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. …

The wedding was held last January 24, 2017 in Asya Premiere, Boracay. Lloyd and Bangs met in the beautiful island of Boracay some 2 years ago thus, it’s just a perfect idea to have their wedding in the same island. The wedding was just full of love. Hearing their vows, what struck me most was: The wedding ends their long distance relationship as Lloydi is London-based. Soon after the wedding, Bangs will join him and settle in London.

Kaye Abad and Paul Jake Castillo’s Behind-The-Scenes and Official Wedding Pics – My Story

In Blog, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Oh what a beautiful wedding it was. One of the sweetest ones I’ve witnessed. The Cebu wedding though had a lot of guests (900 pax!) still felt intimate. The festivities started as early as the day before the wedding, when guests started coming in from manila and all over the world. Dec 8, the night before the wedding we had an impromptu get together at the bridal suite of the bride, Kaye. It was a sweet moment seeing Kaye bond with her closest best friends and family during the last night as a single woman. The day of the wedding, we were all busy and up and about by 8:30 am. Preparations started and I was busy shuttling between the bridal suite and Paul Jake’s room. It was heartwarming to see them both up close and personal and just witnessing how excited they were that finally they are marrying the love of their lives in a few hours. At promptly 2 pm, the caravan of Paul Jake and about 10 Mercedes Benz vehicles left for the church. This was documented using our aerial drone for almost the whole travel time! Wow what a scene it was :) I left together …

WaWparazzi: VJ Yambao and Camille Prats Prenup Shoot

In A Bit Personal, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

These 2 are more than just clients to me, they are my friends who’s like family. It excites me to think that their wedding is fast approaching, seeing how their love survived the true test of “LDR” (long distance relationship). And in the end all the wait is truly worth it, when their 20 years in the making love story gets sealed at the altar this January 2017. You see, VJ and Camille first met when they were in kindergarten, 20 plus years ago. And as fate would have it, they met again few years ago and never to separate again. It was just fitting that their prenup shoot and prenup video shoot were done in a place close to their heart- Los Angeles, California. This place was where their love started, grew deeper and truly a place where a lot of great memories happened. I am honored to be part of their love journey. From the proposal to the prenuptial shoot, bridal shower and of course, the wedding day. And am just as excited looking forward to the next milestones in their lives….. as always, I’ll be there for them, not only as their trusted photographer, but more so …

Wawparazzi: Paul Jake Santos and Kaye Abad Prenuptial Shoot

In Blog, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

When I look at Paul Jake Castillo  & Kaye Abad, I am reminded me of the quote “What is meant to be, will always find its way”. And just like their love story,  our experience on the day of their prenuptial shoot, was nothing close to easy – as it was raining so hard most parts of the day. But just like the quote, despite of the weather not cooperating, we were meant to have beautiful, effortless photos. Kaye as pretty as she is the first time we laid our eyes on her in “Tabing Ilog” as Eds ………. ………. and Paul Jake, as handsome as he is,……… ………. were at their most gorgeous because of their real happiness which radiates in every photo we took. Special thanks to the team behind this Official Prenuptial Shoot: #TeamNiceprint, RabbitHole Creatives, Mk Qua And Aries Manal, JayLizelle Santillan of Light and Sound Tech (LST Mobile) for the bubble machine and fog machine.

WaWparazzi: Bangs Garcia and Lloyd Birchmore Prenuptial Shoot

In Blog, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Valerie Bangs Garcia and Lloyd Birchmore are truly such a good looking couple :):) That’s what really came to mind when I met this fun loving couple. They are very much in love, always laughing when together and they both love to travel. So when we were conceptualizing their prenuptial shoot, we really had to have one concept that’s travel related. Hence one concept was road trip with luggage on top a cute vintage Mini Cooper :) Choosing the perfect venue was a challenge. They were both very clear that they didn’t want a beach prenuptial shoot because their wedding next year will be held in the beach. Second requirement was that it had to have a big lush garden. And third was that it had to have a vintage feel. Hence I really took time and made effort to find the perfect spot! Fortunately, I came across Villa Milagros, a new venue in the east that has a beautiful, white mansion as its main attraction. During the whole shoot, the beauty of the couple truly stood out amidst the white elegant setting that was Villa Milagros. Also notable during the shoot was the love between Bangs and her younger …

