Kat and Paul met at Paul's birthday party, when one of their common friends brought Kat along to the event. Paul found Kat to be a cool person, and they hung out with the same barkada after that initial meeting. Over a year later, the two found themselves dating.
After some time, Kat revealed to Paul that she had planned to receive her training in Pediatrics in the United States. Fortunately, fate was on the couple's side, as Paul also revealed that he had accepted a job in New York. Things went well for the couple, and on their 11th month together, Paul decided to make Kat's birthday celebration in Puerto Rico even more special.
The two took a walk on the beach until Paul found the perfect spot on the sand. There, he presented Kat with a basket containing a dozen roses. He handed the roses one by one, and with each rose, he gave Kat a reason why he loved her. As Paul picked up the 12th rose, Kat realized that the last rose turned out to be a jewelry box. Paul then got down on one knee, and finally popped the question.
Kat and Paul wanted a modern wedding that reflected their personalities. They chose to incorporate peacock designs into their various wedding details, and these added a luxe feel to their fun event.
Despite having to plan their wedding from abroad, Kat and Paul still made an effort to personalize their big day. They took on DIY projects, the most notable of which were their invitations. The bride designed their invites and had them printed an online supplier. The couple then dressed up the invitations with satin ribbons, wax seals, and peacock feathers, which perfectly complemented the wedding's theme.
The couple celebrated their ceremony and reception at the Glass Pavilion of The Mango Farm in Antipolo. The couple originally wanted an outdoor affair, but the rain that day compelled them to switch venues. Despite the minor hitch, the couple was still optimistic on their wedding. The bride shares, "One important thing that we learned for our own wedding, is that if things go wrong on your wedding day (like a torrential downpour), just let it go. Enjoy the day you worked weeks, months, and maybe even years for, and make it a day that you will remember for the rest of your life for all the good reasons."
