Has it been 8 months already? How time flies. I remember Maricel's first email about her all-white wedding concept and how everyone was virtually against it. The thing is, I was in a shabby-chic mode for 2010 and I sort of egged her on (so it's partly my fault, yes). It didn't help that she was also considering K. by Cunanan Catering so convincing her that her idea was worth all the trouble became so much easier.

It took some time before I got back to actually finalizing the costing as I usually leave it alone for a while just in case I hit my head on a pole or something and come up with better ideas. The "better idea" hit me the night before the wedding and nothing could have been more appropriate, IMHO, than the arrangements we eventually came up with for this wedding. Now that's what we call truly inspired.

Ilie & Maricel, we've 'traveled' together from the very beginning. From the invite design to the menu choices to the SDE song: name it, we've discussed it, ha ha! And heck, I'm not even your planner! I will surely miss our chance meetings in malls & wherever. Methinks we should plan to visit Bangkal soon and do the flea market circuit there! :-)

For now, let's bring out that box of Kleenex and enjoy the SDE prepared by Daniel Lei Studios (yet again!).

is in tears while reading Vatel Manila's blog post. Dylan was the very first who bought my idea of an all-white wedding. Dahil sa iyo lumakas ang loob ko to pursue it. Yes, from invitations to menu choices at kung anu-ano pa and up to the last minute you surprised me with a bouquet na may lotus pods! Glad you did! I convey my utmost appreciation to you Dylan for supporting us from the very start, for sharing us your thoughts and ideas. God bless you and more power. Yes Dylan sumugod tayo sa Bangkal!
