Early this week, the internet was abuzz with the story of a groom who couldn’t make it to his own reception, and the bride who stayed by his side ’til death did them part. Read on for real love and life musings from the story of Clark and Millie.
Clark and Millie first met in 2003. He was eighteen, and she, twenty-three. Over the course of the next year, they had a child and got married in civil rites but, before long, Clark had to leave for the US, only getting to visit his family every two years. Clark had long promised to Millie that they would get married in front of the altar. On July 12, 2017, he made sure that he would keep his word—even if it would be the last thing he did.
Pulling off a classy wedding is possible at any budget. Find out how, like Joyce and Nico, you too can achieve that perfect balance on your big day.
Classy. There’s no other way to describe it. Joyce and Nico’s understated and classy wedding in Tagaytay was chock-full of nothing but pure elegance, both in the wedding details as well as the intimate moments they shared with their family and friends.
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.”
Most brides will attest to this: one of the most important decisions during wedding planning involves choosing a bridal gown that is just perfect for you. We asked a few industry insiders for advice to help you (finally) decide on yours.
The perfect wedding dress sometimes seems more like a mythical creature when you’ve tried on twenty, thirty RTW gowns and find you still cannot make up your mind between that princess ball gown or the sexy lace mermaid dress. Some brides have worn two dresses on their big day—probably because they couldn’t decide on just one. But for those of us who can’t afford that kind of luxury (because we need to be practical adults every once in a while), choosing a bridal gown that will flatter our God-given features seems almost impossible.
