Travel to the place
Where mind set to peace,
No one can see,
Feel us free.

Travel to the place
Where we can breathe,
Fill our desire,
We wish; we aspire.

Travel to the place
Where we have silence,
Flower of fragrance,
And nature to admire.

Travel to the place
Where we can write,
Lines of rhyme,
At any time.

Travel to the place
Where we have enough space,
Work without race,
No tension on face.

Travel to the place
Where we can dance,
Sing at glance,
Bit of time to romance.

 Travel to the place
Where we spread love,
Freedom to serve
And land to move.


Travel to the place
Where we can live,
Of joy and sprinkle its grace,
And do anything, anywhere.


We’re always delighted to cover uniquely themed weddings, and it was a Peanuts-themed-Baguio wedding for Chuck and Anna! From their boutonnieres, flowers, to their wedding cake, everything was just adorable with Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and many others. Looking at how much they prepared for everything makes you think that the wedding was gonna go without a hitch. But the weather in Baguio wasn’t as excited as we were. And nothing spoils a beautiful garden wedding more than unexpected rain. Good thing was, just before the ceremony started the light drizzle came to a halt, and the rain clouds dispersed to bless us with the most perfect weather you can have for your wedding. It’s just amazing how God answered all the prayers from the couple and their loved ones in a buzzer-beater-kind-of-fashion. Oh and a little sundance here and there from Chuck and his friends kinda helped too.

Joe and Sharon’s big day had everything you’d look for in a wedding: the perfect weather, a beautiful garden ceremony, tear-jerking speeches, a dazzling firework show and an epic after-hours dance party that lasted ‘til 3 in the morning.  Guests flew in from all over the world including Joe’s home, the UK, to be part of the big celebration. It was definitely the perfect day for Ron and Joe, and one filled with so much love.

Both Joe and Ron have previously been married which they say have made them cautious with falling in love again. But when the two are together, their chemistry is unmistakable and extends even to their friends and family that draws everyone into their world of love. Even we were hooked into the festivities! Joe and Ron have definitely met their match in each other.

Congratulations to Joe, Ron, their kids Alexandra, Tin, Christian and to their wonderful family!

Boracay has always been a well known beach destination for tourists. Mainly due to it’s white-powder-like beaches, beautiful sunsets, and crazy parties. But for Ron and Mika, the captivating island holds far more value in their hearts. Amidst the salty sea and  blue, this was where Ron first asked Mika to be his girlfriend. Time, however, was not his ally and he didn’t get the yes he wanted right then. Yet giving up was never an option, and with a little more time and effort he eventually charmed Mika into giving him her sweet yes. Although he succeeded at winning her heart, this eventful yes didn’t happen on the same island where he first asked her. So having their wedding set on Boracay was Mika’s way of finally saying yes to before, but this time it was also her yes to forever.

A yes that came with a week full of laughter, tears, and tequila! As their family and friends got together and partied until the beach couldn’t take any more tequila! It was truly a wedding filled with love and beauty and of course the beach! This couple’s memories of the ocean will definitely be remembered way long after their footprints on the sand are gone.
