Khun Purima Boonkhum and Khun Chayaphol Phommakun
The Okura Prestige Bangkok
Pol and Ja-Aey were married on the 6th of March, 2011. To mark their special occasion, they held a 4th anniversary celebration. Khun Pol, the husband, got inspired to hold the event by a number of events that he and his wife went through since getting married. Both of them experienced a range of good and bad, and some of their biggest mistakes and challenges made both of them think back on when was their happiest time—the answer was their wedding day. Celebrating this anniversary for them was like a return to their newlywed days, and a fresh start on life.
Even with the passing of so many years, the couple Chic Planner for their special event, just as they had four years previous for their wedding. They liked the creative ideas of Chic’s team, their beautifully executed results, and appreciated Chic’s attentive customer care. The couple threw down the challenge to come up with an event even more extravagant than the first time around; Chic Planner didn’t disappoint them.
Before their wedding day, the couple traveled to Hokkaido, Japan to shoot their pre-wedding photos. High recommended by their wedding planner for the beauty of its natural locations, it remained a rare choice for wedding couples for photo shoots because of the cold weather and long distance. Both bride and groom, lovers of a good challenge and fans of going their own way, made the trip to Hokkaido. They had to brave the biting cold, but once they saw the impressive images, they knew it was more than worth the trip.
The location chosen for their celebration was The Okura Prestige Bangkok, a new hotel fitted with excellent facilities. The hotel’s banquet room was beautiful, fit with the event concept, and had the guest capacity. Bride and groom especially wanted extravagance and elegance—but with a warm touch, as this was a celebration of their love together. The couple kept their guest list intimate: only 120 of their closest friends and relatives were invited. Over 75,000 roses were used to decorate their event; everyone in attendance was dressed in red, giving the celebration a feeling of classic luxury. The beautiful bride wore a dress with a train extending to three meters and a veil nearly ten meters long. Most impressive, though, were the vows by both bride and groom, committed to each other once again before a crowd of witnesses: that they would love and cherish each other for the rest of their lives, with the same love as on the day they decided to spend their life together.
This wedding anniversary, under an elegant but cordial atmosphere, both celebrated and was built from the love and happiness of bride and groom. Time is the true test; true love for each other will always remain firm.
