This is actually our 1st wedding in Palembang, a city rich with their sea product (fish) and famous their local food called Pempek. Located in Western part of Sumatera, people in Palembang mostly eats Pempek rather than rice. They can eat Pempek from breakfast till dinner. Pempek itself is actually combination between "Sagu+Gabus fish". That's why we are extremely excited to shoot a wedding in Palembang, one is to taste the delicious local dish, but secondly and more importantly, because we are shooting a wedding of one of the property lords in Palembang, Fredy and Nova.
Freddy as I know, is a very strict man, but yet very sweet to Nova. He is typically a very discipline guy, perfectionist type of guy, and independent. What I can say for sure is he is very lucky to have Nova.
Nova is very sweet girl, although she owns one of the biggest hotel in Palembang she is a very humple person. She is always full of smiles, even while shooting from the early morning till late at night, she is always smiling to everybody.
And that smile is contagious! We really enjoyed ourselves there even though we had to deal with many different challenges of shooting in a new and unfamiliar place. The whole day, that smile kept us going, and we ended up having the time of our lives there in Palembang, and as we can see, so did the rest of the 2000 people in their jam packed reception.
Congrats to the happy couple! May your days be filled with smiles!
