July 28, 2016 – ALDUB-MaiChard Experience, It’s all worth it!

My MaiChard Heart will forever be grateful to you @AldenRichards02 & @mainedcm and to July 28, 2016.

July 28, 2016, Eat Bulaga at Broadway Centrum – So far my most unforgettable experience in my fangirling life.

I slept at 1:30 in the morning, after I watched Direk Pat on Periscope while nakikipagkulitan with Direk at sa mga gising na ALDUB-MAICHARD Nation, literally I  had a hard time sleeping because I was so excited being in broadway today to watch Eat Bulaga live on its #ALDUB54thWeeksary then I woke up 3:30 in the morning, started to prepare cause we have to leave Batangas by 5:30 to head to Broadway Centrum, and because we were all excited and we’ve waited two months for this, we didn’t want to be stuck in traffic. Early bird kami, we were a group of 10, I was with my Wedding Coordination Team.

Waited for quite a long time on the queue, we were seated apart, located on the top-most right and center. We even sat on the stairs just to have a better view of what’s happening on the stage.

We even had our group’s  banner hoping that Alden and Maine could notice or our other Dabarkads especially Ms. A.

ADMC WPC

Having that situation, I almost lost hope that I could still find a way to meet Alden and Maine up close to personally give my gift and letter to them. After the show, I asked one of Eat Bulaga’s crew if I could talk to Direk Pat. (since she already noticed me in Periscope with my username @justmemajella I remembered saying, Direk pa groufie naman kami with you po. Please. Hehehe.)

There were a lot of people still on stage taking selfies with the That’s my Baes while I was waiting for Direk Pat to notice me so that I can handover my gift for Alden & Maine but I guess she was so busy with other concerns at the backstage and it took her a while, then I saw Alden going out of broadway through the audience exit. There were other girls in a state of shock upon seeing him too. As in natulala kaming lahat kasi di namin ineexpect na lalabas sya doon kasi a lot of people were waiting for them at the artist entrance. Para s’yang isang apparition “Mala may dumaang Anghel feels.” That was a very close encounter with Alden, he was already rushing to leave broadway with his entourage for his Perfume Collection launch in Market Market, since I already have that chance to give him my gift & letter for Maine and him I grabbed that opportunity.

When he heard me said, Alden, please take this, this gift is for Maine, he stopped, looked back, received the gift & the tarp and said “Ok po, ok po!” with a very gentle voice and all smiles on his face he then said “Thank you po.” Then he left. 😊 That happened so fast, less than 30 seconds I guess, but it will forever be etched in my 💙 No selfie, no picture just a beautiful memory. I’m so happy and overwhelmed, that you took it and have it given to Maine.

To my surprise, when I reached home around 6:30 in the evening, I saw several missed calls from @lindseyuritz and a tweet with this screenshots.

I had mixed emotions, I didn’t know what to do first, should I read the tweets, or call my cousin, or started blogging or should I watch Direk Pat’s periscope. Grabe as in nanginginig ako. Lost for words and thoughts, that’s what I felt pero super happy ako, as in tumatumbling ang MAICHARD heart ko.

This is the card I gave Maine, I took a picture of it before I wrote my letter to her and Alden, and the gift that I chose to give her is something that she can take for her “DINOSAUR”. I care about her, and most especially her concerns about her health. I hope this could help her much that it helped me and all the other women suffering from dinosaur problems every month.

Maine and Alden, you just don’t know how blessed I am to have the chance to see and look after you from afar. To meet you in person is already a bonus. For you to actually take my gift & read my letter is truly one of the best gifts you’ve given me. You are indeed one of my daily dose of happiness in this world full of trials and uncertainties. You are an inspiration, you made me believe in the goodness in people and that love and happiness are the most wonderful thing that we could share. You made me wait for my forever and believe that destiny truly happens.

I assure you that I will be supporting you both in your future endeavours. I will always pray for your happiness, for your safety and more so for your forever and smooth journey in life and career. I will always choose to fight for you and protect you and I will never get tired of shipping for what you know would be best for you.

