GERARD+MAITA | WEDDING

Brides Preparation: Marco Polo Hotel – Cebu

Grooms Prepation: Waterfront Hotel – Lahug

Ceremony and Reception Venue: Casino Español de Cebu

Coordinator: Grace Sycip of Creative Concepts

Videography: Joey Rivera of Digital Minds

Photo Booth: Banana Booth

Cake Decorator: Marissa Unchuan/Grupo

It’s always fascinating and at the same time challenging to shoot destination weddings. You get the chance to meet new people and suppliers – from the coordinators, make-up artists etc. The ceremony and reception venue are all new to us so I have to have an ocular visit the day before the wedding and eventually meet Gerard and Maita for the first time.

I got astounded when Maita emailed me and asked for our photography packages for her wedding in Cebu. I was surprised nevertheless knowing that there are a lot of great photographers that are based in Cebu and after few email and texting exchanges she booked us. One of my worries of accepting her wedding in Cebu is that we have another wedding in Tacloban the day after. Meaning we have to make sure that we will be able to take the first flight from Cebu to Tacloban on the next day to catch our 10:00AM call time or else we’ll be busted! Anyhow, everything went smoothly. Our flight was on time and we were glad that we made it to our next wedding on time.

Anyways, here are some of the coolest wedding photos of Gerard and Maita’s wedding.

All photos are taken by Joey Reyna and Nelson Petilla.
