Candy and Chat were blockmates at San Beda College of Law. They were close friends, but Candy already had a secret crush on Chat. Eventually, they realized how they felt for each other, and the two's friendship took a romantic turn. They ended up becoming a couple.
After seven years of being with Candy, Chat planned an elaborate proposal. Chat had a charity event with a foundation he supported, and he asked Candy to invite her family and friends to the film showing at Mogwai, Cubao X.
The fundraiser featured a screening of Some Kind of Wonderful. As the movie ended, the credits were cut. Instead, Chat's audio-visual presentation for Candy played. Before she knew it, Chat proposed to her in front of everyone.
Candy and Chat both love the '60s and ska, and so they used those elements as inspiration for their wedding. The couple matched the spunky theme with a palette featuring red, black, and white.
The couple made it a point to make their wedding details different. For the reception, the bride requested that non-floral décor be used. The reception space featured a large marquee, framed photos, candles, and other non-traditional elements. Performances by Jeepney Joyride and Tanya Markova kept the celebration lively.
The bride admits that there were some challenges as they prepared for the wedding. "I wish someone informed us early that we have to book the venue and church together. We ended up changing the date we initially picked for our wedding as we cannot secure a good venue for our reception that is near the church we chose," she says. Still, the couple was undaunted, and enjoyed the process. "Have fun in planning. Make it a bonding moment with your fiancé or fiancée. Both must always agree on the details of the plan--compromise if you must," she adds.
