"We met 4 years ago on a dating site. We were living such busy lives; he just moved from Minesotta to California and I just started a new career. We didn't want to meet people in bars, so we decided to do online dating. Many awkward, weird and funny dates later, we eventually found each other and the rest is history.
Our anniversary is on the first of March, we are having a big wedding celebration in the Philippines in July, but we wanted to make our anniversary date special. We are the opposite of each other; I'm all about big, grand wedding while he just wanted something small and intimate. Since I'm getting my big, grand wedding in July, this backyeard wedding was his dream wedding. And March 1st is when we actually signed our papers to be officially married! We had my sister ordain the wedding and officiate it.
All the decors in the backyard were the labor of love of our families and even my bouquet was put together by my mother-in-law from flowers we bought in a local grocery store.
My husband I are such a unique couple. He is an introvert and simple guy and I'm a talkative and extrovert girl who likes grand things. We are so different that we do bicker a lot and we have to compromise almost all the time. But at the end of the day, our love for each other is stronger than our differences. That's why we're still together and we continue to love each other in our own unique ways." - Carla Mae Cuisia
