Time and time again, people declare love as more than just a word. Many of us do the craziest things for love and we often make the reason on why we do it because of love. However the simplest words like “ I love you” could already turn the whole course of our lives; from living to an ordinary day and turning it to a magical and colorful life. Basic yet it means everything. When love is simple and pure that is when we feel loved the most. Be touched as you witness another love story unfold through the wedding video made especially for Moses and Jojo. Cheers!

Looking at the second hand of our watch as it goes tick tock, we see time pass by and ponder upon thoughts like “Why are we here and what is our purpose?” Often we seek these answers by searching for that certain reason or even someone that could actually make us feel and realize that we we are meant to do. Some are destined to mold the future of the next generation or to bring world peace, roles like that. But most of the time it’s not usually the case. Some exist by simply just loving someone and making that certain someone feel important. It may not be as grand as the legends or the heroes we read and see in tv news or books but nevertheless, it’s still an important role. And when you find that certain someone who you could have an impact with, to love and hold, do not let go.

Breathe in love and smile your way through as we present the wedding photos of Owens and Vee. Enjoy!

In this journey we call life we get to meet different kinds of people and experience different kinds of challenges. Once in a while we pause for a moment and then we do our best to keep that moment still and let it stay for even just a little bit longer. Then you wonder what you have done in your past life to deserve what you have now. But then if the feeling is great all you could do is just cherish and embrace it and hope that it will last forever. With Sharlin and Robot everything came just at the right moment. What they have done in the past doesn’t matter because what they have is now and now is just perfect. Despite fame, popularity and the crazy schedule of the Asian singer Robot, he was still blessed by meeting the sweet and beautiful Sharlin. Catch their wedding video and love the moment – their moment!

Mayad Boracay : Hannah and Zuriel “Miraculous Journey”

Directed by : Kristopher “King” Caldera

“One year ago today, the worst thing that happened to me was the beginning of the best days of my life.” – Hannah

Day by day we witness life as it unfolds before our eyes. We see the world transform as seasons change and people evolve. Through experience, we learn and grow to become a better individual. Although sometimes it is a bit more than what we expect. But how can one’s life change in a instant? What if destiny teases us by taking away the person we cherish the most? If we have known earlier, will we show more love? Will we express our affection and will not take them for granted? What if it will all be too late? Do we ask for a second chance? Do we pray for a miracle?

Exactly one year ago, the life of Zuriel turned upside down when he heard the accident that happened to Hannah when she was in Singapore. It was one of the hardest times knowing that any minute death can take away the life of the woman he initially planned to marry even before the chaos. But God is good, for they were given a second chance, second chance to live and to love. What happened to Hannah in Singapore was heartbreaking for Zuriel but it was also one amazing miracle that made their bond stronger than it ever was and it was sealed in front of God and their loved ones. Melt your heart with one of our most touching love stories yet to be told through our photos and video made especially just for them. Miracles do happen. Believe!

Here’s the story of what really happened in Singapore as told by the groom, Zuriel :

“On July 25, 2013, Hannah was supposed to fly home from Singapore and I had a surprise marriage proposal waiting for her. Neither of us knew that we were going to be in the shock of our lives. At 7 in the morning, I received a distress call from Sonjan, Hannah’s brother, asking for help saying she fell. Thinking it was a mere sprain or a gash, I called my cousin Ivy who is a nurse in Singapore telling her to give assistance so Hannah can fly home and I can proceed with the plan. She calls me back a couple of hours later saying Hannah’s CT Scan was negative, but she couldn’t fly home. That’s when it hit me that something really bad has happened. It was then explained to me that Hannah opened a lift door at the 5th floor of her hostel, only to fall down the shaft as the car was parked at the 1st floor. She sustained an 8-cm cut on her head, 5 broken ribs, punctured lungs, and a fractured foot. I texted my family and friends that the surprise proposal is postponed indefinitely, and I booked the first flight I could find to Singapore, which was a 9 pm one.

On the plane, I kept awake anxious of 2 things: 1) If she has amnesia, how do I go about wooing her again? and; 2) If she’s paraplegic, how do I adjust my schedule to give time to take care of her and wheel her around? Thankfully, these fears were put to rest as the first words that came out of Hannah’s mouth was, “Thank you for coming” and though she started on critical condition, her health progressed for the better, faster than any of us, even the doctors, thought. Her recovery from this fall is nothing short of a miracle. Even more amazing was her inner beauty and strength. Seeing her smile everyday was a ray of hope. She had a glow and she brightened up the hospital with it.

She got out of the hospital 10 days after the fall, but had to stay another month to let her lungs heal for the flight home. With the help of friends and family, we settled her and though I had to come back to Manila after two weeks there in Singapore, I promised to come back and fly her home when her lungs can take it. On my last night there, I took her out on a date at Gardens By the Bay, and there, took a knee and asked her to marry me.” – Zuriel
