Cordillera - A wedding celebration in Cordillera recently captured the hearts of viewers worldwide, thanks to its breathtaking backdrop: the stunning Batad Rice Terraces in Ifugao. The video, posted on the Ihingyon TV Facebook page, has garnered over half a million views, 35,000 reactions, and almost 2,000 shares, making it a viral sensation.

The video's creator, who runs Ihingyon TV, expressed surprise at its popularity, stating, "When we uploaded the video, we never expected it to resonate with so many people." The wedding, a unique ceremony held amidst the rice fields of Batad, Banaue, Ifugao, marked a first for the area.

What sets this video apart are its stunning drone shots and cinematography. However, the journey to achieving such high-quality footage was not easy. The filmmaker initially faced challenges due to a lack of equipment, relying on borrowed DSLR cameras and his phone as a secondary camera.

Determined to pursue his passion for filmmaking, he used his first salary from Ihingyon TV to purchase a second-hand camera and drone. Despite the limited quality, he continued to save until he could afford an entry-level camera that produced acceptable videos.

For him, the key to success is contentment with what you have and appreciation for the blessings you receive. He believes that as long as you are content, God will provide for your needs. His dedication to his craft is evident in his recent viral video, a testament to his journey from humble beginnings to creating professional, stunning works of art.

This story reminds us that with passion, dedication, and perseverance, we can overcome any obstacle and achieve our dreams. So, let's stay focused, work hard, and never give up on our goals. Who knows? The next viral sensation could be just around the corner.
