Every success is a product of hard work, determination, passion and luck. Carlo Yu-Abaquita’s success story exemplifies this fact. His journey as famous wedding stylist-coordinator and becoming Cebu’s Top 1 Event Supplier for 2016 started way back 2008.
Carlo is a registered nurse whose dream was to make it big in Canada. But fate has different plan for him. It started when he was working in Perpetual Succour Hospital as staff nurse. His colleague who went to Singapore asked him to organize her wedding plans. Carlo accepted the challenge and was surprised when he found himself enjoying what he was doing. He enjoyed searching for best designers, wedding suppliers, make-up artists and other wedding essentials.
Carlo’s mind was full of wedding concepts and led him to do part-time events handling while working as nurse in Oncology unit. Eventually, he left his nursing job and taught English to Japanese clients in an online ESL Center but remained active in events coordinating. When the demands of his “creative touch” soared, Carlo decided to build his own events company- Unique Wedding and Events.
That was 2011. At present, Unique Wedding and Events has planned and coordinated hundreds of themed weddings as well as other events. It lives up to its motto-
“Unique Wedding and Events will never promise a perfect event, because we guarantee!
We do not just execute, we deliver!”
Carlo believes that wedding day is every bride’s shining moment. He and his team make sure that #CarloBrideis the most captivating woman in the room to the delight of the groom and the select guests. Unique Wedding and Events makes the bride’s perfect wedding comes true from church to reception. Carlo turns every event unforgettable and fabulous regardless of available budget. His commitment and passion gives every #CarloBride guarantee that every detail of her wedding is perfectly coordinated. No hassle. No stress.
One of his unforgettable wedding preparations was turning a simple basketball court of Maasin Leyte to an elegant wedding reception area. Imagine the challenge he and his ever-dependable creative team faced. But this didn’t stop them from transforming the venue into a jaw-dropping reception hall to accommodate the couple’s guests! Indeed, there is nothing that can stop them from spinning ideas how to make every wedding unique as possible enhancing #CarloBride own concepts.
Looking back where he was 8 years ago, Carlo Yu-Abaquita realized that while still working as a nurse, he was dreaming of meeting Cary Santiago, the favorite designer of powerful women. He started reminiscing his struggle with a smile on his lips while saying-
“When I started this business, I did not know anyone relating to this industry since
I never had an experience of being an assistant coordinator. Had I known people in the industry, it could have been less stressful.”
For those who want to pursue their passion as wedding stylist and coordinators, this is what Carlo says-
“To all the young and talented wedding coordinators and stylist, if I may quote Ryan Huston, “do what you love and love what you do.”
