Niki and JJ's love story began when Niki, fresh out of college, started working at a Manila-based company where she met JJ. During that time, Niki didn't pay much attention to JJ. However, for six months, JJ relentlessly pursued her, until finally, she fell for him too and they became a couple.
Their first two years of dating went by so fast, until JJ had to be relocated to Bacolod for work. For three years, the two endured a long-distance relationship. JJ adds, "[During this time,] I learned not to focus on myself or on our situation but on our relationship instead." They managed to sustain their relationship, despite the distance, and as if by God's grace, JJ was assigned in Manila again, and everything was smooth sailing from then on.
Years later, JJ proposed to Niki during their trip to Singapore. Niki shares, "JJ surprised me by setting up a fine dining dinner for two inside the Cable car in Mount Faber going to Sentosa, complete with flowers and decorations." Still teary-eyed and overwhelmed with emotions, Niki managed to answer, 'yes.'
Niki and JJ's Christian ceremony took place at ASYA Premier Boracay, a secluded resort in Aklan. The calming colors of the sea, which was the motif of the gathering, were reflected in various details of the beautiful affair.
The couple's DIY projects, such as the invites, packaging of the souvenirs, and wooden placards, showcased Niki and JJ's artsy sides. Niki shares, "We wanted to do away with the usual invitations, so JJ and I came up with the idea to give away sunglasses along with the tag which served as the invitation and souvenir."
The breathtaking view of the sea added a summer flair into the gathering. The celebration, which lasted until the wee hours of the morning, was jump started by JJ's surprise flash-mob dance number for Niki.
The couple's big day turned out to be a fun affair not just for the couple, but for their guests as well. Niki relays, "Don't let the little details stress you out, and just have fun on your big day. JJ and I never fought or argued during the five-month preparation period. Blessings just fell on our laps, and we gave back all the glory to God."
