“When I saw you come down that aisle, as a filmmaker, my imagination just goes wild. I saw everything. I saw my future… the mother of my children. That was the rest of my life right there.”
They are both artists operating on both sides of the camera — Paul’s a renowned film director while Tin is a celebrated film actress/host. Beyond being artists, they are a son and a daughter — treasured by their parents, adored by their siblings.
They are friends to plenty, inspired by their character and story. They are lovers, faithful to God and truly blessed by Him.
Feel the love of friends. Feel the love of family. Feel the love of Paul and Tin.
“I wrote this vows two years ago when I was at my lowest…
I wrote this because it gave me hope that one day I would find someone that this would be for… and I did.”
Two wedding ceremonies.
Countless celebrations here and abroad.
One EPIC dance number.
Finally, we now present to you our collaborative project with ultra-artistic groom — the wedding of Gabriel Valenciano and Tricia Centenera.
Theirs was a wedding that a myriad of eyes were anticipating.
Theirs was held in an island paradise called Balesin — where only a few are privileged to have step on.
Theirs was not a movie but it could very well have been. It rained hard the day before the but it was bright and sunny come wedding day. Words were not scripted but were real, filled with with love and emotion — with a dash of humor here and there.
“Napapatunayan ko na talaga na mahal mo ako, tuwing sinasabi mong gwapo ako. Kasi yung nagmamahal lang talaga sa akin ang makakapagsabi nun tulad ng nanay ko.”
Chiz and Heart, it was honor telling your story. Thank you for the privilege.
“When I hear you laugh. When I laugh with you. Immediately I imagine us having wrinkles and being like this and moving like that… ang laughing. Because the sound of your laughter talaga… it just echoes through eternity.”
No, this is not a line from a movie (though it could very well be). This is a fragment of Echo’s vow to Kim — its entirety epitomizes their wedding.
Laid-back. Carefree. Real.

“”O ano yung na-feel mo nung lumabas na si Paolo?” I said to them, “I wanted to hold him up in the air and say, “Meron ba kayo nito?””
Extravagant and Intimate.
Two words that seemingly do not go together best describe the wedding of Paolo and Sam. Despite all the celebrities — surely there were plenty — in the wedding, it was diffused by the authenticity of the couple and the reality of the moment.
Thank you, Paolo and Sam (and the Valenciano’s and the Godinez’s) for entrusting us to immortalize your big day into film. It’s not everyday that one gets to meet a couple that have known each other all their life… and it was an HONOR to witness even a glimpse of such an amazing love story — a story only the Lord can author and create.
Marie-France. The bride. A former child star from Ang TV — a popular kids show in the Philippines — turned New York-based stage and TV actress.
Julien. The groom. He conquered balut, starts off his vows with, “Baby ko” and promised to “let Marie-france finish her sentences.” Btw, he’s French.
Boracay. The venue. It’s where they first met. It’s where they decided to be wed… and love each other “absolutely, unequivocally, unconditionally.“
Excited. Honored. Pressured.
Twice I posted those words on our Facebook Fan Page for a reason.
Excited because it was our first Palawan wedding. Who wouldn’t be? It’s advertised as paradise on earth… and I can say it’s as good (if not better) than advertised — so much so that I plan to go back there with my wife, Lette. 😉
Honored because our clients were Carlo Ledesma, internationally renowned filmmaker, and Cat Juan, writer/editor/model. To be handpicked by a couple who collectively knows how to be both behind and in front of a lens is, without a doubt, an honor.
Pressured because Carlo’s film crew was there… enough said. 😀
Mix those emotions together and here’s what we came up with for Carlo and Cat’s wedding highlights:
Carlo and Cat, I know you guys are now back in Sydney but may our deepest gratitude cross the waters and reach you. Thank you for the privilege.
PS Btw, the video that Cat and her bridal entourage were having a blast watching was a surprise music video by Carlo — a parody of Bruno Mars’ Marry You. 😀
Jolina, the bride, is a star in the TV and movie industry. Mark, the groom, is a star in the music industry. Yes, we knew from the very start that this IS a celebrity wedding.
But this is not your typical celebrity wedding. And this is not your typical celebrity love story.

It was a media-free wedding — a rarity for celebrity weddings. Yes, no other cameras were there — none from network TV, none from print media — except for ours and the official photographers —Mangored and Dino Lara. This ensured privacy, intimacy and romance… just what the couple wanted.
And it was truly a private, intimate and romantic wedding. The vows were something else — Jolina’s was not written… it was candid, on-the-spot, straight from the heart. Mark’s was not written.. but straight from the heart as well. In fact, when asked to read the vows during preps, Mark couldn’t — tears would fall whenever he tried.
It was an outdoor garden ceremony… with no tents… and no Plan B. But as proof that Mark and Jolina’s union is blessed… there was no need for Plan B — it did not rain. And after the reception, with only a handful of their close friends left — it rained hard.

Thank you, Mark and Jolina for the honor of not only covering your wedding… but for getting to know you guys personally. You guys are so kind-hearted, full of life and love. Congratulations!

Gorgeous people. Pretty faces. Beautiful couple.
That sums up the exquisite wedding of Paolo Trillo — manager, restaurateur, sportscaster — and Rissa Mananquil — supermodel, president, teacher, mother.
