Crissie and Reg were batchmates up until high school, but it was only after they had graduated from college that they 'met'. Reg was already based in the United States then, but by fate, the two met again. "We were introduced at a gathering of common high school friends while he was in Manila for a visit. We eventually reconnected when I flew to California to attend a cousin's wedding," recalls Crissie.
The two constantly communicated online, and romance eventually blossomed. Crissie and Reg also traveled between the Philippines and the US to visit each other.
Reg would always spend his Christmas in Manila. On the couple's third year together, Reg decided to present Crissie with a special Christmas gift. He brought her to a rooftop restaurant, and as they settled down on their seats, Crissie heard humming that grew louder. Eventually, a choir emerged and serenaded her. "The next thing I knew, Reg was down on one knee with a small box in his hand," Crissie shares. After Reg had popped the question and Crissie had said "Yes," Reg led her to a function room, where her family and friends gathered to greet the newly engaged couple.
Crissie and Reg opted to have an elegant wedding with timeless details. To complement their classic theme, the couple chose silver and purple as their wedding colors.
While the couple's wedding was peppered with luxe elements, their wedding program was unfussy. "We didn't have games of any sort, but there was a lot of love expressed in all the speeches that were delivered by our families. Our partying days are over, our wedding fell on a Monday, and most of our guests had work or school the day after. Our program ended before 10 p.m.," shares Crissie. Guests who stayed were treated to drinks and fast food, which the couple had ordered to be delivered at the reception venue.
The couple found ways to make their wedding their own, and Crissie shares valuable tips for other couples. "Research, and read. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't be ashamed to realize and admit that you don't know what you want on the first meeting [with your suppliers]. Trust your suppliers, they know what would look best for you," she says.
