Forever Love made in Lobo, Batangas

How time flies so fast, right? It's exactly...hours, from today 'til the wedding of our good friends Gerard Navarro and Nikki Jimeno.

a backgrounder...

Ge and Nikki were classmates of Bri during their elementary and high school days at Manresa in ParaƱaque. Nikki is also Bri's neighbor in Paranaque since way way back.
While Ge is a bandmate of Bri in Manresa. 

Yes! you got it right. Bri was in a band before and he was the lead singer :) Their gigs were mostly done at school affairs and other related events.

Anyway, going back to the story...So since Bri and I became a couple, I became instant friends with them. As if they don't have a choice hahahha! Well as friends, we would always go out on food trips, road trips, movie trips and so many other trips!

Road trips which include Nikki's lovely family resort house in Lobo, Batangas. I think I have been there twice already hehehehe :) The first time Bri and I were there was so fun! My good friends  Steph and Paulette were there too plus Jolibs & Merl, Gian & Karen and Ge. Nikki wasn't able to join us though since it was the week of her board exam :) Oh yes! It's Atty. Nikki Jimeno :)

The next time we were there we brought my baby pup Charlie along :) Oh my! how she enjoyed the beach. She literally did a "langgoy aso" hahahaha :) 

Now I'm starting to miss Lobo hahaha... 

So going back again to the couple, the said place is very meaningful to the both of them that they decided to do their pre-nup pictorial there. Awww! Sweet!

Here's Nikki and their pre-nup story:

Here are some of my favorite prenup pics. :) The locations are: our beach house in Lobo, Batangas; the Malabrigo Lighthouse; Punta Verde Resort in Punas, Batangas; and some farms and scenery along the way. 

The beach house is extra special because that's where Gerard did his soul searching sometime in 2009, and where he (supposedly) realized that he loved me and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. And that is where he also proposed at 11:30pm on November 11, 2010. :) 

We both can't pose even if our lives depended on it, so we just tried to be ourselves. Most of the good shots are those that are candid, and when we were caught just laughing at each other. I think medyo na-frustrate yung photographers samin when they tried to take "serious" couture pictures, kasi Ge and I were just so bad at it. Haha!

The shoot took place on August 15-16, 2011. Since it was overnight, we told the photographers to bring their wives and families, para vacation na rin nila, sort of. My best friend and matron of honor, Danielle Miller, also came along, fat baby Layla in tow. :) On day 1, we shot from 3pm until 10pm (with merienda and dinner breaks, of course) and the following day we shot at 7am until 11am. 

Nikki and Ge would like to thank photographers Ramon Mangila and Chito Vecina. Stylist Rochelle Romero and HMU John of Jesi Mendez.
