Pearlyn & KC | It's Adventure Time!


Pearlyn & KC | It's Adventure Time!


The wedding day itself holds true to the saying of "sometimes not knowing is bliss". We had so many surprises and amazing moments throughout the day, and it's hard to pinpoint our favourite. When it comes to the dinner reception, KC and I were brought away separately to prepare for the grand march in, changing into outfits which we only knew of on the day itself...

This time round, KC was surprised (which in turn surprised me too) with a fancy suit- a soft blue suit, with contrasting hand- painted details. His "surprise suit" was also revealed to him just moments before the march in! The fancy bold prints, together with matching shoes (both hand painted by Amanda!), along with the combination of the colours itself was such a bold statement! His verdict on his surprise suit? Those wide grin says it all :D

First look... for the bride.
I remember when I first set my eyes on KC and his painted suit, I was so amazed by the colours and the details on the suit (partly because one look I know how much work went into it :P), and looking him at the same time, I felt so proud of this man in front of me, I guessed for no apparent reason...

Coming together...

I've tried to envision the kind of wedding I want. The theme, the look, the feel, the dress... I even go to the extend of having separate (secret!) Pinterest boards for the wedding. But somehow or rather, nothing much seems to appeal to me in the most direct form, and everything (always) draws back to the practicality of the space, and the resources we are working with.

After striking out many options, and with the help of Amanda herself, we managed to nail down the theme for the wedding- A tropical forest theme. Think lush greeneries, foilage, with a hint of vibrant blooms! Working with HellofromFlour, and with the support of Conrad Centennial Singapore, we brought an outdoor theme into the grand ballroom of Conrad.

A walk to remember

When the door opened for the first march- in, it was also the first time we set our eyes on the full decoration of the ballroom. Throughout the preparations, we left it to the hands of Amanda, with Larry and Jophia (HellofromFlour) to conceptualise and plan the entire set up.

Everything turned out cosy, lush, yet glamorous- exactly like how I've envisioned. Engulfed by the cheers of our beloved families and friends, we walked down the aisle as Mr and Mrs, hearts tingling with warmth.

I absolutely loved the double silhouette of the full gown, where the front revealed a form fitted mermaid skirt, and the overlay train attached from my waist not accentuated my waistline (which is great for every ladies!), it also made me felt ultra glamorous on the wedding day!


"Where did all these colours come about!"

The evening gown holds another surprise for me that night.

While I remember Amanda telling me she had problem deciding on the colour of the evening gown for me, as there is no ONE colour that speaks of me... And when I said "I trust you", I honestly left her without a lead...

So when I see the yellow and blush rose gown hanging on the frame, first thought was "Oh my God where did all these colours come about!"
I loved colours, but wasn't sure how KC will respond to it. But when he walked in, the look on his face gave me the assurance that he loved it, and I looked beautiful.

Love itself is the greatest adventure.
The wedding; a ride on the roller coaster.
WD_20171221_3955-0625 copy.jpg
You take on the ride with excitement, at some point your emotion hits high, but most of the time you're anticipating the next adrenaline. You may not remember every single moment you hit high, take in every scene that comes before you...but at the end of it all, you remember the excitement and the joy, and you remember who took the ride with you.



Through the wedding, KC and I are reminded of the people who loved us, and we count our blessings for all the love that has been showered so dearly upon us. While the wedding holds many element of surprises along the way, we both know that deep down it is a day of celebration of us- how far we've come, and where we are today.
To the people who love us and whom we love, from the bottom of our hearts - thank you.

Pearlyn & KC | The Wedding Day


Pearlyn & KC | The Wedding Day


Hello! My name is Pearlyn
I'm a designer at Amanda Lee Weddings, and newly minted Mrs Chia.

WD_20171221_0633-0066 RESIZED.jpg

I spent the past 8 years designing dresses for beautiful brides-to-be at Amanda Lee Weddings, while dating my now husband, KC. We went out for 6 years before I said "Yes"... and 2 years on, we pledged our love to each other on 21st December 2017. 

