WaWparazzi: Luis Alandy and Joselle Fernandez Wedding

In Blog, Celebrity Wedding, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Things I loved about this wedding : – The venue is breathtaking, with the lush greens and beautifully decorated by Gideon Hermosa. It couldn’t get more romantic than that! – The beautiful romantic gown of the bride, Joselle, made by Jazel Sy. It was a very feminine and flattering cut, with the French lace that made the gown soft and just so pretty. – How the rain stopped just when the wedding was starting. God’s hand was really felt all throughout. – The beautiful rustic setting at the reception area with touches of “The Notebook” inspired prenuptial shoot. This was seen in the kind of guestbook made by Niceprint + the boat gallery of prenuptial photos. Simply wow! – The handwritten note/ vow of Luis Alandy. When this was posted, everyone loved how sweet the message was plus how beautiful his handwriting is! – Their sweet gifts for each other. Luis gave Joselle a complete series of TV show Friends, which happened to be Joselle’s all time favorite. Joselle, on the other hand, gave Luis a surprise painting she made herself. Such a sweet act isn’t it? – The simplicity of the cake – naked, effortless and just simply pretty. …

WaWParazzi: Ali Khatibi and Cristine Reyes

In Blog, Celebrity Wedding, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Since day one when I met Ali and Cristine they have made it clear how they want their wedding to be simple. In fact, the first plan was to have it at the backyard of their new home. I was not sure at that point if we could pull that off given their celebrity status. But to my surprise, that was exactly what happened last January 27 in Balesin island. They planned to delay the big wedding because they had a lot on their plate right now, then they called last December to have an intimate wedding in Balesin along with the pictorial. With just 24 guests, no fancy gown or designer shoes, no fireworks or live music, no make up artist or hairstylist, no ceremony or reception grand set up, even sans all that’s grand, but the wedding came out totally totally perfect.   January 26 Day started so early around 6am and we flew to Balesin island with just 24 guests, 5 crew from nice print team. There was no other supplier in tow but our team :):) We landed in the beautiful island and shortly after lunch we started to explore the island and prepared for our …

The back story VJ and I would casually talk about his plans to propose few weeks after the wedding of John Prats and Isabel Oli last May. He had great exciting plans for the proposal. There were a lot of ideas that came up but at the end of it all, one thing was evident–VJ wanted it to be very special for Camille. He was very sure of three things. One, it had to be in Nayomi resort, which is owned by the Prats family, because this is a place close to the hearts of the Prats family, including Camille Two, VJ wants all the family members and close friends of Camille to be present.

Last June 26, 2015, Elvis Gutierrez, one of the six kids of power couple Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama tied the knot in Santuario de San Antonio Parish in Forbes Park. Groom Elvis was emotional and teary-eyed all throughout the processional. His parents Eddie and Anabelle and Richard look on. In the speech of Richard the best man, he mentioned that 3.5 months in a year, Elvis and twins Richard/Raymond become triplets since they were born only nine months apart. Elvis and Alexa have been a couple for the last nine years and the most challenging times were the time when Alexa had to move to the US to study. Elvis would often visit her there during those times. They said the long-distance relationship made their relationship stronger. The bride wore an Albert Andrada creation What a huge gigantic beautiful cake it was! The Bethany dream cakes creation drew inspiration from the concept that the bride herself chose. It’s a cake that’s cut in the middle adorned with soooo many fresh pastel flowers. Alexa hand picked her bridesmaids and maids of honor consisting of family and best friends. Her now sister-in-law Ruffa was one of the maids of honor. Also part of the entourage …

In Blog, Celebrity Wedding, What's New by Roche LeonorLeave a Comment

We all loved the National Museum-themed pre-wedding shoot of director Paul Soriano and actress Toni Gonzaga.  But the couple has another idea in mind–a second pre-wedding shoot with Pat Dy. We asked Pat Dy for some inside scoop regarding this pre-wedding. shoot. When did the couple approach you for the pre-nup shoot? Matagal na from the date Toni asked if I was free for her wedding. Sadly, I wasn’t available before so we discussed about having the prenup shoot. What happened in the first encounter? We’ve been friends way before pa. We shot a few covers of Toni. We met and shot Paul before, too. What was the theme of the shoot or video? What is the significance of the theme? To be as relaxed and simple as possible since I’ve shot Toni always with a glam team for her covers etc. Para maiba and Paul is a very chill, laidback person. He is more comfy shooting in a relaxed environment. Other themes that were discarded? It was just that theme or another concept theme that didn’t push through for another editorial magazine. How were they as subject of the photo/video? What were your impressions? We just had fun since I know both of them already from previous shoots. I do know …

WaWparazzi: The John Prats-Isabel Oli Wedding

In Blog, Celebrity Wedding, W@Wparazzi, What's New by weddingLeave a Comment

Who doesn’t remember the flash-mob style surprise proposal of John Prats to Isabel Oli last Sept. 24, 2014? It all started there, and the wedding planning began. The concept of the Four Seasons is something accidental. I was discussing with John and Liv (Isabel’s nickname) about the concept for the prenuptial shoot and it started with the idea that they will shoot in the US. Since there was a planned Prats family trip to the US, and Isabel was going to join them, there we two agenda for the trip: 1) to find the perfect wedding gown and 2) to do their prenup shoot. And because the shoot will be in Big Bear, it was going to be a winter-themed shoot. From there, we all agreed that we would do a four seasons-themed prenup so there will be a connection amongst the four concepts. We all thought it was a great beautiful and unique concept that we decided to use it for the whole wedding theme. Below is copy of the invitation made by Print Divas, where the Four Seasons theme was shown, too. The couple went on a very strict diet since January 2015. They were both into boxing …

In Celebrity Wedding by wedding_blogLeave a Comment

We asked wedding photographers among our FB friends to send us their three best shots taken from prenup sessions and/or actual wedding shoots. But before we present our top choices, we need to grab this chance to extend our appreciation to all the photographers who participated — both well known and up-and-coming – for trusting us with their choice images from last year. Choosing only 11 photographs out of the countless sent to us was no easy task. Afterall, the photographers sent us the best very of their best. Few images below already made an impact on us the first time we saw them prior to this feature. Yet they still stand out among the many submissions. While more than half in this collection we only saw as we were compiling which images to include in this feature. Our selection process is not based on any technical criteria. We judge them based solely on the picture’s ‘wow factor.’ You’ll be surprised that most of the shots here are locations just within the Metro. While the more ‘exotic’ looking locations are just a day trip away from Manila! Without much ado, here we present to you our Top 11 choices for …

11 Best Vows of 2011!

In Celebrity Wedding, Trends by weddingLeave a Comment

We know that not all personal wedding vows are always captured for the onsite video.  We also admit that we haven’t seen and heard all the greatest exchange of vows the past year.  But for the past couple of days, we’ve definitely heard a lot of good ones as shared to us by wedding videographers and W@Wies alike. More than the visual aspect of these videos, we listened intently as these couples exchange promises to each on their wedding day.  Good editing definitely helps – with choice soundbites blended seamlessly with the music. But the heart & soul of these wedding videos are the words uttered. Some of these vows are funny, while others are heartfelt; while even some managed to be both at the same time! The marriage vows included in our list were either read, memorized, recited impromptu, or even adlibbed.  But no matter how they were said, ALL are very personal. A glimpse into the couple’s story. Here we present to you our Top 11 choices for the Best Wedding Vows of 2011!
