Hosting for Jed and Halee at the UP Bahay ng Alumni

It’s always good to witness a friend’s milestones specially when you hear their stories of waiting, hoping and finally finding someone that makes their heart complete. Halee and I have served in the GCF Youth Ministry for a few years and we also get to lead worship together from time to time. In the recent year, we saw how her relationship with her boyfriend Jed progressed to their being engaged. It was wonderful. We were so happy for Halee.

After about a year of planning, they finally tied the knot and got me to host their special day. Here’s the vlog of their wedding reception held at the UP Bahay ng Alumni.

[WATCH] MICHAEL AND RONICA’S WEDDING AT CLEAR WATER REST HOUSE, TAGAYTAY

I love midday weddings, specially when they’re held at cool, open spaces that are close to nature. There’s something so charming about Clear Water Rest House–the green open lawn, the quaint cottage where preps can be done and the spacious patio that provides an excellent view of the Taal Volcano.

After the morning ceremony at Caleruega Chapel, guests arrived a little before lunch and entertained themselves to the brim by taking photos at the patio, posing for snaps at the photo booth and enjoying the candy bar. The weather cooperated so well. It didn’t rain and the sun gleamed with just the right intensity. Got to work with Jeo and Agnes Odulio again of Empire Weddings. More on the vlog below

A GAME-FREE WEDDING CAN BE JUST AS ENTERTAINING!

A game-free wedding reception program doesn’t mean you skip out on the fun! Cris and Roanne made sure their guests were entertained with great music from G7 band and Filipino cultural dances from the Salinlahi Dance Troupe. In addition to the sumptuous dinner, guests were treated to the different food carts/booths like Bono Gelato, Mixed Mobile Bar, Figaro Coffee, Krispy Kreme and Mr. Franks.

PEAK-SEASON THANK YOU VIDEO | Ingrid Nieto Vlogs

It was a bit hard to choose and fit tons of footage in under 5 minutes! But all in all, I would like to just thank my dear friends, clients, couples, brands, coordinators and organizers for a fun peak season in the midst of reading assignments and papers for my MA. Praying for more partnerships, projects and events this 2018. The Lord bless and make Himself known to you increasingly!
Love, your quirky vlogger/host, Ingrid.

Bru and Aina’s Wedding

Hosted the wedding of Bru and Aina last October 21, 2012. What a day that was! I just came from the ER to confirm whether I had dengue or not. I remember praying real hard that I won’t be confined yet because I had a wedding to host!

Thank the good Lord because the doctor let me go. She said my platelets at 150 were still within the normal range, but I had to come back the next day for another CBC. Even though I was feeling weak, I drank my vitamins and the meds prescribed by the doctor. I mustered my strength and drove to Fernwood Gardens with my mom.
