Rustic Romance :: Monica + Mac

On our first meeting with Mac and Monica, our beautiful bride comes very prepared - she fishes out and flips open her folder/ scrapbook for this loveliness. Why, I love prepared brides! It eliminates our need to guess what they would want. At some point, I was curious about her tad of OCness to which I learned that she is actually an Interior Designer. She was on point on what she wanted, and that left us a little bit more on our toes to be on point in executing this loveliness.
We played with her rustic pegs by having oversized lanterns at Sitio Remedios' chapel's steps, we had bricks and aged wood amidst beautiful florals for their tablescapes. Nothing but loveliness. Always.

Venue:: Sitio Remedios, Currimao, Ilocos Norte

Under Starry Skies:: Ariane's Bridal Shower

I've always loved intimate gatherings to celebrate beautiful beginnings. Ariane Franco's bridal shower, thrown by her sister Athena, was very lovely under the starry skies in this side of the universe. We built a gazebo where we dropped our geometric lanterns. The tablescape had tulips, kales, succulents, hydrangeas in gold servers. Java Hotel's green lawn and beautifully landscaped gardens was perfect for the set-up.

Baby Shower In Éclat :: Gaia Young

I've always thought that waiting should always be done with happy anticipation, and should there be a celebration... in éclat. Gaia Young's baby shower is too beautiful in its simplicity and flair. The color palette of mint, gold, white, and peach came perfectly with The White House Kitchen Lab's lovely interiors. We had delicious smelling white peonies and huge peach garden roses in gold rimmed vases, accented by gold baby blocks as centerpieces. For the pastries area , we had folding louvers with mint, pearl, and peach soft garlands. A few of my cake stands that displayed gold speckled cake pops, delicious cookies, and a stylish cake had to make an appearance as well.
