RAMOS - BUNAG (March 22, 2009)

Starting today, every entry in this blog will have a cover photo collage like this one, each picture a representation of the important elements in every wedding. No more long and winding coverages. :-p

In this collage, from L to R.
Top row: the wedding ceremony setup, the rings pillow, yellow fans for each guest, and mango-based desserts. Second row: Orange, yellow and pink roses in the bouquets, silver pearls detail of the overhead fabric swags, white chocolate fountain, yellow button mums centerpieces against Vatel Manila's matte gold damask tablecloth. Lowermost row: Striped matte gold fabric for the buffet tables courtesy of yours truly, a closer look at the ceremonial candles, rose and yellow button mums centerpiece by Hizon's, and the unity candle against our gold frame and yellow striped fabric background.
The ceremony area as seen from the Glass Pavilion balcony. We are blessed with a wonderful weather today, but the heat from 11AM to 3PM dealt a most terrible blow to the aisle flowers which we revived by constantly spraying them with water. Summer is really here!
For the floral balls, we used canary yellow Gerberas, green button mums, white roses and as accents, moluccella laevis (common name: Bells of Ireland).

For this setup, we have retired our trademark capiz curtains for this fabric backdrop which reflects the couple's primary color motif. We weren't able to get yellow damask and went for striped brocade instead. As accent, we made use of this gold mirror frame (we took out the mirror so it won't reflect the camera flashes). The mirror has been with me for 5 years and purchased it when I was still living in Las Piñas.

We are happy that this event has come to pass. There's been a long but un-stressful planning for this event (I think; if it were, we never felt it), and the couple has been one of the easiest to work with. We wish them all the best in their married life! :-p
I love this shot. Hizon's Catering loves this long-aisle setup and now I understand why: the picturesque backdrop of greens is just breathtaking! The picture windows really do serve their function. Also, for future Hizon's clients, please choose this backdrop instead of the wrought-iron gazebo they usually adorn with tivoli lights. This one's more classy, this being a remnant of the series of things designed for Hizon's by THE events stylist Henry Pascual.

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."
(1 Corinthians 13: 1-8)
