How many of us can really say that our love story is, quite literally, a plot for a soap opera? Well, this couple from our Subic Bay Wedding feature, Gerwin & Joy, can raise their hands up high on this one.
“Our love story is non-traditional. It’s close to the Anton-Andeng love story”.
In case you are not famliar, ‘A Love To Last’ is the soap opera that brought Ian Veneracion’s dreamboy status back to the radar of many women. Here, he plays Anton who falls for Andeng, played by the beauteous Bea Alonzo.The situation that Gerwin & Joy were in at the time of their meeting was very similar to that of Anton & Andeng’s. As they met & fell in love, there was a concern of closing with finality a previous relationship that has long ended. Once they knew that all was clear for them to take the leap, they started planning on the big day that will set them to live a life decided to be bound together in a love to last.

‘And they lived happily ever after’. Though it’s a line from a fairy tale, isn’t this what we all wish for as we leap into this next chapter of life called marriage? We may find ourselves on our way to this happy ending, specially when we feel that we’ve found “the one who makes me happy”. Not to burst anyone’s bubble, but just for a bit of a reality check, it’s likely that there may be times when that one person will make you unhappy too. But fret not, because there is such a thing as finding joy in marriage.
So, how do we go about finding joy in marriage? We asked for tips from happy couple Ninay and JQ Quimpang. Ninay’s an HR practicioner while JQ is an events host and inspirational speaker.

In a way, Benedict & Jette have immortalized theirs not just for themselves but for their families in choosing to have their engagement session in Doha, Qatar where the couple is currently based.
“The venue that we chose are few of the tourists spots around Doha, Qatar. Since we reside in Qatar for a few years now, we want to focus on the location that we enjoy as a couple whenever we get our free time and also show our friends and family in the Philippines on what Qatar has to offer.”
Here’s a lovely Turquoise themed wedding of a couple whose love story was borne out of an office romance.
There’s also a cute back story to their first meeting, which seems to be a prelude to Krystel carrying the keys to Ryan’s heart. At that time, it was an ID badge that helped Ryan have access to get around their office building.
“It all started in year 2010. We were both new to the company, I started January of 2010, while Ryan started May of the same year. We were both IT engineers, Desktop Support Engineer back then, and part of our daily task was to handle end user requests, like software installation, computer login issue, etc. I was assigned to accompany him since his ID badge was not yet activated and he needs to transfer to a different floor. As I needed to do my daily tasks and perform floor to floor support, I had to leave Ryan first since he also has a different task assigned by our team lead, which was located at 6th floor. By lunch time, I was still occupied by the end users’ requests and totally forgot about Ryan being left alone at 6th floor (haha!). Our team lead already called him at his mobile phone however, he cannot leave 6th floor since I haven’t returned to fetch him. Then our team lead finally called me, reminded me that I should fetch Ryan. That’s the time that I remembered that I left him there. When we went back to our workstation, we are all laughing about what happened.”
What makes weddings special? Is it the fancy and lavish wedding reception? The long-trailed wedding gowns? Or the big, sparkly diamond wedding rings? This intimate Batanes renewal of vows by Jody and Dicky reminds us all of what truly makes weddings special.
Usually, couples would invite people who have witnessed their love story as their wedding guests. But Jody & Dicky wanted to do things differently for their wedding vow renewal.
It’s our 15th wedding anniversary. It’s very special because it’s intimate. In fact, it was just my husband and I declaring our vows again. It doesn’t have to be with a big crowd. It is enough for just the two of us with the presence of a Catholic priest to bless our married life.
