DELA CRUZ - CARILLO (July 5, 2009)

Something terribly stupid happened to me today. While taking photos of the entourage flowers - click, click, click - I realized rather too late in the evening when I was about to upload the photos that the CF card wasn't in the bloody camera during the shoot. I almost died (yet again!). Anyhow, I pray that the couple will have pity on me and send me some of their wedding photos, ha ha ha! Anyhow, here are some shots of their very beautiful event, rain notwithstanding (behind the scenes, Ms. Lace of K by Cunanan Catering and I were tripping over each other in trying to finish stuff - there was no coordinator, too, so you already know what that means!) . Anyhow, we have to hand it to the groom for the amazing bridal duties he's done in the bride's absence. I really loved the details of the invitation and the menu selection.
For the entourage, we made lush arrangements of white Alstromeria, white rice flowers and canary yellow snapdragons. For the kids, we made baskets of white Alstromeria, rosette succulents and green berries. For the mothers, we made smaller bouquets of yellow Cymbidium orchids and snapdragons.
The caterer's setup today is sparse, but in keeping with the overall theme which was minimalist Japanese (sorry folks, there's no such thing as 'Zen' when it comes to setups).
For the bride, we created a loosely arranged bouquet of canary yellow tulips mixed with rice flowers and snapdragons. The traditional arrangement for tulips is to clump them together and surround them with Gypsophila and a Polipodium wrap. Not today, hah!
The couple never really wanted to do their wedding outdoors fearing the humidity so their ceremony was fused with the reception. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this setup. Anyhow, for the altar, the caterer used their waterfalls. For the carpet, coffee-bean sack was used. The groom provided the potted Horse Tail plants (which I bought after the event, he he!).
The "Awwwww..." moment.
I am loving how the caterer recreated cherry blossoms by using these vines which you can buy at the Laong Laan portion of Dangwa, and attached loose white Dendrobium orchids. I think you can also do with this Alstromeria which has bolder colors - pomelo, yellow, red and whites with hints of yellow. Anyhow, I think it was a wonderful setup.

During the course of the vows, I think the bride quoted Philippians 1:3,"I thank my God each time I think of you..." which is one of my favorite Biblical lines. May we all feel the same way when we think of our friends and loved ones. To the couple, all the best! :-)

These never fail to bring tears to the eyes. The first video doesn't have audio (why?!), but the images are enough. N.B. Prepare a box of Kleenex.

Anyhow, watch Lea sing TWO WORDS in another video here.
