Laid back love:: Mayeth + Rob

I'm already too behind from my list of weddings and parties I need to gush about. Forgive me darlings, the last quarter is making it too crazy already plus the fact that we, that is the mister and I, in between cakes and parties we have to style, are still very supportive to the little mister's school and after school activities. Our day job is easier than raising him but the joy we get doing that is incomparable.
For Mayeth and Rob's loveliness, we did a lush tablescape of fresh and lovely florals for the principal sponsors. I know we did well when the mother of the bride came near me, held my hand, hugged me, while exclaiming how lovely the flowers were and repetitively saying "beautiful, beautiful". My heart is full. When we started planning arrangements, Mayeth and I agreed to do it with subdued simplicity. Simple yet so classy. Simple yet so elegant. I couldn't agree more.

Tea time:: Dawn Summer's 1st

It's time for tea and cake!
For darling Dawn Summer's 1st birthday, we had balloons with doilies instead of tassels attached to its ribbons, elevated teapots and teacups with fresh roses, hydrangeas, and carnations, a tea house for backdrop, and deliciously lovely cakes and cupcakes.

Right place. Right time. :: Kae + Brian

That yellow umbrella at the right place at the right time. I'm smitten with Brian and Kae's How I Met Your Mother kind of wedding. We knew we needed that yellow umbrella, the blue trombone and a few pineapples - which until know I wonder why. Someone please enlighten, truth be told I don't watch HIMYM. I'm more of an OTWOL fan. Teehee! Zoning in, we did have those elements for Brian and Kae's.

Congratulations darling Kae and Brian!

Filipiniana:: April + Jeff

If there's a wedding look we love doing over and over again at the Sta. Monica Church in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte - that would be Filipiniana. It's so apt, with its bricks, log trusses, and capiz windows.


For April and Jeff's loveliness, we lined the church aisle with capiz lattices, cascading arrangements of white flowers, and candles in cylinders. The simplicity is breathtaking.

The entourage bouquets were lovely. April had a cascading bouquet of phalaenopsis, David Austin's, Ecuadorean's, Eryngium's, with the right greens. It looked like it was just combined, bundled... au naturelle. The flower girls arm candies had capiz balls adorned with succulents, cymbidiums and roses.
