tell us how you met. my for­mer in­tern’s boyfriend set me up on a blind date with andro, who was his next-door neigh­bor. that night in 2008, I saw a glimpse of how much andro val­ued the im­por­tance of fam­ily. both of our younger broth­ers were there! I knew he was an in­tro­vert and i, an ex­tro­vert, but we shared a lot of sim­i­lar­i­ties: our love for al­ter­na­tive mu­sic, mex­i­can and ital­ian food, and grey’s anatomy. I went home that night feeling “kilig.” the next day—and yes, andro will al­ways tell me that I was the one who made the first move—i sent him a mes­sage. but af­ter that, he never stopped ask­ing me out. SE­CRETS to A suc­cess­ful re­la­tion­ship?

our re­la­tion­ship is built on re­spect and it is cen­tered on god. we make sure that we grow to­gether by build­ing on each other’s strengths to be­come the best ver­sions of our­selves. we also com­mu­ni­cate and are not afraid to express what we re­ally feel. don’t get me wrong, we have our fights, but when we are ready to lis­ten and talk to each other, we re­ally do—over a bur­rito. how DID ANDRO pro­pose? andro and I had been to­gether for seven years, and when we went to ja­pan, I thought he would pro­pose there. how­ever, I went home with­out a ring, and af­ter that I stopped ex­pected any­thing from him. A month later, dur­ing our usual christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion, we ex­changed gifts. I opened his gift and it was an iwatch that I re­ally wanted, so I was thrilled. he asked me to try it on, and when I opened the box, I found the ring. I was so sur­prised. he later told me that he knew I was ex­pect­ing a pro­posal in ja­pan, which is why he pur­posely de­layed it. tell us

about your WED­DING. I al­ways wanted to have a beach wed­ding, and we were blessed to have cel­e­brated our spe­cial week­end with the peo­ple close to our hearts. we ended up hav­ing our cer­e­mony in the morn­ing and our re­cep­tion at sun­set, and it turned out per­fectly. our guests were able to rest in be­tween and party with us all night.
