“The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” - Coco Chanel 

To be honest, we thought we would never be able to work on this wedding. Back when Bride Dyan's inquiry came in, our craft division, {etc} Handmade Goodness, has never worked on a whole set of entourage items just yet. With a Travel / Chanel theme and a requirement that all items be rendered in tweed (made popular by Chanel's tweed jacket, first released in 1954), we hemmed and hawed for quite a considerable time. So much for inspiration (I think we really were just scared!). :-p 

Three things, however, inspired us more to pursue this project: Cebu x Rock Paper Scissors x Snoogie Mata. The opportunity to work with seasoned suppliers in one of our favorite places on earth (Cebu was home to us for four years!) made us hit the cram clock and photo finish all items. The entire team was involved (I was in charge of buying the tweed, which turned out to be a difficult and sometimes frustrating experience) and the ladies did the cutting & sewing. Items were sent to Cebu via LBC as soon as they were finished to make sure they all make it there even if they didn't arrive all at the same time. Forgot the details already, but I recall that the last items were sent a day prior! It was crazy, hectic, dramatic - still, it all was a wonderful memory and we're very happy to share these wonderful photos (and SDE) with you today.  

Looking back, this wedding may have been rich in details, no doubt about it, but it definitely was richer in kindness, care, and love. May these attributes guide, comfort, protect, and envelop you all the rest of your lives, Reylan & Dyan. All the best, and thank you so much for making us a part of your special day! ^_^
