While Jinkay was unassumingly filling up her wedding mood boards, Lance was planning a proposal on February 24th (as a tribute to Kobe Bryant). She said yes, and the couple started planning their big dream wedding. However, two weeks later, the lockdown was declared and changes had to be made. Lance and Jinkay decided to make their wedding as intimate as possible, without making the details any less beautiful than they originally imagined. From the bride’s regal ballgown to the tasteful modern Filipinina styling, this wedding looked every bit as grand as those with hundreds of guests!
The bride, Jinkay, shares “When the church doors opened, first thing I laid my eyes on was the site of my Groom, everything else were a blur. I’m thinking—this is it. This is the sight of my future, the father of my future children, my everything.” Bask in the romance from this blissful union as you hear more from the bride and browse through this set of photos by Myio Okamoto.
