We almost missed posting about this real-life wedding. Their story was emailed to us by Jasmine Mendiola who was the make-up artist in the said wedding. The excerpt below is from an article of the same title:
(via Phil. Star) As Rocky (Ramon Miguel B. Abaño) and Sarah (Sarah Amelyn G. Bautista) exchanged “I dos” last January 22, they not only shared their vows in front of families and friends, they shared their thoughts and words on love and life with their first co-authored book, “Under the January Moon“ (published by Central Books Publishing).

from the bride: Our wedding was a Prose & Poetry-themed wedding cum book launch cum fundraising project. My husband and I launched our first co-authored book entitled “Under the January Moon.” We gave the books to our guests as souvenirs. At the same time, the guests were encouraged to buy a book for a friend and the whole amount goes to two institutions here in our country that focus on the development of children in depressed communities: one is SAGIP (Sagipin ang Galing, Isip at Pangrap), a child & youth development program of Gawad Kalinga (means “to give care”); and the other one is Santa Maria Eufrasia Daycare Center, a school in the mountains of Sariaya, Quezon, practicing the Waldorf teaching method. Donations were made under the name of the donor guest. This advocacy angle of our wedding was our way of doing our share in making the world a little bit brighter for children. It’s our lifetime commitment to love not just each other but those who are in need.
Bravo Rocky & Sarah!
