as dear friends, for entrusting their special day

event has been a source of inspiration and encouragement
to us to do better in our future events.
are so grateful for Loi and his team on their expert
orchestration of our wedding day. We consider ourselves
blessed to have had the privilege of working with
someone who translated our vision with such style,
grace and professionalism. Being that we live in the
United States, Loi and his team were able to pull
off the event in such a short amount of time. Every
detail exceeded our expectations and our guests were

Loi and team (special mention to Cristy!),
guests couldn't stop gushing over how beautiful the
event was and how they appreciated the organized manner
of execution. Thank you for all your hard work and
dedication you've shown to making our wedding happy
and fun (as you promised)! We've been terribly busy
and haven't had the chance to thank everyone yet.
you, thank you, thank you! Should you find yourself
in Singapore, look us up!
Please see below my testimonial of your services:
overseas couples the bane of wedding planning is usually
the logistics. Straight off the bat we decided to
hire a full-time coordinator to give us some breathing
room and to be able to enjoy the planning process.
Loi was the first supplier we booked and it was a
charmed experience since.
it to say that I am a very exacting client. That is
proven when on the wedding day Cristy (one of Loi's
angels) brought with her the file book for our wedding
which was more or less 4 inches thick! The average
would be 1-2 at most. Looking back on it now I realize
how patient they were in answering even my tiniest
queries. They know the ins and outs of the wedding
industry and you can rest assured that the logistics
are in good hands. I've asked them tons of advice
from lighting technicalities to what hair color I
should go for.
relationship with Loi and his angels were put to a
test of fire. Less than 6 months to the wedding the
hotel told us that someone had booked all the grand
ballrooms and our event was bumped off despite having
reserved a year before. To put it lightly Loi and
Cristy was caught between a rock and a hard place!
We flew home and met with the hotel executive with
Loi and Cristy firmly by our side. Hell hath no fury
than a Bride scorned is saying it lightly. Loi won
the day with diplomacy and we left for abroad with
a venue re-confirmed for our event.
was fun from progress meetings to the big day itself.
You can't help but be swept away with their enthusiasm
and positivity. Our wedding day was made more memorable
because they were with us guiding us, making us laugh
and generally being great fun. No stress, no hassle
and totally organized. By all accounts our wedding
was a great success due in part to the hard work and
professional commitment by Loi and his team.
our guests really appreciated how organized everything
was and this, in our opinion, added to their enjoyment
of the event and is icing on our happiness cake!
short Loi and his Angels are God's gift to brides
and grooms to be.
Pat and Lalee
Loi! And Aloha to the loveliest angels of the Loi
Villarama team (esp Ela and Christy)!
Eric and I would just like to say thank you very much
for sharing us your magical wands in making our wedding
as marvelous as it can be! Definitely, a bow to you
were countless ways on how your team showed professionalism
in dealing with all the wedding jitters like suppliers’
questions, bride-zilla queries (LOL!!!), and other
neck-breaking requests. We won’t forget how
you graciously answered each of these queries with
the softest tones of “po” and “opo”,
addressing our enormous questions head on! J
also managed efficiently the TIME and SPACE differences
especially with Eric being in New York. It’s
a 12-hour time difference there, but this didn’t
hinder you to remind us of our decisions and decisions
and decisions! J
Loi and Roy’s magical hands turned me into a
woman that day! The hair and make-up were the act
match to my personality! I could not ask for more
on how the whole look turned out: gown + hair + make-up!
Seeing the look in Eric’s face as he catch his
breath while looking at me in the church, made everything
so perfect! J Thank you!!! J
and I were truly grateful for all your help! Our wedding
was indeed a truly remarkable event! Bravo! Clap!
we wanted to thank you for the wonderful gift of friendship!
It is worth knowing that even after the event every
visit in your office is still as warm as the first
meeting. It’s one way of saying how blessed
we were that we ran into you guys.
look forward to more of these visits and hope to have
the same warmth just like how good old friends meet
over a cup of coffee after long years of not seeing
each other. J
to you guys, and as you put it Loi, POWER!!!!!!

