Sarah and Wilson

Sarah and Wilson got married last weekend at Antonio’s, Tagaytay. It was a beautiful garden wedding. They couldn’t ask for more as they were celebrating this special day being surrounded by close family and friends. On that day, love was all that mattered.

I asked Sarah, “How did he propose?”
“Jan 22 2017 – In his house, nothing fancy, he just showed me a video he made full of our photos. Very private and personal proposal  exactly how I wanted it to be. I was so mad at him the night before because he staged a fake proposal and placed a wire on my ring finger. I was already emotional that time because of accumulated, heightened anticipation. Almost a year before he proposed, while we were on vacation in HK, he asked me to fit and try on engagement rings to get my size. Several months and various trips abroad after (including Paris!), Wilson still did not pop the question.
Mid January 2017, he went to HK for one night for a “business trip” and he did not bring me along which i found very unusual. Turns out my hunch was right, he went there to pick up my ring. Few days after he popped the question.”

Kylie and Jay Jay

Kylie and Jayjay have been together since August 2015. When I asked what they love about each other? Kylie says that he can make her laugh even at the dullest moment. Jayjay on the other hand loves how Kylie is laid back, simple, and reserved.

I remember my meeting with Kylie and Jay Jay. He particularly said, “gusto ko yung SDE ni Iya and Drew!” that’s why they did a cliff wedding at Kawayan Cove.

The logistics of this wedding was quite tedious, but definitely worth it! The day was just perfect. It was raining a bit in the morning, but the sun shone just in time for Kylie and Jayjay’s wedding. The drone shot of Kylie walking on the aisle is the highlight. But I think being surrounded by their closest friends and family as they professed their love for each other is the most surreal moment that FYAM is so honored to capture.

Do watch the SDE!

Anne and OJ

Anne and OJ have been together for 2 years and 5 months. Anne handles their family business as contract grower of San Miguel, while OJ is an IT specialist for the US Federal Government. They got married at St. Pancratius, Paco Park, followed by a beautiful reception at Sofitel. Watch out for the scene where we were able to capture Anne’s walk to the aisle with our drone!

How was the proposal? Anne and OJ shares it in 3RD person:

OJ proposed last November 2015 at Big Bear Ski Resort in California. It was snowboarding day for them. Anne got tired, so she asked OJ if they can take a rest. They went inside the car, just the two them.

Back story: Anne has never experienced snowfall. When they were in NY, OJ told Anne a year ago that he would propose during a snow fall.

Oj asked for a sign. If it snows, he would propose.

15minutes later, still inside the car, snow began to fall, and it was stronger and stronger. It was OJ’s sign. He went out of the car, went to Anne’s side to open the door, and popped the question. Of course, tears were all over the place and the rest is history.

Dior and Rey

Dior and Rey have been crazy for each other for 8 years! Written in their Philippine Star newspaper article: “RT who proposed to Dior in a parking lot, says he had the ring two weeks before he proposed – and waiting any longer was not an option. “

They tied the knot at San Antonio de Padua followed by a beautiful intimate wedding reception at Splendido.

I asked Dior how was the wedding preps? Was it stressful? Well, she was one of a kind bride to say, “not at all. We were enjoying it every step of the way.” That’s how I wish every bride should feel while doing their wedding preps. In my experience, most brides turn into a bridezilla come wedding day. Dior on the other hand, she was definitely the bridechilla! It’s always a pleasure shooting a happy bride who just knows how to enjoy her special day.

Cris and Kristian

Cris and Kristian tied the knot at Madre de Dios Chapel, followed by a beautiful reception at Midlands Veranda, Tagaytay.

Cris: “Our love story was not a love at first sight. Or maybe it was only for you, when you saw me. Slowly, I fell in love with you.”

Cris and Kristian are both doctors. They were classmates during pre-med, but became bf/gf during med school. Cris shares how hard it is to do all the wedding preparations due to their busy schedules as doctors. I was asking Cris if she had notes for her wedding. She just requested: “wag super close up sa face ko pag umiyak ako.” Oh, I love quirky requests! But the best advise I always share to my clients, is to just enjoy your wedding day!

Thea and Lorenz

Thea and Lorenz tied the knot at Our Lady of Lourdes in Tagaytay last December just before Christmas, followed by a beautiful reception in Narra Hill.

These two have been together for 10 years! Thea shares that they became bf/gf just right after she turned 18. Who would think that she’ll be marrying the same person seated beside her during their college orientation. How cool is that! I don’t even remember the person I’m seated beside college orientation. haha! Well, I guess it’s destiny for Thea and Lorenz.

Do watch their SDE!

Ruth and Kevin

Ruth and Kevin tied the knot at Chapel on the Hill, followed by an intimate reception at Narra Hill.

I met Ruth and Kevin a month or so coming to the wedding day. Funny, because they booked us last minute, and we are so glad to be available to do it! They shared that they are High School sweethearts. They have been together for 12 years, and finally decided to get married last November 20, 2016. I even told them that if they had a baby, it’s already 12 years old now! They both just laughed and agreed. It’s amazing how a high school sweetheart can blossom into something more. This is not so usual nowadays, and we are so happy to capture this wedding filled with love and promises.

Cielle and Jay

Cielle and Jay met at their Medtech Internship at NCH. They got married a few days ago at Lourdes Church and followed by a beautiful reception at Taal Vista.

I love how persevering Jay is to Cielle. Everyone deserves that kind of love!

They were together for 7 years, with 1 year break up.
Cielle shares that Jay failed 3 times in proposing to her.
1st in Cambodia. They were checking in at the airport, then she found out that her passport was about to expire. They had to cancel the trip!
2nd in Sonya’s garden. It was raining really hard… he thought it wasn’t the perfect time.
3rd in Sky Ranch. The weather wasn’t cooperating. It rained hard and there was power outage right before they were entering!
The plan that worked, was finally on the eve of his bday, at the revolving restaurant in Eastwood, he popped the question… “Will you marry me?”

You see guys, it doesn’t always work the way you want to. It was also raining during the wedding, that they had to move the reception inside Taal Vista! But all is well, everyone had a blast at the wedding!
