The Most Romantic Wedding I've Ever Witnessed

The Most Romantic Wedding I've Ever Witnessed

I just came back from El Nido, Palawan, where I was George Tapan's assistant for the El Nido Photography Festival in Miniloc Resort. On Saturday night, we visited Lagen island and decided to swim in the pool of the Lagen Resort while waiting for sunset. We were having some peanuts and beer with George and the lovely Dr. Vanessa at the bar, when we saw a couple dressed in wedding attire, walking along the swimming pool. We learned that they were on their way to their private wedding on the sandbar behind Lagen Island. It was just the two of them -- no photographers, no camera, no witnesses -- just the bride and groom. George made some calls and asked permission from the couple to shoot their wedding, and he became their official photographer. :)

It was the most romantic wedding I've ever witnessed, and I would like to share the experience with you...
