Joji and Chrissy's love story started with their love of photography. They first met in July 1, 2010. It all started with a chat conversation when Joji offered to give Chrissy a copy of a photography e-book in a USB drive at the ground floor of their office since they were officemates. They still keep that USB as a reminder of how they first met and found each other as a couple.
After five years of dating, Joji decided to propose to Chrissy on March 2017, The final plan was that he will propose during his “birthday party” at Romulo Café. He invited the family of Chrissy to witness this proposal. Everything was so vivid to Joji on how he envisioned his master plan. Joji recalled the background music as Chrissy walked into the room. He gave an infinity card and he mentioned a few words... "It's been five years since we started being couple and it's time to "level up" our relationship." Then Joji popped the question and she replied a big Yes.
Joji & Chrissy's wedding was held at one of the most amazing and beautiful city in the Philippines, Bacolod. I would love to stay in Bacolod if I had an opportunity. The place was inviting and the people were so friendly.
Day started in Seda hotel where hair and make-up was done. Chrissy was surrounded with so much love from her girls with lots of laughter and great vibes. As for the boys, Joji prepared personalized shot glass for his groomsmen as Ma-anne took photographs at them with ease. During the ceremony Chrissy vividly recalled and told me.."When I saw my mom teary-eyed, tumawa na lang ako para hindi rin ako maiyak. And mas lalo na nung nakita kong crying like a baby si Joji, tawa na lang din ako. 🤣 When I held onto his arms, ok na ako." Chrissy just felt the excitement throughout until the reception. She never expected nor imagined that her wedding will be flooding with tears ( Tears of Joy ). All in all, Joji and Chrissy were overwhelmed on how their wedding actually came out. Ma-anne and I are truly grateful that we got to document their wedding.
Joji and Chrissy, no one deserves this beautiful wedding more than the two of you. Ma-anne and I, are beyond happy that we got to be there to witness your heartfelt love story. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. I hope this new adventure of yours together gets better each and every day. Cheers to many more decades of love and happiness! =)
