It’s been almost a week since Fonzi and I officially became Mr. and Mrs. There are absolutely no words to describe the happiness and gratitude we have for all who have made our day the best one thus far. Things may have not gone exactly the way we had planned (due to the weather, an Amphitheater ceremony was quite impossible), what transpired was even better – an intimate celebration of love, together with our closest friends and family.
For now, allow us to thank the people responsible for creating such a beautiful day for us, truly one we will never forget!
To HM Events, Ate Hope and team, you were simply amazing. From day 1 until the wedding day, you have helped us plan and execute the wedding so seamlessly. My OC-heart was so fulfilled with the organized and professional handling of our event. Even when we had to proceed with Plan B, your team was on-point. I don’t know what we would have done without you, really.
To Something Splendid, Kaye and Novie, your styling and floral arrangements were definitely a sight to behold! I know it was a lot of stress on your part as well the moment the weather had become erratic, but what more can I say? Eden is already picturesque on its own, but with your decors and styling, it became a dream. You executed our vision so well, it was absolutely trés chic! Blogging in detail as soon as I get more photos.
To Cupcake Couture, Ms. MM, your cake was so gorgeous and yummy too! We are still enjoying it until now. We shall be recommending your services to all our pals in the future, no doubt about it.
To The Lucky Cat Press, our invitations were perfect. Such an easy team to work with, very independent with barely any supervision from us, and most importantly the designs were just how we imagined them to be. In fact, we had loved the Save The Date so much, we adopted the design for all our wedding collaterals. Thank you guys!
To John Belandres of Atelier 115, for our bridal gown and suit. Sir John, your creations were stunning. Your attention to details is quite impressive, and most importantly you were very easy to talk to. You made us look every bit of the dashing groom and blooming bride on our day, and it was lovely.
To Ninang Connie of Postura de Andrea, thank you for our groomsmen’s pants, Charlie’s suit, and my bridal robe. The boys looked so dapper in them, Charlie was the cutest, while I had the best time prancing around in my robe.
To the Tiny Pinili, Hairzone and Flor Lozada MUA teams, thank you for making my girls, moms and lolas so beautiful! As a makeup enthusiast myself, seeing them all dolled up makes my heart so ‘kilig’. Thank you also to my friend Sopfia for this!
To Click Avenue, for our Photobooth. Thanks for setting up the background we liked, helping us with our scrapbook, for the seamless transaction and for the remembrance our guests got to take home. Your service was highly enjoyed by our guests!
To Kuya Blues (Bluesmarquez Photography), and Team BMP, your work is awesome! We have shared, saved and watched the onsite photo slides for days now. Your photos are so alive, and dynamic, it feels like we are taken back to Eden just by looking at them again. I’m pretty sure our supply of profile pictures will last us for a few more years (HAHA!), but kidding aside, great job and thank you for giving your best to cover our wedding!
To Team MVP Digital Video, we have also countlessly replayed your onsite SDE. And every time we watch it, we feel a different sensation – sometimes we want to cry as we remember the emotions of the day, but mostly we are joyful. We cannot wait for the wedding highlights video, that is for sure. Thank you for being professional, friendly, and again for making us ‘artistas’ for a day. It was a lot of fun working with you guys!
To our friends from Musikademy and The Himig Singers, as always, we are inspired by your music and passion. Thank you for giving us your time and sharing with us and our guests your talent. It was a pleasure singing with you guys. Our wedding OST is perfect, thanks to you!
To our friends Andi and Francis for hosting our wedding. The program went so well, thanks to your skills and help! So glad to have radio personalities as friends! To Choy for the help on the catering. To our pastors Ptr. Bong and Ptr. Jobet, thank you, thank you! We will always remember your messages.
Thank you also to our other wedding suppliers, Manong Poldo of Poldo’s Goldsmith for our wedding bands, Moonhouse for our wedding ring box, Wallmount Advertiser for our cake table acrylic, Dr. Danna Reyes for our chair rentals and Invex for our lights and sound system. Mamus, thank you for letting us use your wedding arrhae from your wedding so many years ago. To Sir Ryan of Soundtrack Studio for our giveaway recordings, very professionally crafted.
We would like to thank our principal and secondary sponsors, our bridesmaids, groomsmen, bearers, flower girl, Maid of Honor and Best Man, thank you for being part of wedding entourage. Thank you for the support and guidance, and most of all your presence. Without you, our wedding would not be the same.
To our parents, thank you for allowing us to get married, for all your support and help. Thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams. We love you!
-Fonzi and Kia
