Just cliqued! ( Vice and Shine 1.26.08)

Let me start by saying that this booth really rocks !!!! I have appreciated it so much, I decided to use it as part of Sunshine and Vice's story title.
It was one of the unusual mornings that I had to go to the hotel an hour and half before the actual call time. Sunshine and I was supposed to have our final turnover several days before the wedding but last minute preparations and finalizations hindered us from doing so.

Shine is a very bubbly girl ( Oh she still looks like daddy's little girl for me). Being the only child might somehow explain why she still looks very much like a baby.

I remembered her mom on or first meeting, she was very moved with the conversation, she got so teary eyed. But today, I'll remember her dad more. How does it really feel that in a few hours, you'll give away your most precious daughter even to the most deserving man? He even noticed that the hair spray is named Citre SHINE.... even mentioned that it's really meant for his daughter . :)

The bride was made beautiful by Jesy and Steve.

Vice, as the parents mentioned is very protective of Sunshine. They feel assured that he will take care of their daughter. Maybe because he also came from generations of very loving and composed people. Here, Vice is receiving some buff buff :)

While his Grandpa receives a buff buff from Grandma. :)

Sunshine's bouquet was beautifully executed by Sunday.

They chose the Makati Parks and Gardens floating gazebo for their ceremonies and the artist pavillon for their reception.

Our first time to be in the area, we thought it was an ordinary park, with ordinary people around. It is afterall, a park :)

Celebrities at their own rights. The team John Ong took really great shots.

And the park was made even more special with the presence of very imprortant people.

Here are the reception highlights:

Both parents prepared a special Audio Visual presentation for the newlyweds during their welcoming remarks. They compiled kiddie photos of Vice and Shine. Sunshine even giggled when she heard her parents singing you are my sunshine on the background.

The parents, in return, received special gifts from the couple. The bride gave her parents a stuffed toy. Having slept with them for more than 20 years, she does not want her parents to miss her much. To signify her presence, she gave them this doll to embrace as they sleep.

The groom gave his parents a candle to symbolize his gratitude for guiding him all throughout the years. Aside from the fact, of course that his mom really collects candles.

The first dance eventually led to the couple's prosperity dance. Many guests showed their affection by pinning money to the couple.

The singles games were all fun as well.

Dad of the bride led the crowd in singing her a happy birthday song. January 27 is sunshine's birthday. First birthday as a married woman to be exact.

The onsite presentation done by MG didital was awesome. Everyone was caught awed with this presentation.

Its not surprising to see them recording every minute detail of the wedding.

Chocolate fountain is still a hit for all ages. :)

And of course, everyone was cliqueing. :) Inside and outside the photobooth.

We're not sure but it seems like it was an auspicious day for a wedding. David even caught another friend photographer, Anthony of East Digital taking a lobby shot for their bride.

This day is really intended for happiness......

Speaking of happiness, here's my uploaded photo of the day/ week. David here is with our nephew Emperor. Our happiness comes from a simple smile from this kid. ( Sana amin na lang hahaha )

After grueling weeks of "settling down", I finally have the time for what I've been meaning to add to what I said during my thank you speech (iyakin kasi, wala na halos nasabi hehe)

Vicey and I truly thank the Lord for having introduced your Team to us. As I relayed to my fellow W@Wies, I may be any coordinator’s worst nightmare. The turnover was a mishap. We forgot to finalize a lot of things with you. Yet, your Team managed to turn everything to a million-bucks-worth of wedding. ALL of our guests were amazed with how organized your Team was (para daw mga CIA agents)… (Oh and good-looking din hehe.) Chika ko lang na there were some guys who asked if you are still “available”; some ladies also asked the same about David… Siyempre super tawa kami ng Mao…. Haller! “They’re kind of committed… to each other…. For life.” Hehe, then we all laughed.

We will FOREVER cherish the oh-so-memorable couple’s exit and dove release you have prepared for Vicey and I. Our families were really happy with it. Naging point of comparison tuloy during my cousin’s wedding in Fernbrook last Feb 16. (It was unfortunate that they didn’t get your Team, sudden kasi wedding plans nila.) The coordinators daw were not presentable, and the couple’s exit was –blah-.

Mao told me that I’ll be planning their Silver Wedding celebration (4 years to go pa naman hehe), and hindi daw pwedeng hindi kayo ang Coordinating Team nun. Again, Vicey and I, together with our families and the hundreds of very satisfied guests are wowed and very much grateful to you, David, and the rest of your Team for a fantabulously spectacular feat during our Big Day. It’s not surprising that a lot of W@Wies have asked for your number.


I just want to share that after we got back from the honeymoon… the mysterious “bridal garter” suddenly appeared in the box of my Bridal Gown. Then, my tita told me she left the lighters for the unity candle in her bag. Please thank Ms. ***(oops I forgot her name… sorry) for coming up with the improvised garter and match for the Unity Candle.
