The couple tied the knot in a simple yet lovely ceremony in a quaint church in Bacolod.
Edna and Ramon gathered their closest family and friends as they exchanged vows in a simple yet lovely ceremony in a church in Bacolod. Shades of green and white exuded a calming and refreshing vibe in this intimate affair that took place before daybreak one October morning.
Edna and Ramon have been working in the same company for several years before their romance blossomed in 2009. That year, the two were assigned to projects in Japan, where they got to know each other better.
Their first date, which comprised a series of activities, was on Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate, and so there was a change of plans. Instead of going on a romantic date, which was to include ice skating in one of Japan's scenic spots, Edna and Ramon ended up having dinner in an Italian restaurant.
A month after their first date, Ramon had to return to the Philippines to finish some errands. Constant communication through social networks kept their relationship on solid ground. Two years into their relationship, Ramon finally asked Edna to be his wife.
Wedding PreparationsEdna and Ramon tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at a quaint church in Bacolod. The event had the couple’s close friends and family in attendance.
Different shades of green and white provided a serene and refreshing vibe to a laid-back affair that marked the couple's marriage. The lovely event featured simple yet elegant décor, which were mostly customized by the couple and the guests themselves. The bride shares, "We did a lot of DIY projects. What I'm very proud of is our wedding cord, since it is different from the usual. I took my inspiration from Kidada wraps and made it myself in seven hours."
In between the ceremony and reception, the couple had traditional Filipino favorites served to guests. "We had a cart of hot piyaya and Japanese hotcakes with hot chocolate, coffee, and water set up outside the church so the guests can grab a quick breakfast before going to the lunch reception," says Edna.
At the reception, the couple and their guests listened to the UP Singing Ambassadors’ beautiful renditions of classic love songs. The wedding, with its simple and homey feel, was festive in more ways than one.
