SDE: { RAFFY & CES }

--
Our 2012 ended with quite a bang, and the wedding of Raffy & Ces has got to be one of the most memorable for the year. It's feels great seeing a wedding planned for almost 10 months come to fruition at a most awesome way possible, spent together with family and friends at The Mango Farm, our home base. Thank you, Raffy & Ces, for everything! We will definitely miss all our discussions, including the hemming & hawing (ha!), and the terrific results that came afterwards. All the best! ^_^

{ LETTER }

November 24, 2012 

Dearest Dylan, 

First of all, we would like to say THANK YOU. ^_^ Thank you for being one of the best suppliers we have had the privilege of working with. 

Thank you for being our friend and for being patient with me most especially. ^_^

You are blessed with so much creativity that I sometimes ask myself as to where you get so many amazing ideas. ^_^

Maraming salamat hindi lamang sa magagandang bulaklak, maraming salamat din sa mga usapan natin through Facebook.; for being so supportive and for everything else. 

You made our wedding 100X more beautiful. ^_^ May God continue to give you the joys of wonderful challenges in life. ^_^ Mahal ka namin!!!

Love , John & Carla

SDE: { ALLAN & JOED }

How does one begin describing Joed and Allan? It never occurred to us how super cool this couple was until we saw their details on the wedding day. Sure, we made them some of our most colorful bouquets to date, with matching kusudama inserts to boot, but nothing prepared us for the spiky Francis Libiran suit and Christian Louboutin shoes of  Groom Allan! Of course, for good measure, there's the lovely and more subtle Mi Sueño gown of Bride Joed - a most picturesque pairing of two opposite tastes in style!

Working with friends on this wedding gave it a more relaxed feel. The mere presence of photographer J Lucas Reyes & videographer Daniel Lei Studio sealed the fate of Joed & Allan's wedding: it's destined to be epic and beautiful and judging from this SDE, that's how it really turned out to be. And we can't be any more pleased with the outcome. Congratulations & Best Wishes, Allan & Joed! We're happy to be your friends long after the wedding has ended. ^_^

SDE: { JERUS & GAY }

It's always wonderful to know couples who actually share a lot of things in common. In this world where diversity is more accepted, we rarely see common interests celebrated. We always hear the phrase,"Opposites attract," but shouldn't those who actually enjoy doing the same things be more appropriate for each other? Just a thought. ^_^

SDE: { NEPTUNE & BONNIE }


















--
Watching this SDE brings back so many wonderful memories of Neptune & Bonnie. Our meetings at the Farm have always been more than meetings: apart from these being opportunities for them to iron out the kinks of their wedding planning, we also had the chance to laugh out loud (and how!) about the amusing things that normally accompany the planning process.

It's always heart breaking to see a wedding finally come through because of the attendant farewells and goodbyes, but at the same time, there's a feeling of pride knowing that you have been an integral member of the wedding team that made the couple's dreams come true.

That, in itself, is the reward. ^_^

SDE: { NOEL & RAE }

We honestly don't recall anymore how we became friends with Noel & Rae; we've worked so many times before that everything's a blur now. Suffice to say that they're two of the nicest and most professional wedding suppliers that we know, and we're just stoked to be doing their entourage flowers! Here's sharing their heartfelt & moving SDE by the Film Factory. ^_^

SDE: { RICHARD & NORRIS }

Richard and Norris are both based in Chicago and all our communication was via email. We featured their beautiful engagement session HERE by Redsheep.

Meanwhile, while we await the official wedding photos from Shutterfairy, let's enjoy their SDE by Jake Olasco. We're very happy to finally be working with his team in Boracay.  ^_^

SDE: { WES & SAM }



























--
This early morning garden wedding was captured so beautifully by one of the best up and coming videographers we know, Jake Olaso. We're loving the drama of the OBB, the rich coloring (which, funny enough, matched that of the photographer's, Ryan Ortega!), the right amount of sound bites and emotion, and how it ended on a smooth finish - much like a tall cup of caramel macchiato on a really lazy day. It couldn't have been any better for Wes & Sam, whose wedding details were just as adorable. Enjoy! ^_^

SNEAK PEEK: { LAID-BACK BLACK & WHITE }

We had the chance to style a 160-pax reception a few days back, and boy were we stoked to work on a black and white palette again after a very long time! The thing with this motif is that it allows for several interpretations - from elegant, to laid back, to quirky. Let's say we settle for the first and second, yes?

