From focus production: Michael-Kim Vineland Estates Winery Wedding
Mike and Kim wanted their wedding to be intimate and romantic with only close friends and families, they decided to go with a rustic wedding style in a winery setting (it’s simple but elegant). They like outdoors a lot and they really appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature, so their decors were as natural as possible. Their theme for the wedding is our TRAVELS, as they both love to travel around the world. Ever since they met, they’ve traveled every year to different countries, to explore different cultures, different food and appreciate all these beautiful landscapes around the world.
How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.
We first met back in summer of 2010 at work at the Toronto East General Hospital. I was working as a resource nurse in mental health when a patient coded. I went upstairs to respirology floor where Kim was working to grab some IV supplies. Although it was very rushed, we had a quick glance at each other. I guess you can say that there was a spark between us two. Right after that evening, I was so eager to be assigned to Kim’s unit just to see him again. By fall of 2010, I took a nursing job and started working in respirology floor and I got to work with Kim a lot more.
I proposed to Kim during our trip to the Philippines. On January 7th 2016, on top of Mount Taraw Cliff, El Nido (Palawan), I asked Kim to marry me. I planned everything and the day went very well. At the break of dawn, we climbed the highest peak of Mount Taraw Cliff. After reaching the highest peak of El Nido, overlooking the many islands of Palawan, I proposed to Kim at sunrise. Kim had absolutely no idea at all and he was so surprised to see me go down on one knee and asked him to marry me.
After our slow descent from the top of the cliff, we went back to our seaside cottage to update our families and friends back home in Canada. That afternoon, we had lunch at Nacpan Beach and took a long stroll along the beach and went skinny dipping in the ocean. After all, we were the only ones on this long stretch of white sand beach and crystal clear turquoise water. Before the sun goes down, we hiked this hill beside the beach and watched the most amazing sunset we have ever seen.
Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
Stay true to yourselves. In planning our wedding, we used social media a lot and numerous online blogs to get ideas and inspirations for our own wedding. This can be overwhelming as there’s a lot of information out there. Oftentimes, you get this pressure to copy what the other couples did and do certain things at your wedding because it “looked amazing” online.
Sometimes, you may even feel like you gotta do better! Also, due to frustrations and time-constraints, you may feel like you gotta do what you gotta do, because you had enough. When you get to this stage, you need to stop and ask yourselves: “is this us?”. You still gotta do YOU! No matter how much you try to control things and pressure yourselves to do things in a certain way, there are things that we can’t control and all we have to do is to accept them and embrace them as they happen (and this applies to our lives in general).
Love all the imperfections of your perfect day, as these are the things that you will remember the most. Our wedding may not be perfect for some people, but it is perfect for us. Regardless of whatever happened that day, at the end of the day, I say to my husband: “it’s me and you, just us two” – and that is what really matters!
