More than being our first ever wedding in the lovely island of Bohol, what we truly loved about this 2012 wedding was the theme: Art Nouveau. Long before the Philippine wedding industry became obsessed with anything related to The Great Gatsby, Chris & Amanda already knew what they wanted and how they wanted it. The island itself lends its charm to the theme, and the couple's own home, the Peacock Garden, was already perfect for it. 

You have to give it to Ernest Pascual of Bespoke Manila for elegantly putting together Chris & Amanda's ideas. Everything was pretty & polished. Adding to the charm are the couple's cat (Chris' boutonniere was actually a metal cat), and the various wooden chairs gathered just for the ceremony. And who won't fall in love with the gowns by Veluz & Sassa Jimenez? ^_^   

For Amanda, we created a cascade of Peonies, Roses, Queen Anne's Lace, and a certain variety of Eucalyptus leaves that were flown in just for this wedding. The entourage flowers were mostly pastels using Hydrangeas, Roses, & Leucadendron to match the overall color scheme. We will never forget this wedding for so many reasons, and this has made Bohol closer & more special to our heart. Thank you so much, Chris & Amanda, for letting us share in your beautiful day. ^_^
