Ajay and Ejay were married at The Mango Farm in Antipolo, The Philippines. They chose pink and black as their colour scheme, and their theme was a mix of Converse trainers (which they both love) and music!
“We wanted to show our different personalities on our wedding day, so we started planning the wedding with just a black and pink theme”, said the bride. “Ajay was a rocker before becoming a lawyer and he’s still the vocalist of a rock band, loves wearing black shirts, and listens to Metallica. I, on the other hand, am a girly-girl. I love Hello Kitty and anything pink!”
“We incorporated other details that we both love,” she continued. “Ajay wanted to wear Chuck Taylor’s with his suit and we asked the groomsmen to wear the same. The flower girls also wore them and I changed into them for the evening. We even encouraged our guests to wear them if they wanted! On the day we were surprised that almost everyone wore them, even those who wore dresses! To fit the theme we put the Chuck Taylor image on our save the date, invitation, monogram, and table names. It became the icon that tied the whole theme together.”
“Music is very important to us but we have very different tastes, both of which we wanted to be reflected in the wedding. To everyone’s surprise, we did not choose a band. Instead we booked a string quartet that played our favourite songs during the ceremony. Ajay walked down the aisle to AC/DC and for my bridal march they played Stolen by Dashboard Confessionals.”
“We planned for a summer wedding since we wanted a garden ceremony”, she continued. “The summer months in the Philippines is from March to May, so setting our wedding date on Ajay’s birthday, April 12, was just perfect. Unfortunately, there was a tropical storm that week and it was forecast to bring rains in Manila. Imagine our dilemma! Luckily on the day it passed us by. The sun was shining brightly when we started the ceremony at 4 pm.”
“Our wedding might not have been something some of our guests would have chosen, but for us it was perfect”, she concluded. “It was actually heart warming to get compliments that they had fun and our wedding party rocked!”
