Meg and Alex were blockmates at the University of Asia and the Pacific. They didn't like each other at first, but on their second year in college, they found out that they both cut classes often. Soon, they started spending time with each other, and became good friends. Romance eventually blossomed.
As a couple, the two would travel together. Upon arriving at their hotel in Hong Kong for a vacation, Meg and Alex decided to look for a place to eat. Shares Meg, "I really hate it when he buys something, and he hides it from me. And he does this very often. My husband is like a male version of Imelda Marcos having lots of expensive shoes. While we were in the mall, he told me he needs to go back to our hotel room because he left something. Then when he showed up a few minutes later, I saw him carrying a large paper bag with what appears to be a shoe box inside. This made me really furious since just talked about curbing his expenses."
To pacify Meg, Alex suggested that they stop by a viewing deck overlooking Hong Kong Central's skyline. Alex asked Meg to take a look at the shoes--and if she didn't like them, he'd return them to the store. "Upon opening the box, all I saw was a pair of wooden shoetrees. This made me angrier because I felt that he was just making fun of me," says Meg. Later on, Meg's anger was assuaged when she realized that a ring hung from one of the shoe trees. Without Alex having to ask a question, Meg said yes to the proposal.
Meg and Alex had envisioned a tasteful wedding that featured details subtly inspired by Provence, France. They opted to have a simple celebration that exuded romance and charm.
The couple focused on their priorities for the wedding, which was good food. They had several food tasting sessions to make sure that guests would tremendously enjoy the dinner. Moreover, Meg and Alex decided to do away with most of the traditional reception practices. Instead, they prepared new games for the guests, and also kept the reception short and sweet so that guests would have more time for conversations.
By staying true to their personalities, the couple got the wedding they had envisioned. All the beautiful details came together to give the couple and their guests a memorable night.
