Our Story
Our journey together began April 2013—as typical teenage sweethearts but a thousand miles apart:

It was our senior year in high school...
As an angsty kid himself, he messaged me to talk.
Linden - 2013
June - 2013
In typical teen fashion, I was complaining about my life online.
And in April 2013...
I "accidentally" called him my boyfriend...

And it stuck!

We would visit each other every 3 or 4 months.

Sampaguita
In the Philippines, sometimes a wedding is called...
“Pag-iisang dibdib”
(Translation: The Union of [two] Hearts)
We find it important for us to incorporate some Filipino wedding traditions throughout the ceremony and reception. So here's what to expect in our Filipino-American wedding:
During the ceremony:
  • The Unity Veil
    The veil is draped over the couple's shoulders with each end pinned onto the Bride and Groom. The veil symbolizes protection of the marriage and the couple's togetherness as they face the world as one.
  • The Yugal (Wedding Unity Cord)
    The cord is looped in as an infinity symbol which sits on top of the Unity Veil. The Yugal represents everlasting love and fidelity between the couple.
  • The Aras (Unity Coins)
    After the cord and veil are removed, thirteen coins are presented by the wedding officiant or ring/coin bearer, which are then handed from the groom to the bride and passed back. The Aras represents prosperity, the sharing of worldly goods, and one's promise to support one another for richer or poorer.
  • The Unity Candle
    A candle is lit together by bride and groom to signify the union of them and their families.
During the reception:
  • Pabaon sa Binibining (The Money Dance)
    Garlands are draped and dollar bills are pinned to the Bride and Grooms clothing while they take turns dancing with guests. This tradition establishes the couple in their new life together and shows how much they are loved and appreciated. In our case, money isn't expected or required, but notes of affirmation are also welcomed to be pinned on the newlyweds.
  • Tinikling
    A traditional Philippine folk dance involving two people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground as the dancers step over and inbetween the poles. Everyone is invited to come up and enjoy this well-loved traditional dance. You don't need to be Filipino, and no experience is needed. Just as long as you can remember "in-in-out-out", we promise you won't lose a foot!
Now with all that said, to all our kaibigan at mga mahal namin sa buhay, tuloy po kayo at samahan ninyo kaming ipagsaya ang araw na ito! ♡
(Translation: To all our friends and family, c'mon and join us in the celebration!)
Registry
Tap on the gifts below to go to our registry options. If it's a better option for you to bring something physical to the reception or you want to bring something totally different, feel free to! There'll be an area set up just for that.

And please keep in mind— this isn't mandatory. We're thrilled that you're coming to celebrate with us- and that's the best gift of all!

Please note, we won't be opening any of these until after the wedding!
We're so excited and can't wait to share this beautiful moment with you. Hope to see you there!
Love always,
June & Linden
