Closer Now and Forever
The story of boy meets girl happens so often that it ends up less than extraordinary. But if there is something everybody will surely be interested to know, it is probably how the boy and the girl ends up as a couple.  Everybody would want to take a trip down the memory lane… when they met, how sparks flew, their firsts, and all the other numerous things they shared. What was once stories of two different people are now woven together in one beautiful love story, which all started with a very magical meeting of the boy and the girl.

This is exactly how soon-to-be-wed couples Ian King and Joey Mead and Marco Rodriguez and Rosanna Ocampo remember their first meetings as they share their stories one night in an intimate cocktail lounge at The Manila Peninsula Rigodon Ball. Invited family and friends who received especially designed blue and white invitations, gathered to witness this magical moment up close. The romantic all-white set up designed by renowned Robert Blancaflor, illuminated by blue lights, and dimmed, as if it was a cue for everybody to get ready.

Guests were entertained by two of the couples closest friends and matchmakers, Tim Yap and JM Rodriguez while they wait for the arrival of the couples. Tim and JM shared how they set the couples up, from how Tim led Ian and Joey’s meeting...

... to JM’s arranged between Rosanna and his “cousin” Marco. Couples told their stories and professed their love for one another. It was their smiles that gravitated them towards each other and surprisingly, ending up together. First up were Ian and Joey’s love story AVP.

Known for her fierce walk and undeniably bright smile, Joey met Ian in one of the parties they have been to. Ian asked one of their common friends, Tim to introduce him to Joey and the rest as they say is history. From their burger and arcade date to their engagement party, the couple radiates happiness so evident in their bright smiles. To them, great things are bound to happen for the both of them. “The future is boundless,” says Ian. “We see each other together for eternity,” Joey adds.  Ian and Joey came in as cued and the vivacious couple turned heads as they went up and joined Tim and JM. Their infectious smile got everybody. A perfect reflection of how blissful the couple is. Audience listened as the couple talked more about their story and everyone felt it was a match made in heaven.

As if their love story was not enough to get everyone all mushy, another romantic AVP was shown featuring the second couple of the night, Rosanna and Marco. Rosanna’s smile instantly captivated Marco. It is one of those things that Marco instantly liked about Rosanna, which made him ask one of their friends, JM to set him up with her. From their first date two years back, until the day he proposed to her, the couple looks forward to brighter and blissful future together. “I don’t see myself with anyone else,” tells Rosanna, “I look forward to a new chapter,” adds Marco.

A vision in white, brides-to-be Joey and Rosanna looked extra beautiful in their white gowns made by Rajo Laurel with make-up by Jing Monis Propaganda team and Jun Escario coupled with make-up by Omar Ermita respectively, accompanied by their fiancés, Ian and Marco who both looked dashing in their suits by Joey Samson. It was truly an enchanting sight with guests also keeping with the theme of white.

Everybody got excited as Tim and JM officiated an unusual ceremony complete with vow meant especially for them. “Flash that Close Up White Now smile… you may kiss your soon-to-be bride!” Everybody gleefully watched the lovebirds as they show their pearly white teeth and sealed the kiss, definitely a preview of good things to come for the two pairs.

Ian and Joey, and Marco and Rosanna rove around and met their guests. All smiles, each couple received well wishes for a new story that has yet to unfold for each of them. DJ Mars Miranda provided the music for the night, with nonstop mash-up of hits from '80s, '90s, and ’00, which had guests dancing the night away. Over flowing wines and cocktails and delicious food provided by The Manila Peninsula.
