Wedding Essentials - - WE PARTNERS - BY CLIFTON JAMES F. SAWIT

Meanne and Juan­cho Fon­dev­illa know all about rais­ing a fam­ily. The cou­ple has to deal with ev­ery­day sit­u­a­tions with pa­tience, ma­tu­rity, and sen­si­tiv­ity. Fon­dev­il­las also own Sen­si­tiv­ity Lights and Sounds, one of the most sought af­ter lights and sound providers in the coun­try, cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from wed­dings and de­buts to cor­po­rate events. But their pros­per­ous busi­ness also had hum­ble be­gin­nings. “We started really small, like house par­ties, wed­dings in small restau­rants and club­houses.” Lit­tle more than a hobby they started over twenty years ago, Sen­si­tiv­ity Lights and Sounds has grown into a state-of-the-art op­er­a­tion, with ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise in light­ing, sound stag­ing, drap­ing, and fab­ri­ca­tion, con­struct­ing themed stages to fit any re­quire­ments clients may have. Metal and ice wed­dings, glass gar­den de­buts, beach events? Sen­si­tiv­ity Lights and Sounds has han­dled them all. So how do the Fon­dev­il­las bal­ance fam­ily life and busi­ness? Ac­tu­ally, be­ing fam­ily-ori­ented has helped them run their busi­ness, ac­cord­ing to Meanne. “Hav­ing a fam­ily makes you more re­spon­si­ble and ma­ture when you’re deal­ing with ev­ery­day sit­u­a­tions. Your pa­tience gets ex­er­cised very much. You al­ways aim to pro­vide your kids with a good qual­ity of life, and be an in­spi­ra­tion to them. In busi­ness, I ap­ply all these things when man­ag­ing our peo­ple. In de­ci­sion mak­ing, in deal­ing with clients who have di˛er­ent moods, needs, and wants.”with care, at­ten­tion, and sen­si­tiv­ity. Surely that’s why the busi­ness is named Sen­si­tiv­ity Lights and Sounds, right?
