Sher and Maui both went to college at the Ateneo de Manila University, but they didn't meet each other until they both went to work for GMA 7. The two started out as friends, and their jobs allowed them to constantly work together. Eventually, their friendship blossomed into an office romance.
When Sher and Maui celebrated their fourth anniversary as a couple, they went to Cebu for a vacation. As they had dinner by the beach at Imperial Palace, Mactan, Maui started taking photos of Sher. When Sher asked him to show her the pictures on his camera, Sher found a photo of a hand holding an engagement ring. Sher then asked, "O, kanino yan?" Eventually, she realized that she was being proposed to, and she finally said yes.
Sher and Maui chose a deep orange shade for their motif, burnt sunset. The bride shares that the couple's common love for the beach helped them decide on their wedding color, which was incorporated in various details of their wedding.
While the couple's chosen color palette added warmth to the wedding, the couple also included special performances in the reception, which fostered an even warmer atmosphere. Sher and Maui hired The Johnnys for a session of rockeoke, and their guests had fun taking turns with the mic. The couple also had a song number, as the bride sang while the groom played the guitar.
The bride shares that planning for their wedding was challenging, but she and Maui were able to overcome the challenges that came their way. "I learned that wedding planning is your first big test as a couple. You just have to learn when to assume the task out of your own initiative, especially when both of you are busy with your careers. Things need to get done and with or without a coordinator--it's still you who will call the shots," she says.
