Members of the wedding industry, former and current clients clients, and fans recently trekked to Fully Booked High Street to toast the seven of the country’s most in-demand wedding suppliers and to celebrate the launch of the first ever Philippine wedding coffee table book.

Thunderbird Resorts, the global leisure property developer behind the famed resorts in Poro Point, La Union and Binangonan, Rizal, 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.

The Power 7 coffee table book showcases each supplier’s work and gives a glimpse of their personal lives: how they started, how they discovered their passion for their craft, and how they succeeded in this industry. It also shows the different wedding concepts that Power 7 created for the Thunderbird Resorts Poro Point and Rizal properties.

“When Thunderbird Resorts approached us for this project, we felt excited,” says Ernest Pascual. “This was an opportunity for us to showcase not just our work, but also the stories behind weddings and the immense hard work that goes into conceptualizing and creating a celebration that truly reflects the couple’s personality.”

“Coffee table books often feature works of art, and creating and planning a wedding is an art in itself,” says Jason Magbanua. “Weddings are now becoming personal expressions of the couple, and our job is to create masterpieces that our clients can be proud of.”