I am still looking forward to have that chance to have a picture with you and that chance wherein you could sign the magazine where I have articles written about you and Eat Bulaga. I know our Tamang Panahon will come and will be patiently waiting for that moment.

I love you both. I’m @justmemajella, a Professional Wedding Planner, and I am GEMBSO. We call our FC ALDUB-MaiChard Wedding Planner and Coordinators cause that is what we truly are.

#MayForever – Oo, Naniniwala Ako Sa Forever!

Just my thoughts about Valentine’s Day, LOVE and FOREVER!

Whenever people are asking me if I believe in forever, I always say YES, without a single doubt. YES!  I do believe in forever and in the unexplainable power of love. I believe in destiny, serendipity, magic, miracle and all the other words you could probably relate to love. True love, great love, first love, selfless love, genuine love, puppy love, pure love, platonic love, romantic love, love at first sight, or whatever you call it; the main word is LOVE! Love speaks in different languages, it can be expressed in so various forms but one thing is for sure, the main reason why we all exist in this world is LOVE! Just like what the song says, “All we need is LOVE”.

Since it’s the day of hearts I know you would see various posts on different social media platforms like FB, Twitter, IG and Tumbler about love. It could be an expression of love from a husband to his wife; a love from a groom to his bridegroom; a profession of love from suitor to the girl he has been courting; a love from parents to their children, or just a love from fans to their idols and inspirations. On the other hand there’s also a chance for you to come across posts about bitterness with regard to love. Those brokenhearted and betrayed people choose not to appreciate the significance of this day. They treat this day just like any other ordinary day, and most of them believe that this too shall pass.

I can’t say that I have already experienced how this day should be celebrated and I never said that I haven’t celebrated it all along; but there’s no right or wrong way on how to do it. As long as you have so much love in your heart that you could share with others like your family, friends, relatives, loved ones, partners, better half or to God you can celebrate this day with joy and happiness in your heart.

Everyone deserves to love and be loved. Worry not and fear no more; fill your heart with love and appreciation not with hatred and anger. Don’t be bitter; it won’t do you any good. Always keep a silent prayer in your heart that eventually your dream will come to reality where you will be looking forward to spend Valentine’s day with somebody who loves you too. The one that God has made for you.

As for now, though I still don’t have the love of my life yet; I can still say that I am happy! I am happy to see people who are in love. As a Wedding Planner, I have the chance to plan the weddings of my GEMBSO couples who have different beautiful love stories to share. As a fan of Alden and Maine, I am privilege to see how serendipity found its way to their hearts and how their love has grown and transformed from AlDub to MaiChard, truly one of the greatest stories ever told right in front of AlDub and MaiChard Nations’ eyes. Lastly, as a daughter, I have been a living witness on how my parents have shown that true love and forever do exist.

Happy Valentine’s day everyone! Don’t let this day pass without saying I love you or mahal kita to the ones you love.

Make each day a Valentine’s day!

Maid of Honor’s Speech #CoreeNellWedding

What the Maid of Honor said to her little sister’s on her wedding day. Read on!

majNcoreeneGood Evening! For those of you who don’t know me, I am Maj also known as Majelle, a very proud sister of this stunning bride and one of Nell’s colleagues in GEMBSO. If there’s one person who knows almost every detail about their wedding and what the preps were all about aside from them I am happy to say, that is me 🙂 Tonight, I could really say it’s my little sister’s wedding 🙂 literally it is. I want to start this by congratulating the newlyweds, and thanking all of you for coming here to share this very special day with our families.

Looking at the two of you now, I am really having whirlwind of emotions? I know that COREENE has found her perfect match; the one she truly deserves that God has made for her, and that is something I should be thankful for; but at the same time I feel sad, because starting tonight you will no longer live with us.

My heart is bursting with so much love and happiness for the two of you most especially today. Because you made it, you’re able to pull it off and your life together as a couple has been blessed to have a great and brand new start. I know that yours will be a marriage of long standing. I know you’ll have a wonderful adventure ahead of you, and with God’s blessings, your marriage will last for decades to come with little Nells and Coreenes too.

