Opposites attract, they say.
And in the case of Jason and Ai, those words could not be truer.
Raised with four brothers, Ai is full of bright life and gusto, a hearty laugh always ready to belie her sweet and demure nature. She greets every moment of life head on and revels in the unexpected. And according to her friends, she enjoys a good drink. So, this naturally meant that on their first date, Ai would order more than a single beer. But much to her surprise and horror, Jason would order a mocktail: specifically, one that tasted of apples and berries.
In Jason’s defence, it was a calculated decision, one that spoke bounds of his person and personality. Jason is the calm to Ai’s bubbly; he is analytical, precise and organised with a penchant for sad love songs. On this first date, he had thought that ordering an Apple Berry mocktail would show off his sensitive side. Little did he know, Ai was completely uninterested. But, they had a second date and another after that and as they say, the rest is history.
Most wedding dinners wind down and become stately formal affairs to celebrate the couple and is most commonly hosted by their parents. But, Jason and Ai kept it simple and casual with a dreamy and romantic poolside buffet instead of a sit-down dinner, allowing their guests to mingle and move around. Surrounded by tropical and lush elegance that reflected both Jason and Ai’s Malaysian heritage, it was not the first surprise that Jason and Ai had up their sleeves.
As a couple, Jason and Ai are the best of both worlds. They are exciting, considerate and also down-to-earth; Ai is mellowed by Jason’s meticulous nature and Jason learns how to have fun.
From a fully choreographed dance to Frank Sinatra’s classic, Fly Me to the Moon, that made everyone smile and down to the intricately planned decorations, there was a touch of the couple and their personality in every detail.
They say that when you’ve been with someone long enough, you tend to absorb their traits and Jason definitely learnt a thing or two from Ai! He surprised his new bride with a soulful serenade of Michael Buble’s ‘Everything’ that spoke of his love for her:
