In a pioneering effort to celebrate the wedding industry, Thunderbird Resorts worked with seven of the country’s most esteemed and in-demand wedding suppliers and showcased them in the book entitled Thunderbird Resorts presents: The Power 7 Wedding Suppliers.
These suppliers—who are nothing short of visionaries—represent the growing breed of creative individuals that are lending their own form of artistry into the industry. They are wedding coordinator Ernest Pascual, photographers Dino Lara and Oly Ruiz, bridal couturier Veluz Puno-Reyes, florist and event stylist Teddy Manuel, wedding stylist and caterer Kaye Cunanan, and wedding videographer Jason Magbanua.
Aside from showcasing how each supplier works, it also gives a glimpse of these suppliers’ personal lives: how they started, how they discovered their passion for their craft, how they overcame their struggles, and how they sojourned and succeeded in this industry.
“We decided to feature ‘The Power 7’ because they are artists who work hard to bring to life the vision that their clients have for one of the biggest days of their lives,” says Thunderbird Resorts country manager Fabio Moretti. “With these suppliers, weddings become personal expressions of the bride and groom’s personality, love story, and journey as a couple. That in itself is extraordinary.”
“Our resort is named after the mythical creature that is believed to cause excitement and change with the flapping of its wings,” adds Angel Sueiro, design and construction vice president. “In the same way, these suppliers are stirring the wind in their respective fields by blazing the trail and setting standards.”
The suppliers collaborated and brought their artistry to the resort’s properties in Poro Point, La Union and Binangonan, Rizal. The book contains anecdotes from each supplier on how they jointly conceptualized the themes and worked on creating a complete vision of a dream destination wedding befitting Thunderbird Resorts’ mantra to “create extraordinary experiences”.
Also sponsored by Themes & Motifs, the book will be launched at the Wedding Expo Philippines (19th Edition) on September 10, 2011 at the SMX Convention Center. It will be available at the Thunderbird Resorts booth.