I never knew Nell until Coreene introduced him to me, several years back when he decided to join us in GEMBSO. So I can’t tell you much horrible stories about him, but I can say that I think he is great, he is kind, he is thoughtful and he is just the right man for my sister (Someone who can handle my sister’s mood swings). He’s easy going, interesting, easy to talk to, and he has a great sense of humor! (Based on Coreene’s laglagan stories about Nell). I’m not in the position to squeal though. Nell, we are very happy and honored to welcome you into our family. We know you are made to fit our “tiny happy clan” and we hope we’re made for you too. Kidding aside, Nell, you are one of us now and we love that cool idea to have you around. The Magpantays and The De Jesus’ gladly accept you with open arms and immense happiness.

Coreene, I want to give emphasis on how beautiful you look today; your glow radiates and so is the love and happiness that you feel. This has truly been a special day for me and for all of us here. Thank you for giving a totally different meaning to the words sisterhood that transcends through almost thirty amazing years of wonderful life you shared with me and I know for sure that more years will come our way.  I know most of you would agree with me that Coreene has brought so much joy into our lives, through her antics and own simple charming ways. She is a great friend with a different kind of sense of humor. “Cariñong brutal” but that is just her way to express her love for us. I know that she’ll bring that same joy into Nell’s life and family as well.

I would always remember the times that the three of us spent together; watching movies and travelling to other places to enjoy food. Those were really precious ones. Hoping that we can still continue to do it together and praying that I’ll have my own partner soon (fingers crossed) so that I won’t be the third wheel.

Coreene, Kapatid ko, This is it! The long wait and the searching is now finally over!  You are so blessed to have found the missing piece that belongs to your heart. Not everyone finds a match and you are so lucky because you have yours. Thanks for the extraordinary friendship that we shared and for the trust that both of you have given me. It is an honor to be your wedding planner and host and at the same time for the opportunity to be your Maid of Honor. I really appreciate the tiny gestures that show your concern for me and the importance you’ve been giving me all these years.

I’d like to give you a gift, to remind you of how much I love you. It’s a necklace with two inter-locking hearts. One belongs to you and the other is mine. We may no longer be living under one roof but I assure you that you’ll always be in my prayers. We may not hang out together often but remember you always have me isang message lang si Ate Maj, FB, Twitter, IG, Viber, BBM, Whatsapp at text.

Nell and Coreene, My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years, your love for each other will deepen and grow. Years from now, may you look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least. I wish you the very best. My love goes to the both of you.

Take each day and cherish your time together. Love one another and stand together. Put your love and your family first; your job and your hobbies second. Never forget to keep at least one good memory of each other everyday.

May your love be like the wind, strong enough to move the clouds, soft enough to never hurt, but always never ending? So here’s to love, laughter, and happily ever after. Cheers!

Team CoreeNell #PaandarWedding

One Amazing Team! If you do it with Love nothing will go wrong. Just give your full trust to your chosen suppliers and they will not fail you!

I was so excited when I found out that my sister, Coreene and Nell, now my brother-in-law have already decided to get married, it was December of 2014. Since I pretty much know them, I already have envisioned how it would be like on their wedding day. As the Wedding Planner, I exactly knew who the right people to call and trust. I knew who would be the perfect partners for their special day. And I was right! We actually made the right choices. We got the best team suitable to us. The team who can carefully take care of the couples’  needs, likes and wants. The team that is dependable, reliable, admirable, passionate, dedicated, and committed. A team of experienced wedding suppliers that has a reputable name; synonymous to the kind of product and services that they have been providing through the years.

This team made sure that every little detail,the nitty-gritty ones will be taken into consideration; that everything will be handled accordingly based on how we planned it. Though this couple is one of the most unique ones and easy to work with, they surely have some expectations in their minds that we all gladly exceeded.

If you are going to ask Coreene what she wants, she would just say “Simple lang, basta may Pink, Ok na ako dun!, Kung ano sa tingin n’yo ang maganda, masaya na ako dun! Madali naman ako kausap, basta may pink at may hearts!” She just wants to have simple, memorable and happy wedding and have it witnessed and celebrated by people who matters to both of them and their families.

