Cheryl Yeoh and Jason Sew are the couple for whom #weddinggoals would not be out of place on their wedding pictures.

Not many brides would go through the trouble of having a hand in the planning and production of their own wedding, preferring to leave it to a professional planner, but not Cheryl Yeoh. The artsy bride and her husband even went as far as crafting wedding bands for each other!

The couple flew to LA twice for two five-hour dance bootcamps and Cheryl practiced through the pain.

All their effort culminated in a first dance that brought tears of joy to many during their Bali and KL ceremonies.

The bridal couple showed their appreciation with thoughtful handwritten notes to each of their 108 guests for their Bali wedding, which came with a stylish and practical gift of leather luggage tags.  Plenty of effort went into the wedding invitations, itself.

In fact, each guest had a piece of Cheryl's blush tulle wedding gown on their very own tables: As Cheryl's gown was a little too long, she had it altered and the extra tulle was used to tie the cutlery for each guest. Talk about putting your heart into art!

From the eternity circle wedding arch design, two hand-painted sets of wooden wedding cake toppers which coordinated with their bridal outfits, to their passionate first dance and Unity Drink idea , you probably couldn't find a more involved and creative bride.
