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!

Paolo and Ria

December 9, 2008
Fernbrook Gardens, Alabang
Photographer: Chito Cleofas
Coordinator : Grand Weddings
Song and Artist : Built to Last by Melee

What makes a wedding successful? Is it because of the place? Is it because of the food? Is it because of the people who attended the ceremony; friends and family, or is it because everything went smoothly on that day? I bet its all of the above. But more than that, a wedding becomes a success if the two individuals getting married are in love and willing to spend the rest of their lives together. And so in a heart beat we could attest that with Paolo and Ria’s wedding, it was indeed a success.

Days before the wedding, we were exchanging messages with our couple to what song to use for their SDE, and we can’t quite put our finger on what to choose. Until luckily Paolo sent us a song title to which we have been wanting to use for a long time and based on what happened that day, we couldn’t agree more. Finally this day has come, for this is real and everything is all good. With that, truly their love is built to last.

Journey to Forever : Opening Credits

Every successful story starts with a humble beginning. Ateneo de Iloilo formerly known as Sta Maria Catholic School started out with just 10 students and now after years of high standard education, they are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a bang! Headed by Fr. Manny Uy, the school picked some of the most talented students, teachers and alumni and formed a group of artists for a one of a kind play; “Journey to Forever”. But this was no ordinary musicale, this 3 day event play directed by Mr. Kevin Pison Piamonte actually had videos for their backdrop and fill-ins. And you guessed it right! Mayad Studios is responsible for these videos. For a taste of one of the videos made for Ateneo de Iloilo, here’s the Opening Credits of the said play. Hope you guys enjoy! ;)