For us wedding supplier one of the hardest word to define is the word ‘simple’. Everyone has a different point of view or perception of the word. I know most suppliers would agree with me. Simple could mean a lot, it depends on how you describe it.

Coreene and Nell’s wedding had been a mind-boggling and nerve-wracking challenge to most of their wedding partners especially to their florist/event stylist – Willy Tongco of Fioridella and their Couturier – Adam Balasa of Adam Balasa Couture. When they asked Coreene and Nell about what they wanted the answer was

“IKAW NA BAHALA!, Ikaw ang mas nakakaalam ng maganda! Ikaw ang magaling dyan, Kaya mo na yan!” WE TRUST YOU! Wala akong pegs basta may pink masaya na ako dun. “

Willy Tongco, my friend, thank you for being so kind and for accommodating our requests. You did not just wow everyone with your set up and paandar, you have exceeded our expectations. Ikaw na talaga Willy, kaya naman sabi nga ni Coreene, matagal ka na n’ya gustong isako kasi wala kang ginagawang hindi maganda. You are very creative, iba ka talaga! Salamat at #NaWillyTongco kami. You are truly #BatangasFinestFlorist Thanks to your team, Ate Jhec, Cesar, Jorge, Nonoy and Dennis of Fioridella flower shop.

Adam, kapatid, maraming salamat sa mga ganap mo. First time na nangyari na ang bride at buong entourage ay walang kaalam-alam sa mga design, sa magiging itsura ng mga gowns na gagawin mo at hindi man lang kami nangamba. Hinayaan ka namin gawin ang sa tingin mong maganda, babagay sa bawat isa sa amin at hindi kami nagkamali. We put our full trust in you and you delivered, you never fail to amaze us. You made us all look great on our gowns the mothers and the rest of the entourage. You have made Coreene the prettiest on her wedding day. You have enhanced what she already has and showcased her assets and hid her flaws. Amazing ka! Good thing she was able to give justice to the very elegant and timeless gown you have made for her. She was in love with her wedding gown and everyone was asking who was she wearing. She is so happy and proud to say, we are all wearing Adam Balasa! #BatangasFinestCouturier Thanks to Jinn Ross and Myri for the assistance too!

Georgia, thank you for making my sister the most beautiful bride on her wedding day iba talaga pag #Georgiafied lakas maka-feeling celebrity. Special thanks to JR Medrano, Pauline Prieto and Rubi Sarmiento for taking care of the girls’ hair and make up. Ang saya lang pag kayo ang kasama. Chillax lang. We love it!

For their cake, Myra & Lea of Nanay Aveling’s asked them the same question and they just said we just want it to be simple with hearts design in shades of white and pink. They just made a very beautiful cake perfect for the couple; and to our surprise when they sliced it the color of the cake was pink too. So sweet and so cute! I know nahirapan din kayo sa challenge ni Coreene. Thank you talaga!

 

For their invitations, they just wanted it simple and classy with touches of white and pink.  Anna and Nikki, eagerly assisted us in choosing the perfect invitation and they made it just the way the couple wanted it.  While Dennise and Josie of Design Plus assisted us with other printed stuff and Rizah of Paper Creations took care of the Misalettes. I can really depend on all of you basta usapang papel, prints, invites, envelops atbp. Kayo number 1 sa akin!

The Souvenirs for the guests were given by the MK Family (Kuya AJ, Ate Maricel & Baby MK) while the souvenirs for the principal sponsors were made with love by Coreene with  the help of Tito Jed and Jovel.

With regard to lights and sounds, we can never go wrong with RM Lights and Sounds.  Tito Ray Mayo, Jobert, Alvin and Jeff of Team RM made sure that the mood lighting, special effects, musical scoring and audio will be just right for the program. Again kayo pa rin ang favourite lights and sounds supplier ko. You are indeed one of the best and may malasakit sa program at sa katrabaho. Mabuhay kayo!