WaWParazzi: Paul Jake Castillo and Kaye Abad Proposal

In Blog, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Around one week before the May 21st surprise proposal of Paul Jake to Kaye, I got a call from celebrity stylist Patty Yap. She was calling since she said, Paul Jake wanted to hire us to cover the surprise birthday celebration for his girlfriend Kaye. And so when the team of Nice Print was preparing on the day of May 21st getting ready to head to Alabang, I got another call, this time from Paul Jake himself. He said that nobody knew, not even the closest friends that he was going to propose that night! Only Paul Jake, Kaye’s dad and brother knew since he formally asked for his daughter’s hand. And so needless to say, Paul Jake told me to make sure it was to be kept a secret! And so the excitement for all of us actually multiplied a 100x. So at the rooftop of a building in Alabang, Kaye walked into the place, and got soooo shocked to see the familiar faces of family and friends. At this point she was already overwhelmed thinking that the bday surprise was the highlight of the night! As she walked through the cheering crowd, she was given 34 red roses …

WaWParazzi: Janella Salvador’s 18th Birthday

In W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

It was supposed to be a planned debut wherein Janella was so hands on with every detail, however a few months before the event, she decided not to push through with it. But the mom of Janella, Miss Janine Desiderio called the team to say she wanted to push through with it as a surprise. So the night before her 18th bday, March 29, the big surprise happened. That day Janella only thought that she was the special guest for the birthday bash of a child named Twinkle. She was supposedly requested by the family of Twinkle to sing the theme song of Disney movie, Tangled. So as she entered the grand ballroom, she was singing. Then one by one, she started recognizing familiar faces in the crowd. That’s when it dawned on her that the party was for her! She was so overwhelmed and cried that very instant. It was a night full of love, fun and sweet music. Her mom, Janine, even dedicated a beautiful song for her baby. In the end, Janella was truly a happy debutante. She thanked everyone who came, especially her mom and the suppliers who all worked hard to make her once in …

In W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

It all started with Maine a.k.a Yaya Dub thinking that she was attending an awards night at the Elements Centris tent. To her surprise, upon entering the tent, she realized that it was a birthday bash for her! She was soooo surprised. She was truly so happy. Her fans and friends and family truly made her 21st birthday so memorable. The venue looked every bit of a true Coachella, thus the hashtag for the event was #nicomainechella21 There were also 21 cakes from different fans clubs and friends which had different themes that are close to Maine’s heart. There was a Coachella-themed cake, of course, and there was also a New York-inspired themed cake since Maine really loves the “city that never sleeps. Nice Print, together with her family and friends, prepared a very special AVP for Maine. This was the very first part of the program and Maine happily watched the video. In the AVP, we got to interview her old teachers in St. Paul school, as well as visited her favorite local restaurants in her hometown Bulacan. Her siblings and parents also gave their special messages for the phenomenal star. After the event, Maine posted one photo to …

WaWParazzi: Nyoy and Mikkie

In W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

My friendship with Nyoy Volante started way back when we first met at the wedding of his co-sessionista, Princess Velasco, last 2013. Since then whenever we see each other in celebrity events, we would chat and exchange pleasantries. When they got engaged last year, it was agreed that nice print would be covering their wedding. In their thank you speech last night in fact, they mentioned how they didn’t know where to start the wedding planning until they talked to me and I guided them through it all. I was just so very happy to have been part of their journey because Nyoy and Mikkie are just two beautiful wonderful people. Nyoy and Mikkie tied the knot on February 24 2016. Their official hashtag is #carpoolforever because ever since they met, they always are carpool mates, both living in the south Nyoy and Mikkie though are opposites in a lot of ways, but are truly meant for each other. They compliment each other. If there’s one thing in common with the two, it’s their love for music! Nyoy, as we all know, is a well-known acoustic singer and Mikkie is a stage play theater actress. It’s just expected that somehow …

WaWParazzi: Arthur Solinap & Rochelle Pangilinan Marriage Proposal

In Blog, W@Wparazzi by Team WaWLeave a Comment

It all started out when I got a call from PPL entertainment’s big bosses Perry Lansigan and Paolo Luciano, management group that handles Art and Rochelle (and I met them since they are also the managers of Dingdong Dantes). They told me that we had to meet so we can come up with a great plan for the surprise proposal and to discuss the ideas of Arthur. So here we are in this PIC, after our brainstorming session: Below are photos taken during our occular in Balay Indang. I learned later on that the venue had to be there because that’s where Art and Rochelle first met 7 years ago, so it would be truly special if the proposal will also happen there. Below photo is our blocking session for the proposal. Until we found the perfect spot where the proposal will happen. It is truly such a romantic spot. So on February 20, 2016, we all went to Balay Indang Tagaytay quite early so we can set up and rehearse with everyone involved. The plan was that Art and Rochelle were to have a post Valentine’s dinner in another resto that night. Art was supposed to take her to …

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 …

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 …

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 …
