Amy, wedding planner at Sugar & Spice Events had this to say about the wedding … ‘TJ and Maria met in the most unique of ways, at an airport, walking past each other. Just that short moment was enough to spark a love that would last. TJ mustered up the courage to ask this beautiful Filipino lass for her number and as luck would have it, Maria was arriving into Penang for work (she is a flight attendant). Who knew a stopover in Penang would turn into dinner dates and every time she had a flight to Penang, Maria was super excited to meet this Penang boy. Fast forward a few years of long distance relationship, Maria decided to leave Dubai and move to Penang to say ‘I do’ to TJ. With their diverse cultures and up-bringing, TJ and Maria always made it a point to put love first in any disagreement. The happy couple also chose Hotel Equatorial Penang as their wedding venue because that was the hotel Maria would stay at every time she had a layover in Penang. The wedding day was even more fun than usual as there was a strong team representing the Philippines and they really had a ball of a time with the Chinese gate-crashing games. The beautiful bride and her bride squad also surprised TJ with a flash mob dance after their First Dance. Let’s just say, all eyes were on the dance floor. Love happens in places and ways we never thought possible. It serves as a reminder to us to arrive early for any flight and do not look shabby when traveling! Haha!’
