2009 has finally sprung. And what will the year of the Ox bring us? Possibilities are endless. Here are some of the fearless predictions that I’ve seen in my crystal ball:

1. Lindsay Lohan will start dating men.
2. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will adopt another baby.
3. More reality tv series.
4. A couple from Philippine Showbiz will break up.
5. Philippine actress will get pregnant.
6. Celso and Cheryl will live happily ever after.

Ok ok. Scrap those 1-5 predictions. For the only thing I’m sure of that will EVENTUALLY AND ACTUALLY happen is prediction number 6. No doubt on that one. Even their friends and family could attest to that. For we have all witnessed new hope and love. And we know for a fact that their new found life together does not stop this year or anytime soon for that matter. Their new found love will last for a lifetime.

So why don’t we kick this year right by presenting to you our first SDE for the year 2009. Straight from the land of Atiatihan, Kalibo Aklan…Ladies and Gentlemen…Cheryl and Celso’s SDE. Happy 2009 to all!

Finally! We never expected we can pull it off. It was not an easy task. But we did it. Same Day Edit in HD!

For our last wedding for the year 2008, we certainly got lucky with our couple. Lorena and Empoy were both sweet and charming. With just a heartbeat, you will certainly love these two lovebirds. We already expected for a fact that it would be an intimate wedding since it’s in Boracay. But what we didn’t expect was that almost everyone had a role during the wedding day itself. Everyone had a great time, including us. No Rain and No Brown Out could stop this wedding! Special thanks to Smiles and Clicks, for helping us pull this off during show time. Whew! What a way to end 2008!

First Video : Louie and Rey

Preps: Sarabia Manor Hotel

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!
