When Reggie decided to pop the question to Cleo, he had a few tricks up his sleeve to make the proposal truly memorable. It was Cleo's 30th birthday, but unlike in most celebrations where Reggie would splurge on heartwarming greeting cards and gifts for Cleo, Reggie simply gave her 30 pieces of Ferrero Rocher chocolates in a plastic bag.
Disappointed, Cleo shed some tears thinking that the chocolates weren't even her favorite and weren't even packaged nicely. But little did Cleo know that Reggie had another gift--an engagement ring. With this, Cleo's tears continued to flow, but this time, they were all out of joy and love.
Cleo and Reggie made their wedding an avenue for their loved ones to feel how much they love each other. "We wanted a spirit-filled wedding to match what we feel inside. We wanted heaven [as] theme because that is [how] we feel for each other and we hope that our guests felt it too," shares the couple.
With their chosen theme, the couple marked their big day with warm and refreshing details. "The ceremony at the church was very solemn and personal. For the reception, it was casual in the sense that it was not too formal. We just wanted everybody to enjoy, laugh and to celebrate with us," recalls the couple.
While Cleo and Reggie were hands-on with the preparations, their loved ones' willingness to help allowed the couple to realize their dream wedding. The couple had no difficulty making their big day a successful and memorable event. The bride shares a tip for other couples planning their wedding: "Make sure not to starve your guests, especially while they are waiting for you at the start [of the reception]. Usually, guests remember weddings where they starved the most or where the food is great. Make sure they remember yours for the latter."
