In a pioneering effort to celebrate the wedding industry, Thunderbird Resorts 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.

These suppliers represent the growing breed of creative individuals that are lending their own form of artistry into the industry. They are wedding coordinator Ernest Pascual, photographers Dino Lara and Oly Ruiz, bridal couturier Veluz Puno-Reyes, florist and event stylist Teddy Manuel, wedding stylist and caterer Kaye Cunanan, and wedding videographer Jason Magbanua.

Aside from showcasing how each supplier works, the book also gives a glimpse of these suppliers' personal lives: how they started, how they discovered their passion for their craft, how they overcame their struggles, and how they sojourned and succeeded in this industry.

"We decided to feature 'The Power 7' because they are artists who work hard to bring to life the vision that their clients have for one of the biggest days of their lives," says Thunderbird Resorts country manager Fabio Moretti. "With these suppliers, weddings become personal expressions of the bride and groom's personality, love story, and journey as a couple. That in itself is extraordinary."

The suppliers collaborated and brought their artistry to the resort's properties in Poro Point, La Union and Binangonan, Rizal. The book contains anecdotes from each supplier on how they jointly conceptualized the themes and worked on creating a complete vision of a dream destination wedding befitting Thunderbird Resorts' mantra to "create extraordinary experiences".

Also sponsored by Themes & Motifs, the book will be launched at the Wedding Expo Philippines (19th Edition) on September 10, 2011 at the SMX Convention Center. It will be available at the Thunderbird Resorts booth.
