Summer of Love from Joey B.

As promised, as penance for my looong blogging absence, we’re giving away some lovin’ this uber hot summer — and it’s thanks to no less than Mr. Vintage Joey Boquiren, who, believe it or not, was the one who bugged me about having another round of these unbelievably generous FREEBIES!

So what’s the deal?

1) If you want a FREE ENGAGEMENT or TRASH-THE-DRESS SESSION, send us a theme board of your concept/inspiration and tell us how you plan to execute it, i.e. venue, props, even dresses, etc. The contest is open to couples whose weddings fall between April 1 and Dec. 31, 2010. We will pick the most interesting boards (one for TTD and one for engagement), so get creative. It doesn’t have to be a whole elaborate and expensive production (in fact, I’d personally prefer one that’s practical, too). Here’s some inspiration from a pre-nup shoot in a Zapote perya.

2) If you prefer FREE BACK-UP WEDDING COVERAGE, like what Mark and Gina won last year, send us your best DIY wedding project, complete with photos and instructions. Make it short and sweet, please. Only weddings slated on April 30 to July 15, 2010 may be covered (because Joey B. will be in the U.S. this July with Rene Gaviola).

Okay, the floor is now open for nominations (first-time features will be given priority). E-mail your entries to with the couple’s complete names and wedding website (or if you don’t have one, please put your venue, wedding date and contact information).  If your theme board or DIY project is already on your website, you may simply send us the link and other details you want to share.

We close at midnight on April 15. Go, go, go!!!