When it comes to music Totally Mesmerized is our most trusted partner in providing awesome and pleasing entertainment to our guests. Sa galing nila parang CD ang pinapakinggan mo, siguradong mapapakanta at mapapaindak ang mga bisita walang halong bola. 

Sabi nga ni Coreene, kahit di ko pa alam noon kung kelan ako ikakasal eh alam ko na kakanta sila sa kasal ko. This team will always be family to us and to GEMBSO. Shout out to Tiffany, Diane, Jun, Billy, Richard and Tito Joel for serenading our guests. We all enjoyed listening to you. You totally mesmerized everyone. Thanks to Sheila, Joseph and Vier too we miss you guys.

Special shoutout to LA Mago our Banquet head, Ronald Perez, Jay Ilagan, JM Arandia, Cathy Albañez, Maricel Perez, and Aldwin Aguda together with  the other friendly staff and crew of Pontefino Hotel for giving us superb service and warm assistance.

The couple chose Nice Print to tell the story of their wedding day. They were the ones to whom Coreene and Nell have entrusted the most significant milestone in their lives as one. We handpicked the members of the team to cover; it was led by Hazel Santillan Naval, Jeff and Emerson together with nine others. The onsite photo was awesome and the shots were beautiful the onsite video was great and heartfelt! Thank you Bien, Flor and Rhecy for the assistance and correspondence too.

Thanks to Tito Emie Rojas, from GEMBSO who drove the bridal car, to Ate Mathy for making sure that no one will be hungry. Thanks for the lunch you have prepared for the entire Team CoreeNell.

The Big Sister On Being Emotional

bigsister
you and me – sisters forever!

One week to go. Time flies so fast, I mean really fast! Wedding preps done! Just have to do the printing of docs. I am having whirlwind of emotions and I can’t even start writing my speech. Though speaking in front of many people is something that I have been doing for so many years as a host. I still can’t get enough of the tension that I am having right now. Why is it so hard to write something for someone really special to you? I can’t organize my thoughts, I just have to do it short but heartfelt. How can I sum up almost 30 years in just 1 or 2 paragraphs or a max of 3? What is dragging me, is the thought of me delivering my speech without even crying. Being “mababaw ang luha, baka di lang hanky ang kailangan ko.” I would probably need a glass of water and a box of Kleenex. I have to put that on my note to self! I have to brace my self that I can do it with grace without my make up being ruined.

Oh Majella, OO, ikaw nga! Umayos ka! Kaya mo yan!

Having just a glimpse of their big day essentials made me teary-eyed; can you imagine how it would be like on the actual day itself?

From the very start I know everything would turn out to be great. Every detail is exceptionally taken care of by some of the best partners I know. Having special people around you would make every single moment memorable. All the brilliant ideas that we were able pull and give life; the superb dedication and commitment that we put in this wedding and the outstanding performances that everyone will do are just few reasons for me to say that it is going to be awesome!

I’m excited. I’m nervous. I’m thrilled. But above all feelings that I have, I am happy and I am honored. This wedding is my baby and the couple who will be tying the knot will definitely be my favourite! Just as they claimed it.

To my other Gembso Couples don’t be jealous. They are just too special to me, we are a family.

Did you know what GEMBSO means?
G – GREAT
E – Exceptional
M – Memorable
B – Brilliant
S – Superb
O – Outstanding

We used adjectives not on the SUPERLATIVE degree. Because we at GEMBSO believe that if you make your wedding the greatest event of your life; the most exceptional occasion; the most memorable day; if you thought of all the super brilliant ideas for your big day; if you put the most superb effort in every detail; and if you give your most outstanding performance then any other momentous event that would happen after it like having a baby, a bigger family, celebrating silver and golden anniversaries and the list goes on will just be considered as a regular event in your life. Weddings must be special, unique, very you. It has to be fun, unforgettable and truly a wonderful one. But after your wedding you still have to continue to appreciate, create, celebrate and look forward to a better, happier, and more memorable milestones as a couple and as a family. GEMBSO can help you plan it and make your dream wedding comes true and enjoy any other occasion that comes after it.

