To the fun stuff... our new friends Maritess and Ruzen’s wedding.. man.. good times. A week before their wedding, we had our lifestyle session with them so I got a chance to get to know in front of the camera and just hanging out having some fun. On the day of their wedding, both Maritess and Ruzen got ready in the same hotel but in different rooms. I looove when our wedding couples do this... for a few reasons. Mainly, I get to bounce back and forth with gi between the guys and girls getting ready. Not only that but I get to bounce ideas with dress and details shots with gi. That being said, given that they were in the same hotel, we had to be super careful that Ruzen didn’t see the dress... this entailed.. my lovely wife yelling any time she saw anyone looking like Ruzen coming our way =)
When Ruzen was all ready, I went with him downstairs and called Gi to let her know we were ready and did a reveal... awesome reaction guys!
We headed to the church where they had a beautiful Catholic ceremony tying in traditional Filipino rituals. One thing that can’t be seen in the pics was how funny their priest was... that dude was awesome (I just called the priest a dude... oh man...) One other thing that is worth noting was that day, was freezing! Like at one point..I lost all feelings in my toes cold… lol. The awesome part was everyone in the wedding party rolled with the punches... even people in the wedding party that has “zero percent body fat” didn’t complain. Virtual high 5 to all of you. One last note I have to mention is that the DJ nailed it with the best r&b tracks from the 90`s.
To our friend Amanda, thanks so much for introducing us to your awesome friends. It was great seeing you and Roddy that day. To my new friends Maritess and Ruzen, many many thanks for having Gi and I capture your special day. I’m going to say the same thing you guys said to us when we saw you the next day...welcome to our family...whatever you need, just say the word. Here are some pics to visually story tell your awesome day.
Your friend, Leon Chai
