Today i just finished 1 part of my wedding story. It took me almost 10 months to set myself up to design the layout. So these photo below are some part of my 'wedding reception'. I will post the 'akad nikah' ('marriage solemnization') & 'wedding preparation' part later :), few pages need to be done (i haven't shut down my laptop for weeks), promise you the next post will be the akad nikah and the amazing preparation details. Well in the next 2 months i will be having my very 1st the real anniversary, after i celebrated the 7th anniversary as 'Couple' hehehe :).
Ten months ago, it's just 30x10=300days. So many things happened. Some are stay still pretty, some become awesome, some turned so bad, some suddenly blur. I lost one of my friend, he came to my wedding and gave me an unforgettable wishes in english with sundanese accent, was very funny and few months ago he passed. Rest in peace my friend, Hasbi. Me and Imunk have many friends but only few are close. We invited people that close to us that time, people that had contact with us about 3 months before our wedding day. Me and Imunk got a big issue (problems) in the progress of our marriage. I couldn't invite all cousins for 1 big matter i can't explain. But that year, i met new friends, new friends i like a lot to hang out with, and they also became important part of my wedding. I met them from a friend of me and Imunk, a really close friend the the last couple years. He was 1 of important part of my wedding, but everything has changes, like a lot. People, mistakes, selfish, and love. I'm very sensitive, once i like 1 person that much, i will always try to remember the goodness out of all the badness that ended everything. I hope he's doing great, and he will always be in me and Imunk's heart as 1 of the best friend of us. Oh let's end the sad story, i'm posting a happy beautiful moment just in a minute hehehe :')
On my wedding, i invited just closest friends, as me and Imunk wanted a simple small wedding celebration. We invited 100 people included family :), that's all we could afford hehehe... In 7 years relationship, we've been through a lot, and in the end we made it. We created our own dream wedding without letting anything or anyone could ever touched, it's our rule :). We worked so hard to make this wedding celebration happened. So after my 28th birthday plus Imunk proposed..., 2 months after that our wedding is happened, for real, finally :))
In 2 months preparation, it's just me, Imunk anddddd Hannaaaa Montanaaaa. At first, everything goes well, till a big new family problem came. It's all about the 'manners' thing and misunderstanding. I was too happy and expected beautiful things happen on the way to the wedding day. So when something happen out of my dream lists, i feel gloom, too gloom and i cried a lot. I spent my time most outside the house, not too close to the family, so i learned how to stand on my own choices. Imunk taught me how to share my heart, the 'heart' that i want to reach in the name of my wedding day. My heart was cold, it get cold because i realized i couldn't face the big problem that needed me to pass by before my wedding happened. I was thinking i'm not strong enough to get our relationship into marriage. I was so weak till i don't want to talk anymore. I pray a lot. One month before the day, i need to prepare so many things in doubted mind. I did not doubt Imunk, i knew he's the one, but i doubted myself. Pals, that explanation were also the reason why i finally finished designing part by part of the wedding. I need to set my self and my heart, to let go every failed expectations, and accept everything as my journey of life. Because all of the problems, me and Hanna give a sweet 6 out of magnificent 10 we've expected. Oh well, it's just 3 of us preparing the 2 months preparation time till the wedding day :), though many decoration weren't set as we expected hehehe, well '6' is Superb!
