Troves 2014 Year Ender


In TROVES, We do not remember days, we remember moments.
It is also our form of appreciation and gratitude to those who had trusted us with their life’s precious moments and milestones.
We would forever be truly honored to those who had given us the tribute of being their STORY tellers.
And as we fold the chapter that was 2014 in our treasure box of memories, our TROVES, we welcome 2015 with an open invitation to another year of excitement and adventure. Cheers!

Jean's Birthday Highlights


Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind;
it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees;
it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions;
it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
-Samuel Ullman-
For those who knew Jean, she will forever and always be Young.

Kevin has a plan. This is his Design.
1.The blossoms of my heart abound
2. Screaming from the rooftop around
3. Skipping and jumping a foot
4. All these things in my heart resound
5. No questions but only answers I hear
6. To how much I love you
7. At the end of the world would I go
8. To see your face in a mirror
9. Or to hold your hand once again
10. Give it to you, my all, that I have
11. Be it that you are more lovely
12. I could not stand it at all in my heart
13. As I have given you my all
14. know that I will always give it to thee
15. My heart races when you are beneath my wings
16. A warmth from your beating heart
17. Consumes my body with warmth and glow
18. A skip to the next heart beat
19. I shudder at the thought without you
20. Now as the roses of my loves affection are passed
21. Your beauty surpasses them all
22. Even your thorns are bristled with jasmine
23. My love for you will continue to grow and grow
24. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you.

A New Chapter: TROVES by LS Davao

Hello friends of Lights and Shadows-Davao

We are turning on a new page.
We've given a lot of thinking about this and we're happy to share it with you.
We're moving forward.
Let us share with you a little story.
The past six years had been nothing but wonderful for Lights and Shadows-Davao. We had great many memories to treasure and cherish.
We are Lights and Shadows-Davao and the privilege of the name is unselfishly shared with us.  And we are truly grateful for allowing us to carry the same name in what we do. We've been given consent for us to publicly use Lights and Shadows-Davao.
HOwever, at this point we feel that it is time reciprocate the generosity we were given. We are giving full credit to the rightful owner of the name Lights and Shadows as we turn a new chapter for Lights and Shadows-Davao.
Friends, we would like to introduce to you: TROVES by LS Davao. This is a departure from Lights and Shadows-Davao and a welcome to a new phase. Hey! Do not fret because we are still the same guys you've been with. We believe that we owed it to you; You, who have unconditionally entrusted your most important milestones to us, to continually re-invent ourselves and to become better in what we do. We wouldn't be who we are nor what we are if it weren't for the great experience spent with you and the confidence you gave us. THANK YOU. As we embark on this new trip, we are positive that you will also welcome with the same trust, confidence and love, with what we would be known as: TROVES by LS Davao.

We have prepared a short video for you,so that we may share with you our epiphany.

Their Family in full support of this new chapter in their lives.
Even Mother Nature has favored them well with beautiful sky scape and auspicious weather.
For Sherryl, this truly is a day fit for royalty, as she dressed in a Princess like gown,
the Dashing groom: Popong is looking spectacular as well in his well manicured suit.
Everybody is in their best, everybody in high spirits as they welcome the newlyweds to the blissful and colorful married life.
Cheers! Popong & Sherryl

Popong & Sherryl: Love Story [Prenup Video}

Sherryl had dreamed of One True Love, and Truly, Popong had embodied everything she had dreamed of: God fearing, responsible and with funny on the side.
For Popong, he knew the first time they met that she was The One, and like any true gentleman, he had proved himself worthy of her love.
As they said , the rest was history, and surely, this two beautiful couple will make a lot of more wonderful memories together.

Rommi's Celebration of 50

|| High Definition at ||

50 has never looked this Good.
Rommi's celebration of 50 is a night to remember. 
 Family & Friends who has helped shaped WHO and WHAT HE IS were all present.
Rommi has no regrets, no doubts and has followed a simple principle: 
As with the song's lyrics: "I did it all" and so did Rommi and rode life with all the pain and gain.
Today, he emerges as the hero to his children, best friend to his wife, a pillar to his siblings and everybody's funny, feel-good guy.

Noel & Gerri's Wedding

|| Watch in High Definition at ||

Today, is one of those moments
When life unfolds its greatest manifestations,
That True Love prevails and is unchanging,
That it can withstand the Test of Time and Tides.
Love is INDEED Sweeter the Second Time Around.
For Gerri and Noel, this much is true.
At one point in their lives, their ways have met but fate lead them to different paths.
It seems that indeed destiny has a great plan for them,
Because at a precise moment, they've re-entered each others lives
To continue the course of events, laid out for them.

Boy @ 60

Celebrating 60 years is a great milestone. 

Tito Boy's birthday celebration is something to remember because ALL of his friends and loved ones gathered without his knowledge to give him a SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY. 

It was a night of gratitude for Tito Boy's influence in the lives of the many people he touched and inspired. Truly, we count not the number of people we call friends, but the number of people who call us a FRIEND.

To Tito Boy, may he be blessed with more wonderful years.

Save The Date: Sherryl & Popong

Love is an Untamed Force
it Cannot be Controlled,
Do not Imprison it,
Deciphering is Futile.
Surrender to it,
Without Second Thoughts.
It's the Possibility of Having a Dream
Come True that makes Life
Worth Living.
The Universe Only Makes Sense
When we Have Someone to Love
-quotes from Paulo Coelho-

Vadim & Joy: Pre-Wedding Photos

 It was a sunny day, perfect for a get away. And this was exactly what Joy & Vadim did, escape in paradise. The fuss of the city lights and buzz has been a long forgotten thought. It was a day filled with basking in the sun and leisurely strolls in the beach. The two lovebirds has been playful in an appealing and amusing, almost in a childlike way; carefree and loving it. The day was indeed whimsical, almost dreamy afternoon, which had been superb in every way for Joy & Vadim.

Vad & Joy: The Wedding (Same Day Edit Video)

Vadim & Joy: An OnSite Wedding Video from Lights & Shadows Davao on Vimeo.

February 9th, 2014

There were ominous dark clouds gathering overhead, threatening to pour down any minute, but it seems that Joy and Vad were favored by the weather because the rain didn't happen, giving the wonderful couple a garden wedding overlooking the cityscape of Davao City a day to remember.
Close friends and family bore witness to the day's event. Vad's parents flew all the way from Russia to witness an only son's wedding day. Best friend of more than 20 years and the best man, came from Shanghai to cheer the beautiful couple.

May we never forget what is worth remembering.

Mike & Jomz: Pre-Wedding Photos

For Jomz & Mike, being separated by distance and time is no hindrance to their love at all. Despite these challenges, they remained closer to each other than ever before. To say that love endures is an understatement for Jomz & Mike, because they’ve more than proven this age old saying.
