How do you live, laugh, and love?

To answer that question, we need to analyze the wedding of Jhellie and Ersus. 

photos taken by yours truly during the reception
a) Have a large backdrop that communicates the theme, "Live, Laugh, Love". Passion Cooks really outdid themselves once again in making sure the whole place had a happy vibe -- down to the variations of the red centerpieces on the tables. :) 

b) Be genuinely "bungisngis"... yes, laugh heartily and mean it each time. Your "happy-happy, joy-joy" feeling should rub off on your guests unless they all have stone hearts. (In the case of Jhellie and Ersus, their guests were just as "all smiles" as they were on their big day.) 

c) Pick entourage members who can be your co-conspirators in reinforcing the theme -- watch the SDE by Zoombox and you will see how the entourage members spiced up their entrance. Add monickers to the names of your entourage members so that their names sound catchy as these are announced one by one. Include those in the countdown AVP as well... that way, people really know who is considered the "Borgy Manotoc of Navotas" :) 

d) Plan your grand entrance and get a sound system supplier who will play your mp3s in the right sequence. (Yup, get Rejecktrew... :) Jhellie and Ersus sang "Please be Careful with My Heart" coming in, then danced a medley prepared by yours truly right after their song number. It was really great that Jhellie and Ersus chose dance songs which their guests would react to... :) Kudos to their coords for helping pull off the transition from the singing entrance to the first dance :) 

e) Be very natural & candid while delivering your vows... again, watch the SDE. :) Giggle as tears fall... :) Got Jhellie's permission to include their SDE in my blog... Thanks, Jhellie... :) 

So how do you "live, laugh, love"? Let's all learn from Jhellie and Ersus :) 



P.S. 
Thanks so much for the gift, Jhellie and Ersus... and for even taking time out to write a letter... I super appreciate the gesture... :)
