Pia first heard of Andre in 2006 through her cousin. Pia's cousin asked her to go out with Andre, but Pia was attached to someone else at that time. Two years later, Pia was set up for a blind date with Andre by a friend of a friend, and found out that he was the Andre she had heard of a few years back.
Early on the date, the Pia instantly felt the connection between her and Andre. "The feeling I had during the date was so light. I was very much at ease with him; it felt like I've known him for a long time already. I wasn't in love yet, I just felt happy and calm," Pia shares. Pia later on realized what a great idea the blind date was when she and Andre got together as a couple, and eventually exchanged I do's later on.
Pia and Andre's wedding had a mix of vintage and quirky details. Hacienda Isabella's grounds lent a warm and homey ambiance to the couple's wedding. Candle-lit stone paths, artsy antique pieces, wooden tables, chairs and ladders, iron rails and gates painted black, sprays of greens and flowers, and old Filipino-style food servings gave their wedding a vintage feel with a countryside twist. To combine the venue's old world feel with a bit of quirkiness, the couple incorporated some fun and chic wedding details. Unique bird cake toppers, yellow and gray ribbon décor, and DIY moustache props made the couple's wedding charming.
In addition to the perfect blend of one-of-a-kind details, the couple's wedding was made even more memorable with surprise performances. The bride's aunt offered a special prayer; Pia's cousin and brother also performed musical numbers that were both personal and heartfelt. But what topped off the night was the couple's surprise first dance--Andre's family and friends were especially delighted to watch the number since Andre rarely dances.
The harmony in Pia and Andre's wedding wasn't just found in the details. It was in the way the couple and their loved ones all came together to celebrate their special day with them.
