It was time to leave at 4:45 am, the rain was pouring hard and I can hear the swoosh of the wind as I drove out of our garage. When I reached the bride’s home at 5:30 am, the lights were all on and a lot of people were already moving around. It was, after all, the big day of the youngest of five siblings and the last one to get married. As the sister of the bride said– “Sarado na ang tindahan ng mga Icasas.”

At the other side of Alabang, the groom woke up early and rarely got enough sleep. He and his family were being photographed at 4:30 am, while the rest of the country was still sleeping. It was hard to convince the groom to wake up that early, but he did– for his soon to be wife.

To dear JV and Kristine, we would like to thank you for simply letting us be a part of your simple, beautiful, heartfelt, morning wedding. Witnessing the roundabouts of Kristine’s family the whole morning and the smiles and laughter of JV’s family throughout the day, we just knew where you both got your simple, happy and loving disposition.

It was a great experience getting to know you both. You are such an inspiration to us. To Kristine, who inspired me to roll pieces of paper, I know you will be a great wife and mother! Good luck on your cooking! And to JV, who travels all the way from San Juan to Alabang, I’m sure you’ll be a wonderful partner and head of the family.

We know that with the guidance of your loving families, supportive friends and with God by your side, you will have a rock-solid marriage and a wonderful family of your own.

May God bless you both! Keep on making each other laugh.

All our best,
Empire Weddings

The weather forecast for the day: Cloudy and Rainy. And indeed, there was an outpour not only of rain, but of laughter, tears and love.

Knowing that the couple lived in the US, we found it touching that they would want to go back here to celebrate their special day. It amazed us to know that people would literally go the extra thousand miles just to be married in their native land. Planning was done through a series of unending emails and skype meetings. Thank God for technology! We were just blessed that our couple and their families were really into making their wedding a dream come true, even if they were half-way across the world.

To Tita Cora, the bride’s aunt here in the Philippines whom we relied on for innumerable details, thank you for welcoming us into your home. You have been very warm and kind to us from day one, making sure we were well fed for our meetings that lasted for hours. Thank you.

Tyrone and Angela, it was our pleasure to be part of your wedding. It was great getting to know you and your wonderful families. Thank you for your patience in answering our long and unending emails and for skype-ing with us even if it was late at night your time. We wish you countless years of happiness, success and good health!

All our best,

From the moment we first met our client, we knew that it was not going to be like any other wedding we have done. For one, we were meeting a “representative” of the couple as compared to the usual bride and groom. Second, we just met a mere two weeks before the wedding. Third, well, our couple has already been married for 50 years. Yes, FIFTY. And that made all the difference.

Come to think of it, what can happen in fifty years? That’s 50 sets of birthdays, Holy Weeks, Christmases, Valentine’s days and anniversaries. Perhaps few occasions of baptisms, first communions, family trips, weddings, death and even national elections. That’s worth 50 years of memories, of triumphs and failures, of a family growing bigger, of friends that come and go.

So the biggest question in mind was – How do you celebrate a golden wedding anniversary? The Guasa family knew just how to do it – and it was perfect.

It was a celebration of love. From the sweet kisses and gestures at the bridal suite, to the beautiful vows at the Church and loving messages at the reception- everything just seems to come by like a confetti of hearts and shimmers of love. One would immediately know that this couple had been through the best and worst of life, and their love and respect for each other have solidified like a rock.

It was a celebration of life. It did not matter if the guest list increased by a mile, just as long as the people that they cared about were there. Relatives and friends flew from the provinces to be with Teddy and Lydia. They were blessed to have five loving children and seven talented and just as beautiful grandchildren. These are the things that mattered the most to the couple. It was just a big bonus that the whole family was talented. The groom sang as “Ikaw” as his bride walked down the aisle. The siblings, children and grandchildren also took centre stage without any hesitation. And it was indeed one spectacular show- We were lucky we did not even have to pay for it.

To Ms. Marley, it was great getting to know you and listening to your stories. For us, you were more like a mother rather than a client- even if it was only two weeks of being part of each other’s lives. Thank you for welcoming and embracing us as though we are part of the big family. You will forever be imprinted in our lives.

To our golden couple, it was a pleasure being part of a momentous occasion like this. We were inspired by your love, strength, passion and dedication. You have a very beautiful and loving family. We only wish that you will be given more years together and that each day will be blessed with more memories of happiness and love.

All our best,
Empire Weddings
