Worth the Wait

If Love is patient, then my beautiful bestie Lisa is Love. After awaiting half of her life for this memorable moment (read 13 years 5 months), she and her high school sweetheart literally tied the knot last weekend (sorry for the lack of photographic evidence, but you will just have to believe me, there was a ribbon tying ceremony). Although I’ve known the groom for over a decade, their wedding day really highlighted why my bestie fell for him. Having been born and raised in Paris, he speaks 5 languages. And who knew that conversing in French really does maketh a man more attractive!

The romantic affair was somewhat a sweet trip down memory lane. So many old friends (years of friendship, not age) in sight, so many unfinished conversations, as well as new introductions, it was like a reunion, celebrating their union. The rain saluted briefly and the sun greeted with a royal wave. Aside from a few crude jokes that almost brought everyone back to a cringe-worthy high-school setting, the day was perfect. Could there have been a better way to end the day than to watch a group of aunties and uncles dance Gangnam style whilst indulging in a dessert buffet? Probably not. After all, love is sweet.

Congratulations Lisa & Ray. xx

若爱是恒久忍耐,那我的好朋友Lisa 就是爱。默默地,她等待了一半的人生(十三年五月)终于与她中学的男朋友结了婚。我认识新郎也十几年了,但今天的婚礼终于点缀了为什么她喜欢上他。他出生在巴黎,住了十几年,能说五种语言!别人总说男人说法语超好听,我才刚意识到。

Thanks for the beautiful blog my dearest dearest bestie CC! This blog summarised it perfectly. It was a short but sweet wedding celebrating the end of our very long courtship and the beginning of an even longer journey as life long partners. Thank you and all the rest of the besties for coming and being apart of that special day. Love you all very much. Lis xoxo

aww glad you enjoyed the read Lis! Thank you for having us there. It seems difficult to comprehend how long I’ve known you and seen you and Ray grow closer together on your lifelong journey. Wish you both so much love, joy and peace. Can’t wait to see you again!
