A NEW US!

Image
Welcome to the new face of wedding & reception styling. Now, more than ever, new, fresh, innovative and cost-effective setups will be within reach.

GREAT IDEA!

You have to give it to some couples who really take time to record every bit of their preps - online! With the increasing wedding activity in the country, helpful tools have also become available to the present-day couples such as http://www.weddingannouncer.com/ or http://www.mywedding.com/ to help update guests and friends as to the level of the preparations being done.

Is this helpful? Yes, we think it is. It also adds to building the excitement leading to the event day itself. Cons: you have to take time to work on this so as to not make it look "bitin". It helps to be honest, too, about everything, frustrations included. Otherwise, we think it's a fun thing to do together as a couple-to-be. :-)

TANGY-RIFFIC!

Meet TANGY, my new Mr. P desk lamp at the office. Yes, by the looks of him, he's going to get more fondling than I do. Awww, shucks. I think I should get another one.

WEDDING FILMS AND THEN SOME

If there's anything I really miss, it's watching films and writing about them after. Before I came to the Farm, I was in the medical field and wrote film reviews for Yehey.com and restaurant reviews for an Inquirer-Hinge Media Magazine on the side.

CHURCH FOCUS: ST. ANTHONY DE PADUA PARISH

Image
I've heard of this particular parish church only because this is where a celebrity couple got married in December 8, 2003 (okay, it's Julius Babao and Tintin Bersola, if you insist!) so my hopes were high that wow, this must be a really really nice church apart from the comments I've received that it is particularly old. So off I went on a 15-minute drive to Cogeo to check it out.

Okay, I guess we have to define "old" here. My idea of old is anything built in the 19th century and earlier, so when this chapel came into my range of vision, I was utterly disappointed. Why, it looks like it was just built in the 1970's! By the looks of that bell tower, it hasn't been completed. *sigh* One must never set one's hopes too high.
Unfortunately, the church was not open that day so I had to train my lens through an open window (climbed over plants, opened a window and aimed). It looks rather wide - are there six rows of pews? *phew!* It's rather wide and respe…

GONZAGA - GUIA (April 16, 2009)

In lieu of my usual photo collage opener, I am posting these photos taken during the proposal at Kawayan Farm in Pililia, Rizal. To the coolest couple ever, may your every evening be as special as today's ("...parang atin ang gabi.."), may you find in each other comfort and love ("...para bang wala tayong katabi..."), and may the good Lord lift up your spirits and grant you the happiness that you both deserve ("...at tayo'y sumayaw..."). From us, best wishes and congratulations! Ang astig niyo, pwamis! (Meganon?! Dahil diyan...) :-)


THE CEREMONY at the Avenida


The wedding at the Avenida began at 5PM. Would you believe it rained twice today? For the first time in my 5 years of doing this I wanted to cry. You have to give it to the bride though for her faith that it will eventually stop (it did). Everything was pretty much dry because the seat covers & the carpets were saved.

On your left are the three bride's maids looking pretty in motif d…
