Love Story:

Differences and distance may not always be the things that keep people apart-sometimes, they may just be what draws a couple to each other.

Gen and Ian have known each other for more than a decade, but their relationship wasn't exactly perfect.  However, despite their rough start, their years apart proved that true love transcends time and space.

When Gen transferred from Davao to Manila to continue her schooling, Ian took a leap of faith to visit her in the hopes of rekindling their relationship. As for Gen, it wasn't easy for her to turn her back to the man she truly loves in spite of the trials they went through in the previous years.

After their on and off stint, the two finally managed to keep their relationship above water and on stable ground. Years later, Ian got down on one knee and finally proposed to Gen while they were aboard a boat one lovely evening. With a beautiful symphony playing in the background, the groom popped the question, and Gen--without hesitation-- said yes.

 

Wedding Preparations:

Gen and Ian tied the knot in Bohol, and their big day featured references to their long-distance relationship. Vintage-inspired elements in peach, magenta, cream, yellow, and blush pink were used throughout the affair.

Since Gen is away for work during the planning stage, Ian stepped in to organize the wedding. Although the two were apart during the preparation process, their constant communication paved the way for a successful celebration. Shares the bride, "I was in Japan and he was in Davao. And ours was a destination wedding, and that made it much more difficult to plan. I think what helped us was planning early. I was so lucky that I had a very hands-on groom. Friends and family also helped out in the preparation.
