On Reel Deal Video

Videographer: Reeldeal Video by Chug Cadiogan
Rating: Super Highly Recommended

Chug was another w@w find. We met chug February 2008 and on our first meeting we booked him right away. His rates are reasonable and also madaling kausap and knows his craft very well. From watching his videos sa site nya, I know he’s going to be big someday. Paganda ng paganda ang mga outputs nya.
Dapat kasama sha sa dinner nmn before the wedding kaya lang may biglaan shang assignment that he cannot refuse. Sayang. Hehehe…
During the wedding, they were there on time. Came in few minutes after Jayson’s team. The Reel Deal Team was also great. Mababait cla Lawrence, mike and JC. Lawrence I such a good guy. Ang lagi ko kasama c JC. He was with me sa bridal car and sha ung may hawak ng glide cam kaya sha ung lagi ko nakikita tumatakbo sa gilid ko, sa harap ko… hehehhe…. Takot nga ako baka bigla sha gumulong. hahaha…. The onsite video was great. We love it. Pati ung pamangkin ni matt lagi pinapanood hanggang ngayon. Gasgas na yata ung DVD nmn. Hehehe…

On Redefine Weddings

Photographer: Redefine Weddings by Jayson Arquiza
Rating: Super Highly recommended

RW is one great team. What more can I say. All praises to this amazing group of people. The first time that we met Jayson was way back November 2007. Our first impression was he’s a really great photographer, loves his work, and takes care of his clients. Very humble and down to earth. Ibang klase. During our first meeting he told us to try to meet with other photographers. When in fact nung first meeting kahit hindi pa nmn sha nakakausap we were ready to book him. So nahiya nmn ako magbayad on the spot. Hhehehe… After our meeting hindi na kmi nakipagkita kahit kanino pang photographer since we are decided na to get Jayson Arquiza (ang tanong na lang is kung anong package ang kukunin namn). Hehehe… the week after I texted him na sila na ang gus2 nmn na photographer. and everything’s history.
During the prenups, mejo nahihiya pa ako sa kanila. Buti na lng nanjan c Matt. Makulit kasi un. Ang daming hirit. So we got comfortable nmn. We wanted to give RW a first in Villa Escudero. Kaya ayun dun kami nagprenup. It was also the first time na nakausap ko c Jo Anne and Kuya Jun. Pagdating nmn sa Villa Escudero nag tour muna kami sa museum then after nag shoot na agad. By lunch time it was raining hard kaya we had our lunch first. Dun nagkakwentuhan and nagkakulitan and we got comfortable nmn. They were like our barkada when we talk. Parang ang tagal na nmn magkakilala. Hehehhe… Kahit nakakapagod ung shoot it was all worth it kasi they delivered great photos and we gained new friends. That;s the best part of it. The only regret lang cguro during the prenups was hindi nmn naenjoy ung place. Balak ko pa man din mag swimming. Hehehe…
During the preps, well we had dinner with them before the wedding para nmn maging comfortable na din kami sa isa’t isa. Sobrang enjoy ung dinner sayang lang wala si Chug kasi may biglaan shang shoot. Well… hehehe… Kami na yata ang nagsara ng Cabalen nun kasi we were talking non-stop. Puro si Chug yata pinagusapan namn nun. Hehhehe…
During the wedding, they arrived on time and pagdating nila work agad. Nagworry nga ako kasi baka hindi pa cla kumakain tapos nagwork sila agad. I only met Jon and Richard nung wedding day na. and they were ok. Richard was all smiles during that day. Si Jon d ko mashado nakasama kasi nakaassign yata sha kay Matt. All the shots were beautiful. Wala kami masabi ni matt. As in we’re very satisfied with their output. Isa din cla sa mga nagparelax sa amin. Sobrang saya. Isa sa mga requested shot ko is ung DDD shot ni matt. hehhehe… and my wish was granted. :D Right now Jayson and Jo Anne is one of our close friends. Parang matagal na kami magkakakilala. We feel at ease pag kasama nmn cla. Sabi ko nga kay matt, hindi lang cla magagaling na photographers pero mababait na tao din. We’re really blessed to have met great people. They’re truly one of our blessings.

