Since Ralph and Mariko were both based abroad during their engagement, the couple opted for a longer engagement period so that they could have sufficient time for their wedding preparations. They envisioned minimalist styling, using only fresh greenery and white blooms, consistent in all the arrangements and the finer details. The natural beauty of the venue was highlighted as well as the true meaning behind the celebration. Ralph and Mariko did not skimp when it came to their wardrobe, as each donned a glamorous piece designed by Francis Libiran, the couple’s dream designer. Their entourage was also dressed to the nines in charming blue hues.
To couples who find themselves in a similar situation because of the pandemic, fret not because your special day will come and the wait is only going to make it even more meaningful. Scroll through the photos by Myio Okamoto and feel the overflowing cheer when their wedding day finally arrived!
