When we got this news, we died like a hundred times. Every wedding supplier around the world dreams of being featured in Style Me Pretty, the wedding blog of all wedding blogs. It's knowing that the set made the cut makes the feature all the more precious. We thank all the members of the creative team who worked on this set - we only provided the head wreath (described in the article as "the world's most beautiful head piece"!!! Eek!) but everyone else did their best in putting together a solid concept and pulled off an astonishingly chill look for this shoot (that despite the rains!).  Kudos to our friends: J Lucas Reyes, Aira Franco + Fritz Mortel, & Daniel Lei Studio!

Because of this feature, Vatel Manila & the rest of the team are honored to carry this SMP stamp on our websites - proof that if one sets her/his heart on pursuing one's passion, the result will always be world class. ^_^ You can check out the actual feature HERE.

The reason why we love referring Redsheep Cinema to our couples is because they never fail to impress with their non-traditional & cutting edge style of making wedding films. Every same-day edit (SDE) they make is worth looking forward to - and we've had several chances to work with them to back that claim up. ^_^ Their videos are both a visual & musical delight (their music choices are just wow, mind blowing!  )

Vince & Jo are such a wonderful pair. If only we served tea during couple visits at the Farm, it would have been the perfect excuse to stay longer and just chat up a storm. The first few days I got to meet Groom Vince, we felt that their wedding had to be covered by Redsheep and we weren't mistaken. Talk about gut feel. ^_^ Enjoy their SDE!

We are so in love with this SDE - so full of love & romance, and we just adore the coloring! (Yeah, we just had to be technical about it, LOL!)

We are just stoked to have worked with such a wonderful couple who allowed us to do things our way. We are also happy to finally work with Jason Magbanua's other team, For You Are Mine! I believe this is their first time at The Mango Farm, our home base. Can't wait to work with them again! ^_^ Enjoy the video!

We can't say it enough how happy we are that we became a part of this wedding. We've always been a fan of Stephen Prado, the rising star of wedding videography, and the fact that he & wife, Jennie-lin chose The Mango Farm to get married in is honor enough.

And we just love their color scheme! We have always loved the yellow-gray-black combination - it's classic but fun, fierce but classy. It definitely lends itself to varying looks and themes.

We are also stoked to be working for the first time with Randolf Evan Castro, yet another rising star whose future is just as sunny as his photographs. The good thing about working on this wedding is that we were able to do what do best: spread around some SoCal goodness! From the garden setup to the fluffy bouquets, everything was signature Vatel Manila. Because for suppliers as talented as those involved in this event, they deserve nothing less than the best.
