The promise of forever seems very hard to achieve. This couple has proven that LOVE, regardless of how you you picture it out to be depends on a DECISION. Something to keep within, something to hold on to, something to last.
Their wedding was one of the very intimate, simple yet classic in every way. Rems had faithfully inculcated every bit of the persona unto it. The color scheme was her favorite without a doubt. The femininity and softness of the details were visibly much thought of.

A hand-tied bouquet of white and pale pink Ecuadorian roses was made by April and Karen

The entourage held the pink flowers with lavander hydrangeas to match their lavander gownLetterpressed formal inviation was printed by Craftmaster.
The misalettes carried out the same plum ribbons and design as the formal invites

The fabulous gown and shoes were done by Nicko of Veluz. I guess that particular design showcased Rem's toned arms and back and her petite figure.

The bride was beautifully made up by the the tandem of Jesy Alto and Raymond Kho.
I like this particular shot where the bride is having some "me time" during the wedding preps
What I particularly loved the most about Rems is her... voice :) Hers had this natural charm like a baby's. Once she giggles, she would light up the whole room. Nevertheless, she also had this certain strength of character in her voice that a Filipina woman has.

On the other hand, Danny is a natural when it comes to conversation. Try to get him drunk and he becomes a clown ( peace :) ). I still remember how he used to tease Rems about their wedding dance. That he did quite a good job and Rems totally blew it. :) Give it to the man, he embraced the Catholic faith as a proof of his undying love for Rems.
They could never have chosen a better church than Caleruega for their event. The chapel looked so serene that particular day. We were also blessed with a very good weather.
For their reception, the couple chose Splendido Golf and Country club. This venue perfectly fitted their somewhat Vineyard inspired wedding.

The couple opted for long style English banquet tables. April and Karen created clusters of pink and plum flowers as great centerpieces, accentuated with vanilla scented candles. This created a balance of rustic feel and femininity.

Each table had names held by a rustic gold frame
Placecards adorned every seat with a floral button on top of the table napkins
The cake arrive plain but April and Karen had it decorated with fresh flowers, making it an instant eye-candy.
This is the famous wedding dance where someone made a booboo according to the groom haha. It was a very fun wedding dance, actually.

The games were actively particpated by the guests. This is an advantage of having an intimate affair since all your guests are relatively very very close friends and relatives.Wedding host Melissa Ferrer-Litao headed the wedding program.
Who would even imagine that another dance would be one of the evening's highlights?
Let me leave you with two of the couple's portraits taken after the wedding ceremonies. I am pretty sure they will leave up to their words " I will Stand by you forever"
