From Bride Belle: “Our wedding was definitely our dream wedding and so much more. It took us almost a year to plan it. We wanted an all-white classic theme at first, but adding maroon, old rose & gold color just adds a modern, glamorous twist to it. We thought of incorporating these colors in every bit of details and having the best wedding suppliers, you expect nothing but brilliant execution. We immediately fell in love with everything!”
First off, how did you two meet? “Though we attended the same medical school, we never knew each other until we got to work in the same private hospital in Manila and that’s where it all started.”
What kind of emotions did you (or your husband) feel throughout the day?
Bride Belle: “I felt serene the entire day. Favorite moment was when the cathedral doors opened, all I saw was my husband at the end of the altar, dashing in his suit, shedding some happy tears. It was so heartwarming.”
Groom Mark: “I was nervous at first but when the doors opened, I couldn’t hold back my tears. I saw my beautiful wife. I was definitely happy.”
Advice for future brides? “Do everything with your partner. You will be surprised on how easily you can plan your wedding especially when you know each other’s likes and dislikes. Pick the best wedding vendors and trust them. In this way, it will be a lot more fun and easier knowing you get to work with people who excels in their field and who simply executes everything so effortlessly. On your wedding day, just enjoy and have fun. Always remember that not all weddings are perfect, but all weddings are unique in their own way.”
