Hann and Ian were orgmates back in college at the University of the Philippines. The two would bump into each other at their organization's tambayan--Hann would be goofing off with their orgmates, while Ian would be quietly studying in a corner.
Despite their different personalities, the two found themselves talking on the phone for hours, and hearing mass, watching movies, and walking around the campus together. Hann had just gotten out of a relationship then, but she and Ian quickly realized that they had feelings for each other. Eventually, the two became a couple.
After years of being together, Hann and Ian felt that it was time for them to tie the knot. There wasn't any formal proposal, but that didn't make their union even more special. Hann and Ian celebrated their seventh year together by finally walking down the aisle.
Hann and Ian's photographer, J Lucas Reyes, describes the couple's wedding as "simple, beautiful, and sincere," and the couple couldn't agree more. With a pink and gray palette for their wedding, the couple filled their special day with rustic elements that added warmth to the celebration.
The couple was quite hands-on with the wedding preparations. They did most of the decorations together, and also employed the help of family and friends. Burlap, wooden crates, and amber beer bottles were among the materials that they used for the décor, proving that they didn't need to spend much to pull off a charming affair.
Along the way, the couple learned several valuable things. Hann says, "For doing DIY projects, try to make everything simple and within your time constraint. Stick to what you want to do." She adds, "As much as we want our perfect wedding to happen, we should not forget to enjoy the moment. Let go of things beyond your control and just focus on the idea that you and your fiancé will finally be together." The groom also shares, "Prioritize what is really important to you." By appreciating the simple things, the couple was able to enjoy their wedding day.