On EMS Lights and Sounds

Sounds and Projector: EMS Lights and Sounds
Rating: Super Highly Recommended

EMS was recommended to us by our coordinator. I tried to look for feedbacks sa w@w pero wala ako Makita. Once again we took the chance to get Darwin since according to our coordinator ok nmn sha. I contacted him right away to ask for a quote for sound system and LCD Projector rental. Im very particular with lighting nmn so I think we don’t need it na. the quote he gave me was reasonable nmn so I booked him right away. Nung nagkita kami nagustuhan nmn sha ni hubby kasi mabait sha and madali kausap. Mejo mahiyain hhehehe… pero ok nmn. He gave us backdrop lights and bubble machine for free. Hehehe… furing the wedding na kmi ulit nagkita. Ok ung sound system. I think he used new equipment kaya maganda ung sounds. And since wala kami musicians we rely highly on him for music and we also provided CD of the songs we want played. Jayson and Chug were even impressed with his LCD Projector. Ang linaw daw parang 5000 lumens when in fact 2000 lumens lang sha. I think its new din. Heheheh… super satisfied kami with the services provided by EMS.

On Missy Ferrer-Litao

Emcee: Missy Ferrer-Litao
Rating: Highly Recommended

Missy was another w@w find. I got her because of the many positive feedbacks about her. Before we book her mabilis sha mag reply sa messages. Mejo matagal din kami nakapagmeet personally kasi hindi magtugma ung sched nmn and ung venue ng meeting. But eventually we did meet and ok nmn ung nagging meeting nmn. She was very bubbly and friendly. So we’re happy to get her nmn. After that hindi ko na sha mashado nacontact or nakausap. Nung nagkaroon ng issue sa w@w mejo bothered ako kasi mahirap na nga sha macontact. We were not able to meet na before the wedding. Hindi nmn maalis sa akin magworry na baka hindi sha makarating. Pero i learned to let go and trust her na makakarating sha. Nag meet na lng kami ulit nung wedding na. The guests were saying na magaling daw ung emcee nmn. Well magaling nmn talga. Nadala nya ung crowd. And hindi nmn naempty ung venue. Ayoko kasi mangyari ung after dinner magtatayuan na ung guests. Good thing we have a good emcee. Magaling talga c Missy. Nung dinner sha pa nga ung kumuha ng food for us. Hehehhe… kasi alam nyang gutom na gutom na kami. Parang sha ung nagging waiter nmn. Hehhehe… All thumbs up to her.

On Jasmine Guitang's Strawberry Wines (Ceasar's Best)

Principal Sponsor Gift: Strawberry Wines from Jasmine Guitang
Rating: Highly Recommended

We were not suppose to give out minicakes lang sa PS nmn. Kaya lang sabi ng mom ko better if we could give something else. Wines are the easiest to get. But we didn’t want to give red wines kasi mejo common na un. I looked for wine suppliers sa w@w and I found Jasmine Guitang. She offered fruit wines. So I contacted her right away and madali sha magreply and ok kausap. I got strawberry wines from her. Galing pa Baguio ung wines nmn. Hehehe… tinatanong nga ako kung paano ako nakakuha ng strawberry wines eh. Hehehe… sabi ko e di sa w@w. J I was the one who designed the wine label and sent it to her for printing. Then ako na ung nag package. Hindi nga nabigyan lahat ng PS ng wines eh kaya we ordered additional pa from her. Hehhhe…

Rating: Highly Recommended

We just want a simple and delicious wedding cake but we want it all edible. Ayoko kasi ung maganda lang tapos konti lang ung makakain ko. Hehehe… I love desserts kasi. Yum yum… TPC was the clearest choice for us. She offers all edible cake at a very reasonable price plus its really delicious. I love chocolates kaya chocolate cake ang pinagawa nmn. Very creative c Ate Audrey and ang cute ng mga designs nya. She’s also very accommodating and easy to talk to. I love our cake. Ang ganda ganda. Also our cake topper. Hehehe…. The cupcakes and mini cakes were also nice and delicious. Masarap nga daw sabi ng mga tita and friends ko.
