Enchanted Love:: Sheryl + Rey

I just had to do this post for Sheryl and Rey's loveliness now because my heart could not keep still from how enchanting the Sierra Madre ballroom of Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel looks like.


We had gold foliage dropping from crystal ends. A fountain filled with roses and tulips. A gold gate with chandeliers.

Blush my love:: Gemma + Patrick

The blush, coral and pink pallette we had for Gemma and Patrick's loveliness is enough to to make anyone swoon. The softness of tiny white flowers with coral and pink roses, casablancas, blue hydrangeas and pink tulips made this wedding sweet and lovely.

Rustic Chic:: Monet + Erwin

Yet again, loveliness in simplicity. Still giddy over Monet and Erwin's rustic wedding at Playa Tropical. I'm blaming the red roses we used. Sigh! Keep still my heart.


For the couple's lounge, the mister constructed a wooden see-through lattice wall and had our chic coffee shop, stringed lanterns. Can I please say loveliness in simplicity again?

And the tablescapes for their entourage and principal sponsors are just drop dead, rustic gorgeous. I love how the jellybeans and jade succulents blended with the casablancas, gloriousa's and roses. Such loveliness! And how can I miss, the perfect alignment of silver and glassware by Chef Nic Rodriguez's Rufino's and Bistro Candon's catering? Just perfect for such loveliness!

Little Lady Lyana :: 7th Birthday

A 7th like no other! Lyana's mommy Ger has been working on this loveliness since the last time we've done Lyana's birthday cake about 3 years ago. Can you imagine how crazy it is on her and my end working on the plans for this. We almost had to let go because Lyana's party coincided with another project we had here. Mommy Ger was just too persistent and she won me over with a bottle of moscato and that lovely cake stand.

Lyana had three gown designers, Mel Orlina, Amor Albano and Rachel Apanapao.

Boho lovin':: Angelica + Jade

The morning we were to work on this loveliness, my cheesy self was singing Portrait of My Love in the bathroom. I was reminiscing how it was 10 years ago and how the heavens schedule projects for us. I guess the chances of us working on our anniversary will never be slim to none.

So our June calendar started with Angelica and Jade's boho wedding. As we were completing the  elements we needed to make it spot on, I realised how it differs back then. How times have changed. The mister and I wanted a turquoise motif, Jade and Angelica wanted coral, gold, blush with Boho vibes. We say motif, they say theme. I can always blame it on my location but photography and videography was just that, plain and simple. Now there are SDE's, flying cameras and all those that capture loveliness you shall go over and over and over in the days to come. It's a lovely crazy mess doing weddings these days. Enough how incoherent I am, in my book, whatever the color or theme we have to work on... Bottom line, we must deliver loveliness. So for our boho lovin' couple, we had feathers, dream catchers, laces, frilly foliages, lanterns over wooden boards, succulents and lovely lovely florals.
