It’s one of the greatest times of your life when you realize how lucky you are when all is supporting you to reach your dreams. This blog is specially dedicated to all the people who helped and supported us in making this dream come to life.
It’s been a long two weeks since we had our first-ever bridal fair, I know this might sound quite late but I am are very sure that it will never be too late to thank each and every one who helped us, supported us, and dream with us to this all new journey. I am deeply overwhelmed from all the blessings that we received on the day of the fair, to the overflowing inquiries after, the compliments from the couples and guests who visited to see our works, and even from our fellow suppliers.
This experience will forever inspire us to continue do our best, to push our limits, to dream higher and to believe more in ourselves that our passion in capturing stories of love can touch other’s lives. Thank you for believing in us!
With that, I would like to have this page to personally thank everyone. First, I would like to give it all to our Lord Almighty for giving us the strength and courage to make this all happen. You are the best, Lord!