This set also serves as a nice example on how to populate a small table of 10 seats with a few but well-selected items to achieve an uncluttered yet full look. After all, attending a wedding not only means treating guests to a visual & gustatory experience, but also to allow for conversation among seatmates.

Here's sharing some beautiful detail shots by Ben Lim, who was shooting that day for Jaja Lifestyle Photography. Can't wait to see the rest of the set! ^_^

SDE: { GERARD & VANESSA }

A two-year preparation finally ended on this beautiful sunny day of December 20. You have to give it to Cinemaworks to capture Gerard & Vanessa's delightful day in such remarkable clarity, color, and story.

The Mango Farm provided the charming backdrop to this SoCal-inspired wedding, and all the details are beautifully highlighted in this touching film. Loving the track, too (This Is Not The End by Gungor)!

Enjoy! Will share the photos soon! ^_^

FEATURE: WE'RE ON STYLE ME PRETTY!

When we got this news, we died like a hundred times. Every wedding supplier around the world dreams of being featured in Style Me Pretty, the wedding blog of all wedding blogs. It's knowing that the set made the cut makes the feature all the more precious. We thank all the members of the creative team who worked on this set - we only provided the head wreath (described in the article as "the world's most beautiful head piece"!!! Eek!) but everyone else did their best in putting together a solid concept and pulled off an astonishingly chill look for this shoot (that despite the rains!).  Kudos to our friends: J Lucas Reyes, Aira Franco + Fritz Mortel, & Daniel Lei Studio!

Because of this feature, Vatel Manila & the rest of the team are honored to carry this SMP stamp on our websites - proof that if one sets her/his heart on pursuing one's passion, the result will always be world class. ^_^ You can check out the actual feature HERE.

SDE: { VINCE & JO }

The reason why we love referring Redsheep Cinema to our couples is because they never fail to impress with their non-traditional & cutting edge style of making wedding films. Every same-day edit (SDE) they make is worth looking forward to - and we've had several chances to work with them to back that claim up. ^_^ Their videos are both a visual & musical delight (their music choices are just wow, mind blowing!  )

Vince & Jo are such a wonderful pair. If only we served tea during couple visits at the Farm, it would have been the perfect excuse to stay longer and just chat up a storm. The first few days I got to meet Groom Vince, we felt that their wedding had to be covered by Redsheep and we weren't mistaken. Talk about gut feel. ^_^ Enjoy their SDE!

We are so in love with this SDE - so full of love & romance, and we just adore the coloring! (Yeah, we just had to be technical about it, LOL!)

We are just stoked to have worked with such a wonderful couple who allowed us to do things our way. We are also happy to finally work with Jason Magbanua's other team, For You Are Mine! I believe this is their first time at The Mango Farm, our home base. Can't wait to work with them again! ^_^ Enjoy the video!

REAL WEDDING: { STEPHEN & JENNIE-LIN }

We can't say it enough how happy we are that we became a part of this wedding. We've always been a fan of Stephen Prado, the rising star of wedding videography, and the fact that he & wife, Jennie-lin chose The Mango Farm to get married in is honor enough.

And we just love their color scheme! We have always loved the yellow-gray-black combination - it's classic but fun, fierce but classy. It definitely lends itself to varying looks and themes.

We are also stoked to be working for the first time with Randolf Evan Castro, yet another rising star whose future is just as sunny as his photographs. The good thing about working on this wedding is that we were able to do what do best: spread around some SoCal goodness! From the garden setup to the fluffy bouquets, everything was signature Vatel Manila. Because for suppliers as talented as those involved in this event, they deserve nothing less than the best.
