So it's came to pass. What started as a pre-nup last April finally came to fruitition last November. Harold and Malou tied the knot under the best of weather conditions at the farm. We wish them the best in their new life in the US!

"Dylan, thank you so much. It was nice. People were impressed. You did a good job. Keep it up. Thanks again!" - Harold and Malou

Licianthus is the new rose. I hate dyed flowers. We do not use them at all, not if we can help it. Blue flowers are impossible to find, that's for sure. We waited an hour to be shown blue roses from Belgium but no, no. They just won't do. When I saw these, I fell in love with them almost immediately! November-December is their season and Manila is abundant with these flowers. This color is not as common as white, which makes them expensive. Well, what the heck! This was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to use them anyway.

All shades of blue!

The new canopy I designed. I had it sewn by my Aunt in Las Piñas. Since the rods were not ready yet, I had them tied to tree branches using a wire so it won't be seen in photos. Interestingly, the effect made it look like a suspended carpet!

The sketch comes alive. Not as much as I want it to look like but it was almost there.

Fantastic blue trumpets. Blue looks best under the sun, but it looks dull at night. Flowers seen here are Hydrangeas from Tagaytay, white roses and Anthurium. The glass droplets haven't been installed yet when this photo was taken.

Cocktail setup. Vatel Manila's very 1st cocktail setup. It was tiring but challenging because 1st, we've never done a cocktail setup before and 2nd, we were to work around Php 4,000.00 to feed a group of 125. Oh, well. Needless to say, we can't wait to do the next one!
The groom awaits the bride.
The bride is welcomed by her parents.

Teary eyed, both. There is nothing like seeing a couple finally coming together in matrimony. It sends a chill down your spine. It's like sharing in their happiness.

All's well that ends well.
