“I was in tears that finally, we are getting married and all the hard work paid off”
Mike Jerick Miralles and Hazelle Mackmaw were engaged on February 2018 and set to marry in April 2020. After postponing their wedding once due to the pandemic, the couple set a new date which unfortunately fell upon yet another MECQ status. Finally, they secured September 19, 2020 as a wedding date but their orginal church broke to them the news that it would close for a 15-day quarantine.
“As much as Mike and I loved that church, the logical thing to do was to transfer to a different church as everything was already set–the booking of the restaurant, cake, airbnb, makeup, photo and video, the coordinator, our families, and our little wedding tribe,” Haze says. With just a week left, the couple changed their ceremony venue and were wed at St. Jerome Emiliani & Sta. Susana Parish. The Miralles’ reception was held at Neil’s Kitchen.
“We found comfort in each other, that constant communication and that eagerness to be together as husband and wife. Surprisingly during the whole repeated postponement of our wedding and modifying our whole wedding plan, Mike and I seldom fought,” Haze says. She adds, “We did our assigned tasks and updated one another with the progress up until the day before our wedding. We did everything as a team, with the help of our coordinator as well.”
Haze says, “Mike was happy and a bit teary eyed, but I on the other hand knew that I would cry. After Tears were already forming as I got out of the car until I walked down the aisle. I was crying until I reached the altar. My parents were crying, most of the people inside the church were in tears as well. They were tears of joy–I was in tears that finally, we are getting married and all the hard work paid off. Finally we are here officially getting our blessing from the church.”
