.’ And it feels like just a few days ago when we said “I do.” Happy anniversary Chian!
