"In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." - Khalil Gibran 

We first met Bride Maita during this lovely green wedding at The Mango Farm. She was one of the entourage members, and we remember her best for her effortless elegance & her beautiful singing voice. We were surprised to hear from her soon after when she inquired for her own wedding and looking at these images from Pat Dy and after watching the SDE by Bob Nicolas, it didn't come as a surprise anymore that everything would turn out the way she was like: beautiful and elegantly effortless. 

We are very happy to be working again with a dear friend, Patricia Pastelero of Spruce Floral Designs, who was in charge of all the pretty things you're seeing at the dinner reception. Spruce was the perfect partner for this event, and their work never fail to amaze & delight. 

More than all the pretty details (the gown by Veluz, that heart-stopping hand-painted invitation suite by Bonnie Paperie), what we really loved was their messages & vows to each other. Truly, laughter is a gift. It's something that nourishes both heart and soul, and it's wonderful to see Miguel & Maita share so much of it in their daily lives. Come to think of it, when was the last time you actually laughed? The kind that hurts your belly and brings tears to your eyes? Laughter truly rings louder when you are with persons you care & love the most. 

Miguel and Maita, may you never lose sight of the reasons why you both came together. Walt Disney himself said it best,"Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever."

Some of the nicest surprises come from Boracay. Who would've thought that this wedding will end up on our favourite list, and for good reason: everything was just so beautifully shot. Mangored & Bob Nicolas' coverage of Nick & Sheeva's wedding was nothing short of spectacular! The colors, the scenery, the warm moments give nuance to what otherwise could have been just another beach wedding. More than anything, we consider this event one of the best examples of celebrating one's love, with Nick & Sheeva's personalities really shining through. Here, the details are just that: playing supporting roles and highlighting their love story and not the other way around - something we could all learn from in this age of too much emphasis on the small things. *winks*     

Nick & Sheeva, may you love more than there are stars in the heavens, and fish in the sea. Thank you for making us a part of your special day! ^_^
