i'm happy for her but at the same time i can't hold back these tears. Terharu sangat. Linda and Butet have been together for like 8 (or was it 9?) years. Berkenal, mengorat, dan menggedik di zaman matrik, survived long distance relationship while she's in UMS Sabah and he's in Tanah Malaya, survived the ups and downs of relationship.. They're like the thick-and-thin couple.
And now they are married.
i'm honored when she said "Okay, ko jadi bridesmaid akuu..". Even more honored when asked to be her maid of honor.
Majlis nikah dia berjalan lancar, alhamdulillah. Dinikahkan oleh ayahanda sendiri, sah jadi wife Butet dengan sekali lafaz. You're the man, derrrr!!
i was determined not to cry sebab saya adalah wanita macho. Tapi bila selesai je akad nikah tu, tetiba mokcik (mama si Linda) menangis and automatically habuk pon masuk mata saya lalu berair mata disitu. Habuk okay, saya tak nanges. Really.
The gorgeous bride :')
Some of the bridesmaids.
Then there was the majlis bersanding. It was beautiful. The food's delish (good to know coz i hired the very same caterer for my majlis!), the deco's awesome (love the blue-and-white combination and the chiviary chairs for VIP tables), the guest book table was divine, and i love the personalized DIY guest book.
Linda was nervous sebelum nak berjalan masuk gi pelamin tu. "Babe aku cuak. Kaki aku menggigil!". True enough, i saw her gown shaking. i'm nervous myself. The best i could do is say, "Lek babe. Just smile and wave. Smile and wave.." Padahal, aku pon cuak kot!
Dah sampai atas pelamin tu baru okay sket (even though she's still shaking :p). You'd thought we'd behave and act all ayu and manis and sopan for the majlis. Fat chance! Atas pelamin tu berborak, membahan each other, panggil each other giler, me ordering them both "senyum senyum senyum!!", people-spotting, and sempat Linda tanya "Babe diorang semua tengah pandang aku ke?" (-__-).
The cover of their handmade guestbook. Comel bukan?
The awesome guestbook table deco by KerjaKahwin team.
Tet muka gatal tak sabar lettewwww!
Aren't they gorgeous?
With her bridesmaids.
Bottom line is, BABE, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I'M SO FREAKING HAPPY FOR BOTH OF YOU!! May you both have a blessed marriage, dapat anak-anak yang comel cantik jelita handsome cool awesome macam aku tapi lagi beriman daripada aku, and stay loving sampai ke akhir hayat okeh?
Ok, ada habuk masuk mata lagi. Bye.
