Jakarta, 28 November 2015. From the night of the wedding reception:
“Good evening to all family and friends,
I want to start off by thanking Jenni and Timmy for letting me take part on their special day. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Angelique and Jenni is my best friend. Jen, I can’t stop saying this but you look absolutely stunning today!
I have known Jenni for 13 years now. I’ve had the opportunity to watch Jenni blossomed from the slow, cuek, galak girl, to this wonderful woman that stands before us today. She is the sweet, caring best friend that you always have around. She is humble, a good listener, and she has a heart of gold.
Jen, I could spend the whole night talking about you, but let's make it short! To walk through life together with you has been amazing. I remember how we always have a good heart-to-heart talk. It's always fun spending time with you. You have been such a blessing to me, you're like that one sister I never had. Tim, now to you..... I can’t thank you enough for making Jenni the happiest girl. The way you treat her, spoil her, and make her laugh. Your goofiness, your compassion, your loyalty and your love for her assured me that Jenni would always have you by her side. You are everything and more that I could ever hoped for Jenni. I know you will take good care of her 'til she is old and wrinkly!
I have witnessed how their relationship has matured throughout the time. The commitment and the persistence that they have for their relationship are what keep them going. Jen, Tim.. Earlier today you made a promise to each other, to always be there for each other, to have and to hold.. This next chapter of your life might not be easy, but I know that the strong foundation that you have built for 7 years upon trust for each other and love for each other, will bring you through.
I’m gonna miss you when you go back to the States, but I know that you are just a facetime away! We have always conquered this LDR relationship!
To close my speech today, John Lennon once said, “A dream you dream alone is a dream. A dream you dream together, that is reality.” … And that reality starts now.
Congratulations once again to the happiest couple, Mr. & Mrs. Timothy Juwono!”

For those of you who follow me on instagram, you probably figured by now that my sister finally tied the knot about two weeks ago. I'll be sharing more of the engagements pictures that I've taken for the couple on this blog. And since we had a couple of sessions, I'm going to break the post in a couple of parts.
For now, here are the shots from our summer session in San Francisco. Stay tuned for the next part! ;)
