THE WEDDING PROPER
BELOW ARE PHOTOS OF THE BRIDE AND GROOM INSIDE THE GRAND BALLROM OF LE MERIDIEN HOTEL IN KUALA LUMPUR, STARTING FROM THE MOMENT THE RADIANT COUPLE ENTERED THE BALLROOM TO THEIR FIRST OFFICIAL KISS.
Their first official kiss in Malaysia! Bet theyalready did plenty of mouthing and lipping when they married in California some 5 months ago!
Their second kiss outside Meridien ballroom as the first was on stage inside the ballroom!
They could not disentangle their tongues as they locked their lips!
And the long and short of it? They are passionately in love!

The bride and groom singing fervently and with pure passion about their love for God and each other. Notice the closed eyes!
The bride listening to what her husband had to say about her. It consisted of the sweetest things imaginable!
Weeping tears of joy
Lucky her waterproof mascara held
Everyone stretched their right arm to wish the couple all the best
All the guests participated willingly
So happy together and looking so lovely in Keith Kee's wedding gown
The Malaysian bridal contingent, bet their American version was not this glamorous! Carrie Lee, Meng Choo, Levy Li, Rachel Tan, Dan Mark, Alex, Jon and David Chen
Meng Choo and Levy Li are not married. Rachel Tan is and Carrie Lee is 6 months pregnant!
Kissing the bride by her maids of honour; all I notice is Levy Li's bareback!
What a fabulous shot! I never realise I am such a brilliant photographer although my Leica D-Lux 20 had something to do with it!
The ultra beautiful Carrie Lee married on 11/11/11 a most auspicious date and is now 6 months pregnant though her Carven Ong gown covered her tummy nicely
A rousing cheer by Alex, Dan, David and Jonathan
The couple's first dance
Dancing is one of their hobbies and it shows
Shafinaz Selamat sang just 1 song! I asked her to sing 3 but she declined!
Cutting their wedding cake
All smiles and why not?
Their grins got wider and wider
A toast to the newly weds!
