Wedding Album Joe & Mia
After 4 years of dating, Joe and Mia finally decided to settle down to create a happy family of their own.
Love comes quietly and without any sound can sometimes tie two individuals’ fates together. MyFM’s DJ Joe and the love of his life, Mia, were strangers to each other and had met via social media. After only two years of dating, both had decided that they had found their lifetime partners.
When Joe first saw photos of Mia, he was attracted to her beautiful appearance. He decided to contact Mia via TalkBox, a communication software, and their friendship blossomed. Gradually, they exchanged phone numbers and actively talk to each other. Mia’s sister was concern about their friendship and decided to confront Joe about his intention with her sister. Joe then decided to profess his love to Mia. On Mia’s birthday, Joe brought a bouquet of flowers to her home and asked her to be his girlfriend. Mia was touched with the gesture and happily accepted Joe’s request.
Joe had hoped to get married when he reaches 25 to 27 years of age but he thought Mia was still too young to settle down. It was not until two years later that Mia told Joe that she could see them living with together and be each other’s life companion. It was a happy surprise, and so, they began to plan for the next chapter of their lives.
While Mia loved romantic proposal scenes, she knew they were purely scenes in a movie. But Joe had wanted to surprise Mia with a romantic proposal. So, with the help of his family and friends, Joe planned for an outing on an ordinary day: a concert and a dinner with Mia. But in reality, Joe’s ‘Wedding Proposal Team’ of family and friends were waiting at a rooftop restaurant in Kuala Lumpur.
When Joe took Mia to the restaurant, he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. Mia, who was busy admiring the night view, was so shocked that her mind went blank. The ‘Wedding Proposal Team’ also came out to help Joe with his proposal. Mia felt like she was the happiest woman on earth, and happily accepts Joe’s proposal.
Before their wedding, Joe and Mia looked through many local and international wedding studios for one that suits them. Even though they had a difficult time making decisions, they found a way to make things easier for them. When they are indecisive about an issue, then Joe will end up making the decision for the both of them, and if Mia feels strongly about a decision, then Joe will respect her wishes.
Joe and Mia had hoped for an outdoor garden wedding, but the general expenses for that setting are very high, while some low-cost locations are too remote. With elder family members and a budget to think about, the couple decided to hold an indoor garden wedding instead.
Joe and Mia are very grateful for MyFM’s DJ Jack Lim’s, advice and help in completing their wedding preparation with limited funds. Joe and Mia are also very pleased that both sets of parents are agreeable to a simple wedding.
Wedding Photography: Mia was pregnant during the photo shoot, and so, they communicated with their photographer to keep him informed so that he can make any necessary arrangements.
Site Selection: Joe and Mia had hoped for an outdoor garden wedding, but due to elderly family members and limited funds, they had a dreamlike indoor garden wedding instead.
Traditional Practices: Traditional wedding practices are usually very cumbersome, so Joe and Mia chose to follow only the important ones that their parents insist upon, like using a red umbrella and a tea ceremony.
Their Advice: Before the preparation, the couple should decide on who will be the one to make the final decision. Whoever that is, the other must trust and respect their decision. There may be arguments with the parents during this period, but try your best to explain the arrangement or any plans to them.
