Choosing Love: Nico and Ally’s Wedding (SDE by Ian Celis)

What if choosing love meant sacrificing your career? Read about Nico and Ally’s super sweet love story! It’ll let you see Type A individuals in a different light!

Isn’t it funny how, just when you thought you were totally in control of your life and had everything planned out, destiny decides to intervene? It’s kind of like living in an episode of Game of Thrones, though hopefully the less bloody ones. In the same way, Nico and Ally had already set their own plans and were on their way to slaying their goals by the time they met each other. They instantly clicked. But choosing love was not as easy as it seemed.

When they met, Nico was about to be relocated to Singapore for work.  Ally, who only wanted to get into a serious relationship, decided to stop seeing him. She thought if they ended up in an LDR (Read about a couple who did make it work), it would distract her from her career goals. But Nico didn’t let her go.

The wait is finally over for Max and Cristal. Watch that fateful moment take place in this tropical island wedding at Dos Palmas, bookended by lots of carefree partying.

If you’ve ever been to Metropolitan Manila, chances are you know what waiting is like and are getting tired of it pretty fast. There’s the spiraling line to board the MRT, the carmaggedon on EDSA and just about every other avenue in the city, even months-long waiting just to renew your passport. But waiting can be a good thing too–especially when it’s for something truly worth it, something you’ve prayed long and hard for. Some people believe that that moment when you’re about to quit is the time to keep going, the turning point before all things work out for good. That’s pretty much true for Max and Cristal too, who, after overcoming their disbelief, finally tied the knot at their tropical island wedding.

Laid-back Prenup: Lazy Sundays at Eastwood and BGC

Glam isn’t the only way to go when planning for your prenup. If you’re more relaxed than glitzy, opt for a laid-back prenup instead. This lazy Sunday-inspired shoot at Eastwood City and The Fort just makes us want to curl up and stay at home all day.

There is a reason why lazy Sundays exist. Because our lives are constantly bombarded with work and other priorities, we deserve a day to rest and to do the things we love. That was our couple’s inspiration for their laid-back prenup.  Joseph and Dianne are a couple of homebodies who wanted something simple and relaxed, like them. A Sunday free from all hustle and bustle, no crowd in sight, complete with fair weather.

There is a feeling of warmth and coziness in this wedding inspired by the fall season and its colors. With the addition of the earthy, rustic, and laidback ambiance of Casa San Pablo, it is a wedding ceremony that makes you feel right at home. The surrounding floral decor, festoon of string lights, and all the wooden accents add a charming touch to this autumn-inspired wedding.

Seventeen years prior to their autumn-inspired wedding, Marc and Annegi’s love story first began to unfold on that fateful day in a classroom in UP Los Banos when they first met. But it wasn’t until a few years after that they would get to embark on a journey that would change their lives forever.

Timeless and Passionate Prenup in Anawangin

Going for that timeless and passionate feel for this prenup session, Arbie and Kim chose a place away from the rapid pace of the city. With nature as their backdrop and no props in sight, the couple was a definite standout, contrasting (in a good way) with their almost rustic background.

Timeless and passionate was what Arbie and Kim were aiming for.  And Anawangin, with its raw beauty, was the perfect match for the couple’s strong and intense personalities.

“We chose Anawangin because it’s not the typical prenup location and we love the ambiance, the nature, the rock formation, and the lake. You can find it all there. We both love the beach and wanted something different, unusual, and of course, a theme that suits our personality.”
