Post-Its Game Proposal: Story of Ricky and Cathy

Post-its Game Proposal

A cup of coffee can lead to many things: a productive day, energy to keep you going, and a lifetime of love. For Ricky and Cathy, sharing more than a hundred cups of coffee between them paved the way for a walk to the altar.

Ricky and Catherine met and fell in love in a coffee shop when they were college students. Over cups of coffee, they bonded on school work and slowly got to know each other better. The walls of the café stood witness to their blossoming relationship, and provided a venue for their doses of caffeine and talking about their dreams.

So it’s no surprise when, eight years later, Ricky chose a coffee shop to mark a milestone in their relationship. He picked Luna Specialty Coffee in BGC to gather their closest friends and ask Cathy to be his wife.

“She’s been my best friend, my travel buddy, and my girlfriend and we’ve grown together through a lot of adventures. The decision to propose came when I felt that all my goals and aspirations I had already involved her.”

Pampanga Mass Wedding: A Stylish, No-Cost Affair

Pampanga mass wedding

There’s an urban legend that states you need truckloads of cash to get married. But this Pampanga mass wedding proves you can get hitched in style with literally no cash at all.

For many of us, the road to forever is long and arduous, taking many unexpected twists and turns. We’re not just talking about all the bad dates you have to plow through (and pay for) to find Mr. or Ms. Right. Face it: once you’ve put a ring on that finger, expenses keep multiplying in the pursuit of  a dream wedding. But not everyone can afford to pay hundreds of thousands for one day—even a very important one. This reality was the seed of today’s feature: a Pampanga mass wedding organized by Events and Concepts by Voltaire Zalamea.

While we’re also part of a multi-billion peso industry, our priority at The Top Knotters is to celebrate #WeddingsWithHeart. Hence, we love featuring heartfelt occasions regardless of how many zeroes there are in the budget. This story, in particular, is something we feel really privileged to share with you today. Keep on reading to find out how dozens of wedding suppliers, all Top Knotters, joined forces (for free!) to give sixteen couples the Pampanga mass wedding they had never even dreamt of.
