Our Story

Like every love story, it always starts with one moment that makes your heart skips a beat and your world turns around. Strangely enough, our story began with a simple Facebook message from Alex to Vivi that would change our life forever. Our relationship then filled with long distance calls and virtual commitment between Auckland (GMT +12) and Vancouver(GMT -7) for a good 6 months, before Alex's one month visit to Vancouver during summer 2013 turned into a permanent stay up until now.

Oh yeah, did we mention that our first time meeting each other physically was 3 months after we committed into the relationship? Yes it was! And one funny story, the first thing that came out from Vivi when we met for the first time at Jakarta airport was "You look darker than you were on Facetime". And then we laughed together. That was definitely an ice breaking moment!

Fast forward to 2014 Christmas holiday, Alex proposed to Vivi and luckily she said... 'YES!'. This wedding will definitely be one of the most important moments in our life and we want to share the memories with people that we care the most.

Alex The Groom

Tell us about your self

I was born and raised in a small city in the middle of Sumatra Island, Indonesia. I loves music as much as coding, and I am a big fan of Inter Milan, after all it was my first love (Sorry Vivi, but I love you more now! :p).

What do you like about your relationship with Vivi?

One thing that I love the most about our relationship is that we complement each other in many ways. She's more talkative, I'm more passive. She's a pessimist, I'm an optimist. She's a designer, I'm a developer. But one thing that glue us together is that we love each other very much.

Vivi The Bride

Tell us about your self

I am a little petite girl from a big city called Jakarta, who live and breathe everything about creativity in design, craft and a little bit of Alex in between :)

What do you like about Alex?

Ever since we've been together for the past 3 years, he never failed to make me laugh with his silliness and I'm very sure that no one will ever love me as much as he does, no matter how annoying I can be, and that's when I know that I want to spend the rest of my life with him.
