Isang araw… Bago magka-lantahan… Binulabog namin ang mga sunflowers sa University Avenue… Awa ng Diyos walang sumulpot na Zombie. (And yes, pinagalitan kami ni Manong Guard dahil akala nya totoong namitas kami ng sunflowers.) XD
Maraming salamat kay Rhea Apolinario at Nap Apolinario ng NAP (Nap Apolinario Photography) XD
(*Note 1: No sunflowers were harmed in this pre-nup.)
(*Note 2: Nap used to cover weddings before his current job took him away from the wedding scene. Thank you for coming out of semi-retirement to shoot us with sunflowers. XD)
The wedding invitations are now out. The concept of “old book of fairy tales” took on a Surat Journal-esque twist in honor of one of our secondary sponsors (yup, he makes those journals KC Concepcion mentioned over on twitter and instagram).
The whole project was drawn using a CDR-King graphics tablet. Sadly, my old Wacom Graphire4 broke down before I got to use it for the invitations. For programs I used Paint.NET, ArtRage 2, and a lot of MyPaint for the stylized kitsch-type digital drawing and painting.
After printing a couple of mock-ups on a Canon Pixma printer, Mami and I decided to have them printed at ALVA Photocopying and Printing Stall (a shop in the UP Shopping Center) instead since it would cost too much ink-wise if we printed it ourselves. The after a sleepless night of cutting up Marikina leather, stapling and sewing… The invitations are done.
Quite a long process but it was worth it.
We were interviewed at the Mary Immaculate Parish last 01 December 2012 by Fr. Joseph, one of the priests there. We passed with flying fairies. We ate at Luk Foo after. XD next stop, the seminars on 15 December.
The cool videographers of Aisle 1401, one of the W@W Top 10 Wedding Suppliers for 2012, shot us as the Fairy Woodland Princess and Wandering Warrior King last Nov. 30. Thank you Anna, John, Miko and Drei. Can’t wait for the final product.
You can find them on the web below:
We had our second-to-the-last fitting last Sunday with Ron De Torres. Barong and Gown nearly done.
There’ll be a couple of signs at the wedding. One’s a “Here Comes the Bride” handheld banner (not pictured). There’s an A-frame “Happily Ever After Starts Here…” (first picture). Lastly there’ll be a corkboard timeline (second photo) tacked and pinned with our photos and date receipts (last photo, so Jenkinsonian-Archival, I know…)
Yup, we have our marriage license now. Look out, world. XD

Every year… Basta meron sa The Block…
Ladies and Gentlemen… I now have shoes.
Rajo! for Milanos.
The John Lapus snatched the pair I was eyeing minutes before we arrived. But it was for the best. The pointy-toed, black-fore to grey-sole model was tight around my toes. I shifted to the more stubbly black mid-cut pair. Hehehehehe, it’s more me. Mami for the pix.
