Power of Love

Remember the news when a party list representative popped the question to his girlfriend during a plenary session in the congress? They are married now! And their wedding has been a regal one. Ashley and Paz’ coming together was expectedly well-attended by powerful people and high officials in the government. You can see, in fact, that some of the groom’s comrades were in their uniforms, expressing power, respect, and brotherhood. But, of course, the entourage and guests were all glammed up in coral and powder blue motif, giving a light mood to the event.

The groom, who is usually seen wearing barongs during sessions, looked better in tuxedo. Whereas the bride was dazzling in Jazel Sy-Midel’s creation which has stones and beads strewn all over. They proved that they are a power couple, indeed. The wedding also served as a sweet treat for Marvin of 12Masters Photography who took these amazing photos and who is a supporter of Congressman Ashley and the Magdalo group. Hats off to you, Marvin!

Let us also not forget the dreamy same-day-edit video done by Treehouse Story. It captures truthful, sincere moments, making us feel the overflowing joy this union has been. Also, the scoring is spot on. It started with a Temper Trap-ish song, then went slowly before zooming out to an aerial shot. That is magnificent, no less!

La Vie En Rose

Who would not want to get hitched in style? Lawrence and Charissa wanted to get married in a stylish way and they did, without milking their coffers out. This newlywed went for a European-but-more-likely-a-Parisian-slash-rustic theme. Instead of going to foreign lands, they brought these places to home. The reception venue, in fact, was filled with small splendid details that would remind you of the local streets in Europe.

The Chapel of Transfiguration in Caluerga, Batangas was obviously the perfect fit to hold this church wedding. The whole place is so majestic and sanctified that makes you want to get married again—with the same person, eh. The photos are by Paul Vincent who did great by matching the theme with that retro-like texture.

Get in style and on budget. No biggie.
