Supplier Ratings- Fit2BeTied & Ralph Alejandrino Photography

Wedding Coordinators
Fit 2 Be Tied
Price: P16,000 (presyong kaibigan…)
Inclusions: Shared Coordination, emcee and unlimited consultation kay Macan J
Rating: 5++

I really love this group. Not just because one of them is a family friend (Macan’s hubby is Mike’s bestman, their daughter Nica is our flower girl) but because sobrang efficient ng services nila. I wont talk about the pre-wedding meetings, and assistance na lang coz baka sabihin dahil kakilala or something. Basta God knows Macan was of great help samin. I’ll just talk about their OTD services. They came in early and they worked hard on that day talaga. I couldn’t trust my wedding to anyone else but them. hindi lang services but yung comforting words, and yung concern, I don’t think kasama sa bayad yun. I know galing sa puso nila yun and they really want us to be happy on our big day.

The way we distributed our souvenirs was not the traditional BM-goes-around-to-pass-the souvenirs on to our guests. We did it ourselves during the pictorial. After picture taking we give the souvenirs personally to our guests para mas warm, mas feel.. hehe… pero we couldn’t have done it without the assistance of our coordinators. They patiently pass on the souvenirs to us for distribution to our guests naman.

Haaay… cant imagine doing it without macan and her group.

During our prenup, walang reklamo si Ralph kahit sobrang layo ng location. And since hindi kami nakapag tight shots sa Caylabne due to restrictions, we scheduled a separate session sa QC Parks and Wildlife, at no extra cost. After 2 days din we got our pictures na. and he gave us everything, not just the best ones. Everybody loved the shots that we had, and the pictures he selected to put in our signbook. It was supposed to be a sign book, but it was so elegant nanghinayang ako pasulatan at mapatakan ng sarsa ng ulam during dinner time… so I just made a separate guestbook and the one from Ralph is in our house as décor hehehe…

On our wedding day, they came early also, and never missed a moment taking pictures left and right, and came up with 2034 shots, to be exact. Nagulat ako when he handed the cd to me days after the wedding, pitong cd! I like the shots. And a friend who’s into photography commented na ok daw talaga yung shots nya (sabi ko kse di ko afford si Jason Magbanua, hehehe… ) I told him I prefer the stolen shots, not much on scripted ones. Pero I also gave him a list of our must haves. He and his wife Tessa are also nice, medyo camera shy kami ni hubby and walang talent sa pagpo-pose pero they made us feel comfortable during the shoots and never complained kahit lagi akong nagta-time out… kakapagod din kse mag smile nang mag smile di ba.. haha… one thing lang, he doesn’t want hmua to put anything on my hubby’s face. Mas maganda daw natural looking, hehehe… ok lang. i agree with him. So I told hmua sa nose na lang para hindi naman makintab…

Another thing lang din is the AVP. Ok lang naman kse hindi naman talaga sya dapat kasama sa package… hiniritan ko lang, pumayag naman hehehe… nga lang hindi sya yung tipong me mga transition pa yung slides. Just the basic presentation lang on his mac. And yung music hindi din nasunod. Which I understand kse sa dami ng binigay kong pictures eh ginawa na lang syang background all throughout the program. So live band na lang yung naging background music.

Im looking forward to seeing our video na nga. Though we havent selected our photos for the album yet. this week... pramis!
