Bambi and Biboy had an intimate destination wedding, which was laced with pieces that exude a homey ambiance, in Tagaytay. Quirky household items in earth tones, sea green, and coral created an inviting ambiance at the celebration.
The couple's simple wedding was fueled with a laid back energy that represents their personalities.
Social networks have paved way for easy interaction between people over the years. Bambi and Biboy's love story started with the site Multiply, where Biboy saw Bambi for the first time. After adding each other as contacts, the two exchanged text messages and started going out on dates.
Their first date was one for the books. Instead of going out on a romantic candlelit dinner or having intimate conversations at a coffee shop, the two went to Hooters at Mall of Asia. Bambi shares, "We would always look back at that first meeting, at Hooters no less. It was a funny way to go on a first date, and it would always reflect the kind of relationship that we have--very casual, and very candid, light and very us."
After dating for several years, Biboy finally got down on one knee to pop the question one Christmas. "Shortly before the clock struck 12, he pulled me inside one of the rooms and gave me a gift. When I opened it, I found the heirloom ring meant for our engagement. We hugged, and then when we came out to the dining table to eat, his mom just noticed the ring, and we were all just happy," shares Bambi.
Bambi and Biboy exchanged vows in Silang, Cavite in an intimate and solemn ceremony. The occasion was laced with décor in coral, sea green, and earth tones. The bride shares, "Kar of K By Cunanan put together things that you would normally see at home, like roses, books on the table, and ceramic kettles for vases." According to Bambi, the laid-back feel of the celebration greatly reflected their personalities and relationship status.
Since Bambi and Biboy both admit that they don't really know how to put together a wedding, they let their stylist and coordinator take the lead, but they provided the framework for the team. They also incorporated customized items to add their personal touch to the event.
The couple learned a lot of things as they prepared for their big day. Bambi shares, "They say that wedding preparations will already give you a preview of the marriage, and it's quite true. You will learn to compromise, to be patient, to be creative, and to be submissive. Never sweat the small stuff for there will always be bigger problems to deal with, and wedding preparations should not be one of them. Know what you want, visualize your wedding with your partner, and everything will go smoothly."
