You know what happens when your making plans? Life. Sarah and Edison were more than ready to get married, but they suddenly found themselves needing to fast-track their plans. Sarah’s father sadly passed away, and a long-held Chinese practice is to get married within a hundred days of the death or wait for another two years. They took the plunge (of the plunge they are already taking) and decided to go for the more immediate route.
What they pulled off was near impossible. This meant booking San Sebastian Church for the ceremony and the Marriott Grand Ballroom for the reception, along with invitations for about 1,700 guests. They also managed squeeze in an adventurous but super elegant pre-wedding shoot at Tinipak River in Tanay, Rizal (you should see it). Sarah and Edison did all this with hardly any hint of a rush and with grace and serenity. And we are privileged to capture it all for them.
In today’s feature of the photos of their wedding celebration, we witnessed their heartfelt exchange of vows and the poignant, tearful moments between Sarah and her family. Her father’s memory lives on with them, and now, Edison is there to love and take care of Sarah and they can embrace the future and share their life together.
Life happens when you’re making plans. For Sarah and Edison, they were able to uphold tradition, honor those who have gone ahead, and begin a new chapter of their lives. They did everything with such grace and class and Metrophoto is grateful to have played a part in all of these. Enjoy the photos.
