LCD & Projector - Janvisuals

Booked them 2 days before the wedding date... we were supposed to use the one from my brother's company kaso ayoko yun sila pa mag seset up.. basta ayoko ng hassle so ayun.. naka book na kme nun sa Nextgen then ni cancel nmen and then go nanaman, by that time e hindi na daw available yun sa kakilala nila.. good thing I still have the contact number of Janvisuals..

Christ the King

Christ the King

Greenmeadows, Libis

Quezon City

I believe this one is God's gift for us.. As early as January 2007 we are planning to book Pasig Cathedral or NSDG.. Until we decided to inquire with Christ the King. Ive asked the help of my friend Sandra to inquire for the rate. At first, we were hesitant kasi a bit pricey sya..until I asked my mom to go there directly and inquire personally.. ayun.. on the spot they booked it na..

Trivia: When I was in Manila (we used to visit Christ the King every holy week for the bisita iglesia). I kneeled down and prayed that I will come back to that church to have my own wedding. Now its really coming true..Thanks God..

We've booked Christ the King last January 27, 2007.. thanks to my family for booking it in advance.. I think 1 year and 6 mos in advance.. ahihi.. aga no?

The package includes:
carpet
flowers for the aisles
soloist
priest
aircon

We love the location of the church. Its just perfect for us.

Sidestory:

Everything just fell into place. Weve booked 888.. they gave me the 3 pm slot.. lucky date dau yun kaya nmen ni book yun.. kaso, being overseas couple ayoko naman mhirapan kme mag hagilap ng suppliers. Feeling ko madami kasi papakasal ng 888.. kaya we decided to get 8.16.8 instead.

8.16.8
falls on a full moon..

They say moments lasts forever thats why we decided to invest on this. Being a practical couple we got Jayson's Team and we just love their style.

Deciding Factor

1. They have good/positive feedback from my fellow w@wies
2. Very talented and has fresh ideas
3. Good package at a reasonable price
4. Recommended for overseas couple like us (answers queries promptly)
5. Very easy to deal with. (better hire somebody who treats you like a friend para no awkward moments come prenup time and wedding day. mas masaya mag project pag kilala mo ang fotographer db?)
6. Eventhough they're just new in the biz super galing pa din nila.. Imagine ha? he bagged 1st place for prenup category in the WPPP photo congress 2007 last October 24, 2007. kaya were proud to be their client.. =)

Designer-Teresa Hagape Creations

Designer-Teresa Hagape Creations

Green Park Village, Pasig, Metro Manila

Mobile: +63 9178325285

Every girls' dream, is to walk down the aisle with the perfect-white flowing dress.. amidst the rows of flowers.. pews.. and the people you love most.

This is one of my major concerns during the preps. Being an overseas bride its a bit difficult to check their works and samples. I just have to rely on other brides for their inputs and experiences.

My first choice was Cecilio Abad Couture. He makes stylish and elegant gowns but he is way out of our budget. So, Ive checked out Ms. Raquel Pineyra, Cris Obcena, Ms. Tina of New Yorker and Ms. Tet Hagape of Teresa Hagape Creations.

Among my choices Ive decided to book Ms. Tet for the following reasons:

1. Replies to emails promptly (a plus factor for me)
2. She gives you ideas of the gowns which will suit your body type. (well she didnt actually see me but i sent her my whole body picture)
3. Very professional.
4. Very nice to deal with
5. Her gowns are simple yet elegant
6. she lives in pasig ( a plus din for me, since my mom has to deal with the designer)
7. Reasonably priced

still clueless for your designer? try Maam Tet.. =)

Picking the right designer involves 2 main considerations
1. style (does it match yours?)
2. Cost (can you afford it?)

Emcee-Melissa Ferrer Litao

Emcee-Melissa Ferrer Litao

An event to remember..

What makes a good celebration? Sumptuous food... free flowing drinks.. all the festivities going on will leave a mark on your guest's mind.. So, we decided to hire a professinal emcee..

I inquired for her services thru chikka. She is very prompt in replying. I didnt have any problems booking our wedding date 8.16.8. She informed me that she was still available for our wedding date thats why after a week we decided to give her our downpayment.

She is so bubbly.. I liked her immediately and I know our guests will love her too. I dont even have to think of the wedding program for the reception because she already prepared it for me.. Kaya i know na makakapag relax kme ni h2b sa wedding day.. =)

Sound System-Elmer Bautista of RejectKrew

Sound System-Elmer Bautista of RejectKrew

To provide us with sounds, lighting moods and special effects.. We got one of the most famous suppliers here at w@w.

His package is the real deal talaga. Booking him is another blessing din for us. He was available. He gave us the old rate instead of the new rates khet na naka pencil book palang kami.. He was prompt in replying din (talgang big points to para smen). Super magalang pa si sir Elmer.

- i love the lighting moods and dancing lights that they're going to provide
- the bubble machine.. super excited ako sa bubble machine.. so cute..
- fog juice
