Royal Indies Wedding.
I borrowed the term coined by mas Tirta, who used it with a hashtag in his twitter.
And time is indeed a-flying!
It was a happy day to Kupil (a.k.a. Luthfi), the youngest of three brothers, who got married that sunny Sunday.
All of his dearest friends came to congratulate the happy couple, including his bandmates and all the cisitu asylum (both legal and illegal) tennants.
I was late for the ceremony, arriving right after they had vowed to each other. But then I had a few hours catching up with the Cisitu Asylum-ers, including Dhito the videographer, whom I hadn’t met for four long years.
Fitrah brought his instant camera , and we all had our photos taken with the camera
At 11 the reception started and Dynna was already in position, near a big tray of lasagna and Wellington beef. I had quite a lot of food that day, having lasagna, spaghetti, wellington beef, pofertjes, and ice cream. *yum yum!*

The Bystanderians from Jaksa headquarters arrived on midday and we had a photo with the newlyweds, but unfortunately not from our cameras, so we have to wait until Kupil uploads it somewhere someday. In the mean time, here are some of our photos there..

The wedding singers were the boys from The Trees & The Wild.
Around quarter to one, friends from Elemental Gaze (Fuad, Bilan, Fitrah, and his brother Myrdal) took over the small stage and sang Unperfect Sky (Without Your Smile) acoustically, followed by Adam Sandler’s “Grow Old With You”. The last song was Alphaville’s “Forever Young”, sang by a whole big group of choir (including me).

Here’s a video (click the hyperlink) of us singing “Forever Young”. I first have to warn you to turn down the volume to really really low to avoid shock by our out-of-tune vocals.
Anyway, a really nice, noticeable thing seen at the wedding was this (sent by Arya “be-el”):
Myrdal btw, made a really really nice video of us giving our warmest wishes to the newlyweds.
