Sunny day, heart-warming colors, rustic charm, farm love. What else can one ask for? Here's our humble attempt at creating a shabby chic feel for Eric & Erika's reception at The Mango Farm. For me, it all began with the bridal bouquet; everything else followed.
While we await the official photos by Jeff & Lisa, we present our own sneak peek into this beautiful wedding. Photo descriptions are in our Facebook page. :-)
PREVIEW is an early peep at our events pending the availability of the official photos. All photos taken by yours truly.

Ms. Rhea, the bride, and I go back a long, long time. She first emailed us in December of 2009. The plan was for us to do the entourage flowers, church, and reception styling but we have restrictions as where we can work, so we were left with working on the entourage flowers instead. This wedding is the first that ever fell on our birthday and what made the day really stressful was that there was a bridal fair going on, too. What are the odds, right? But Rhea was one relaxed bride when we delivered at the hotel, and it was only then did we find out who the rest of the wedding suppliers were (which pretty much made our day!).
Rhea, we can't thank you enough for trusting us even if we were just making our mark then. You have been a witness to how we've outdone ourselves every time and you never wavered, and I quote,"I'm so happy about your success! You truly deserve it! Magaling ka talaga! I'm really really happy about getting you! It was my pleasure working with you! When I saw your work naman, 'di ako kinabahan to get you, eh! As in after seeing your site, I didn't look for others anymore. Sabi nga nila, when you know, you know!".
Looking at these beautiful photos by Nelwin Uy, we smile at the memory of our several email exchanges and the success of all the long-distance planning that you've done. :-)
We're also happy to note that this is the first project we've had with the one, the only Ernest Pascual of Events! Events! The mere mention of Ernest's name is enough to make anyone who does not live up to his standards shake, ha ha! We're very happy to have "survived" him and made the mark. :-)
For now, let's enjoy these photographs of Vince & Rhea's wedding. Cheers!
