We admit to having shed a tear or two over the Groom Neil's vows. Seriously, how many Grooms can be as articulate of their feelings? Ah, the things love can do to, and make people do. ^_^

When Bride & Breakfast founder, Janna Simpao, wrote us over the weekend that she'd like to feature our bouquets on her famous wedding inspiration blog, we were beside ourselves with excitement! Everyone knows that only the most elegant & unique weddings land a spot on the B&B blog and boy, were we awed by this one-post feature!~ Thank you very very much, Bride & Breakfast! Here's to more readership & followers!

This was really quick! Thanks for sharing this with us, Marvi of Cinemaworks! We normally don't get to meet our out-of-town couples but I accidentally met Arnold and Kate during the recent Thanksgiving Dinner of K. by Cunanan Catering. They recognized us immediately and approached us while we were table-hopping, saying hi to our former couples. So even if we weren't there during their wedding two days after our chance meeting, we're still very happy to see that everything turned out really well!

Congratulations & Best Wishes, Arnold & Kate! May the good Lord bless you and watch over your household for always! ^_^

How awesome is this concept?! Upon the request of Weddings@Work founders, Abet & Benz Rana, photographer Benjie Tiongco set out to do the previously impossible: to cover a wedding from start to finish - literally.

A normal afternoon wedding coverage has a call time of around 10-11AM, but Benjie was already shooting at 11,30PM - the day before! We even recall Benjie texting us at around 2AM asking permission to shoot us while working, but we were already Dreamland-bound by then since we finished our arrangements by midnight. By 8,30AM, we were already waiting for him to arrive at Sofitel to cover our arrival since we got there first. After shooting our segment, we bade him goodbye and good luck and the rest is history. We have to give it to Benjie for his great curiosity & passion: something that young people still surprisingly possess in this day and age.

As we wrote on our Facebook page, we hope that this set help bring more appreciation for the things we do for our couples. Yes, we do get paid for it, but we work with our minds & hearts 100% focused on bringing you our best. Enjoy the coverage here. ^_^

Yay, that was quick (they just got married last December!) but as bride Rashi wrote on her Facebook Wall, it's a sign that all the hard work has paid off. We can only agree with her. There may not have been tons of details (of the overwhelming kind, that is), but there are enough details that pretty much complemented their concept. We love it that this wedding looked so tied-up together, so well-thought of. So, well, cheers to more awesome weddings on Bridetastic!

You can read the blog entry here.


While being an online company has its perks, we've always dreamt of having our own shop where we can be more tactile and social: nothing beats having face-to-face meetings with couples and enjoying after-work drinks with friends who, as we discovered, will always drop by whether one likes it or not (but it does sound so much fun!).

Of course we'd love to have a dog lying around (for that adorable factor!) and a coffee maker where guests can help themselves to an assortment of beans (gosh, does that mean we need pastries, too?!). We want it all cozy and with a touch of lifestyle + home so there'd be other reasons for dropping by apart from flowers and meetings.

*sigh* We'll get there soon.

We've been in the wedding industry since 2005 and just when we think we already know everything about the world we move around in, our couples surprise us with great finds. One of them has got to be Stephen Prado. We totally love this SDE that he made for our couple, Meng & Ayka, who just had their wedding at our home base, The Mango Farm.

There's everything that we're looking for in a videographer: video clarity, cinematography, attention to details, & some element of surprise. If the videographer is gifted at storytelling, we consider that a bonus but Stephen Prado doesn't disappoint (you have to watch this video to understand why!). We look forward to working with him again in the future. For now, enjoy this SDE! ^_^

While crawling the web for links to our website, boy, were we surprised to see that our Green-Black-White tablescape (shot originally for Wedding Essentials magazine last year by Aldwin Aspillera at the Dusit Thani Manila) was featured last December 2011 on the blog of brand stylist, Erika Brechtel! You can see the page here. She writes,"I would die for one of my dinner settings to ever look remotely like the one in that first shot!"

Ha ha! This totally made my day. ^_^

Here's an awesome awesome SDE that pretty much captured the fun and flavour of our very first wedding in Palawan last January. Enjoy! ^_^

The moment I saw on the bride's filled-up form that Metrophoto is shooting, I knew that this wedding was going to be of epic proportions. And even if we don't have the privilege of actually meeting any of our couples who get married in Boracay, we can only thank the one, the only Amanda Tirol of Boracay Weddings for entrusting this one to us.

Special thanks to Oly Ruiz for allowing us to share these photos. We hope you enjoy this set as much as we did. ^_^

Loving the laser-cut details of the entourage dresses! ^_^

For the entourage bouquets, we made loose arrangements of pink tulips, yellow Mokara orchids, calla lilies, Snapdragon, with grass accent. Very tropical! They were flown to the island a day prior.
