First, an admission (don't laugh, okay?). When Cyrus and Katie first visited the Farm, we didn't know who Cyrus was. So there, ha ha! It was only after the gardener asked me if they were booking the Farm did I realize who he was. In fact, everyone at the Farm knew who he was. Everyone except us. Boy, that was embarrassing. I only have the TV - or the lack of one - to blame for this.

Anyhow, methinks it was a good start because we didn't need to be starstruck or anything of the sort and it helped loads that Cyrus and Katie (and Katie's Mom, who was there every step of the way) were down-to-earth kind, quiet but will speak when they need to, and were really nice and warm: traits that are hardly seen in this day and age, especially from those used to the limelight.

We thank our lucky stars that we were able to work for and with them, as well as with awesome friends in the wedding industry. This is definitely one wedding for the books (or the magazines, for that matter. *hint, hint*). :-)

Thank you so much, Cyrus & Katie, for making us a member of your awesome wedding team! May you enjoy the love that "...comforteth like sunshine after rain." (Shakespeare)!

Jesy Alto-Ocampo hard at work despite an accident a week prior. Way to go, Jesy!

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.

The photos were pretty, your words were beautiful. Loved the Romeo and Juliet touch at the end. Romance truly flows through your veins. May I re-blog? :-)
