Rebellious Couple - Ji & Jessen's Love & Favorites Wedding

Lifted from Jason Magbanua's SDE

"A Rebellious Bride is a dreamer, a believer that all things are possible, not afraid to take risks, criticism, and most of all once when it's all set, she just pulls off that one great show and savors the moment"

---Rebellious Bride Jihan Candelario-Makilan

Ji & Jessen's giveaway was a bottle of Honey--
because they call each other Honey and well...
they are just such a
sweet and fun couple anyway! :)

"Pwede bang ang theme nalang namin 'Favorites' kase puro favorites namin yung details ng wedding?" (Can our theme just be called 'Favorites' since the wedding details are about our favorites?).

This was how Rebellious Bride Ji explained to us her wedding a few months back.

I've personally witnessed Ji's wedding preps for more than year. How she was so addicted to going to several bridal expos, how she went from one food tasting to the next, and how she selected each and every member of her all-star wedding team. More importantly, I've witnessed how she fought for what she and Jessen wanted for their wedding.

I'd say if there really IS a need to encapsulate Ji & Jessen's wedding, then we might as well call it the "Love & Favorites" wedding. Love because they've been together for 10 years, and from the invites, to the table numbers (tables were highly personalized, strategically named and grouped into each year in the couple's love timeline and the people that made each year special), to their old pictures, it was so evident that this was a love that lasted years and years of happiness, fun, and love overcoming all obstacles!

Favorites, because well, as Ji already said, everything about their details were simply their favorite things! How very simplistic yet AUTHENTIC & GENUINE can you get? And that's really what a wedding should be. A reflection of who you truly are as a couple....and their video captured just that. How they are such a makulit couple, how Ji is such a "showbiz dancing beauty" (the bride after all was a UP Pep Squad and she does work in media!), and how their love is like being swept off of your feet. Enjoy the wedding video :)
