Mac, Chai, and their Beloved Furbaby, King


One of our Before I Do couples included their favorite pet dog in their pre-nup photoshoot, and we have to admit, it’s one the cutest things we’ve ever seen.

Before I Do couple Mac and Chai had their pre-nup shoot at Ten Cents to Heaven Leisure Camp (in Tanay, Rizal), accompanied not just by their photographers, stylists, HMUAs, and coordinators for the day, but also by their beloved Golden Retriever, “King”.

“My husband and I are both dog lovers as manifested in the number of dogs that we have right now,” confesses Chai, who is a furparent to and additional 5 Shih Tzus, a Chihuahua, and a Maltese.

Of all their dogs, King is their absolute favorite. “Although he is now four years old and enormous at that, he still makes it a point to make his presence felt by totally jumping on us and all around us when excited, and even sleeps beside us too.”

Mac and Chai originally planned to include King as part of their wedding entourage, marching alongside everyone else at the ceremony. However, the church has strict guidelines and does not allow pets during the event.

Instead, our couple decided to feature King prominently in their pre-nup photoshoot, as you can see in the photos provided by Mac and Chai. “King was trained to obey basic commands like ‘sit’ & ‘stay’ which came in handy, as the photographers was able to perfectly capture those memorable photos.” If you plan to have something out of the ordinary like our couple’s original plan to have King as part of the entourage, coordinate with your Officiating Priest or Minister if they will allow this.

Capably assisting our couple at their pre-nup photoshoot was the team of planners and coordinators at Key Connections Events Management. “After months of planning, we decided it’s already time to find a wedding coordinator that will help and guide all throughout the (rest of the) wedding planning process,” says Chai, who booked Key Connections at the April 2017 run of the Before I Do Wedding and Debut Fair.
