Mark and Giselle knew each other through a common high school friend. The first time she saw him, she thought he was a happy, go-lucky, easy-going person, while he thought that she was a snob, but she was not. They got along really well and went out on their first date. It was a dinner and a couple of drinks. Since they started dating, Giselle knew he was the person she’d like to spend her life with. He takes good care of her, and he loves to tag her along when he’s running his errands.
After some time, they had their first taste of LDR when Giselle pursued her career in Dubai while Mark stayed in Manila. They were in a long-distance relationship for two years but managed the distance by constantly finding time to sneak quick calls every day between their busy schedules to update each other about their day. It was hard, especially since their time zones are opposite, but it was undoubtedly the happiest part of their day. And though Mark is miles away, he arranged a flower delivery in Dubai to ensure that Giselle gets her flowers delivered in her workplace every Valentine’s Day. Every four or five months, they get to see each other by taking a 9-hour flight. Either Mark will fly to Dubai, or Giselle will take a short leave to fly to Manila.
Fast forward a few years, Mark and Giselle are ready for the next chapter in their lives together. On February 13, 2022, the couple tied the knot and celebrated with friends and family at the gorgeous Aquila Crystal Palace. Now, take a peek at all of the joy and happiness of the day!
