Danike and Sam first met when Sam lined up to order takeout at the restaurant where Danike was working. After placing his order, Sam asked her, "How do you pronounce your name?" Delighted, Danike answered him and smiled while giving his change.
The short encounter was enough to spark Sam's interest. Being shy, he waited until Danike's shift was over and then asked one of her colleagues for her number. The two hit it off over the phone, but it would be another month before they went on their first date.
Four years later, the two took a trip to Phi Phi Island in Thailand. After enjoying breakfast in their romantic bungalow and lounging by the pool, Sam convinced Danike to go snorkeling. As they explored the beautiful turquoise ocean, Danike eventually came across a hidden sign that read, "Will you marry me?" Surprised and delighted, Danike accepted the proposal as Sam carefully slid the ring on her finger.
Danike and Sam got engaged while snorkeling in Phi Phi Island in Thailand, and they opted to tie the knot in another pristine beach: Boracay.
The couple worked hard to make many do-it-yourself projects, such as their name tags, candy bar labels, bridesmaid tags, and invitations. They also incorporated lolly bags into the table decorations and included drink stirrers for an extra detail. Signs that read "I Do" and "Me Too" signs on the back of their chairs added a fun yet romantic touch to their décor. For their favors, the couple placed their souvenirs in canvas welcome bags, designed with their unique turquoise leaf logo.
Even though they opted for a destination wedding and did a lot of their wedding details themselves, Danike tells other couples to take the time to relax: "[Make] sure you have plenty of time after the big day to really sit back, relax, and enjoy the moment with each other. And to recover after the months of planning!"
In the end, there's no denying that Danike and Sam found the perfect white paradise. The bride shares that they were only too happy to share their amazing memories which they can always look back on as a married couple.
