From the bride: “Dominik and I are no ordinary couple. Thus, an extraordinary wedding is what we aimed for. Something different, fun and remarkable. It took us one year to plan for our wedding. The challenge is that we are both not living in the country where the venue is and we only depend on our wedding coordinator (which worked on our wedding in an extraordinary way too!). We used all white on our ceremony pavilion to create a mood of serenity and a play of bright colors on our reception ballroom following the super hero themed tables to fill the place with excitement and bliss!”

First off, how did you meet? “We met in Singapore in May 2016. Engaged after 18 months. We had our Marriage Solemnization (Registration of Marriage) in Singapore on April 2018 then wedding celebration on December 29, 2018.” 

Describe your wedding! “What makes our wedding special is how intimate it was (well aside from everyone came in their superhero costume). We had very limited guests because we wanted to make sure that each person on our guest list has a personal connection with us, as a couple. Aside from that, we wanted our guests to be served and treated as VIP during the wedding. This, we think, made the wedding remarkable to each of them.”

What emotions did you feel throughout the day? “It was a whirlwind of emotions. All excitement fell off the cliff when my husband received a positive result on dengue fever during Christmas day, just four days before our wedding. For a split second in the hospital, I was already thinking if he could get discharged from the hospital before our wedding. That time, receiving the doctor’s consent to discharge my husband a day before the wedding, felt similar to when he proposed to me. Miraculous. Marvelous. Momentous. That was the fastest 24hours of my life! On the day of our wedding, I wanted everything to be fast forward so I can be with him right away. Seeing him standing at the altar looking so strong and handsome makes me want to just run and hug him!” 

Advice for future brides? “There’s only one advice I could give to all bride-to-be: make your wedding enjoyable for you and your husband-to-be. It’s both your day so think of what both of you would love to do. Don’t be afraid to explore! If you are both into dogs, let there be dogs, If you are both into arcade games, let there be arcade games on your wedding. If you are both into swimming, let the wedding take place in a swimming pool. Because, why not! It’s your day and a celebration of a lifetime with God’s most precious gift. Make it fun, personal and exciting for both of you.” 

Advice for brides after marriage? “Wedding planning can be very stressful. That’s why it has to be fun or else it will feel like a task that both of you needs to accomplish. Instead of focusing too much on the wedding (which realistically will not be perfect anyway) consider attending a Pre-Marriage Course. True as they say that after the wedding, that’s when reality kicks in and you must be both armed with wisdom and knowledge on how to handle things in marriage. We attended a Pre-Marriage Course in our church, and we both agree that was the best investment we did during our wedding preparation. We learned things that we would never have learned together such as issues on conflict resolution, communication, and finances. From this we also learned the secret to a long lasting marriage- to put God in the middle of the marriage. That itself would make the marriage unbreakable.”
