And the long weekend has finally come to an end, but do not fret as we have a double feature for our dearest readers to lighten up your day before you dive yourselves to work. You are in for a treat we say, as we showcase the engagement and wedding sessions of Ryan and Arlette.

This union is extra special as this couple celebrates 15 years of being civilly married. To mark that more-than-a-decade being together, crystals were strewn over. From the Vidal Clayton gowns worn in the e-session and the Rosa Clara stunning gown down to every detail in the venue, crystals were used to symbolize the milestone that the couple has reached. We applaud every supplier who helped achieve this sparkling wedding, especially Teddy Manuel for those bewitching floral arrangements and event styling. Also, thanks to Blufish Photography for these stills. You just proved that you are one of the biggest and ‘baddest’ fishes in the wedding scene today.

In This Love Arena

January 12, 2015

Among the amusement and industrial parks that have mushroomed around the metro last year, the Philippine Arena got noticed the most. With its massive, intricate structure, you will never miss this colossal ground once you pass by North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). Tucked in a peri urban area in Bocaue, Bulacan towers the world’s largest arena and the largest mixed-use indoor theatre. Philippine Arena will not only be used to hold church gatherings for Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) members, but will also be used for multi-sport and concert events. With its world class design and architecture, however, we think that it could also be a decent backdrop for weddings.

A living testimony is that of Leo & Visia’s recent engagement shoot. The couple has not been outshone by the mammoth structure, but has gone well together. The backdrop helps to come up with equally decent photos.  We commend the photographers and stylists for working on this. We feel like the couple had a wonderful and fun time.
