Maybe I was nervous, I didn’t know what to say after he popped the question. There was a short moment of silence. Then I said, “Have you asked the question?” – Brynda Tan
They burst out laughing! And of course, Aaron had to repeat it, “Will you marry me?”
When a marriage starts with a good hearty laugh like that, you JUST KNOW it’s going to be great all the way!
But I get ahead of myself so let’s rewind.
Brynda is a lawyer working in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia & Aaron works in an IT consultant in Melbourne, Australia. Their paths crossed when she went to Melbourne on a mission trip with her church members.
They stayed in touch when she got back to Malaysia. The more they talked, the more they realised how much they enjoyed each other’s company.
So, one beautiful day in December a couple years ago, Aaron sat Brynda down, whipped out his acoustic guitar, played & sang her a song he had composed for her (you heard right, ladies. A song he COMPOSED for her) & asked her to be his girlfriend.
Many moons later, he played and sang another song he had composed for her (“I wrote it…very early one morning”) but this time, he asked her to marry him….
Fast forward to this weekend … Brynda will walk down the aisle in her church, looking resplendent in her trumpet-cut, embroidered organza gown. She’ll say “I Do” before her God, her family & her friends and become the beautiful Mrs. Brynda Teh.
Our prayer for you two is that Brynda will always remain “gorgeous…tender-hearted” to Aaron, and that he will continue being “Godly, gentle, faithful …(there’s a lot more)” … for the rest of your lives together. Congratulations!!
(Below) Aaron & Brynda had dinner at Ferdinand’s, Magellan Sutera Resort, Kota Kinabalu, on the night he proposed. They wanted to return to the restaurant for this pre-wedding shoot. Very apt.
