When you live far from your family, you want them to know how you’re doing, even share about your romantic escapades, specially if it’s one that will lead to you walking down the aisle.
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.”
Most of us don’t dare dream of having a double prenup shoot. But to have an engagement session in Dubai AND Tagaytay, two famous cities separated by vast lands and seas—now that’s something you don’t hear often.
Double prenups seem like something only celebrities can aspire for—what with the practicalities of building a home after your wedding looming over your shoulder. Kenneth and Remalyn, who are both based in Dubai, had set their minds on doing just one in the Philippines, where they were getting married and where all their suppliers were. They never dreamt they would be having their shoot done, not just in Tagaytay but also in Dubai, at the place where their love story began! The unplanned engagement session in Dubai was a sweet surprise that fate, as well as the Freshminds Photography team, had conjured for them. The couple were so grateful to their dream team’s generosity for this rare opportunity, a truly unforgettable Top Knotter moment.
All husbands-to-be should be willing to go the extra mile for their potential wives—and Kenneth was no exemption. But before preparing for his heartfelt yet simple cafe proposal, he first prepared himself to become the best version of himself and a worthy lifetime partner to Aren.
Kenneth and Aren were classmates at their high school in Batangas, nothing more. Although they did share a weird scenario during Physics wherein Aren asked Kenneth to hold an ice cube that wasn’t connected to their class experiment at all. You’d think this quirky moment would’ve led to some sparks. But it wasn’t until they became classmates again in college when they actually became close friends. And slowly, their friendship developed into a something that looked and felt a lot like love.
The wait is finally over for Max and Cristal. Watch that fateful moment take place in this tropical island wedding at Dos Palmas, bookended by lots of carefree partying.
If you’ve ever been to Metropolitan Manila, chances are you know what waiting is like and are getting tired of it pretty fast. There’s the spiraling line to board the MRT, the carmaggedon on EDSA and just about every other avenue in the city, even months-long waiting just to renew your passport. But waiting can be a good thing too–especially when it’s for something truly worth it, something you’ve prayed long and hard for. Some people believe that that moment when you’re about to quit is the time to keep going, the turning point before all things work out for good. That’s pretty much true for Max and Cristal too, who, after overcoming their disbelief, finally tied the knot at their tropical island wedding.
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.
For a laid-back couple like Jay and Kaye, it’s more about the personality than the drama. With the help of their photographers from Bob & Zab Photography, they came up with the perfect cozy indoor prenup at Antipolo Beehouse.
“We chose the venue because we were looking for a place that’s cozy, where we don’t have to be pretentious and we can just be ourselves.”
Aside from choosing the right venue, choosing the right outfit is key to getting the kind of vibe you want for your prenup. While they had different sets of outfits for the shoot, they were all well within the casual & cozy style. With coffee, pizza and lots of laughter, we can see how light and relaxed Jay and Kaye were.
