Nikki and Andy were set up by Nikki's former boss, who is Andy's cousin-in-law. Sparks flew on their first date, as Nikki and Andy found themselves at ease around each other. The two talked until 2 a.m., and by their second date, Andy was already introducing Nikki to his relatives.
Andy was based in New Zealand, and he was only visiting the country when he and Nikki started dating. Despite the distance, he and Nikki found ways to connect. Andy also flew back and forth the Philippines and New Zealand so that he and Nikki could see each other once in a while--and their long-distance relationship flourished.
On their ninth month as a couple, and on the morning of Andy's birthday, Nikki woke up with Andy staring at her. "He smiled and reached out for a box under his pillow and said, 'I don't want to be away from you anymore, and I want to spend my life with you already. Will you marry me?' And of course, I said yes!" the bride gushes.
Nikki and Andy's wedding exuded a romantic air as it featured a dainty lilac and pink motif. Nikki, a big fan of shabby chic, also decided to incorporate rustic details into their big day.
The couple's reception was peppered with lush floral arrangements, rustic wooden details, and delicate ceramic accents. Nikki also busied herself with preparing the entourage's souvenirs, which she dressed up according to the wedding's theme.
Nikki and Andy were able to pull off a beautiful affair, but the bride admits that while they had a year to prepare, some details were addressed at the last minute. "I wish we had more time to prepare. Like I know we had a year to prepare for the wedding, but I've always been a last-minute person. It was such a big mistake to try to pull of a spectacular wedding with a few months left," shares the bride. She adds, "My advice to all the future brides is that try not to be a last-minute bride. Nothing beats being prepared for the biggest day of your life! And also, make it memorable by making sure you have the best people for your wedding. I know I did, and my husband and I are very, very much happy with the outcome of our wedding."
