the weddingsatwork online community celebrated it’s 10th year anniversary last march and we were there to join in all the fun. what’s not to like about the party? it was held at the fernbrook gardens – a venue we have yet to step foot on. bonding time with friends – both w@wies and suppliers. free food – that’s always good. 🙂
so, along with vena and neriz, we trooped towards daang-hari. traffic was bad in alabang (but not as bad as those coming from manila) but we eventually made it to fernbrooks. the party has yet to start when we arrived so we loitered around – taking pictures, partaking of the cocktail food and abusing the free photobooths. 😀
the wall of w@wies… we’re there. 🙂
we took lots of photos… here’s a few of vena and neriz. sana yung pics namin from their cam eh magka-copy kami. 😉
syempre, i took photos of my favorite subject. 🙂
soon the doors of the main hall opened and we went in to find seats. unfortunately (or fortunately), we found ourselves seated at the back. ang bilis mapuno eh. we reserved seats for bob, lette and company as they were still stuck in traffic.
dinnertime was then announced and since we were seated at the back, we had quick access to the buffet line. syempre nauna kami ni vena sa pila. 😀 we decided that it’s better for our wives to stay at our table at baka biglang may umupo pa while we’re getting food. yun pala d rin cla nag-stay dun while we were at the buffet… sila naman eh ni-raid ang dessert/pastries buffet located at the main hall. 😀
bob arrived as the program was about to start. the highlight of every w@w party is the supplier of the year awards. the way it is presented – with avp’s ala oscar awards – makes it even more interesting. this year, bob was tasked to do the avp and we were excited as to what masterpiece he came up with this time. and, syempre, we were cheering for kaye (of k by cunanan)… that she wins the whole thing this year. 🙂
the supplier of the year avp was jaw-dropping. jason magbanua‘s comments after the avp was shown said it all, “i think we should let bob make the supplier of the year avp EVERY YEAR.” it was that good. 🙂 see it for yourselves:
and read more about it here.
we were sad though that kaye didn’t win the supplier of the year (para sa amin, sya pa din panalo… hands-down. :-)). but we were happy na din for cecilio abad… who seems like a nice person and the wedding community loves him. so congratulations to him. 🙂
everyone was glued to the screens when the avp’s were shown.
bob chatting with fellow videographers, the guys from mayad studios.
the party ended with an unexpected guest… kamikaze. yup, a rock band in a wedding party. 🙂 pero since led, kamikaze's guitarist, is the son of wedding photographers edwin and ellen tuyay then, i guess, the guesting makes sense after all. 🙂
we saw kaye – our favorite caterer – just around the time we were about to leave. it’s always nice seeing kaye because she is a nice person. meeting supplier friends were the highlights of the night for us… a night well worth the traffic-laden trip. 🙂
