This Practical Bride Bought Her Dress Online and Streamed Wedding Music Through Spotify

July 10, 2020 was their set date to get married and Nathan and Alex made sure it would push through. They scrapped their original plan of getting married in Tagaytay with 150 guests and focused on finding a Church and intimate reception venue in their hometown for easier mobility. It definitely worked in the couples favor that they are both practical thinkers. It allowed them to act quickly and adjust effectively to the cards they were dealt with. So, with just a month left before the wedding, they were able to book a Church, apply for a marriage license, attend an online pre-cana seminar, and arrange an intimate reception. Finally, everything was set! Alex looked stunning in her wedding dress that she bought online for only P5,000 and everyone enjoyed the music that was streamed through Spotify. Nathan and Alex’s wedding may not be how they imagined it, but it definitely brought unimaginable warmth to their hearts. Check out these beautiful shots captured by Everafter Stories.


"Even with the pandemic and quarantine, we told ourselves that no matter what, we will push through with the wedding in July 10. So since we reside in Antipolo, we decided to find nearby churches and venues for easier movement." -Alex, Bride

"Immediately after ECQ was lifted in Rizal we booked San Pedro Calungsod Parish, applied our marriage license and had our pre-cana seminar online. All our requirements were done just a month before the wedding. And since we wanted to still have a beautiful dinner setup (just for immediate family), we booked Bakuran and Clementine even if its just for 15 pax max." -Alex, Bride

"One week before our wedding the IATF announced that 10% of the church’s capacity will be allowed for religious gatherings starting July 10 (exactly our wedding date), so that’s 60 persons for San Pedro Calungsod. So with this last minute update, we were able to invite some of our sponsors, closest relatives and friends for the church ceremony only, since it’s easier to practice social distancing. For the reception, we stuck with our original plan." -Alex, Bride

"With the uncertainties happening today, we felt that we shouldn’t postpone an important life event. We focused on what was truly important, which was our marriage in the church, and so we were able to let go of our initial “wants” for our reception. This decision was also fully supported by our parents." -Alex, Bride

"What I loved was being surrounded by the people we love the most. The sincerity of the people who still went to the church, knowing that there was no reception after, as well as those who watched the livestream. During our reception, we still did a program with my groom’s brother and sister as the hosts, with our own portable speakers for background music and my groom’s brother and sister as hosts. It was so warm and relaxing that we even served the cake and wine ourselves." -Alex, Bride
