Real Wedding: Carmela & Alejandro

The courtship between Carmela Tan, 37, and Alejandro Parra, 32, started appropriately on the court. While playing in a volleyball league in 2006, Philippine-born Carmela was asked to sub in on Colombian-born Alejandro’s team, but it wasn’t until 2009, after a post-game session at The Dog in Pacific Beach, that they began dating. During a New Year’s Day stroll along Tourmaline Beach, Alejandro popped the question with a Spanish poem he penned himself. Carmela said, “Si!”—and later, “I do” in front of 138 friends and family members during an enchanting, cross-cultural celebration at Twin Oaks Garden Estate.
