REAL WEDDING: MARK + ANJ
This wedding has got to be one of the prettiest we've done in recent memory! It's very simple & laid-back yet the subtle details brought to fore the personalites of the couple and their families. We've worked with the couple, Mark & Anj, for some time and they're the kind who are really honest and know what they want and we were just there to help them make their ideas come true. I loved it that bride Anj D-I-Yed the wrap of the invites!
Some of my favorite things were working with trusted partners: Jaja Samaniego, one of Manila's best female photographers, and K. by Cunanan, Manila's most sought-after caterer. I super loved the Cheese & Cold Cuts buffet during Cocktail Hour! What a yummy idea! :-)
Their e-session at UP Diliman was such a blast, too, and boy were we glad we "forced" them to do it, ha ha! Hope they've forgiven us already! :-)
Mark & Anj, we will miss our long chats at the Farm! We wish both of you all the happiness in the world, and as the Bard puts it in his play, Merry Wives of Windsor,"Heaven give you many, many merry days!"
A super non-traditional wedding dress! We all loved it!
Bride Anj with her equally beautiful sister.
Although we've done this setup many times before, it's rarely captured as beautifuly as this. Thanks to Jaja's feminine view of things, this classic setup definitely channels the SoCal look that we love so much: it's pretty, laid-back simple, feminine, fresh, and stylish!
Bride Anj held a very simple arrangement of pink Hyacinths, accented with pink Wax Flowers and surrounded by equally aromatic Eucalyptus leaves. On the handle, a band of lace appliqué & our signature brooch completed the look.
See this set again here. We love you, Jaja!
