Tisha and Mio were block mates back in college. Tisha narrates, "[In the beginning,] we rarely talked to one another. As the years passed, we ended up belonging to the same circle and eventually, we became best friends towards the end of our college years." It took a while for Tisha and Mio to realize their true feelings for each other; but when they did, they were inseparable.
After seven years of being a couple, Mio finally proposed to Tisha on her 27th birthday. "While having dinner at a restaurant in Alabang, Mio handed me a figure of Keroro (an anime character). Thinking it was another cute-but-nonsense gift, I shook it and gave Mio a big anime-like imaginary-sweat-drop expression. When I opened the secret compartment, I found an engagement ring. Mio didn't even have to ask the question, I just wore the ring and that was it," shares Tisha.
Tisha and Mio's city wedding incorporated a playful theme that showcased the couple's delightful personalities. The yellow and gray motif was cascaded into various wedding details such as the invitations, entourage's attires, and décor.
The artsy couple prepared several DIY projects for the wedding. Some of these projects were the wedding cord, boutonnieres, save-the-date cards, bridesmaids' clutch bags, guestbook alternative, and wedding invitations.
According to Tisha, it's important to prepare contingency plans when planning a wedding. "Since the church was quite far from the reception venue, we planned out every possible route to get there. We prepared three routes to be sure." The bride also adds, "[For marrying couples], arguments are inevitable. Don't let those get in the way. You have to enjoy each and every step of the planning stage. A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so savor it."
