An in­ti­mate gath­er­ing of fam­ily and close friends, the wed­ding of Ti­mothy Haught and Emmie Kaur proves that love knows no bor­ders

It was back in 2005 when Ti­mothy Haught from Hawaii and Emmie Kaur from Ipoh, met through a mu­tual friend for happy hours in the cosy venue of Chi­noz On the Park in KLCC. It’s safe to say that the rest was his­tory as eight years down the line the dash­ing man got down on his knee on De­cem­ber 12, 2012 and pro­posed to Emmie in Or­chids Restau­rant at Heleku­lani Ho­tel in Waikiki, Honolulu. “It was dur­ing a pri­vate beach lunch. He had hid­den the ring in the chain he was wear­ing. He took it off, got down on one knee with a Tif­fany di­a­mond ring and asked if I would give him the hon­our of mar­ry­ing him and I replied yes a hun­dred times!” re­calls Emmie. She fur­ther adds, “Af­ter cham­pagne, as we were walk­ing out to pick up our car at the

lobby, I saw my par­ents pa­tiently wait­ing there. Tim se­cretly flew them all the way from Malaysia to give me a sur­prise. We all then took a limou­sine for the ‘af­ter pro­posal sun­set party’ on a lux­ury sail boat along the Pacific Ocean over­look­ing Honolulu and Di­a­mond Head, where we had food and wine while sail­ing with a small group of friends who also joined us. We ended the evening at another exclusive Waikiki beach restau­rant where more guests joined us in a pri­vate room for co­pi­ous amounts of cel­e­bra­tory cham­pagne, wine and fresh seafood.”

The ro­man­tic pro­posal was fol­lowed with two flaw­less wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions. The first took place on Septem­ber 9, 2013 in Hy­att Re­gency Guam’s Jewel By The Sea Chapel where the cou­ple said ‘I do’ in front of fam­ily and close friends.

“The rea­son we chose to have our wed­ding on that date is be­cause nine is Tim’s lucky num­ber and also for the Chi­nese, the num­ber nine means longevity. Both Tim and I liked that idea and that’s how we came up with that date,” Emmie ex­plains. The wed­ding night ended with a beau­ti­ful fire­works dis­play or­gan­ised by the groom and his friends. The sec­ond wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion took place in Kuala Lumpur at the Grand Hy­att. It was a mel­low and in­ti­mate oc­ca­sion. With dim lights, beau­ti­ful flow­ers and a live band that ser­e­naded the guests, the cou­ple pro­fessed their love for the sec­ond time to each other with equally as much en­thu­si­asm as be­fore, in front of

their es­teemed guests. Among the high­lights of that night, was a speech by the groom who wit­tily shared the de­tails about the cou­ple’s jour­ney to mar­riage. Emmie who was ini­tially wear­ing a gor­geous white gown changed into a fiery red en­sem­ble for a dance with her beloved hus­hand. Af­ter the cel­e­bra­tion was over, the cou­ple trav­elled to Italy for a re­lax­ing hol­i­day. At present, the cou­ple is still go­ing strong. They have ex­pressed their joy of liv­ing in their newly bought ocean­front home in Guam.

“Some­times we walk on the beach in front of our house dur­ing sun­set and in about 2oom we see the chapel we got mar­ried in. It is re­ally very nice and ev­ery time we walk pass the chapel it re­minds us of the very spe­cial time in our life,” Emmie says.
