I’m Married!!

I’m actually on vacation now, so I’m just popping in quickly to announce that after exactly 11 months from Ken’s proposal (on June 25, 2013), we’re finally married!!! :D

Ken Soh and Celestine Chua, married

Us with our marriage certificate; that’s my parents on the right and Ken’s on the left! :)

Our wedding took place at Shangri-La hotel (the one at 22 Orange Grove), on May 25, 2014, at 7pm. It was witnessed by 100 handpicked guests, people we consider as among the 100 most important people in our life.

This is the montage of Ken and my love story (created by yours truly! :) ), as played during our wedding that day:

Thank you everyone for your well wishes; will be sharing photos, videos, and updates of the actual-day event soon, when our videographers and photographers send them over! :) (Our photo studio says it’ll take a few weeks up to a month for them to edit and send over.) In the meantime, we will be enjoying our honeymoon in Bali — updates will resume a week later, after I get back! :D

In the meantime, read:

    You are both beautiful and although thousands of kilometers away I share in your happiness. Life is a journey, of course. I’ve enjoyed the way I have traveled with you Celes and I look forward to the future with the new Celes + Ken.

    • http://personalexcellence.co/ Celestine Chua

      Thank you John — I love the way you’ve phrased it! I look forward to embarking in my new phase of life with Ken and continuing to build PE as Celes (with support of Ken)! :)

    Congrats, Celes and Ken! I’ve been thinking about this because I knew your wedding would be sometime around now, so I’m glad to see a quick post if just to confirm it! I wish you both the best, it makes me genuinely happy to know you two have found each other! =)

    • http://personalexcellence.co/ Celestine Chua

      Thank you Calae!! :D Not sure if you’re on my Facebook page — more of my personal updates are posted there. I avoid posting too many personal posts here since I still want to make PE a content-driven blog, so I only make the occasional big announcements (like me getting engaged or married) but leave all the rest to my Facebook.

  • Jessica Aimee Smith

    You inspire me so much, Celes. I feel like your story through life is much like my own, and your and Ken’s story has given me hope that one day I will find someone as perfect for me as you are for each other. Admittedly I have a long way to go in order to be happy with myself as I am, but I’m taking the steps to achieving that goal. Maybe one day it won’t feel like such a challenge.

    Congrats to both of you and all the best for your future together!

    • http://personalexcellence.co/ Celestine Chua

      Dearest Jessica, you’re such a sweetie! I definitely believe that you will find someone for you someday, and I totally agree that it starts with loving yourself first. Have you read my article on how it’s okay to be single and how to attract authentic love? If not, take a read — the tips have been very helpful for me in my own personal journey. I’m considering writing a new series on achieivng self-love, but I’ve some other pieces in the pipeline that I need to finish first.

    Congrats Celes! Enjoy your honeymoon!

    • http://personalexcellence.co/ Celestine Chua

      Thank you Ryan! :D I’m back now!

    Thanks Lea! :D

  • Matt Leyva

    Congratulations to both of you! I was waiting for a big update post to say congrats but maybe you decided to forgo that. I just wanted to say I’m very happy for you and wish you both all the best.

    • http://personalexcellence.co/ Celestine Chua

      Hi Matt, I’m glad you decided to forgo that as the “big update” post is probably going to take a while, given that the local photo studios tend to take a while before handing their clients the photos and video footage taken from the actual day. (If you’re lucky it’s a month; my friend’s studio gave her a two month lead time!) Plus the fact that it’ll take some time for me to put together the material myself, recount the day and write the post (likely a series), I think it’ll be at least 1-2 months before my big wedding update can be posted.

      Thanks so much for your well wishes! I’m having a blast reading your healthy living updates at PE Forums. :D

  • Claire R

    I am very happy for you and Ken. May you have a full and blessed life together

      Thank you so much Claire! :)
