Marie's wedding is definitely one of the most beautiful weddings I've been to. My jaw dropped when I saw the venue for the wedding reception that I had to text my husband, that if we were to get married again, we will have to do it here, that perfect spot, that perfect way.
The reception venue is straight out of a Rogelio dela Rosa - Carmen Rosales film in black and white. Imagine a huge tree as the centerpiece, with branches forming a protective canopy over the dining area. Tables were candle-lit, arranged around it on a wooden deck for the sit-down dinner. A string band provided the soft music that meld perfectly with ocean's gentle waves. Red and white wine were served while guests lingered with smoked fish turon and spanish tapa. And like an afterthought, is that familiar provincial scent that completed the experience.
It was so beautiful.
It was surreal.
The simplicity, quaintness and romance of the entire event just stunned me. And Marie planned everyting :-) I felt so proud of her, of being there and having her as my bride.
here she is on her wedding day -
funny note - Marie got married to Javier who is Spanish, as expected, there were gorgeous Spanish guys around :-) Part of their culture is to bring the bouquet to the bride and recite a poem to Marie. Love it!
especially when Kosi, Angie Cruz' assistant, exclaimed - "andyan na ang mga Kastila! sasakupin tayo!!! Dali, pasakop tayo!" hahahahah! :-)
