This is my first out-of-the-country wedding and I must say I’m really blessed to have been part of Gatch and Minette’s wedding. They only invited 50 guests for their wedding and these are their close relatives from Batangas, some former classmates, close barkadas, officemates and us suppliers. They wanted a very intimate wedding and that’s what they had. Everyone knew everyone because we all flew in the same day and the same flight. We stayed at the same hotel, Novotel and ate breakfast together. Feels like we’re all part of one family and there was no pressure at all. Just pure fun.

And here’s our lovely bride Minette..
The wedding was at 5pm but since the shuttle can only pick us up by 9am, 3pm and 4pm. We arrived at Minette’s hotel around 930am. That’s 7 1/2 hours of preps. So we had lots of time to capture all the details we need and play with the couple outside. Here is one of Minette’s titas preparing the flowers for the wedding.
This is Sabi, Gatch and Minette’s little girl. She was watching Barney that time.
Some mother and daughter moment. Aren’t they cute?

What a way to start my year. Thank You Lord for these grace you’ve showered on me. I pray for more out of the country weddings so I can travel the world.
