We've been very lucky to already have worked on four weddings in this stunning set of islands in the Northern Philippines called Batanes, and every wedding just becomes more memorable every time!  

Bride Andrea inquired with us long before they decided to have two receptions, one in Batanes and another in Manila, and our past experience in shipping flowers has definitely helped in making arrangements easier this time around. 

Like other wedding preparations, there were hiccups along the way but those have only led to better things as these photos (and the accompanying SDE below) would show (hooray for imperfect weddings!). 

We would have loved to quote from an Ivatan poem to cap this post, but there are none to be found online as this art is more of an oral tradition in the islands, so let us end this instead with 'Dios mamajes' (Thank you!), 'Dios machivan' (God be with you!), and 'Mirupirwa tana!' (Til we meet again!)! ^_^
