What’s in a wedding? Everything. That is, just about every single happening that fabricates the couple’s story of love that’s about to share the very first day of the rest of their lives bound as one.
With the keenest of senses and full-geared creativity, we made details matter especially for our endearing couple, Hubert and Joy. Amidst the brewing pressure and painstaking SDE production, it had been a smooth sail through the course of events, for which we are grateful to the cooperation and warmth of the couple and their families, the friendly workmanship of other suppliers and such an enthralling optimism from the guests.
Like all things fine and fancy, we had our share of ruckus and maladies as we cruised through time and tension. Well appreciated is the remarkable artistic eye and knack for shooting and video editing by renowned Indie film director, Mr.Oscar Nava (Timawa meets Delgado), with whom we were privileged to work with on this wedding. Heightened with motivation by the drama of the occasion, Fiel was in full swing working mode as he tussled with the SDE scene after scene, which had been rewarding enough at the end as we had beaten the race for show time.
Get the feel of romance in our emotionally-driven SDE of Hubert and Joy. Check it out to see and believe what’s in a wedding… To our warm-hearted couple, we send out the best of wishes!

For the past few weddings we’ve featured in our blog, we’ve been pretty honest that we’re always looking for new avenues to explore or go the extra mile just to make the best SDE we can for our lovely couples. But last Saturday has got to be the one of the most challenging weddings we’ve ever covered. Alvin, started editing the SDE as late as reception time because he was an eager beaver shooting (glides) the couple and the happenings mostly during preps and ceremony. Kudos to him for that since this was actually a tight call for us. We’ve worked with our blood sweat and tears all the way through. And despite of all the mishaps and limitations presented to us during that day, we fought tooth and nail just to present our SDE on time, and at the end..everything was all worth it. Boy-Boy, our uber gorgeous bride and Gem-Gem, our very charming groom made all our hard work worth it. We love you guyz. And now we are pleased as punch to present to you our latest SDE especially made for BoyBoy and GemGem. Cheers!

Wonders never ceased to us Mayad team for the past 2 years and still counting. We have been truly blessed on ALL our couples especially our beautiful brides.And true to our word, Max and Sarah are no exceptions. During preps, the ever so cute and bubbly Sarah was on pins and needles as she kept on telling people that she was quite nervous, so when we asked her if she’s gonna cry, she just simply smiled and said no. Opposite to that though during her walk at the ceremony, Sarah wasn’t able to contain her happiness and of course Max must have been on the same page with Sarah. One of the most emotional walks we ever had. They say they have been together as a couple for 8 years yet sweetness never seemed to fade between these two love birds. Sarah even had a surprise song number especially for Max during reception. Hats off to Max and Sarah! So without any further ado, we serve you our latest same day edit, feast your eyes on our technically speaking first traditional Chinese/Filipino wedding. Enjoy!

If you have been religiously following our blog you will notice that we do our best not to just jump on the bandwagon, and we hope we are doing our job well. We keep our nose to the grindstone to deliver nothing but the freshest yet heartwarming SDEs for all our couples. And Jane and Gerald was no exception to that. For the past few days or even weeks for that matter, we have been brainstorming on what song best fitted for our lovely couple. And so we rolled up our sleeves and began searching the net, at first we thought of something Rnb. Days passed we got nothing but songs that has a lot of rapping, ‘uhuh’ and ‘yeah’ beats and mtvs with uber sexy girls (not that we don’t enjoy watching these videos) and only up to the last minute that we finally hit the spot, its not a Rnb song though and we are not even quite sure of the genre but we have a gut feeling that its just perfect for them. Good thing Jane and Gerald trusted us with this one and since their wedding was quite special for us. Why? Its because they chose San Agustin Church for their ceremony venue and just for the info of everybody, its the same church where Mayad’s first ever wedding coverage and SDE took place. Brings back good old memories (especially for Fiel and Alvin) and how time really flies. Sigh! So why don’t we start the ball rolling as we present to you Jane and Gerald’s SDE. Hope you guys like this one. Cheers!
Thanks and big love to Jane and Gerald for trusting us to shoot your wedding and also for allowing us to choose the song to use for your SDE. We really enjoyed your wedding plus the priest who gave your singing homily was awesome! I bet we will have our Last Song Syndrome with Songs from Lobo and “Only You” by Sam Milby for a long time.

Ordinary is the exact opposite word to describe the wedding we are about to share with you. “Old Hollywood look”, that was our requirement for the video when we talked to our bride, Althea few weeks ago. And that was our intention especially when she said that she wanted us to use a Beatles song for her SDE, although last minute we agreed on changing it to a beach boys’ song. And now, we present to you a super one of a kind wedding with a non traditional color black as their motif, here’s Althea and Amarind’s SDE video. And just a little trivia for you guys, this is the first wedding that we ever felt we belong; in terms of attire that is. Why? You’ll realize later..Enjoy!
To Althea and Amarind, it was really a pleasure working with you and meeting you guyz, was truly an honor. Thank you for trusting and letting us experience this extraordinary wedding. No rain could stop this memorable event. So don’t worry baby.
