“Sa hinaba-haba ng prusisyon, sa simbahan din ang tuloy”.
(“No matter how long the procession is, it all leads to the Church.”)
A familiar Philippine Proverb used for things or people who have gone through a lot and in the end gets the highlight of their life.
In AlDub’s case, it’s “Sa hinaba-haba ng kalye serye, sa simbahan din ang tuloy.”
“Kalye Serye“ is one of Eat Bulaga’s programs where Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) and Alden (Richard Faulkerson Jr) became an accidental love team. Fans, co-workers, and producers noticed these two’s chemistry and instantly gained following – both online and offline. Now, Maine and Alden are finally engaged! Here are their prenup photos from Manny and April Photography.
AlDub’s engagement session photos were taken in San Juan along Valencia street. The concept of their prenup came from Event Laboratory Events Management which was funny, bubbly, classic with a modern twist and romantic. It was very fitting since the two met in kalye serye with the “isaw” (chicken intestines), jeep and tricycle as their props. The couple in a white room with balloons were enough to show off their crowd-pleasing star quality. A Classic garden shoot with the couple adding their modern style. And lastly, the two dressed in their wedding gown and suit to tease their fans on what’s to come.
We asked both Manny and April how Maine and Alden were during the shoot, and here’s what they said:
“Alden is undeniably guwapo while Maine is the pretty and bubbly type of lady. Despite their success, both remain very down to earth and kind to everyone around them. No wonder… fans adore them a lot.”
It’s hard enough meeting celebrities of their caliber without getting overly star-struck, let alone asking them to pose and shooting them, but Manny and April couldn’t help but have a field day with these two.
“To be honest, it was hard to stay calm and composed at first. When we started shooting, we realized that they are normal, just like everybody else. 🙂 They were playing around, had a lot of funny antics and spread all their good energy that made the shoot easy and heartfelt.”