we got married we saw Loi Villarama’s website
but we were hesistant to have a coordinator, because
there are a lot of things to consider, and thought
that we can manage to plan the big event if we live
out of country.
tried to do some errands and started on our own but
it was never easy. So we decided to have a coordinator
instead and ended up to have their services.
can still remember when I called in their office and
had an inquiry. Grace was the one who answered all
my questions. She was very accommodating and friendly.
The day we went to their office she wasn’t available
because she had to pick up her relatives at the airport.
But she assured us that somebody will take care of
us until we met Ella.
then, Ella became our primary contact and confidant,
from the day we met her she never failed to text and
call us even midnights to have follow ups. We were
very comfortable working with her even though we often
talk through chat and email. Kahit late na go pa din
to complete the requirements. It was just so sad that
on our wedding day she wasn’t able to see whatever
we planned because she gave birth. During her turnover
I met Cristy, she is easy to deal with at may pag
ka kalog. ?
ladies never get tired of me especially with all my
demands “kaartehan and kakulitan” ?. It’s
really hard planning when you are out of country.
But with their help everything fell into place without
any worries. From the start until the end they never
let us down not only as their clients but as friends
that will always be cherished.
is a very talented person. Everybody had fun with
his hosting kaya di na sulit ang photobooth because
they don’t want to miss every single part of
the programme, brilliant and very professional. He’s
one of a kind. Name it, whatever you like, just let
him know and he will give you all the ideas and suggestions.
Sa sobrang arte ko in choosing the church sya lng
pala ang sagot sa mga un.
are so grateful to have you guys and appreciate everything
you did to make our wedding as possible as we could
imagine. Stress free, relaxing and we got a lot of
compliments from our guests. We can’t thank
you enough for the superb job you have provided us.
We never regret having your services even though it’s
out of our budget hehehe It’s all worth it and
for a short period of time we got to get along we
will never forget all the memories (lalo na ung fishballs)
hehehe. Hope we can work with you guys again. Two
thumbs up for a wonderful and successful wedding.
The whole package from planning, make up and hosting
was very exceptional. Winner!!!
sa inyong lahat Loi and his angels!!!
Carlo and Jaen
my everdearest Loi, Ella, Jen, Marvin, Larry, Cristy
most couples would never forget their wedding for
obvious reasons, my husband and I will not only remember
everything that transpired on that day, but those
who made our wedding day memorable and the difficult
planning process a lot easier will forever be remembered.
And that is why 9 months from that fateful day of
September 8, 2007, I am lovingly writing this for
Loi Villarama and his angels :)
(as I so love calling him) was the coordinator of
two of my closest friends in Singapore, Candy and
Nona. I attended both weddings so I saw them in action.
Having seen their work the first time, I was already
sold and quickly had an informal meeting/booking the
very next day. The second wedding only became an affirmation
of the best decision we've made for our wedding.
started planning our wedding with Loi and Ella at
least 15 months prior. And by saying that they made
it as painless and stress-free as possible is a huge
understatement. Since we are an overseas couple, we
truly appreciate that we were never taken for granted
even if we are not in close proximity to make kulit
for follow ups. While I try to do some research online
for probable suppliers, Loi would give me very valuable
insights on those we shortlisted, and he would also
recommend suppliers that he has worked with before
without being pushy like other coordinators would
be. Loi was very accomodating in everything from approving
the mock up of the invites, to travelling all the
way to Novaliches for our cake, to booking our videographer
2 weeks before the wedding, to getting me a bottle
of wine to calm my nerves from the reception to the
hotel 2 hours before the wedding, and for arranging
to have our pictorial at Manila Peninsula's helipad
so we can have beautiful pictures and a much needed
smoke break! Beat that! But besides guiding us in
making crucial decisions or doing most of the leg
work for us, Loi and Ella has become my stress busters
and confidantes. I call them when I am on the verge
of snapping and they comfort me in a way only a dear
friend can do. And because of that level of treatment,
I did not turn into the dreaded "Bridezilla"
because I know we are in good hands.
it to say, the wedding was enjoyed not only by all
of our guests, but by us as well. We felt like guests
on our own wedding! I didn't feel any stress because
I know they will make it happen and I gave them the
free rein to handle it all for us. And we couldn't
thank them enough for introducing us to most of our
suppliers - Tita Gina Galang of Royal Flower Shoppe,
Ferdie of Megapixels, Dick of Sound Level, Tita Judy
Uson for our cake, Serene8 our band. Our dream team
came in full force and gave it their best. To this
day, we get comments like "Your wedding is one
of the most beautiful, if not THE MOST beautiful wedding
we have ever attended" or "Your coordinators
did an awesome job..very organized" or "Your
corrdinator's team are very polite and professional"
or "We were shocked to know that your coordinator
is also your emcee and can sing very well". All
of these are testament to the hardwork of Loi and
and I will cherish our wedding day with fond memories
of you guys. Thank you very very much for treating
us not only as clients but as friends as well. Our
wedding was a smashing success, something we may not
be able to achieve if not for your help. We hope to
see you soon when we fly back to Manila. Cheers (translation:
Inom tayo hehehe!)

