almost a month after getting the news, it finally made the papers. thanks to john rana, w@w co-founder, for the info on when it’s gonna be out. if not for him, we wouldn’t have known when it will be printed.
we knew it would come out today but we still almost forgot to get a copy. thankfully we remembered as we were on our way to tagaytay to attend a wedding (more on this on another post). buti na lang 7-11 still has copies of the paper. 🙂
our wedding’s writeup by bob nicolas though was cut-short for the paper. here’s the complete article straight from w@w.
Angel Diokno & Selle Felizardo
January 20, 2007
Bella Vista, Tagaytay
This couple booked us for an American backyard, spring-themed wedding at Bella Vista, Tagaytay slated at 6:30 in the morning. At first we thought they were kidding but they were not and so come wedding day, we started to shoot at 3 am, our earliest shoot to date.
The wedding of Selle and Dyoks was a very personal wedding… not grand… not big… but something simple and uniquely them. Wanting to feel the whole experience, the couple prepared the wedding all by themselves, deciding not to get a coordinator. They were very detailed, meticulous and hands-on from day one until the very day itself. From invites to reception gimmicks and everything else in-between, the couple showcased their creativity and put their personal stamp on their wedding which all the more made it beautiful.
Weddings are about love and this one was overflowing with it. Love from friends who involved themselves for free by customizing the couple’s unity candle, acting as officiant, musicians, emcees and on-the-day coordinators. Love from God who let His glory shine on a wedding which had no plan B in case it rained. Love for each other which was highlighted by their emotional exchange of vows. Kind-hearted and spiritual, they went way beyond the typical supplier-client relationship and treated their suppliers as friends… something that their caterer, makeup artist and photographer can attest to as well.
True to being a friend, they always have nothing but high praises of my work as evident by their several referrals and our sudden recognition in the W@W community this year.
Intimate. Emotion-filled. Simple yet elegant. When none of the guests are late for a sunrise, out-of-town wedding then it has got to be a very special affair. Yes, it was very special indeed. A wedding we will never forget.
