Team ReyVan's Romantic Wedding in Bohol

 Team ReyVan

HOW IT ALL STARTED. It all began in 2001 when they became BS Nursing freshmen students at the University of Bohol. 

Although he shifted to Political Science the following year & pursued his Law degree at HNU, sparks had flown & the die had been cast already. 

After getting her BS Nursing diploma & passing the board exams, she eventually flew to the United States in 2008 to follow her dreams. 

Barely a year after landing a nurse’s job in the US, she went home for their civil wedding and together, they left for Houston, Texas to settle there

JOVIAL JANUARY WEDDING. Their January 7 church wedding bespeaks of their commitment to seal their lifetime vows in the presence of God, family & friends.
