Yanah and King met while they were both working for IBM Global Process Services. "On my first day of work, a tall bald guy caught my attention because he almost bumped into a glass door because he was staring at me. Shortly after, I found out that the same guy would be my trainer, and eventually the love of my life," Yanah narrates.
Eventually, romance blossomed between the two. On the eve of their third anniversary, King proposed to Yanah while cruising on a yacht with their closest friends. The bride says, "I was having a great night out with my IBM friends, then suddenly a familiar voice was singing the song The Way I am. Then to my surprise, King appeared while holding a bouquet and a lovely ring. He asked me if I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him, and of course, I said 'Yes!'” The couple capped off the magical night with a grand fireworks display.
To make sure that their wedding was as beautiful as they envisioned it to be, Yanah and King personally handpicked the details for their big day. The couple also took on DIY projects for the ceremony. The bride shares, "We crafted the arrhae and ring pillows, offertory candles and offertory baskets. Also, I created a wedding website to serve as the RSVP [tool] for our guests."
Despite having to plan their wedding from abroad, the couple was able to add their personal touch to their celebration. It helped that the bride had been collecting bridal magazines since she was 18, and so she already knew what she wanted. The couple just hired an on-the-day coordinator to take over on the big day.
On planning a wedding, the bride says, "Do a lot of research on your suppliers. It's best to read reviews and client feedback first before you book them for your big day. Also, relax and enjoy every moment during your wedding, because it only happens once." The couple's romantic affair became memorable because they pulled off their dream wedding despite planning from abroad.
