A Fairy Tale Wedding
Say Alonzo - Ryan Tordesillas Wedding
By Danielle Sebastian
02 July 2011
Once upon a time in a crowded
city, a princess met her match, they got married and they
lived happily ever after. Too fast? Well, that's how one can
sum up the wonderfully perfect love story of ex-Pinoy Big
Brother’s contestant Say Alonzo and non-showbiz Ryan
Tordesillas who got married last June at Our Lady of Lourdes
Parish in Tagaytay. Say Alonzo happily shared with Kasal.com
how they began their happily ever after as a princess in her
At First Sight
“I knew he's the one the day I met him,” said
Say Alonzo of her hubby. Say and Ryan met through a common
friend, John Lozano, who was a stylist for ABS-CBN. One date
at a time, the two got to know each other and Say discovered
that Ryan was a responsible, caring and very patient man.
After their first date, they had dinner out almost every day.
Even with Say's busy schedule with tapings, Ryan would wait
for her to finish so they can have dinner together.
One day, Ryan asked if he
could take care of her for forever. She said yes and a couple
of years later, he proposed marriage.
Preparing for their dream wedding, the Say and Ryan wedding
planning experience was close to a fairy tale. Through the
helpful care and concern of their wedding suppliers, early
preparations and a lot of luck going for them, their fairy
tale dream wedding became a reality.
Starting a year before their
wedding date, first on their list was to book a church and
a reception venue. They got the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish
and Ville Sommet in Tagaytay. Wedding coordinator, Kutchie
Zaldarriaga, helped them throughout their wedding preparations
but they were still pretty hands on with the wedding details.
And because they had a whole
year to prepare for their wedding, they had more than enough
time to meet and talk to their wedding suppliers. Another
thing going for them was that all the wedding suppliers they
chose were very accommodating so they were easily able to
explain how they wanted their wedding to be.
Say is very thankful to
all her wedding suppliers including two of Kasal.com clients
wedding photographer Nice Print Photography and wedding caterer
“Charisse Tinio [of
Nice Print Photography] is super maasikaso with us...she really
calls us to ask us what we want, she gives us suggestions.”
“I love how the whole
family of Josiah's Catering is always there during our meetings
with them, and especially the food tasting! The food is also
superb... From the cocktails, salads, main course, to the
dessert - we've never tasted food like that,” Say exclaimed.
Her advice for soon-to-wed
couples in dealing with wedding suppliers - “Be calm,
tell the suppliers what you want so you can have the wedding
of your dreams. Be open to suggestions also.”
Say admitted that she has always wanted to be a princess for
her wedding. This is why they came up with a modern romantic
wedding theme where Say can dress up as a fairy tale princess.
Her favorite color, Pink, was also chosen as their color motif.
Adding to their wedding
theme was the ambiance provided by their reception venue,
Ville Sommet. The glass house was perfect including the deck
and the breath-taking view of the lake and the landscape.
All the wedding preparations
provided for a fun and intimate wedding the couple so desired.
Guests' testimonials said that it was the best wedding they
have ever attended. From the bride's point of view, Say definitely
felt like a princess beside her prince charming who took care
of her and whom she will love with her whole heart. Their
happily ever after has just begun.
