Bride’s name: Grace Victoria Nebrida Tutaan

Groom’s name: Erwin Toledo Domingo

Occupations: Grace works in human resources and recruiting and Erwin works in finance.

How they met: The two met at a friend’s surprise engagement party.

The proposal: During a trip to San Francisco, Erwin surprised Grace with a proposal on the 42nd floor of the Loews Regency Hotel overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.

Number of guests: 250

Wedding colors: Blush pink and gold champagne

Most memorable moment…

For her: “The surprise wedding gift that my husband customized for me – which was a photobook of pictures throughout the years together.”

For him: “Unveiling my bride at the ceremony and accepting her hand in marriage from her father.”

Funniest moment: “During the ceremony, once the 3-year-old flower girl reached the end of the aisle, she dumped the basket of flowers over her head.”

Unique aspects of the day: During the reception, Erwin surprised Grace by sharing a story-telling video highlighting special moments from the couple’s wedding-planning journey, including the engagement proposal. Also, the custom-made light-projected monogram that beautifully displayed the couple’s first names on the dance floor added an elegant touch.

Three words that best describe their day:
“Romantic, magical and elegant.”

If they had the chance to do it again, what they would do differently: “Incorporate an ‘exit getaway’ at the end of the ceremony.”

What Grace loves most about her husband: “He continues to find ways to romantically surprise me, even when I think he has no time.”

What Erwin loves most about his wife: “Her selflessness to put others first before herself.”

Best advice for a couple planning a wedding: “Hire both a videographer and a photographer to capture those priceless moments – it’s worth the money!”
