Accidentally on Purpose: Sabrina and Anton’s Love Story

Weddings | September 15, 2021
  • 1

Sometimes, it takes a bold gesture to sweep her off her feet. From a meet-cute to dating and marriage, this love story is one for the books.

Who would have thought that a tumbler that was left behind (whether by accident or on purpose) would spark a beautiful love story between two people?

It all began when Sabrina and Anton met on the stunning island of Balesin, where they spent an amazing night together with their closest friends. Anton wanted to know Sab more and luckily, (or purposely) he left his Healthy Human tumbler inside the villa, where she was staying in. This led the two of them into talking to each other and seeing each other again.

And the rest was history.

The Ups and Downs in a Relationship

The couple was mostly in bliss about being together. Although, just like any other relationship, theirs also faced certain challenges—one of which was the difference in their beliefs.

Anton—being the decisive person that he is—knew for sure that he wanted to be with Sabrina for the rest of his life. He also wanted to be the one to make her happy for good. And so, without a single doubt in his heart and mind, he changed his religion, as this is the only way that he would be able to marry her.

As a wedding planner, I have seen numerous couples who had different beliefs. And yet, they stayed with the religion that they believed in and got married. This move by Anton was a chivalrous and heartwarming move for me. And this really showed that he would move mountains just to be with Sab.

Of Wedded Bliss and Love

As a couple, they are a simple and elegant pair. Because of this, you can expect their wedding to be the same.

The wedding ceremony was held at the Iglesia Ni Kristo—Local Ng New Era, located in Dasmariñas, Cavite. As it is, this kapilya was majestic as a structure, but it was made even more stunning by the impressive mind and hands of Il Fiore.

This was followed through by cocktails and an equally stunning reception at Antonio’s in Tagaytay. Of course, we all already know how this place exudes sophistication from the inside out. But Il Fiore‘s magic made it a whole new level. Stepping into the venue will make you feel like you are in a dream in an instant.

Sharing This Moment with Loved Ones

But the beauty in all this will not be complete—if not for the people present during the day of the wedding.

What’s more, the love in the atmosphere was very much evident. The warm smiles of everyone were so moving, that even the hardest of rains did not hinder anyone’s happiness that day. In fact, the rain made them enjoy the wedding even more, as you can definitely feel the cool Tagaytay breeze even if the wedding was held at noontime.

While the bride wore a tasteful wedding gown by Rosa Clara, her entourage wore vibrant colors by Wear Easy, which stood out and made such a statement amid the gloomy weather.

One more thing that was prominent with me during that day was the mutual admiration of friends towards the couple. It was very lovely to hear how they talked about their love for each other and how they were all honored to be witnesses to all of it. In fact, the admiration they have for Sabrina and Anton was so special that you would want that same kind of support, too.

What’s more, the pictures from Proudrad and the video by Studio King will be proof of what I am speaking about. Try not to smile and say “aww” as you look at the big beam and pure joy on Sab’s face!

Musings on Love and Marriage

My key takeaway?

It may take one brief moment to notice someone. Yes, you might do something bold to make sure you sweep that certain someone off their feet. But then, the most important thing is to make sure that later down the road, when everything is hard, you would choose to see things through.

To cherish memories of the both of you dancing despite the rain, laughing despite the pain. For your love to never change despite the continuous passing of the time—together and always, choosing each other at the end of every day.

Congrats, Sabrina and Anton!
