Here's one of the sweetest SDE's we've ever seen. You know it's good because it weaves a story, it's got heart-warming / amusing soundbites, it tugs at the heart, the scoring is just perfect & above all, the couple's love for each other shines through and allows everyone to share in it.

Now THAT, my friends, is awesome videography. :-)

Hey Dylan,

Hope all is well. Everything is back to their normal phase now, although I have yet to assume my wifely duties as the hubby is still not based here. Funny that you can still remember me even after the countless weddings that you've done and the ongoing inquiries that are keeping your hands full at that moment. It is hard to keep tabs when there is a lot going on, but I guess you've grown used to that already.

I still do check out wedding-related sites and forums and even if we've already tied the knot, seeing wedding and engagement photos still fills me with excitement. Pretty details make my heart sing with glee! For how long this will continue, I can't tell but I'm happy with the state I'm in right now.

Now that I have the wedding photos, I can always look at them whenever I wish to. I now have this fondness for white Hyacinths. The first time I held those where during my wedding day. My, how it looked so lovely on the wedding photos! This is another case wherein the plan B proved to be a better one.


We are so glad that you are already making waves in the industry during the time when we were still in the pruning and selecting process. While my coordinator was pushing for a different florist, we stood firm in our decision to have you. And it was one of the wisest decisions that we will never regret.

To this day, you are still the one who holds that title of having that unique SoCal style and charm. You and your team of highly-creative individuals are always on the lookout for something new, different, and pretty --- much to the delight of bride-to-be's and yeah, even groom-to-be's.

You know your craft too well and even if you use the same flowers again and again, you still have a way of making it appear different. Even the boutonnières didn't go unnoticed. You make me want to get married again :) Thank you for being that and more.

For being early on the wedding day despite the heavy traffic; for replying back to my emails and patiently putting up with the changes such as the number in the entourage list; for liking my posts in FB; for my inclusion in the 100 Bouquets Project, etc. With that talent of yours, there's no doubt that you'll go places.

Regards to everyone - to the team behind Vatel Manila and {etc} Handmade Goodness! You guys are such a great example of God-given talents being put to good use :) Whatever it is that you do, you do with love. We are so happy that you've been a part of our special day.
