This wedding was so much fun to be a part of! Jake & I immediately fell in love with Ton & Alive and their beautiful family & friends moments after we settled in. I mean what is not to love? Don’t let these gorgeous Hollywood models fool you! They seriously are two of the kindest people you will ever meet. And they both could not have hand picked a better team to stand beside them. Their love for each member of their bridal party showed as they interacted throughout the day. And Ton & Alvie were an absolute dream to photograph and hangout with! The day was nothing short of perfect! From their Hollywood looks to the beautiful venue choice, the Westin in Town Center, Virginia Beach; every single detail was a dream! If we could photograph weddings like theirs every day we would be in heaven!
Not only was their wedding party so perfectly picked, they picked an incredible dream team to help the day go so amazing. Jamie with Jamie Leigh Events did a phenomenal job keeping everything flowing so smoothly. Some of my favorite moments of Ton & Alvie’s day were the pink champagne slumber party photos in the hotel bedroom. I loved being a part of this because you could tell Alvie’s girls were so happy to celebrate her. I also enjoyed Ton’s 7-8 different expressions as Alvie came down the aisle at the ceremony. He went from excited, to nervous, to should I cry, to pure joy and everything in between in the matter of seconds. Okay, I still have more favorite parts of the day! I enjoyed riding on the bus from the ceremony sight back to the Westin. Just watching everyone have fun and enjoy the moment. I was even so impressed how well the guys behaved for their groomsmen photos having that many shots in them! SO impressed! And then at the reception I just loved watching everyone have such a great time. I was shocked to look down and see that it was near time to go.
These two have waited a long time to get married, 10 years to be exact. Their day had such a Hollywood wedding feel and they were surrounded by so many people who love them so much. They next day we even got an invite to Alvie & Ton’s parent’s house. My husband being a true Filipino definitely didn’t turn the invitation down. I am so glad he didn’t because we got hang out with their amazing family a little longer. Ton’s dad has the most incredible man cave that he built by himself! I was impressed. This might be one of the longest blog posts I have ever written, but I hope it communicates how blessed we were to be a part of such a gorgeous wedding. We will cherish the memories forever! Wishing this gorgeous couple a wonderful honeymoon & a beautiful start to their journey together. So many blessings Ton & Alvie. Thank you SO VERY MUCH for letting us share in such a great day! So much love! Jake & Jen x0x0
