With the mood this couple had and their coolness, we could say that they were able handle the pressure of being a groom and a bride on their special day real well. When we were doing some shots with Karla, she often told us “Ok na ba… Ok na… isa pa… isa pa…”. Her “kulit” attitude made our shooting time more fun! As for the groom, it is noticeable in the video that he did a very good job as well! :)
Their story started back in summer of 2002. They were classmates, and Alvin made a move to befriend Karla. Alvin purposely selected Karla to be his groupmate in one of their classes and made efforts for them to get closer and eventually courted her. They became officially together on December 2, 2012, 4pm to be exact (we’re impressed that they remembered the exact time ) They kept their relationship in secrecy for four years, because of Karla’s parents. Though it started out this way, they never thought that it would last for more than 10 years. During those long years, Alvin was able to set aside all of Karla’s bratty ways that’s why they hardly had any fights.
On April 17, 2012, when Alvin went home from a training that took place in the U.S., he proposed to Karla. Karla replied, “Now na??” (with disbelief in her eyes) He immediately answered, “Hindi pa naman kaagad…” Karla then responded “yes” and told him that it’s going to be a long engagement as both of them still have responsibilities.
After being engaged for more than two years, on the afternoon of May 26, 2012, Alvin formally asked for Karla’s hand from her parents. Truly, patience is a virtue! Here they are now, December 16, 2012. The fruit of their patience… their happy ever after! Congratulations, Alvin and Karla!
