St Brendan Church Wedding | Hilton Pasadena: Don + Nina

We are very excited to post this blog since it is the first time that we have incorporated the couple’s perspective about their wedding. We thought it would be more meaningful and would add more impact to their wedding photos.
It is after all, their wedding story.

What is your most unforgettable wedding moment?

The most unforgettable moment is right when they open the door to the church and walking down the aisle and seeing all the guests and Don.  It is definitely mixed emotions of excitement, relief (that the stresses of wedding planning is over) and of course, nervousness.  And as a couple, the exchange of rings and when we said I do. =)

What do you like most about your wedding?

We absolutely had lots of fun at our reception!  We just loved how it turned out, the set-up and most of all the energy that the guests had.  We were concerned that guests would be too shy to dance so we decided to do a “last dance” which is our surprise choreographed performance to kinda get the party started but it looked like they’ve already started even before our performance! We had fun performing our dance (we’re obviously not dancers LOL), we think it showed how fun and silly we are as a couple. ;p

What thoughts were running through your mind during the preparations/ wedding march..etc..

I woke up early that day and I just couldn’t believe that the day is finally here.  I am a worrier so I was nervous about a lot of things.  But I kept telling myself that if things don’t go as planned, it is now beyond my control.  I was just calming myself the whole time, trying to clear bad thoughts, remembering to “walk slowly” and to put “flower over flower” (how to hold bouquet) and just focusing on walking down that aisle towards Don, coz I know that once we are together, everything will be fine.  -

Anything you want to say about your wedding.

We did a lot of last minute DIYs. The candy buffet was one of them, the ceremony programs, the escort cards, place cards, menu and table numbers. Also the favors we had to put together, my parents were bringing them from the Philippines. Don and I worked together to get all of these done, so it definitely felt good when we saw our DIYs done. We felt proud of ourselves.

We’ve always wanted a fun wedding, the kind where guests are dancing and kicking’ off their shoes.  We wanted guests to remember our wedding as the one where they had a heck of a good time!  And we think that the guests enjoyed the night, coz we sure did!!!

A lovely couple who wanted to have fun, who wanted their guests to have fun; and they did. Congratulations and Best Wishes again Don and Nina!

Thanks a million Mark Gonzales and Rodney Singzon for second shooting!
