Ladies and Gentlemen, Mayad Studios Co. would like to present 2 SDEs and 1 Mayad Behind the Scenes Video.

First Video : Louie and Rey

Preps: Sarabia Manor Hotel
Reception: CAP Auditorium
Photographer: Paloma Photography
Coordination: Dennis Ochoa of Events and Wedding Ensemble
Song and Artist: Before its too late by Goo Goo Dolls

At first glance, we never really expected that our groom would cry during his wedding day. But he did, Rey’s eyes welled up during Louie’s walk in the aisle. Actually, everyone got so emotional that our cameras had a feast with all the crying guests. Kodak Moment! The wedding was simple yet very intimate. Our couple was surrounded by people who loves them unconditionally. Truly a night to remember for these two. What a wonderful way to start a new chapter of their lives as husband and wife. The first SDE of our three days marathon wedding. Keep smiling everyone! :)

There must be something about the month of December that a lot of couples out there choose this month for them to get married. Probably because it is the time of year where love is generously given to everyone. Two of these individuals that I’m referring to are Earl and Baby. And even though they are already married(Civil) with two adorable kids, they still chose to sanctify their vows in the church, in front of God and their loved ones back in their hometown(Miagao). Their love is truly admirable, for it never stops, it only grows deeper and stronger. Enjoy watching our second SDE of our 3-days marathon wedding. More to come! Stay Tuned.

Melitza and Anthony

Preps: Sarabia Manor Hotel
Ceremony: San Agustine Church
Reception: CAP Auditorium
Photographer : Imagine Nation Photography by John Mateos Ong,Tiqui and Heids
Host: Monique Lopez
Make up artist : Pepoy Tancinco of Stretch Center

There are times that we really feel close to our clients and co-suppliers as well. The feeling where we could get together, laugh out loud and just purely enjoy the day. And that is what exactly happened with Melitza and Anthony’s wedding. With a very warm and fuzzy feeling during the wedding day, everything just fell into place. And even though there were little mishaps, nothing and no one could stop these two from tying the knot. And we know for a fact that they truly belong to each other and grow old together. Love is strong this Yuletide Season. So may we share this wondering feeling with you guyz as we unfold another heartstory. Happy Holidays!

Maissie @ 18 + 1

Preps and Party: Sarabia Manor Hotel
Photographer: Gem Castor
Make up artist : Pepoy Tancinco of Stretch Center

19 candles + 19 roses + 19 treasures

Yes! you’ve read it right. Maissie at 18 + 1. Here’s a treat for all our young viewers out there. After a series of wedding posts, who knew we could have a debut video in the middle of December. Although technically it was not a debut since its not the traditional age of 18 but instead it was her 19th birthday. Nevertheless it was a night of celebration filled with people who loves her dearly. Our beautiful birthday celebrant Maissie, did not consider studying in Europe as a hindrance of having a debut party here in Iloilo along with her friends and loved ones. So what better way to match her beauty and uniqueness, but to try something we’ve never done before, in terms of concept and editing style. Curious? Here’s “Maissie @ 18 + 1″ SDE. Happy Holidays everyone!

Dave and Annette

Coordinator: Amanda Tirol
Photographer: Mimi and Karl
Preps: Boracay Eco-Village Resort and Boracay Terraces Resort
Reception:Puka Beach

It’s not new to you guys that we cover and shoot weddings in Boracay and like we’ve said before, it seems like we’ve already made it like our second home. But last December 18, it did not feel like Boracay at all and yet we knew in our hearts that we’re home. For one, we were stationed at the back of Boracay and the view from our hotel room looks like we were at Tagaytay except Taal Volcano was no where in sight. Also, what made this wedding different or if I might say extra special was that we were surrounded by people whom we know and love. Like classmates and friends back when we were in school plus more. As for our couple Dave and Annette, we certainly adore them..couldn’t ask for a better couple. Both families, Filipino and Irish were in their highest spirits,bubbly and fun loving. And who says you can’t wear your Havaianas along with your wedding dress? Certainly not our bride. So for now, lights off please..as we unveil Dave and Annette’s “on the other side of Boracay” SDE. Cheers!!!

Alex and Elaine

Preps: Sarabia Manor Hotel
Church: St. Joseph Church
Reception: Puerto Real
Photographer : Vagonozze Studios
Song: Time after Time

Wouldn’t it be nice to find someone who shares the same interests with you? Someone whom you could talk to about anything and everything under the sun? What if both of you have the the same job? Wouldn’t life be so much easier? We know Alex and Elaine could share a thing or two, on how it truly feels having the same profession and sharing the same love at the same time. And so, if you are wondering why the doctors were out last December 17, watch Alex and Elaine’s SDE to see for yourself. Hold on to your seats everyone because the doctors are in…IN-LOVE thats is.Enjoy!
