For the Cookies, that weekend was just like any other lazy weekends in Singapore. But with the help of our dearest Wedding Coordinator, we had something cooking there after all.
Finally, we had booked a photographer/videographer. The service contract was signed and the date is set. But of course, the reservation fee must first be paid before we start jumping in joy. :))
We have booked the services of Ralph Alejandrino - http://www.ralphalejandrino.com/, to cover the photography and videography for the Cookie Wedding. And not just that, he actually threw in a "photobooth" add-on with our package. So no need to book that supplier separately. Inital peg was Baicapture - http://baicapture.com/.
So how did the Cookies learn about Ralph?
It was at Carl and Pipay's wedding at the Fernwood Gardens on 24 April 2010. Ralph shot their wedding. So at the reception when we had our photo taken with the newly-wed couple, we came up to him to say hello and also ask for his card. He is anice guy and usdging by the work he has done with Carl and Pipay's prenup photo and AVP as well as the on-site AVP, we were impressed by his talent.
However, it still took us a few weeks before finally deciding. As customers, we do have the right to look around for other options, too. :P
But, finally, we did book his services at the bridal fair. And that is another item ticked off the wedding checklist.
So, last major thing on the list - a hair and makeup artist. Names that are popping up as recommended by friends are -
- Barbi Chan - http://barbichan.blogspot.com/
- Jeng and Carlan - http://jengandcarlan.com/ - But it seems Jeng will be out of town on our date.
- Jesy Alto - http://www.thecolorartistry.com/ - Did Pipay's wedding.
- Val Villarin - http://valvillarin.com/ - Did Ri's and Chrissie's weddings
