upon the wings of angels

the ambiance inside the ballroom during Jovian and Nina's second reception reflected the muted resonance outside.  but there was definitely romance in the air with the addition of lush gatherings of white phalaenopsis orchids as table centerpieces and butterflies that alighted on the apple blossoms and wisterias.  the gebogan centerpieces seemed content with their previous night's enchantments and observed the day's proceedings in quiet contemplation.   the splendid pelamin with the balinese door panels was replaced by a dramatic pelamin with outstretched wings that embraced the couple during their bersanding ceremony.  Jovian certainly had angelic thoughts when he envisioned its design, it seemed.  our angels had more earthly thoughts when they lavished the pelamin with flowers and more flowers.  the floor was less dense with fewer tables.  more space was afforded to the dance floor below the raining wisterias which sprouted graceful appendages that reached out to shade the newlyweds as they danced away at the end of the event.  we wish the best for Jovian and Nina, and may Allah bless their romance forever and ever.
