What first caught my eye in Anne and Erwan’s beautiful wedding video by Jason Magbanua were not the lush rolling hills of New Zealand, or the bunch of good looking people that surrounded the happy couple. It was a sign shown a little past 1:00 mark that said: “Welcome to Middle Earth.”
If you know of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit (books or movies), this reference wouldn’t be lost on you and it somehow leaves us with a feeling that Anne and Erwan are just about to start on the greatest adventure of their lives.
Anne did say it in her wedding vow, but even without it, it’s very easy to see why that is so –love and marriage is a lifelong quest that the husband and wife promise to embark on together. And while there were no orcs, hobbits, elves, or wandering lost kings in the video, here are four things that prove that saying (or singing!) “I Do” in front of God can be the biggest adventure of anyone’s life.
Miko and Lea have been together for a little over two years and now they are about to walk down the aisle. But before anything else, it’s good to have something to remember prior to this end goal. Prepping for the wedding can be stressful but that doesn’t mean that you can’t insert a lot of enjoyable moments like having a safari-themed prenup shoot with The Daydreamer Studios.
Having met through a dating app, Miko and Lea wasted no time to get acquainted with each other. And even in short span of time, they discovered how they complement each other.
“We wanted to have more photos of us. We didn’t have long years as boyfriend and girlfriend and so we want to have beautiful photos captured together.”
One of the sweetest romance we know nowadays can be heard from a line of a song : “Im lucky that I’m inlove with my bestfriend..” Jeric and Hannah found just that in their friendship turned to love.
“We had been friends for four years before we got together.. “
Some of the perks when love starts from friendship are being able to just be yourself and enjoy what you truly love doing. Fate let Jeric and Hannah find each other and be in each other’s company to do just that.
“We lived life just as it is — together. And we love it that way. We walked the city hand in hand and that was enough for us.”
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.”
Dreaming of a happy ever after with your friend whom you’ve known for a long time? It is possible. Often times it is said that one of the best kinds of love is the one that starts with friendship. What could be better than two people who have already cemented their commitment and devotion to each other? Some say it’s still better to remain just friends. Yet some say marrying your best friend is one of the best things to happen.
And that’s how it happened for Mat and Aki. Friends since freshmen year during their college days, their encounter was not filled with butterflies, rainbows, and fireworks. Yet even with the absence of these details, it was memorable. They got to know each other in the simplest yet beautiful way which is through friendship.
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.
Brought together through social media, this couple found love unexpectedly until they found themselves vowing to love & cherish each other at a beautiful San Sebastian Wedding.
Our featured couple, Kurt & Alinah’s, story is not one about strangers meeting through facebook. Despite their close proximity to each other being schoolmates in since elementary and living only three blocks away from each other, it took a facebook interaction in their adulthood to take notice of each other’s existence and pave the way for their love story to unfold.
Steph and Eugene met when they were still healing from their previous relationships. Because of their heartbreaks, they almost gave up in believing that “happy ever after” exists. But fate had another plan.
This is how this modern fairytale prenup was born. Its a story about two ordinary people who dreamt about making their own fairytales come true. But instead of searching for their prince and princess, they made the effort to be the “right person” for each other.
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.