Our warmest greetings to you guys from here in Italy!
Our sincere gratitude to you for making our wedding
memorable and successful! Despite of the short notice
and preparations as we are based here in Italy, you
were able to help us in all the aspects of the preparations
and made it easy for my wife to find the things that
she ever wanted for the most important day of our
lives. We were very glad that our family and friends
not only shared that day with us but most importantly,
they were able to experience the love that we have
for each other by making our reception a very romantic
one, without sacrificing the naughtiness and fun in
the program during the reception.
event would not have been memorable for us, our family
and friends if it weren't for you guys. We pray that
you continue to help every couple not just in the
Philippines but also in the world to achieve their
dream wedding. Once again our deepest thanks and more
power to you guys!

just wanted to say "Thank you" from the
bottom of our hearts. You and your wonderful staff,
Olive, Melgen, Gene, Anthony and Roy have made our
wedding a very special and memorable event that we
will never forget.
were some last minute changes and things that we had
forgotten but you and your staff managed to pull through
with a smile. Because of your efficiency and professionalism,
my family and the guests didn't even take notice of
any last minute changes.
you for taking care of me. You provided me confidence
amidst the anxiety that I was facing. You managed
to tell me to, "just smile and don't worry".
I was nervous while in the car and getting ready to
walk down the isle...but Olive was there to remind
me that it will be fine. Thanks to my "angels"
Ms. Olive and Ms. Gen.Watching the video, I saw how
you were both there by my side through out the whole
time. You both are wonderful people. Gene and Anthony
you both have been good angels to Jonathan as well.
can't imagine how the wedding would have turned out
had we not hired you as our wedding coordinator. We
have watched the video over and over again and we
are very happy. Our families were impressed with your
talents and ideas. You are 4 in 1, they said, a professional
wedding coordinator, an awesome make up artist, a
very good emcee and a singer too!! It was really a
good deal Loi...thanks a lot. My friends said I looked
like a princess....As a matter of fact, I did feel
like a princess that day =)....Roy my hair was really
elegant...or "bongaceuos" (as you called
were very happy and content with how the wedding turned
out...of course we give the glory to God and the ultimate
gratitude because in reality He was the one who made
all of it possible and we were praying if we should
get a coordinator or not and I was led to your website
Loi! Thank you for A JOB WELL DONE....AND FOR GOING
ABOVE AND BEYOND. Who knows...maybe if we decide to
renew our vows again on our silver anniversary....you
will definitely be our "WEDDING COORDINATOR"
God Bless and Hope to see you all again...someday....come
visit us =)

Loi, Ella and all the Angels,
been almost a year since the wedding, and believe
me I’m still not over it. If only there was
a way for me to relive the BIG day everyday, I will.
Time was definitely too short to fully enjoy one of
the best days of our lives with our family and friends.
Thank God Loi and his Angels were there to make sure
my husband and I did make most out of the short time
we have to enjoy the wedding and of course party with
our loved ones.
could honestly say it is one of the happiest days
of our lives and I think a lot of the guests did truly
have a great time, without Loi and his Angels, it
would have never been possible to have both.

