Patrick + Avry (Baclayon Church | Panglao Island Nature Resort Bohol)

“(Bohol’s) overall atmosphere evoked warmth and a calming effect on my ragged and burnt out soul.” – Avry

Panglao Island Nature Resort Wedding

When Avry was in college, she went on a trip to Bohol and fell in love with the island, the people and the culture. She was entering her last year of college and was concerned about her future — her moving to another country after graduation. At the last church she visited, Baclayon Church, she prayed that if she was lucky enough to find a partner in life, she promised to return to Bohol as thanks to all the blessings that God has given her and celebrate at the place where it all started.

“…I prayed for a good life, a fulfilling career, and safe passage when we migrate. I even asked the Lord that, if He so wishes, to someday find my partner in life and my forever after. In return, I promised to return to Bohol and pledge my love and loyalty to the man who I will spend my life with. As promised and in fulfillment of my life-long dream, I am here once again with my partner, bestfriend, and my heart.”
