From Kyoto, With Love -  Alyssa & Emrys

Alyssa Seow and Emrys Mok wedded in a traditional Shinto ceremony during winter at Kyoto’s Kifune-jinja Shrine.

We met in 2006 through mutual friends and got to know each other better online. We spent the last day of 2007 together for the New Year’s countdown, and Emrys asked me to be his girlfriend as fireworks filled the sky.

Just like when he asked me to be his girlfriend, he proposed on Jan 1. He booked two hotel rooms and had my friend pretend she had won a night’s stay at one of them. While I was hanging out with my friends, Emrys was busy setting up the other suite with candles and roses! Then, to my complete surprise, my friends led me to the proposal suite. Once again, we had a view of the fireworks.
