tEll uS hoW you mEt. WhAt WErE your fIrSt Im­prES­SIoNS of EAch othEr?

We were as­signed to work on the same story for the school paper while in col­lege at Ate­neo. I was the writer, and Ja­son was the pho­tog­ra­pher. I didn’t like Ja­son at all back then be­cause he fell asleep while I was do­ing my in­ter­view.

WhAt Do you Ap­prE­cI­AtE moSt About EAch othEr?

We’re po­lar op­po­sites—I hate quiet, Ja­son relishes it. I love peo­ple, Ja­son doesn’t talk. I am words, Ja­son is num­bers. We al­ways say that we have dif­fer­ent in­ter­ests but we value the same things. It’s what makes us click. We like work­ing and do­ing things on our own. We’re both plan­ners and from the very be­gin­ning, we thought about the fu­ture, be­cause we’re al­ways very in­vested in the things we do. We had been dat­ing for eight years when we got mar­ried, but we were lucky that we al­ready knew what we wanted in life and from each other from the get-go.

JA­SON PRO­POSED TELL US NOW

I hate cheesy, over-the-top pro­pos­als. I knew it was go­ing to hap­pen in 2016, but I didn’t know it was go­ing to hap­pen at that mo­ment. We went to a restau­rant we fre­quently go to, and when the dessert came, I was trans­fixed on the plate. Then I looked to the side and saw Ja­son al­ready on his knees with the ring. It was per­fect be­cause it turned an or­di­nary day ex­tra­or­di­nary. The an­swer was al­ways yes—I didn’t even look at the ring un­til the next day.

FA­VORITE MO­MENTS FROM YOUR WED­DING?

It’s true what they say—it’s all a blur. We loved the re­union feel­ing of our re­cep­tion. We didn’t have a pro­gram be­cause we wanted ev­ery­one to talk and en­joy each other’s com­pany. Our caterer, Mar­garita fores of Cibo di M, came up with some­thing very per­sonal: a Bi­colano-themed menu and tacos.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOK­ING FOR­WARD TO IN THIS NEW CHAP­TER IN YOUR LIVES?

We love that we can still be our­selves de­spite be­ing mar­ried and how quickly we ad­justed to liv­ing to­gether. We also love that we now have our own place to grow as a cou­ple.
