Jen and Myong studied the same course in the same university and shared a lot of common friends back in college, but it was only after they graduated that their paths crossed. They were both nurses at the University of Santo Tomas Hospital when Myong's best friend introduced them to one another.
Jen and Myong started out as friends but as time went on, they started to develop deeper feelings for one another, Jen shares. "[W]e realized that we [enjoyed] every minute with each other, and [missed] one another when we were not together," adds Jen.
The two considered each other as answers to their prayers, so it was no surprise when they got engaged. Myong didn't need to stage a grand proposal--instead, he simply showed Jen the ring before going to bed on Christmas Eve. They first got married civilly in April of 2009, and exchanged I do's in front of the altar in July 2011.
Jen and Myong wanted their wedding to have a young, laid-back, and most importantly, warm feel for their families and loved ones. To achieve this, they went for an unusual reggae theme, which turned out chic and refreshing. With the use of yellow, red, and green as the wedding's color motif, the couple channelled the reggae vibe without going overboard.
With the help of the couple's coordinator, Ernest Pascual of Events! Events!, the couple's modern theme was executed in style. Despite being overseas, the two was still able to see their dream wedding come to reality.
As for suggestions for planning couples, Jen shares: "[I]nvest on your photographer and videographer. [They] don't have to be the expensive ones-[choose] one who can execute photos that reflect both your personalities. These are the only [souvenirs] you'll have after the wedding, food will run out, flowers will wither, but your photos and videos will forever be cherished," she explains.
