On a wonderful sunny day, over a cliff in majestic Kawayan Cove, where the sky, the sea and land seems to converge as one, David and Eeyah took their marriage vows and became husband and wife. The Park at Meditation Point was designed to bring people closer to God. It was a perfect place to celebrate holy matrimony where man and woman becomes one with God.

In a marriage there are always three parties: the husband, the wife and God. All three are needed for a happy and stable married life like a three-legged stool. David has put it aptly that “the most important reason that a man and a woman are to marry is to bring glory to God.

”Our earnest wish is for you to have a blessed married life and that you are true to your promise to become the best version of yourselves. Congratulations, David and Eeyah!

The cool climate of Baguio and its high altitude did not seem to matter on the exact time that Dean and Dame exchanged their vows. All eyes were on them but their eyes were only for each other. But even as their eyes welled with tears while saying their vows, there was no mistaking that they were truly happy to have found each other.

Wait, I’ll just reach for my Kleenex. [sniff, sniff]

There, I think I made my point across. A couple’s wedding vows, that personal commitment you want to share to the rest of the world, is not only for the newlyweds. It is also for the benefit of the family and friends whom you call to witness your exchange on that day. It is something people look forward to, something to hold on to, and even something you’d want to remind each other, long after the honeymoon stage is gone. Exchange of ‘I love you’? Make it worth living for. Taga mo pa sa bato. Once you do that, don’t forget to cue in a suitable music to guide your emotions. And the rest will spell f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

So when I said in my previous post that this couple pulled out all the stops, I really meant it. And they topped it with a choreographed dance!

Congratulations Dean and Dame!

I have heard this statement countless of times, “Gusto namin maganda ang same day edit video namin.” As a wedding filmmakers  for many years, the statement is music to my ears. For who else will I partner with to make a beautiful and memorable video? No other than you, the bride and groom. While it is true that I am the one behind the lenses, you create the moments. After all, it is your day.

Do not let your wedding video be part of your day’s jitters. Trust me, you already have a lot of things on your mind, come your altar date. Here are my most common suggestions:

  1. Tell me what you have in mind. Let’s lay expectations on the table. I promise not to tell anyone if you are planning a surprise. It would help me to know so that I can catch your impromptu moments.
  2. If you are into it, I suggest you make your own vows. It doesn’t matter if you are reading it or memorized it, as long as it is coming from the heart. I’ll do my darnedest best to catch all your emotions. Remember, those vows will be said for the first and only time before the altar but will forever be etched in your memory.
  3. The bridal march is truly one of the most anticipated highlights of a wedding. For the brides, it is the last time you’ll walk as a single lady. So before the groom puts a ring on your finger, make it your moment. Choose a song that you will walk with from the door to the altar, preferably a song on violin.
  4. Enjoin your family and friends in the preparation. Having them around while you are dressing up and having your makeup done breaks the ice. On such a special day, you are in good hands when you have good company.

But if you must all know, Flexibility is my middle name. So when my bride and groom, Vina and Goldwin, decided to break conventions, I was game. They told me the song they want. They did not have their personalized wedding vows, since their church, San Agustin Church, does not allow for such. Vina did not get out of a bridal car but chose to walk from her hotel to the church’s doorsteps. And who helped the groom dressed up? The bride!  It turned out that the groom’s “best man” is no other than his “best and only woman.”

Goldwin’s and Vina’s wedding takes the Filipiniana theme to the next level. Our best wishes!


Watch out for another remarkable wedding highlights  soon! This time, another bride and groom pulled out all the stops – you’ll know what I mean when you see this Baguio wedding. Vows + music = Kleenex moment!
