All Categories - THE BIG DAY: Albert and Viviene



What will I do without you??? Oh my! Thank you for saving my life. Thank you for all the effort sa bridal shower. Thank you talaga…

Super thankful kami ni Bert sayo kung alam mo lang!

I love you sis! Mwah!
As you know, they are the only 2 people in our family who can sing (decently). Needless to say, I am making them perform on our wedding day.

We still don’t know what to make them sing though hahaha. We’re deliberating on a few songs and I doubt we’d come up with a decision anytime soon!

Marchelle.  Apart from being a performer, Marchelle has been a great help to me in preparing for the wedding. She did the AVP way ahead. She helped manage the songs we needed to play. She also helped wrap the souvenirs. Thank you tats!

Kuya. Kuya is a savior. He said he’s buying us ref as a wedding present and he can’t take that back because it is now in black and white. People all over the world can see this post! Hahaha… Thank you kuya and we are excited to get the ref! I cant buy stuff that spoil easily hahaha.. We look forward to your awesome gift!!!
Gel and Uriel
I really want a ballet dance on our wedding but I don’t know any ballerina at all! So I started praying for it. All I asked God was someone who is passionate in dancing.

And then came GEL…!

I can’t thank God enough for leading me to her! (Thanks to Tita Len and Debra!) I literally shed tears of joy after receiving a “yes” from her. Answered prayer!

Gel started dancing at an early age after following the footsteps of her cousin and best friend Uriel. I’m guessing it’s roughly a decade of swaying in the center stage. They used to be together in ACTS Manila. This is where Gel became the youngest ever to get in. What an achievement! Right now, Uriel is still with them, but Gel decided to just dance in general.  

For them, "Ballet isn't just about dancing in recitals or getting paid for mall shows. It's always been about the passion and how great it feels to spread a message to an audience through dance - especially when the message is about God."

Achieving their dream of getting into New York Ballet or ACB in the States is definitely not far from reality.

I am so thankful for both of you! I’m so so so so excited! Thanks Gel and send my warmest thanks to Uriel too!

Big HUG!
Joni. She isn’t just a good or great friend. She is definitely a BESTFRIEND. We’ve known each other since high school but we only became real best friends in college. We’ve got lots and lots and lots of worth remembering experiences (some of them, we dare not publicize!). I often get her into trouble by persuading her to skip class to go to Binondo or Divisoria for no urgent reason. Hahaha. I so miss those late night kwentuhans with Jo… I miss you sis!!!!

Tita Elvie. I dream of THE day she’d be a bride herself! (and I’m inviting myself to be there! Heheheh…). We’ve gone a long way in the d-group. I can’t even remember the year we met. But I do remember those Thursday nights we used to meet in a small room in CCF together with Allen. Thanks mommy elvie for being one of my usherettes! Mwahhh

Ate Chel. I’m so glad to have another sister in the family. She’s shy and simple (very much my opposite). I don’t know how else to describe her apart from shy and simple. Heheh… Mwah!
If Jay is the in-house Host of the Singles Ministry, Alex is the most sought-after photographer of Singles. We’ve worked together in the ministry for quite some time and I’ve witnessed his flawless photos each event.

Right now, he works as a Systems Engineer at Allied Bank Credit Card. Apart from that, he also has small businesses here and there. If you need high quality personalized shirts at a competitive price, he’s the best person to ask! He also does websites, artworks and video editing! And… he loves photography! (How can you find time to do all these things? Saludo ako sayo! hehehe)

Thank you, Alex for doing the photo in our wedding!

We miss you in Alabang!
Vanenot (that is how we call her) is a very very good friend of mine. I would describe her as a fragrant flower that when she is around, you would sense joy, peace and love. =) Even if I just talk to her over the phone or email her, she would inspire me beyond limits. And! She is the one who invited me to CCF. Back in college, I knew she prayed for me hard so I would get to know our Savior. And I thank you for that, Vane! Thank you for unceasingly praying for my soul! =)

We were classmates in college and had photography class back then. I vividly remember how fascinated Vanenot is in photos. She even spent a whole night in my house talking to my dad about photography. (My dad is a hobbyist. That’s perhaps where my brother got the photography blood.)

And on my special day, I specifically chose 2 special people to do the photos that day, Vane and Alex.

Thank you so much, Vane!
When I saw Nicai a.k.a Janina for the first time, I knew right there and then... She is a certified fashionista! She loves make up and fashion (and it also shows). She always looks flawless in her normal outfit - jeans, shirt and blazer. That is her "boy days." She would sometimes show up with her ever girly outfit specifically on Screening Days which she loves so much!

I'm so glad we met just in time before The Big Day! Thank you seatmate for all your beauty tips!
Long before I decided to get married (long before I even had a boyfriend), I knew that Jay would be my host! He's the in-house host of the Singles Ministry and CCF in general. If they need a host, Jay would always be top of the mind. Jay and I would always be together in these events. But since this is my wedding, I can't host with him~ and then comes Marie.

No, they are not an item. Hahahha.. I've seen Marie and Jay host in a wedding. They are a perfect couple. (I mean as hosts.) So, it wasn't hard deciding who to team up with Jay. With the kind of program we have in the wedding, Jay and Marie would sure be the best hosts I can get next to Oprah or Boy Abunda.

Thanks Marie and Jay for helping us out in the wedding preparation!
I’ve known Aisha forever. We became friends since Grade 1 (that would be 20 years ago). And that 20 year friendship would suffice why she is “The Wedding Coordinator.” 

She's worked with an advertising agency before (where i also used to work) and she knows all about events planning from scratch. If you need some help with your wedding preparation, she's the best person to contact! 

Meticulous and keen on details, she'd leave your event flawless.

*Parang binebenta kita no? hahaha. Pag may nag-book sayo, may cut ako ha??? 
I need your help here. I think you should help me describe myself! Anyone?
