REAL WEDDING: JEFF + JEM (May 9, 2010)

The couple are busy bees; they work for a BPO and we only get to meet them in the mornings for quick discussions. Suffice to say that given their schedule, taking care of of their daughter and preparing for a wedding, their event went amazingly well, hot weather notwithstanding. You have to give it to them (and the groom's sister!) for taking time to carry on the herculean task of preparing for their special day. Special thanks to Ms. Charisse Santillan Tinio of Nice Print for providing us these wicked photos! :-)

Why did you choose Plum & Lime as your color scheme?
My favorite colors are actually blue and violet, but when i saw plum and lime in a magazine, I knew that was what I wanted.

Your favorite memory of the day?
For both of us, it was when we were walking down the aisle. Also, I especially liked my flowers and still cant get over it!

Why did you choose to have a circular seating arrangement for your garden wedding?
I felt that it was different and according to Jeff, it means (our love for each other) is endless!



When you were walking down the aisle, what went through your head? What did you feel?
I kept telling myself not to cry, but I (eventually) did! I was also worried about the guests because it was so hot (that day).

Tell us about finding your wedding dress.
I just saw it in a magazine. Unfortunately, it did not turn out to be the exact same dress (that I wanted it to be), but I think I carried it (rather) well!




What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning for your wedding?
(That there were) so many things to do, so little time! We didn't realize that there was so much planning to do! I thought I was already organized, kulang pa pala! (but it wasn't enough!)

Lessons for future brides?
Get things organized as much as you can, and yes, consider getting a coordinator, too, although I think our (event went well even without one), but (things) could be much better if you get even just an on-the-day coordinator.
