Like puzzles, we are waiting to be solved. We live to be complete. We breathe to be whole. We find bits and pieces of who we are in everything we go through and in every place we go to. And the final missing pieces we find in one person. Our Alpha and Omega. The one our paths lead to, no matter how crazy it can be. The one who completes us. The one who becomes our world.

For Ernest and Aleetha, everything came together the moment they laid eyes on each other. He was her missing piece and she, well, was the one he was born to find and keep until the end of time.

We ended the ICP Tour 2016 with this beautiful wedding of Adrian and Kathy in the Land of Smiles, Bangkok. Shooting destination weddings has allowed us to experience and witness stories that tell tales of love from defying distance and separation to waiting and finally finding the One.

This wedding inspired us with this thought – love is never what we expect it to be. When it comes, when it happens, and when it finally decides to stay, we become each other’s person.

Michael and Ryla’s journey to the altar is an interesting story to follow. Armed with persistence, commitment and a lot of love, it was meant for forever. Their wedding day was no different. Held thousand miles away from the Philippines, in a place with a weather, which is a lot of degrees colder than what we have, and without my team, their wedding was an experience I’d surely remember. It was freezing, a struggle not only for me but also for everyone who was there. But then, love works wonders. It’s the fire that keeps us warm. It fuels our passion.

Love fulfills the essential to our being. Sometimes, it is what we dreamt of, or like Ally, totally beyond her wildest imagination. What is constant though, is when you find it, you are never the same again because finally, you know why you are alive.

Sam and Francesca didn’t request any song for their same day edit video. They didn’t have any shot requests or any instructions for our team. They trusted that our team would deliver the style they loved about ICP, and that we would do our best.

So last night, I made sure their same day edit video would be cinematic, simple yet elegant.

To Sam and Cheska, congratulations, best wishes and I am so happy you loved what our team crafted for you last night! Cheers!
