Call it a stroke of serendipity or destiny. Today’s story is about a couple who met when they were in high school, but lost touch because the guy went abroad for college and to pursue a golf career. They met again in a bible study group when he came back to the Philippines. They never left each other’s side since then, and they spent their days learning more about one another by trying out new restaurants and traveling together!
“If there’s any way to my heart, it’s through food. Every time Raph and I would go on dates, I would always ask him to bring me to a Spanish restaurant. Raph knew me so well and he knew it was always a dream of mine to have a destination wedding,” shares Bride Joanna.
Raph and Joanna had three years to prepare for their fairytale come-to-life wedding. Joanna shares that they really took their time to plan and communicate with their suppliers what they really wanted for their big day. For this destination wedding to also be successful, they learned to delegate tasks and welcomed the willingness of their family and friends to transport their wedding details to Spain. She also emphasized the need to not go overboard in planning, and to pin down non-negotiable wedding details.
