We can’t help but rave over what Theo and Ishie revealed about how the other partner has changed because of the love they share. With their love for each other and for God, they have become magnanimous, inspired and willing to sacrifice for the other and for their family. Yes, love has made them better persons. Their promise – “walang iwanan”.

There is no love like the first. For Jonathan and Lej, first love brought them to a journey of a lifetime. From being high school sweethearts, they became long-distance lovers while they fulfill their dreams. And though fate messed it up a bit, fate made a way to let their paths cross again and for second chance to take its course. Such is true love, sweet and enduring.

Although Alcid and Che have been civilly married, they have set their hearts for a church wedding here in the Philippines. They are based in New Zealand with two kids. But the couple made us proud when they decided to get ICP and booked us almost two years before their church wedding date. To Alcid and Che, we take our hats off to you and thank you for your confidence in us.

In less than 2 weeks before their wedding day, Lexter and Maripet showed us how to be true troopers. They gamely acted in front of our cameras unmindful of the heat of the sun or the rocky hills they had to climb or even getting scratched by the wild grass. Not a word of complaint was heard from them.

We believe that their virtue of good-naturedness was one big reason why their wedding went so well. They are one of the most down to earth and pleasant couples we’ve worked with.

Tonight, we’re sharing with you their same day edit video featuring some scenes from their concept video shoot.

It has been a long time since I had to shoot on my own until I was given the opportunity to do it again on Patrick and Debee’s nuptials. I can’t help but remember my first wedding shoot in California in 2010 wherein after the wedding, I was out alone in the cold, walking for almost 4 miles while carrying a few cameras and some heavy equipment.

It was a good thing that on Patrick and Debee’s wedding, my wife Rhea stood as my production assistant, my cousin Titin did some 2nd cam duties during the ceremony and the couple’s first dance, while my other cousin Lianne did all the driving for us. ‘Twas such a relief! With all the assistance, I believe I did quite a good job here in Pat and Deb’s video.

To Patrick and Debee, thank you for trusting me (and my wife Rhea, Tin and Lianne) in capturing the moments of your special day! Indeed, it was such a joy shooting and editing your video. Your wedding made me realize that I could still do all the things all by myself in a wedding shoot. Although, I missed my team more. Hahaha! This wedding of yours will always be special to me.

Again, thank you for letting Ian Celis Productions cover your wedding day!