Loi, Ella, Grace, Olive & Joseph,
guys and gals! Greetings from the Connecticut! We
hope that everyone of you are doing great! We would
like to thank everyone for helping us making our wedding
day a big hit! Sonia and I had been planning for that
memorable day for several months and we know how much
pressure it’s going to be on our part when it
finally comes. Luckily for us, Sonia found out about
your group at Metro’s Wedding magazine and combined
with Ella’s persistence, we decided to hire
all of you as our wedding day coordinators. Everyone
did beyond our expectations. You made our wedding
day hassle-free as you took care of everything. You
all acted very professionally, with all smiles and
At the reception, fronted by a very talented and conversational
host, none other than Mr. Loi Villarama, we received
a lot of wonderful comments from our guests. There
was never a dull moment they say. Do we need to mention
he’s (Loi) an excellent singer? Yes he is! Many
say it was one of the best wedding receptions they
have attended. Truly you all know what it takes to
have a successful wedding. We really appreciate all
the collective work you’ve done during our wedding.
Thank you so much! We wish you more power and success
to your group and we’ll surely remember you
in our future group gatherings.
Jhambol & Sonia Santos
was complicated for us to prepare the wedding in the
Philippines coz we’re both living in Singapore.
But when we got Loi us our wedding coordinator, things
became very easy & everything turned out the way
we liked it to be. Loi made all our ideas a reality,
from the invitation, theme, church, reception, etc.
We even tried testing Loi’s taste in choosing
items for our wedding. So, we asked him to choose
a cake design in our behalf but he must not inform
us & then we’ll choose when we come &
visit Manila. And believe us, he never failed to impress
& surprise us.
invitation was created personally by him & his
angels, namely, Ella, Olive, Grace, Meljen, Joseph
and Armel. The photography theme was consistently
executed from the invitation, to the backdrop and
table centerpieces which were made by Tita Joyce of
2171 Floral Creations. Even the wedding gown &
the suit w/c was designed by Edward Teng was really
gorgeous. Crowne Plaza Hotel, Sentimental Groove,
Emil Buencamino’s Photography, Exstatic...we
wouldn’t have known all of these good companies/
people without the help of Loi & his angels.
was also good hearing feedback/comments from our friends
after the wedding. The invitation was unique, the
church wedding was solemn, the choir was great, and
the reception was fabulous. The coordinators (Loi’s
angels) were very nice, polite and had a cheerful
smile, they said that they haven’t seen such
attitude in other weddings they attended before. Even
the host (Loi) was very professional in what he’s
doing. Everyone really had a great time. We enjoyed
our own wedding.
was a dream wedding that really came true and it all
happened because of you, Loi, a true wedding angel.
From the bottom of our hearts, we THANK YOU. Your
friendship will always be treasured. We look forward
in seeing you here!
bless you all,
& Candy Sutingco
(It has always been a challenging task
to execute a
wedding if your clients are thousands of miles away.
But it was made easy for me by Ryan and Candy because
of their prompt responses to my text messages and
emails. Likewise, they would readily give their decision
on different matters faster than i expected it. Their
"photography" theme was equally challenging
and fun to execute. We had as much fun as you did
guys. Thank you for entrusting your wedding to us.)
Greetings from the "Big Apple"!
you very much for making our 25th Wedding Anniversary
Celebration an event to remember.
are so glad we found you. You have guided us every
step of the way in making sure that all the details
in making this event a success were attended to. You
have a knack in making us feel comfortable when tension
gets on the way. Although we were a world away, you
made sure that you were always there to answer our
concerns, through e-mails (55 e-mails to be exact),
dozens of text messaging and telephone calls.
impressed us with your attention to details, your
honesty, patience and energy. To you and your staffs
- thank you for a job well done.

celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last June
25, 2004. They got married in New York
and deemed to celebrate their Silver Wedding Anniversary
here in the Philippines. Tito Manny is connected with
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York and Tita Lit is with
Northwest Airlines. Celebration of the Holy Eucharist
and Reception was held at the Rigodon Ballroom of
The Manila Penninsula Hotel. Their only son Edmund
and his beloved wife Liz celebrated their first wedding
anniversary on that same date.)
me tell you guys about Loi...he's a great emcee and
a very good singer. Our wedding reception went very
smooth because not only did he provide good entertainment
but also stabilized the whole program. We arrived
at our reception hall at least 45 minutes after all
the guests have been seated and Loi did his best to
entertain them and i must say, it worked out really
good. Nobody got bored while waiting for us and for
some that were starving, they forgot all about it.
Loi, along with his crew (Lari, Olive and Ella) are
our preparation, although MCing is only a small part
of the preps, they kept in touch with us and offered
us great deal of suggestions and inputs w/c are very
helpful to the success of our wedding. They really
love what they do and it reflects on the outcome of
and company, we cannot thank you guys enough for the
great job you guys provided. We regret that we weren't
able to invite you guys at least for a lunch before
we left to personally thank all of you. But rest assure
that you guys always get our recommendation to family
and friends for all the big events in their lives.
Again, thank you so much and keep up the great job!

(Lawrence and Mary Grace got married
last July 17, 2004 at Hiyas Convention in Malolos
Bulacan. Lawrence serves the US NAVY while Mary Grace
is a nurse in New Jersey. They decided to have their
wedding done here in the country to celebrate
this all important milestone with their relatives
and friends. I met Mary Grace only on the day of her
wedding but it seems we've know each other for a long
time. Lawrence arrived in Manila ahead of his beloved
Mary Grace and it was a pleasure working with him.
Due credit must also be given to Che Dela Rosa who
was at the forefront of the entire wedding preparation.)
striked me most about Loi's group is their endearing
sense of "ownership" of the event/s that
they tackle. Well, at least that was my experience
in the recent golden wedding anniversary of my parents
for which I engaged the group's services as host and
on-the-day event coordinators. Loi and his sweet angels
(Lari, Olive and Ella) has this way of making you
feel as if they're part of the family and is just
as every bit concerned about the details, program
flow and overall success of the occasion.
to your excellent hosting/singing and event coordination
guys! And thanks for providing a strong, solid "backbone"
to what turned out to be a smooth and wonderful, even
magical evening for many of us (most especially our
parents!). You're definitely on my speed dial for
our next big celebration/anniversary party...:).
Oh and let me not forget the perfect weather amidst
a strong rainy forecast for the day (it actually rained
earlier but it completely stopped during the entire
celebration)! Didn't you tell me you have a 100 %
batting record for great weather on every occasion
you handle because of prayer? Well then, I'm an ardent
believer - God must be on your side!:)
you for your contribution to the success of our wedding.
You went above and beyond the call of duty, and we
greatly appreciate it. It was a pleasure working with
you and every one of your staff, and we consider your
work to more gatherings in the future. GOOD JOB!!!!
Mere words are really inadequate, To thank you for
your effort, Gherald and I certainly appreciate what
you did, Now I'll say a big THANK YOU, to you.
(Gherald was in the US becuase of his
work during the preparation stage of their wedding.
I organized their wedding with the help of the internet.
Salve and i kept him updated on every details of the
event through the phone and thru email. It was fun
and challenging..and tidious as well. They got married
on December 18, 2003 at San Agustin Church and their
