Two years after her memorable email to me, it was the best time to finally meet her. On her wedding day, as their photographer! Vanessa and Gerard’s wedding was a splendidly lovely affair filled with incredible light, tears, laughter, and much love. I’ve always thought I’d only see a laid back, magical garden ceremony somewhere in the hills of Napa Valley or Sonoma County, only to discover one unfolding here right in the middle of the hills of Antipolo.

Nina and Dolph’s wedding was one of the weddings that I would always remember because of 3 things: the bride had 3 gorgeous shoes, their church was simply the Sistine Chapel of the Philippines, and it was the first time I actually saw how nice fire lanterns were :) Beyond these, their wedding even had a ton more interesting detail if you look at the photos closely.

It was a joy working with supplier friends Paolo Feliciano (main photographer), K by Cunanan (catering), and Dylan Gozum of Vatel Manila (flowers) on this wedding, as well as a pleasure working with Chug Cadiogan (video), Voltaire Zalamea of Events and Concepts (coordination), and Francois Roxas (makeup).
