“We made our marriage official at the Armenian Church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator because of its beautiful architecture and heritage. Pastor Freddie Ho, whom Tim has known since childhood, conducted the ceremony, and punctuated the service with little anecdotes about the young Tim.

Later that evening, we did dinner with close friends at Brazil Churrasco, and we all had a great time and ate too much! The incredibly creative Kim Tan from the restaurant created the decor with the help of our friends. She recycled the flowers used at the service to decorate the place, and even suggested fun names for the tables.

We had a more traditional banquet on the second night at the Singapore Island Country Club for family, relatives, and other friends and colleagues. We liked the expansive view of greenery from the ballroom.

We will always be grateful for the love and support of our family and closest friends.”
