Enjoy this eye candy and read through as the couple shares some of their wedding experiences.
A few words from the couple:
Why is the wedding so “Mark and Tina”?
Mark: Our theme was the ’40s. For a start, Tina, my bride is an “old soul”—she likes listening to old jazz music and adores the fashion in that era. And for me, I like vintage stuff. I own a not-so-vintage vespa and I like the details of old stuff. We both are hopeless romantics too. So we went for that theme.
What was your favorite part about the wedding?
Tina: The preparation! Making sure that even the small details would look perfect with our theme.
Mark: I love the ceremony part which was in the seawall garden of Sofitel. God gave us a beautiful sunset.
Did you have DIY projects in your wedding?
Tina: Yup! I took over making our centerpieces, lace umbrellas for the guests during the ceremony, dedication envelopes, pens w/ feathers & pearls, picnic set up at the ceremony, and did the gowns of the entourage, as I am a designer.
Mark: It was my idea to make the invitation a newspaper, and supervised the layout and feel of the invite and envelope. I also conceptualized the real living room set up of the photobooth. I shot our prenup as well.
