Wedding Talk: Save the Date.

Over the weekend, we had a mini photoshoot! By 'we', I meant Rocky, the boy and I, hehe.

It's for our Save the Date (which is actually just a simple FB event, har har). We weren't planning to do a Save the Date, but seeing that we have friends coming from all over (Singapore, Australia, Korea), we thought we will just do a simple one on FB! And I got the idea of including Rocky, 'cause I figured it will put a smile or two on people's faces. #crazydoglady

Since it was meant to be just a simple shoot, I asked for a favor from Teeny to be our photographer for the day! She actually has quite a good eye for photography, so she was the perfect person for the job. :) We actually meant to do this shoot a few weeks back, but somehow someone was always busy, so in the end it was pushed to this weekend. This makes me feel quite sheepish, 'cause traditionally Save the Dates are supposed to be sent 5-6 months ahead of the wedding (I just found out about this yesterday wtf). Oops. Anyway, it turned out to be the perfect timing 'cause Jing was back, and she was Teeny's assistant, haha. I.e. holding our stuff and making weird sounds to entice Rocky to look at the camera wtf.

It actually turned out to be really fun, and we took a lot more shots than I initially anticipated! Maybe can share in our wedding even, haha. .We are not taking any pre-wedding photos this year, so this is a good prelude to our wedding shoot and any pre-wedding shoot we will do next year! :P

Anyway, here are some behind-the-scene photos. All candid photos! :D

Finally got to wear my old Vivienne Westwood x Melissas! I do think that they make great wedding shoes (so whimsical and fun!), but they are not really my style anymore. T_T So it was fun to be able to wear them for this shoot! :)

Got this photo while testing lighting under this tree lol. Wearing a floral crown from Bangkok, and an old dress from Topshop.

We have quite a few that we like though, so maybe we might change the photo soon? Haha.
