Modern Filipiniana:: Heather + Billy

Heather and Billy's wedding is loveliness all over. The simplicity is just beautifully curated... from the classic invitations, the tambourine necklace Heather has, the candle lined tables with just local foliage and pink bougainvillea flowers, the gourmet ilocano menu prepared by Chef Nic Rodriguez of Bistro Candon, her bouquet of artlessly bundled eryngiums, pin cushions, roses, phalaenopsis, eustomas, berries and kale. Nothing but loveliness. Always.

Venue:: Sitio Remedios, Currimao, Ilocos Norte

Caterer:: Chef Nic Rodriguez of Bistro Candon / Rufino's

Cake and Event Styling:: Ava's Cakes and Events

Let your LOVE pour :: Cathy + Jhon

We've had a rainy weekend and it reminds me of Cathy and Jhon's loveliness which we did before we left for Hawaii. For their sweethearts lounge, we had strings of pearls and a floral cloud out of beautiful hydrangeas, roses, carnations and lisianthuses. The photos are going to tell the story of Cathy and Jhon's while I'll go off tangent. The gloomy weather is keeping me sentimental.
I have a love X hate relationship with the rain. I love how nice it is to cuddle while it rains yet I hate it when it won't allow us to be outdoors. My heart cries a little when the boys can't play tennis. I love how the garden looks greener and the plants have these tiny kisses of water droplets. Yet I hate it when it soaks the grass too much that it forms puddles. I love how soothing the sound of raindrops yet it scares it when it comes with the sound of thunder and lightning.

Venice Beach Vibe:: Sage's 2nd

In this side of the universe, the Custodio's - Joyce and Maco would come up with the coolest party themes for their children- Caspian and Sage. Can you imagine us bringing in a real Volkswagon Beetle as stage props for Caspian's 1st which you can see here at Arabella's garden? We had to have 10 people carry it across the fence! This time to celebrate Sage's birthday, they opted to have a Venice Beach Vibe. Why it made me miss LA more.
