But all of this is nothing when you finally meet that person. Take it from Amy & Tim who surpassed all of those, along with patience, prayer and faith.

They started their new chapter in life as couple at The Inn at Fox Hollow located in Woodbury, New York. Love reflected on the pictures of Amy & Tim as they show chemistry every time they look on each other’s eyes.

Tim wore a black suite with a bowtie and a white rose boutonniére while Amy wore a classic white wedding gown. Simplicity and beauty is what these couples brought as they both walk together at the aisle.

The wedding hall was well lit with and the stage was designed with pillars of white roses. As a modern korean wedding, the couple did not forget to execute a smaller scale of their wedding tradition and that is to bow down to their parents. It was a joyful moment of uniting the love of Amy and Tim witnessed by their families, relatives and friends.

After the wedding ceremony, the reception went very light, euphoric and groovy as Amy dances with her father and Tim gracefully danced her mother before doing a dance with her newly-wedded wife. The reception hall was specially designed with several long tables, enough to be occupied by the families and guests.

As they enjoy the wonderful evening, the new husband and wife changed their attire into Hanboks to incorporate their Korean culture. God surely knows who to give you. And Amy & Tim is an evidence of finding true love in amidst of a long time waiting.


When Quirky meets Composed

Who could’ve thought that Jessica and Jose will end up marrying each other? Jose is a quirky type of guy; the kind of person who tells jokes and makes you laugh and snore at the same time.

Jessica, on the other hand, is somewhat opposite to Jose. She is more of a composed typed of girl. Jessica is a kind-hearted person, gentle, graceful and whose heart has a part for kids.

Despite their different personalities, they have learned to accept these differences along their journey and found out their common denominator – LOVE.

Their wedding ceremony was held at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens in Los Angeles, California. It was filled with orange pastel-colored flowers and surrounded by the green scenery of the garden venue.

Jose was manly in his sleek black suit and Jessica looked young, radiant and beautiful as she walks down the aisle wearing a vibrant white lacey sheath wedding dress. They both looked perfectly matched for each other as they held hands.

Under the bright and sunny daylight in a Californian breeze, the couple joyfully kissed when the words “you may kiss the bride” was thrown in the air.

The night was crazy fun and full of cheers and laughter as all of the guests, families and friends hopped on down the dancefloor to celebrate the new chapter of Jessica and Jose’s life as husband and wife.

Sincere greetings and well-wishes were shared, and stories about love, humor and about how they witnessed the love story of Jessica and Jose were told. Love, indeed, can make things go round, it can make you love the things you thought were not your cup of tea. Because love is love; its definition may vary from one person to the next, but the feeling of being in love remains the same. And this pure love, is the reason why Jessica married Jose and Jose married Jessica.


A Bride’s Vow

Hi Brendan,

It was like waiting for the sun to rise for the day and waiting for the first star to shine every night, that is how I am thrilled everytime you call me out for a date.

Years past and here we are, preparing as we walk towards meeting each other not in some another coffee shop or restaurant, but in journey that will settle us for a lifetime of staring at each other’s eyes.

As you were waiting there at the center of the aisle, I cannot help but to look back on the memories we shared, all those time you keep on asking me what is my favorite color, favorite flower, favorite flavor and all of those times you endlessly look at me until I finally melt.

I know that this next chapter won’t be easy, but I know with you and God as the center of our relationship everything will be in place. With our families, friends, relatives and as a witness of this momentous moment here at the Martha Clara Vineyard, I vow to love, to support, to take care of you, to pray for you until the day I die.

So thank you for accepting my family, thank you for the patience, thank you for taking a note of everything I like, for taking a note of my favorite color, favorite flower, favorite drink. Thank you for accepting my flaws and my past. Thank you for making me laugh endlessly and for always laying those beautiful eyes on me. There will be more less coffee to be shared and foot warmers because I found the warmth I am searching for in you.

My journey is not mine anymore but it is ours. I promise I will support you and will always be there whenever you need me. I love you from the bottom of my heart.

Love, Danielle

Filipinos are people who have tight bond when it comes about family relationships. Basically, they are family oriented. It’s inculcated in their culture and values. That’s why marriage is big thing for them. Take it from Beverly and Theodore.


Some people prepare their weddings for just a month or two, some even prepare for weeks, but for Filipinos, it takes lots of lots of months to prepare. They look into every single detail and make sure that everything is perfect.


Beverly’s wedding gown was custom made from the traditional Filipino baro’t saya wedding gown to a modern laced white wedding dress. Theodore wore the Filipino Barong which is the national dress of the Philippines. It is an embroidered formal shirt which is lightweight and worn untucked over an undershirt. Generally, Filipino wedding dresses are white because it symbolizes purity.

The men in the entourage also wore Filipino Barong and the women wore peach colored dresses. It is by tradition and culture that female guests are not to wear white dresses since it contests with the bride’s wedding dress color.

Filipinos are known to be faithful people and that is evident to Beverly and Theodore. They took their vows in front of God, promising their everlasting commitment to each other and be an inspiration of faith to other people. As the wedding day came to place for Beverly and Theodore, St. Anthony Church in Hamilton, New Jersey was filled with their family and friends, happily journeying with the couple.

The Awe-inspiring Barn Wedding

A barn wedding sounds like an ordinary option when choosing a wedding theme.  Some people might feel uneasy when they think of having the most memorable moment in their life be pictured with haystacks, wheats, dried land and a barn house.  Some would prefer having the wedding on conventional sites like at a castle, an estate, or a church where the decorations are limitless with expensive flowers and artistic designs. But for Cindy and Martin’s wedding, they proved that barn weddings can be uniquely beautiful.

Cindy and Martin bind their relationship in to a stronger one at a private Barn along Mountain Road, Grahamsville in New York. The scenery is fresh for the eyes because of nature’s own way of designing the view. The open field provides cool outdoor breeze and calm vibe for the couple, their family and guests to enjoy. It is surely an escape from the busy buzzing and stressful cityscape.

One advantage of having a Barn wedding is that it does not require the couple to have expensive attires. Wearing a simple white lacy wedding dress, Cindy, topped it all with her beautiful smile, looking splendidly captivating. On the other hand, Martin looks bold in his dark blue suit.

Barn weddings also give you the opportunity to be artistic. Cindy and Martin added their personal touch in their wedding by applying their creativity. The aisle was simply arranged with haystacks as chairs and an arc covered in vines.

Because barn weddings are not as accessible as weddings that take place in the city, only the family, close relatives and friends are most likely to be the only ones attending. This creates an intimate atmosphere and tighter bond for the family. Not to mention, it is cost-friendly to have fewer guests.

The reception was made simple yet memorable. Long wooden tables and foldable chairs were used, creating an intimate moment with their families and guests. Fire crackers, loud modern country music and a bonfire was lit. It opened every hearts as their families, relatives and friends jive to it. Everything was awe-inspiring.
