This prenuptial photo shoot is sure to make you all giddy and kilig! After having been married for two years through a civil ceremony, Will and Kate Quizana decided that it was high time to celebrate their union through a church wedding. For their prenuptial photoshoot, they recreated the popular KDrama, Crash Landing On You. Millions around the world have swooned over the love story of South Korean socialite Yoon Se-Ri and North Korean army official Captain Ri Jeong Hyeok, and the couple wanted to relive the drama's most memorable scenes. The KDrama has a special place in both Will and Kate’s hearts as it’s the first KDrama they ever watched together. When the drama aired on Netflix, the Quinzanas followed the story and would watch it together every weekend. Will and Kate had everything set for their shoot--the venue, the photographer, the hair and makeup artist, and the photo pegs. However, the coronavirus pandemic caused them to rearrange some of their plans.
They were faced with a few challenges for their prenup photoshoot. Their original venue suddenly became unavailable, so they had to look for another venue that could accommodate their mood board and pegs. They had initially wanted to have hot air balloons in the background, but there were already restrictions on mass gatherings at the time. Luckily, they found the Mountain Lake Resort in Cavinti, Laguna.
The resort had spots that were similar to the locations in their pegs. It had a bonfire, pine trees, and a mountain view. It even had a small forest where Kate could climb a tree to recreate the scene when Yoon Se-ri and Captain Ri first met. To make their creative process easier, they partnered up with Armidia Photo to discuss their pegs and mood board. They had meetings over Zoom, and they discussed how to achieve their dream prenup photoshoot.
As you will see below, the photos perfectly capture the vibe of Crash Landing On You and make for a beautiful prenup photoshoot. Will and Kate recall laughing and gushing over how much they love one another during the entire shoot, and that is what kept them going despite their setbacks. This is the couple’s advice to those who are planning to have their prenup photoshoot during this time:
“We encourage couples to be hands-on. We understand that there are other matters about the wedding itself happening at the same time, so we learned how to be very organized and attentive to detail as well. A couple planning their shoot must also be faithful to what they really want to achieve in terms of quality. That includes a careful selection of suppliers, venues, and outfits to match their needs. Most importantly, always think of how this is going to be just a once in a lifetime experience. Why not give it your all?”