#REJOY on Maj & GEMBSO

I certainly believed Picasso when he said, everything you can imagine is real. Just like the way our wedding has been planned; it was both SURREAL and MAGNIFICENT. #REJOY

When you trust the people you chose to be part of your special day, they will exert more effort to make you happier.

I remembered two years ago, it was December of 2012 (as in last-day-of-the-year) when hubby and I called for a meeting with one of the finest wedding planners in this galaxy – MAJ, Majelle Magpantay.

We met at Hot and Cold Cafe at 11 in the morning and we were completely mesmerized on how Maj really carried the name of Gembso Events and Beyond – her being so full of superb ideas brought to life a wedding that seemed to be surreal – making her one of the most sought- after events planner of all times.

What also made the wedding special is the fact that our personalities clicked like a match made in heaven – add that to the fact that our biological families are attcahed in a way we could’ve not imagined possible.

Then there came the ginormous preparations and paperworks ( well, just so we know, Maj is really one hell of a strict coordinator when it comes to deadlines – which I am always missing, teehee ; and just as every Gembso Bride experienced it to be Maj would then release her Amazona powers so that you’ll make it on time hahaha iloveyou sis ). But that one rare characteristic of hers is what really set her apart from the rest – because of that OUR DREAM EVENT is as splendid as we hoped it to become.

Aside from the fact that the TEAM is really the best – We are very thankful for the lasting gift and bond of friendship that it created. Being with them on a side trip is surely a mind blowing experience – no dull moments- just full of laughter and tears of joy that came from laughing our hearts out. We didnt even realize that its almost midnight or the next day and we do need to go home. We couldnt forget the most sumptuous Caldereta at Gembso’s Kitchen! 🙂 we would normally raid Maj’s house and then stay there till night to eat ( even if there’s no meeting while chatting with “boss” ).

And on our wedding day of course, Maj and the team has been very professional in handling every detail of the wedding – from the littlest things to the great ones. Thank you to Ate Rose who has been my angel for the entire ceremony ; Ate Rizah for perfectly crafting our save the dates, menu card; place cards and many more. I am thankful that all of us are really very OC with all the details 🙂 Maj thank you for crafting and conceptualizing my perfect wedding cake! You are really a genius! 🙂 thank you also for finding that invitation maker that certainly suited our personalities 🙂

Surely, we missed all the chatting, group dates, coffee, shoe shopping, food search and many more.

There are many more things to be thankful for and I am afraid that the pages wouldn’t fit – so from the bottom of our hearts – OUR HEARTFELT GRATITUDE to the GEMBSO team for planning the most important event in our lives.

For all those who are planning on a celebration or event – hesitate no more! Choose Maj and the GEMBSO team – you’ll never go wrong!

Rudy & Yolly Echavia’s 50-Year Journey to Forver

Rudy and Yolly proved that even if they had a short courtship, one of the secrets to a lasting marriage is to continue loving each other, making sure that you put your partner’s happiness first.

Rudy & Yolly Echavia

There are only a few people in the world who are lucky enough to find their one true love. Not everyone can spend the rest of their lives with the person they chose to marry.

Finding “the one” makes you want to rush to forever – to not waste even a single second, away from your soulmate.Finding “the one” opens the doors to God’s abundant blessings. Starting a family, having wonderful children and grandchildren are the best blessings anyone could ever ask for.

Fifty blissful years – that’s how long God has kept Rudy and Yolly’s marriage in the cradle of His loving arms. God made sure that He will continue to bless this wonderful couple with so much and more. Rudy and Yolly have shown that, despite numerous trials and shortcomings, God has been in the center of their family life, never fleeting, always lighting their way.

We as witnesses to their love story can say that True Love cannot just be measured by how long you’ve known each other.

Rudy and Yolly met in December 1963, became friends, lovers and tied the knot on May 21, 1964. Just like the song “What Matters Most” Rudy and Yolly proved that even if they had a short courtship, one of the secrets to a lasting marriage is to continue loving each other, making sure that you put your partner’s happiness first.

Love cannot be measured by time. Love can be measured in a way only the heart knows how.
