When asked what does "Pogo" mean, Abhishake Chandel shared that "she ( Fritze Abarre ) was calling me pogi. So out of impulse, I called her Pogo, which is a cartoon channel in India. I know, it's weird. Haha!"
And in Abhishake and Fritze's wedding thanksgiving, we were moved with three life-changing realizations. Let me start with the last one that was not included in the Facebook post.
3. Acquaintances and newly-found friends with shared values and zest in life can feel like old friends. The team didn't expect to share so much hearty laughter during the shoot in Escala with Fritze and Abhishake. The couple was so easy and fun to work with and just clicked well with the team, who "nose-bled" and wished they brought "more English." Haha!
2. Some people can be more Pinoy in thoughts and actions. Described as "ang Indian na maka-Pilipino," Abhi seemed to already embrace Filipino culture and ways. To name a few, we saw how he: greeted the elders with "mano" when he paid respect to Fritze's older relatives, was being so "malambing" and "carinoso" to Fritze, and ride with "nose bleeding" joke when some folks would talk to him.
1. Sometimes, knowing the value of family and how to love unconditionally can be learned through other people, not necessarily your own. Abhi was a free-spirited individual until he met Fritze, and witnessed the "benchmark" of how to love and care for family through Fritze's love for her siblings.
And have a peek into their special day through these SDE video and photo slideshow.
Meet the team behind the scenes.
Our heartfelt thanks once again, Fritze and Abhishake, for having us.
And lastly, cheers to old and new friends for a job well done!
