I found this 4 year old video I made. It was taken during our Pa and Ma's 40th wedding anniversary in Cebu in 2006 which my siblings and I prepared from scratch with whatever limited resources we had. There was no event planner engaged.
Junnie bankrolled a major part of it. I had to design the invitation which my sister, May, finished off, assemble the giveaways (rosary bracelet in a red velvet pouch we had made), order red roses for the church, book the Pedro Calungsod chapel, reserve Mayi restaurant for the reception, engage Odik Lara for the photography (no video), and rent the van for the day. It was pretty challenging before and during the event, but we managed to pull it off.
Looking back four years hence, all I could remember are the happy moments we had as we celebrated that milestone.
I have this video as proof.
