I’ve wanted to write about this wedding for a while now. However, I had to wait for a couple of things before everything was in perfect order. And today they are! What a picture-perfect union this is. Because the couple is both exposed to the world of fashion (Vanessa is a model and Jun is a photographer… how cute right?), it comes as no surprise that their wedding is going to be our style candy for the day.
I don’t know the couple personally but a few of my friends do, and believe me, they were all praises for this kind-hearted tandem. It’s rare to come across weddings that stir your heart even without being there. This is one of those exceptional ones.
This video by Threelogy is a must-see!
Mayad also made two other videos. This one is of their after-party celebration in Whitespace, the other we featured before was is their pre-wedding trailer. I couldn’t resist showing this one because it’s such a fun video! Who would say no to a wedding that’s overflowing with laughter, energy and a free Blackberry?
From the bride:
Since I was a kid my dream wedding was to get married under a tree and I pictured that in my mind so many times. None of those times came close to what we had on our wedding day. My husband coincidently wanted to get married under a tree as well. We researched for a tree around the Philippines but couldn’t find one so we decided to just get married in a Garden and scratch that perfect tree off the list. Lo and behold, a month before the ceremony we did our ocular inspection of Bellarocca and we found the tree of our dreams and it came with a beautiful sunset view as a bonus.
I believe every wedding is unique, even if you have the same suppliers and music. Our wedding was such a blessing, it was orchestrated by God. Our guests felt the presence of God, and it showed in every tear they shared with us that day. One week before my wedding I got my wedding gown from the original designer I hired, it wasn’t what I expected, and to make things worse it was a week before the wedding. This was when my angels got together. So many designers offered me their gowns, but John Herrera stood out with his amazing vision and heart. He gave me my perfect wedding gown as an early wedding present. He was just one of the people used by God to make our dream wedding come true.
