with all the lights, the carols, the gifts and just the spirit of the season, Christmas puts everybody in a celebratory mood. and just a day after Christmas, we were off to another celebration… the wedding of jc and angel.
angel is a former officemate of selle. years of working together and with their desks being of close proximity to each other (thereby giving them plenty of opportunities na mag-tsismis-an 😀), their friendship grew to the point that even when angel transferred to another department and then subsequently to greener pastures, their friendship remained. i could vividly remember an incident which probably could describe their friendship. we once saw angel at a local grocery store here in laguna and they were so thrilled to see each other that they scared a couple kids away with their over-the-top shrieks. 😀 it was a beautiful sight, seeing how close they are. 🙂
again, i played the unofficial backup photographer role (along with macoy wielding his olympus dslr) for this wedding. with this being the third time for us attending a wedding at the same church and reception venues, i tried covering the wedding differently. i’m not sure if i succeeded though. 🙂 but it was fun shooting with macoy and in this church because guests can creep in up close (had to… wala pa akong telephoto lens eh. hehe) and take those closeup shots… something i usually cannot do at large churches. since this was a daytime wedding, lighting was sufficient and low-light shooting was not much of a problem. buti na lang. 🙂
here’s are a sampling of the shots i produced at jc and angel’s wedding (click here for higher resolution photos):
another thing i like about this church is the presence of a loft… and anyone can go up to it and take overhead shots like these.
a couple of ceremony shots.
the first kiss sequence.
step 1: gaze into each other’s eyes and smile.
step 2: kiss
step 3: hug
so sweet. 🙂
post ceremony shots at the altar… with the first two being post-processed.
food was prepared by our favorite caterer, kaye. 🙂
dessert buffet laid-out in style… something that is expected from k by cunanan. 🙂
the cake cutting and wine toasting ceremonies.
the newlyweds enjoying the singles’ game.
the father of the groom leading a toast after giving a very touching speech… a highlight of the reception.
the gaynilo family followed up the touching speech with their very own touching gimik starting with a handwritten note read by his sibling, followed by a song rendered by his other sibling which segued to the father-daughter dance. another highlight.
the smiles say it all. 🙂
congratulations, jc and angel. remember the wise words spoken at your reception… they’re true. 🙂 married life is fun… enjoy it every day. 🙂
a Christmas wedding
