My husband and I had been dating since we met our first year of college. We both were in engineering and had classes together, but didn't meet in class. My friend and neighbor was friends with his neighbor which is partially how we met. To make a long story short and sweet, nearly 5 years later at my parents 25th vow renewal celebration, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him in front of my entire extended family.
We got married on Aug 29, 2008.
We had a beautiful ceremony in a Presbyterian church though we integrated Filipino-Catholic traditions as it is part of my culture.
We had an awesome reception, every one of our guests truly enjoyed themselves and that's what mattered to me. All of the details we planned just added to the elegance and fun that we had experienced.
