When the Stars Collide

Many girls’ hearts have recently been broken and many dreams have been shattered when the news about Patrick Garcia’s wedding have surfaced. The once Jaime “James” Collantes in Tabing-Ilog has finally tied the knot with one Nikka Martinez whom he has an adorable daughter. And to crush your world even more and turn it into powder, we feature Patrick and Nikka’s photos from their engagement shoot and wedding. (Trust us when we say we are doing it with caution).

The engagement shoot and the wedding, in particular, proved that they are a match-made in heaven. Sorry girls for rubbing it in. But seriously, it is baffling to see the Warren we fell for during the Mula Sa Puso’s era has grown before our eyes yet his panty-dropper face has stayed the same. Nikka’s one lucky girl, eh? But honestly, this girl has almost everything a man could ask for either. Look at her playing with the camera, doesn’t she look gorgeous? Nikka, admit it or not, exudes sexiness and innocence.

With that kind of beauty, we bet any gown would suit her, but it was Jazel Sy‘s signature sheer gown–together with Steven Deloso‘s flair in makeup and Onin Teano‘s skills in hairdressing–that made her the most envied woman in Manila.

By the way, these photos are by the Nice Print Photography, the wedding photographer of the stars. We are seriously running out of words to describe the way this team beautifully tells a love story through the lens.

So if you feel like checking this out, scroll it down and prepare to be inspired…or jealous.

The Big Day

As promised, we bring to you captivating stills from our own Editor’s beautiful wood-chic themed wedding.

Set in the highlands of Tagaytay, the interior of Iglesia Ni Cristo Church was filled with blossoming cascade of flowers, perfectly matching the bride’s and entourage’s flowers that were masterfully assembled by Vatel Manila. Our bride, who was beautifully dolled up by Hazel Gonzales of HG Studio, was as if walking on a bed of flowers in her Von Lazaro’s dress which exuded elegance and divinity. Meanwhile, it was Joel Faller who styled the church and reception venue. Instantly, he turned the shore into a floor of sea treasures where the table accents seemed like it all came from the deepest of the sea. Of course, this would not sail smoothly without the helm of Marj Dizon and her magical team. They navigated the vessel toward a fun-filled evening of laughter and dancing. We were all on our feet all-night long.

Moreover, Nice Print Photography has proven again why they are considered as the default to-go to by many. They have shown why they are one of the best, and we will just let these photos and video speak for them.
