I’ve always loved the words to this song. It’s odd but familiar, and nothing short of perfect.

Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties, and one day, passed away in his sleep. And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days, and passed away. I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong, that I know, that I am, I am the luckiest.

Gabriel didn’t cry. He wept.

It was sweet and funny and endearing because he doesn’t really strike you as the crying type, and my heart was bursting with happiness for Aileen, because goodness, to be loved that much is the best thing. And how lucky are they both to have found each other in this lifetime.

Gab and Aileen, Jeff and I had a wonderful time with you! The day was incredibly happy and so much feel-good, it lingered for days. I’m completely in love with how in love you two are with each other, and we hope you always love like this. Wishing you both all the best, always.

Karl and Cheryl 01

It’s impossible to tell the story of Karl and Cheryl’s wedding without saying how much it meant to us to be there. See, back in 2007-2008 when Jeff and I were just starting out, we bought our first DSLRS and lenses from this little camera shop in Greenhills. We were still so young then and could only swing for the barest of equipment. Each purchase meant using most of whatever we had in savings at the time, so we remember each of them well. Last year, without knowing us personally and this story, Cheryl, the daughter of the family that owns that same shop, booked us for her wedding.

It’s been six years of shooting weddings for us now, and it’s been nothing short of amazing. We’ve covered a lot of beautiful, heartwarming weddings since then, and we remember every single one, but somehow this was a little bit more special. I felt like I could tell the scared 24 year old version of me, who was on the verge of pursuing something so uncertain, that everything is going to be just fine.

Karl proposed with a flashmob at Eastwood last year, and just watching the video again tonight tugs at my heart something fantastic. These two are lovely together. They exchanged vows at a charming garden ceremony at Antonio’s earlier this year, and we were thrilled to be there. There was love and joy all around, and of course, Cheryl’s dad’s crying made me cry, too. It’s almost always the dads that make me cry.

Karl and Cheryl, thank you for the trust, your endless warmth, for still being the source of our regular instant film fix after all these years, and your wonderful spinach dip. Hahaha. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness. ♥

Jon and Michelle 00

The moment Jon saw a photo of Michelle, he knew he had to meet her. It’s a long story that involves Friendster (tee hee), a concert in Houston, Texas, and him selling front row tickets just to get her number. It’s true what they say about fortune favoring the bold, yes? Because he got her number, and five years later, he got to marry her.

These two are unbelievably charming. Jon was the one who emailed to tell us all about them, and the way he easily shared their story and how fondly he wrote of what they have together just completely won us over. He also secretly learned how to play the guitar for months, and wrote her a song that he played on their wedding. And Michelle, she’s this bubbly little thing that just brightens up every single room she walks into with her smile. One of the happiest brides we’ve ever met. All good vibes. When you see them together, you know without a doubt that these two are in love, but more than that, that they’re the best of friends. And you can’t help but cheer them on.

Jon and Michelle, it was an absolute pleasure to document this time in your lives. Jeff and I are so happy for you, and we hope to bump into you guys again soon! Much love!