While this entry is all about celebrating our marriage, it is also a little journey of how I felt on the day- as a bride. Being involved in the wedding scene for some years, most people would have thought I should have seen it all, and know exactly what I want for myself. Truth to be told, now that the tables have turned, it became extremely difficult for me to narrow down to that one dress. As bizarre as it sounds, sometimes I do believe that the best choice is the only choice.

Hence, with a leap of faith, and along with Amanda, I did something that I believe has never been done for any brides ever...

We decided to have a first look for the bride. Yes, on the wedding day itself.

First looks are usually held as a pleasant surprise for the groom, where he sees the bride in the dress for the first time on the day. Well in my case, I got my version of the first look on the day itself. It was a crazy idea I know! But I agreed to go with this idea from Amanda in a heartbeat because  1. I feel like she (Amanda) knows me better than myself.  2.Faith  3.YOLO!


So here goes...


21st December 2017

Our day started slow in the afternoon, and the wedding excitement really builds up when family and friends start to arrive. 


MY first look

WD_20171221_0338-0036 copy.jpg

For those who wonder, I was blind folded and wore mittens throughout my fitting sessions (no seeing or even feeling the fabric was allowed!). When it was time for the reveal of the dress, my family and friends were all crowded around, everyone was so excited for me!  
Amanda stepped into the dressing room to help me get into the gown with my eyes closed. I was brought to the mirror, with my eyes still shut. Hearing the "ohhs" and "ahhs" echoing as I stepped out was exciting, yet nerve wrecking, and queasy all at once. I told myself to take in deep breaths, so many times that I lost count. 

WD_20171221_0363-0038 copy.jpg
"A myriad of butterflies felt like they were bursting out of me. 
WD_20171221_0420-0043 copy.jpg
WD_20171221_0477-0052 copy.jpg
" I look like a bride"

That was my first line out.

It took me a brief moment to quickly set aside that the "bride" in the reflection is me. The most incredible feeling hits you at that moment where you see yourself in a white gown specially designed for you. Not just another dress. it's a dress that carries love, hope, and blessings for you. The dream of one day marrying a man that will take you as his bride, to love and cherish you, and guard you with all his heart.

And today was the day.

Some of you who tuned in to our "live" feed may recall how I cried for so so long... It was just a long moment of disbelief and joy... it was my bridal moment (little snippets still on @amandaleeweddings IG highlights in case you missed it! #prettyandthebeng). In case you wonder, I LOVE my dress. I love it from the moment I put it on without having to look at it. I love the fact that it's simple but intricate, elegant yet unique, I love the asymmetrical detailing, and most of it, it is definitely the silhouette that I can see myself in.

THE first look

Those who know KC well enough will know that he is a man of few words with big heart. He is also tough, but sentimental towards the people he loves.
During the first look, I tasked my niece the important role of handling him a letter expressing my love, and the little reasons that made me realise he is the one for me.

My parents are a pair of typical Asian parents. They spoke little of affection, but loved my sisters and I with all their hearts. 

WD_20171221_1186-0163 copy.jpg

My Mum is one of the gentlest soul I know. She is kind, she is warm, and she is a giver. I designed for her an elegant opera mauve dress in silk to match her affable personality. She wore it with so much pride that day, and I could see from her eyes how proud she was of me.

With my new family.
KC's family never fail to make me feel like one of them since day one. Through our dating days till now, his sister and parents have been so accepting, easy- going, and loved me like a daughter. My mother-in-law is one joyous lady, bold in a very subtle way. After several discussions, I designed for her a short navy dress with lace appliqué that is comfortable and befitting for the occasion. 


The one whom my soul loves

My tea ceremony dress was a clever addition to my existing white gown. Sleeve was added to enhance the overall design, which built up the romantic avant-garde look and feel.
