A Wedding Planner's Big Day

Wedding planners make every soon-to-be married couples' big day hassle free and more memorable. But, ever wondered what will happen when a wedding planner organizes her own wedding? Wedding Planner Annecris says it's magical.


From a Dream to Reality

Just like any other couple, Annecris and Christian's love story began with a dream of finding someone whom they can call "forever." 

In a time where "forever" seems hard to find, Annecris and Christian were among the lucky ones to find the missing piece to their hearts. And it's through God's call that they knew that they were meant for each other.


Wedding Planner to Soon-To-Be Bride

Despite being a wedding planner by profession, Annecris admit that planning their own wedding was a big challenge. One major reason was the limited time to prepare. Wedding planners usually suggest couples to prepare before they tie the knot. But with Annecris and Christian's case, they prepared for their wedding for only two weeks!

It was a small wedding with 50 names on the guest list but they coordinated with 40 suppliers.

Challenging as it was, it was also exciting for Annecris to plan her own wedding together. She no longer acts as a weddingplanner but rather as the 'bride and groom' when it comes choosing suppliers and services providers together with her hubby.

Throughout the 2-week preparation, the couple was fully hands-on with every detail. But, what's more memorable during the preparation stage was Annecris' dedication to her job. She recall that even two days before their wedding she was still in a meeting with a client preparing for a wedding - the client's wedding, not her wedding.


The Magical Big Day

If asked to describe their wedding in one word, it would "magical" for Annecris. 

"It was was a magical wedding for us because we did not expect that everything will happen in every single detail," she recalled.

God and Goddeses motif with purely white and crystals color was the theme of Annecris and Christian's beach wedding. The ceremony was held at the shores of South Palms Resort in Panglao, that boasts the longest stretch of white sand in Bohol followed by the reception in Bohol Beach Club.
