In Black and White ( Mark and Kaye 1.19.08)
Mark and Kaye wanted to celebrate their union in a very unique way. First, they opted for a color/ shade that most would not even think of for a wedding. Elders would utmostly have apprehensions especially when you're living in a country where pamahiins are part of a culture you have grown up with.
But nothing can stop them. They had something on mind and they made it happen. :)
They had everything planned for. Formal invite even stated the guests to be in a black and white formal attire.
The bouquets done by April and Karen Yu spell out elegance and splendid taste. They also happened to style the reception venue making the white flowers stand out against the black linens for the chairs and tables. The backdrop has clean lines and a printed black and white seat cover for the sofa added a little twist to the usual wedding decorations.
Even the groom's items were meticulously chosen and prepared for.
The bride looked stunning. Mickey See and Felicity Son created a fresh look for her. These two artists are so cool as well. They also made the bride feel so relaxed.
The groom's preparation has been relaxed.
Here, Rommel ( our groom expert hehehe) places the buttoinaire just in time for the pictorial.
He also helped durig the groom's dressing up ( in the event that the bestman or siblings are not around).
Bridal preparation has been busy as ever. All details must be covered. :)
While photographers change lenses or check their shots, Kaye remains composed and relaxed.
Of course, all suppliers and relatives present in the hotel deserves a lunch break. This time, the couple chose to have Thai in Box. Lunchbreaks also give time to bond a little. Buti nalang di Dinuguan and puto, Otherwise, it would have also been thematic. :)
Their chosen church, National Shrine of the Sacred heart in Makati is one of David's well liked church.. Parish usherettes are very accommodating and the church altar is very very beautiful in pictures.
Guests even had the opportunity to goof with the couple after the shower of petals.
It pays to have a great photographer. On this event, Anthony ( owner of East Digital) personally handled the post ceremony pictorials
Thr couple used black and white nissan patrol as wedding cars. ASTIG!
Highlights of the reception:
The black and white cake made an ultimate difference. It tasted well anyway. :)
Nothing beats a serenade prepared by the groom for his bride
Marriage gets better as it gets longer. Here, the newlywed was given a crash course on kissing 101.
While singles would prefer not to win on this game :)
Guests were also entertained by the new generation of The Sentimental Groove.
Our group shot hours after the reception is over. ( while waiting for the couple's ride, after the turnover
And here's my favorite photo of the day taken by David.
Naughty and Nice is an understatement :)
