Just the Two of Us: An Amazing Island Getaway Turned Intimate Wedding In Boracay

Just the Two of Us: An Amazing Island Getaway Turned Intimate Wedding In Boracay

With only a week to prepare for their wedding, this couple proved that the saying “we can make it if we tried” rings true.

Did you ever feel so at peace with the person whom you love? Did you feel that together, the two of you were unstoppable? Or that you can do anything as long as you are together? Weddings have that effect on me. And in unprecedented times like these, even the smallest of achievements a big win.

Faye and Daniel, for example, were supposed to have a big destination wedding with their whole family and friends. Unfortunately, they had to delay the grand celebration because of the current situation—the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

An Island Getaway: Just the Two of Us

Eventually, the couple decided to go on a vacation in Boracay—both to get their minds off things and to bring back some positive vibes to their dampened spirits.

“Just the two of us” was the theme of their holiday. And it was perfect. Powdery white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters, cool breeze, and fine palm trees. They knew right then and there that they could not ask for more.

As they try to make each day better than the day before, they suddenly had an idea. The two of them agreed to hold their wedding right there and then. It was a chance for them to finally say their much-awaited vows: to have and to hold, every day, for the rest of their lives; for better and for worse, for richer and for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish—till death do they part.

And soon, Faye and Daniel’s Boracay trip was about to go from an epic island getaway to an adventure of a lifetime.

The Beauty of it All

What’s amazing about this whole feat is that this couple managed to plan and execute their own wedding with the help of their trusted suppliers—all within a span of one week!

Yes, we know that having all your loved ones present on the day of your wedding will make it even more special, but let’s admit—there is something thrilling about having a wedding with just the two of you. And more so when you were only supposed to go on a short trip, too.

On their wedding day, the couple woke up to such a fine morning. The sun was bright all throughout the day, complemented by the cool winds of December. It was a good omen for good things to come.

The ceremony setup was carefully crafted and was a perfect fit for a two-person rendezvous. The vows that were exchanged in the middle of the ceremony were truly heartfelt. It even triggered the tears of people around the beach, even though they didn’t know the couple personally! Once the ceremony ended, the couple shared a moment alone together—cast in the famous pink and purple sunset skies of Boracay—to sit back and savor every minute of this memorable day.

After the astounding show of the sunset, the setup was transformed into a private dinner engagement. With a backdrop of starlit skies and the sound of crashing waves, the magical evening was made even more special.

Overall, the day turned out to be flawless. It was all in all unforgettable, easy, serene, dreamy, and full of passion. Just like how love should be.

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.”

Just like Faye and Daniel, most wedding couples had to go through a series of rollercoaster events and feelings. They’ve had to adjust from their comfort zones just to be able to move forward with their respective weddings. They’ve had to compromise their vision—including things they initially wanted—to be able to accommodate the needs of their guests. Plus, they had to adapt to the current rules and protocols for the safety and security of their loved ones.

But at the end of the day, after adjusting, compromising, and adapting, looking back to your wedding day will always be nostalgic. Especially since you now have the love of your life with you—in every waking moment, for the rest of your lives.
