We did it! 🙂 after a year of careful planning and detailing, our wedding is finally over! And just as we have envisioned it to be, our special day was laid back and fun, intimate, and simple with cute little details. It was simply the best day of our lives. :).

Our overall theme was “rustic and handmade” and until now we still hear praises about how our wedding was so beautiful and so heartfelt. It’s the simplicity with splashes of design that mattered – we wanted details without going over the top. Each was carefully thought about, individually at that – and during the wedding day itself, we were amazed how each of the items we purchased and/or made fit together so perfectly! To be honest, what happened that day was even more than how I originally thought of. God really blessed us with everything – even the beautiful sunshine that He showered us that day.

I’m proud to say that we are proof that you need not spend much to make your dream wedding a reality. Our total spend could probably be just half of the budget of the other weddings I witnessed. It all boils down to prioritizing must-haves vs wants, getting suppliers who can deliver, has a reputable name, but doesn’t cost much. I probably spent every night of the last 365 days researching about weddings and stuff, but it’s definitely worth it!

Of course, there are elements too that we let ourselves splurge a little bit. Cholo had his own panggulat moment as well and nag-change outfit din sya sa reception. We billeted at Oakwood Hotel which set us back a couple of thousands more than the other option. I also had a brooch bouquet done instead of the fresh one that comes with the package (thanks Cheri Handicrafts!). Lastly, and probably the biggest splurge, was getting Moki Gray as stylist to do my ceremony altar and the photo station for the photo booth.

 So here you go, ladies and gentlemen, enjoy our wedding photos! 🙂
