When the photographer posted the video of a bride kneeling on the ground and crying, netizens couldn’t help but feel bad for the newlyweds.

Jesson Argabio couldn’t help but post what happened on his personal Facebook page, sharing what happened, “Nagpakita pa ang coordinator sa preparation then nawala rag kalit nya until sa church di na ma-contak, then paghuman sa ceremony, deretso na sa reception then pag abot namo sa reception venue (Unta)-walay venue kay close (The coordinator even showed up at the church wedding, but we couldn’t contact him anymore when we got to the reception venue).”

According to the venue, nothing was booked for that day. “In short, no food, venue, no decor. To make the story short, the couple has been scam, but the couple fully paid the coordinator already. Al of us suppliers, makeup artist, photographer, and videographer weren’t paid. t’s a big scam!”

In an interview with Cebu’s 93.0 FM teleradyo, Jesson revealed the name of the coordinator whose name is Naser Fuentes. The couple, Cherry Pie and Ariel Purisima paid a down payment of P5,000 last June, following P15,000 and P30,000 in September, and P65,000 as the last instalment. They were presented with receipts which is why Cherry didn’t doubt the coordinator.
