Enrico & Agnes

The Wedding by Dre

I’ve shot many weddings, but this one is special. It’s the first wedding I’ve ever shot in Bandung, a city I call home. The bride’s home was a mere 5 minute drive from where I live. It’s funny… at our initial meeting I even found out that we are actually distant cousins. Talk about a small world, right?

It was this small world that allowed me to see so many familiar faces throughout the entire event. It was so good to work with the city’s local vendors too. Ling Ling of Tomodachi, the wedding organizer, happens to be the mother of my daughter’s friend at school. Yu Cien of Lotus, the decorator, used to be my sister-in-laws Sunday school teacher. And Lily Hindjaya, the designer and maker of their exquisite cake, used to take care of me during my school days in Singapore. It’s amazing how even the most luxurious six-star hotel made the world seemed small.

Enrico and Agnes’ wedding was a grand affair filled with a full orchestra and distinguished guests during the reception. But that wasn’t the most important part. It was the never-ending smiles of the bride and groom that made the night so memorable. They looked like they really had a great time.

Congratulations once again to the happy couple. Let’s keep in touch and meet sometime for dinner in Bandung!
