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.
It is every little girl’s dream to have a classic romantic wedding. They dream of a prince dressed up in his white tunic waiting for his princess donning her beautiful long white wedding gown. With a touch of marsala, old rose & blush with gold accent, Jay & Maan’s wedding looked like a page out of a romantic fairytale.
We can also say the same about this couple’s love story. As Maan shared with us,
“All along alam ko na sya na yung “the one” ko. Kahit topakin ako at paranoid I had that feeling na sya na talaga. Right from the day na sa loob ng chapel nya ako tinanong kung pwede syang manligaw.
Sya yung hiniling ko kay Lord. Yung araw-araw akong liligawan, pipilitin akong intindhin kahit unreasonable na ako , malaki ang takot sa Diyos, matinding magmahal sa pamilya nya at mahal din ng sobra ang pamilya ko.”
