It Was Worth The 21 Years Of Praying

It took me almost a month before finally posting this journal entry and my sister's wedding photos (Could have done it earlier). Reason being, today is her birthday. :-)

21 years ago, my sister Alma and brother-in-law Keeyan got married. I personally never thought they'd come to a point where they'd have a renewal of vows. :-) All I know is that my sister's been longing and praying for years to finally have a Catholic wedding.

And God intervened.

My sister told me about her plan of finally renewing her vows with Keeyan less than a month before the actual date of the renewal (August 17, 2013), but stating that with the constraints of time, et al, she just wants something plain. I told my best friend, makeup artist Tippy Destacamento, about it. I asked him to help me orchestrate something "veeerrrry simple." Tippy is very close to everyone in my family (an honorary Buslon) and he simply won't let that day slide without having something special. (Us wedding suppliers have to make moments like this extra special, after all.) The plan started with just a simple "cutting of the cake" - and one thing led to another, so to speak. Well, the word "another" is an utter understatement. Ate Alma declared it was God's work to have the help of some of the finest talents in the wedding industry to make her renewal of vows an unforgettably blessed one - "angels" like Tippy, Boy Kastner Santos, Chef Kiko Arcabos, Aisle 1401 (Anna, John, Drei and Miko), Shiela Orillo, Serge Igonia, Czarina Llanora-Pogi, Donna Flores-Mangune, Ken Kinoshita and Gerald Salcedo. (Thank you, all, from the bottom of my heart.)

The whole process was beyond overwhelming for me. My sister sacrificed a lot (especially her youth) so that I could get to a proper high school and attend a good university. My involvement in her renewal of vows is not even nigh-repayment. It was an absolute honor for me to be part of it.

In my mind, I wanted her to be happy. God wanted a miracle for her. :-)

Happy birthday, Ate! Love you! 

I Have Been 1401'ed

As you may (or may not) know, our friends, Aisle 1401, is making our 5K Prenup Run a more special one by giving away a free Save The Date video to some of our lucky couples.

Can't complain about the setup at all. Let me list down why:

1) They're real talented.

2) They're funny as hell. 

3) I learn a lot from them. 

4) We're all foodies... yet we all spend too long deciding where to eat. 

5) They don't seem to mind my being... strange. LOL. Nah, they're all very, very nice! (And, I'm not strange. ^^)

I like me some Aisle 1401.

Below is the link to the Save The Date video they made for one of our couples, Mon and Elle (who are going to have their civil wedding on Sept. 18 - Yay!).

We're Cooking Something Up...

It's cool to collaborate with fellow artists/wedding suppliers. My friend, Moki from Moki Gray {Designs} is going to celebrate her 1st anniversary as a wedding supplier. She recently had her blowout recently and just a few days ago, she met up with me and my best friend, makeup artist Tippy Destacamento for some friendly bonding, fattening pastries and, well... We are cooking something great for you, fans of Moki Gray {Designs}. Watch out for it. :-)

Back To My Roots (Kinda)

Before my foray into wedding photography, I mostly did fashion (for how many years, don't ask LOL). I loooove doing wedding photography, but this photoshoot felt like having a "welcome back" banner in front of me. It's good to do this from time to time. ^^

Thanks to the following people:

Shayne Maceda of SMMA Modeling Agency | Models Charles Siy, Troy Cuizon, Masshi Okubo and Era Cruz | Jhera Fadol for the makeup | Drei Soriano, Randall Solomon and Ulysses King for the hot fashions.

Here are just a few of the shots. Click the thumbnails to enlarge. Enjoy! :-)
