Aiza and JM met as college students, when their friends from Assumption College and Ateneo de Manila University arranged a group meet-up. The two instantly connected, but at that time, Aiza was still attached to someone else, and so she and JM were nothing more than friends.
However, when Aiza became single, she and JM eventually became closer. After having a mutual understanding for over a year, JM asked if he could formally court Aiza. Love blossomed--and they finally became an official couple three months after.
On the eve of their seventh anniversary, JM prepared a special surprise for Aiza. The two parted after having dinner together, and when Aiza got home, she found Post-It notes with references to their previous anniversaries. When she entered her room, she found a bouquet of roses, and a card with a CD inside. The CD contained a photomontage of their years together as Snow Patrol's Just Say Yes played in the background.
Aiza called JM up, and she found out that the surprise wasn't over yet. Upon going to the gate to greet him, she saw attached to his car a banner that read, "Will you marry me?" Aiza calmed herself down, and finally replied with "Oo naman."
Aiza and JM incorporated traditional and modern details into their big day in order to represent their personalities well. They chose a bold palette consisting of black, violet, black, and white, and also cascaded the damask print into various wedding elements.
To further personalize their special affair, Aiza took on several DIY projects--among those were their monogram, invitations, e-vites, and thank-you cards. The couple's families also helped them finish the special crafts.
While they planned their wedding for over a year, Aiza shares that they still found the preparation time short. She says, "It's never too early to start planning your wedding. I suggest that once the engagement is sealed, start with the planning right away." Going online also helped her with her big day. "Subscribe to BridalBook.ph! BridalBook.ph really helped me a lot in the preparations with all the weddings and prenuptial pictorials the website features," she adds.
