Randy Lazaro was credited for the set design, Jemi Nicdao for the styling, Jovit Sanguyo for hair, and MJ Bornales for makeup.

It was early this year when Joe, a former Pinoy Big Brother housemate, proposed to Bianca, his longtime girlfriend, during their vacation in Boracay.

In an interview on PUSH Bets Live, the then-newly engaged pair recalled their love story, with Joe saying he first laid eyes on Bianca on the set of the teleserye Doble Kara in 2016.

"Year 2016. Kakabalik ko lang from Dubai nun. Wala pa 'yung love sa utak ko nung mga panahon na 'yun. Sabi ko ayaw ko muna ng kahit sinong babae, kasi galing ako sa breakup nun eh, ng longtime girlfriend ko nung time na 'yun. So nagpapahinga ako isang beses, tapos may narinig akong ibang tao sa tent...Tapos pagtingin ko, isang mata ko lang 'yung nakabukas, sabi ko, 'Uy, chicks 'yun ah. Sino kaya 'yun?'" he recalled.

"Tapos nung mga after lunch na, nilalapitan ko na siya. Kinakausap ko na siya pero ayaw niyang makipag-usap sa akin. Ang sabi ko lang sa kanya, 'May araw ka rin sa akin.'"

Bianca shared that Joe asked for her number and Facebook account, and even offered to give her a ride home that day, but she turned him down, stressing that they just met. 

"Hello, hindi ko pa naman siya kilala nun, so bakit naman ako magpapahatid sa kanya? So sabi niya, hahanapin daw niya ako. So ako naman, hindi ako naniniwala kasi wala siyang any contact traces from me. Nagulat ako, after two-three months, nagulat ako doon sa Star Magic workshop, nandun siya sa class ko. Doon na nagsimula," she said.

According to Joe, he knew even then that Bianca was the right person for him.

"From the jump, nung nag-start kami, 'yun na 'yung goal ko, [to spend the rest of my life with her]. Nung nakita ko siya, alam kong magiging kami talaga eh. Actually, hindi pa ako ready nung time na 'yun ah dahil galing akong break up pero sobrang certain nung spirits ko na siya talaga eh. Ang daming nangyari sa amin, ang daming... kumbaga pinili namin 'yung isa't isa simula umpisa," he said.

As for Bianca, she said that she considers her fiancé an answered prayer. 

"Gusto ko noon 'yung long-term na talaga, 'yung makakasama ko habang buhay. So pinagpe-pray ko noon 'yung taong makakasundo ko talaga, 'yung makaka-swak ng personality ko. Tapos hindi ko ine-expect," she said.

"Hindi rin naman ako ready that time. Hindi ko hinahanap magka-boyfriend. Tapos 'yun 'yung perfect timing na dumating siya. Sobrang swak talaga ng personality namin, hindi mo talaga matatago, hindi mo maaalis. As in happy lang kami. Normal lang. Hindi pilit."
