Preps: Fraser Place
Church: Santuario De San Antonio
Reception: Blue Leaf Silk Pavillon
The title became the main focus for Manny and Tonel's Onsite Video Presentation. It was the focus of the whole event as well. The moment you step in the four bedroom suite at Fraser, you would feel that love is in the air yet a certain mystery still lingers.
Maybe because Tonel and Manny are both pleasant people to begin with. When I first met Tonel, she has a certain aura same as that of an innocent child. She giggled on simple laughable stories, she blushed everytime she mentioned Manny. One would realize that if all doctors are like her, every patient would be cured the moment she speaks :)
She had a dream wedding in mind. She wanted it flawless, awesome and unforgettable. She got the wedding that she deserved that day of March 12. And I guess suppliers would agree, that they are a very considerate and generous couple. They actually made sure that all suppliers were treated well, fed well and relaxed. ( It is seldom that you find a couple treat their suppliers Starbucks drinks after lunch -kasi daw mainit -thanks guys. It's a small gesture that meant a lot to your team)
Here are some shots of their wedding taken by Mangored grabbed from Tonel's multiply site. :)
We bought these accesory together during our final meeting. Actually the final meeting was more of a supposedly bonding moment for us. Unfortunately, my dad in law was having a hard time in the hospital that same day and time. Tonel was very kind to let me go back there instead. After buying these stuff ( I actually thought of her the moment I saw these . :)
Tonel was never the typical bride. Colored shoes and purse for brides? They suited her very well. Thanks to Niko of Veluz, it was executed in a very tasteful manner.
Tina Lirag of Newyorker created the fabulous entourage dresses in fuchsia.
A detailed bride deserves a detailed designer. This opulent back detail design was a Veluz creation.
While the bride is busy preparing in the morning, his groom and the guys had their own photo session at the suite's own pocket garden
True beauty was brought out by Madge Lejano, Xeng Zulueta of Make up Studio and their team
As Tonel said, this was her La Greta Moment :)
This was a big secret....... Which one? ( the veil ). It will remain one. I can't divulge the mystery :)
The bridal walk?... Simply perfect
A glimpse of the post ceremony activity which David spearheads.
At the reception, guests were welcomed by beautiful flowers done by April and Karen Yu

Now this one is a main secret of the bride and me. :) The moment their car arrived in Blue Leaf, we asked the guests to welcome them and have Tonel's gift for Manny unveiled
And now, what is Love? Afterall, that's the title of this post right? Find out as you watch this onsite AVP by Mayad Studios ( First time I worked with them, I was impressed- so young yet so gifted).. and learn why Tonel still watches the same Onsite over and over.
