Korean vs. Vintage Style | Missie Jo Bridal Makeup

2 sessions from RM1000 | 
Korean Concept Style
The effectiveness of Korean beauty techniques has made a mark all over the world due to their naturalistic polished results. To create the au-naturel flawless skin in the Korean trend, JoJo uses Airbrush technique to apply the HD invisible cover foundation that produces a smooth finish specially suited for Asian girls. Combined with very natural Korean style-inspired makeup methods, the bride will feel absolutely confident in her own skin. Finally choose a demure hairdo such as loose braid, low-bun, soft curly hair and matching hair accessories for a graceful and fresh appearance.

Vintage Style
How romantic is a vintage rustic wedding which has become the latest wedding design inclination in recent years. To create a completely perfect style for the theme, JoJo takes into consideration the gown, venue and essence of the wedding to enhance the natural beauty of the bride. Utilizing short veil and hat on the vintage classy hairstyle is a great formula for elegant looks. She brings back the glitz and glamor of yesteryears with styles such as messy bun, pin curls, finger waves, front bun, bright red lips.. it's timeless. The use of creme rouge with soft peach hue, popular in the 1950's creates very natural rosiness in your complexion.  

JoJo brings out the classic beauty in you using a combination of retro and modern Korean-inspired hair styling and makeup technique.

MUA | Jess Wong's Dress Up Room

2 sessions from RM800 | Brides nowadays disapprove heavy makeup in favor of more natural look. Finding the suitable makeup artist for the job can be fairly difficult. With superabundant and unattested options available in the market, you'd be worried you pick the wrong person. I have recently come across a MUA who is able to enhance the bride's eyes beautifully in a natural way. Jess Wong of Dress Up Room has been in the makeup and beauty line for 5 years and counting. With her experience she carefully matches the bridal styling according to her clients' personalities. Before the wedding day, Jess will communicate with the bride to find out the style she prefers, examine the gowns she is going to wear, then meticulously mix and match the accessories and bridal fashion.

great mua

Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Perdana) for your Pre-wedding Photoshoot

Besides parks such as the Bird, Butterfly, Deer Parks and Orchid Garden, taking pictures at the KL Lake Gardens requires no fee. I picked this location for the outdoor photoshoot by my BS, Redbliss. On the day we shot our pre-wedding photos, there were two other couples at the garden already busy posing at the instructions of their PG's. I couldn't help it but took a few looks at their dresses, the makeup and hair. I think some of you could relate to the feeling of being unsure if you've chosen the right gown or style, there could be other options which fit you better. And the the problem was I started comparing and thought "this dress was nice!", "I should have gotten my hair tied higher"...

Anyway at the park there were trees, lots of green, an artificial lake and some flowers. You can find a little shades (scarcely), we brought along an umbrella to help slow down the makeup smearing. When the PG (Wedding Acronym) was figuring out the shooting spot, I made use of every opportunity to hide under any shelter I could possibly find. I'm sure it's not as bad. It's just me, I cannot be over-exposed to the sun due to a skin condition I have. Overall, some shots were good however unfortunately most of them were just mediocre. My hubby didn't like the outdoor pictures, the indoor ones were more decent. I was partly to be blamed because of my preference of shaded spots. I am sure the images will turn out more amazing if the background were bright blue sky and clouds in open space.

Maju Palace 万宝城酒家 by the Oriental Group (Pork-free)

Established in July 2002, Maju Palace is one of the top Chinese restaurants in Klang Valley serving cuisine that is pork-free. The restaurant won the "Malaysia Tatler - Malaysia’s Best Restaurant Award" in 2005. Five private dining rooms of various sizes offer patrons a scenic view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. For the convenience of diners, the Maju Junction Mall (where Maju Palace is located) provides car park that is open 24 hours every day and there are 8 levels of parking with a total of 1,176 covered parking bays.

I went there while hunting for a wedding venue in the Klang Valley. The Maju Palace Chinese Restaurant (owned by the Oriental Group) is located at Jalan Sultan Ismail KL. To get to the restaurant, you have to drive up quite a number of levels along the rather narrow passage. I did not try the wedding food myself but according to reviews (which I have included below, together with their sources), the pork-free dishes are good. The other positive point is the pillar-less hall.

Wedding Dinner Venue: Maju Palace Restaurant @ Maju Junction Mall
(note: It is a pork-free restaurant. Well, interesting isn’t it that I had my wedding at a pork-free restaurant. The main reason is because of my Malay colleagues and I have grew closer with them for the past years. I want them to share my happiness on my wedding day. The food was great that night and my Chinese friends even praise the food).
Feb 2014
The food was awesome! I was there attending my friend's wedding. Love their course by course dish!

Mar 2013
Good food and no tiang. simple deco. MIL (Refer to Wedding Synonym) complaint about the carpark being too narrow and too many levels to reach the restuarant.. she felt very dizzy going up the carpark.

8 levels of indoor parking space, quite narrow
The Maju Junction Mall. It has 8 levels of indoor parking spaces. You have to go up quite a few levels to reach the Maju Palace, which could create some inconveniences.

PoseAndSnap and Print Photobooth

Freeze your moment in a snap with high quality printed photos and soft copies during your wedding event. It can also be an entertainment for your invited guests who would enjoy a light moment together posing for the camera, revealing their vain and fun personalities you may not be able to see normally. PoseAndSnap is equipped with digital imaging equipments, fun props, flexible set up, and friendly staff to make your event more enjoyable and memorable.

They need a very minimal space (approximately 7 by 10 feet) to set up the camera in tripod, computer and printer, and actual space for the photo shoot. You are advised to go to vendors who specialize in making backdrops as PoseAndSnap does not provide them.  The frame that they have can work well without the backdrop actually if you are not very particular. The photos will be edited and fitted in the customized and personalized template. Each person in the photo will get a copy. However for large group of more than six people, it is limited to a maximum of three prints.

The client will determine what time do they want the photo booth to open. Usually, hosts require the booth to open 1 - 1 1/2 hours before the dinner. This is to ensure that guests do not get bored while waiting. At the same time, the hosts can also join and have fun with their guests at the booth. Once the booth is opened, the service continuously run until the duration of the package bought. The photos will be arranged in the distribution corner where guests can collect their photographs.
