It’s always nice to experience a familiar venue in a new way. The Glass Garden’s magnificent Diamond Hall was once again a witness to a newlyweds first celebration of their love as man and wife. Ian and Vie had a delightfully colorful wedding at Christ the King Church captured by CamZar Photography and Zoombox Wedding Videos.

Phoebus & Aissel
(Married at Gazebo Royale)

All this talk of tornadoes and hurricanes got me thinking about whirlwind romances … you know the ones that end as quickly as they start. They are the most amazing things, but they are also very destructive, as whirlwinds, tornadoes and hurricanes typically are. Well our featured couple’s love story can only be described as a whirlwind but unlike tornadoes and hurricanes theirs was anything but fleeting…

Meet Aissel and Phoebus… Their love story was a magical mixture of destiny and timing. Once highschool batchmates oblivious to each other’s existence they never thought that one day they’ll be walking down the aisle in a celebration of their love...

(Married on June 08, 2013 at Century Park Hotel)

On San Sebastian’s beautiful and magnificent Gothic church in Malate, Manila the sweet and bubbly couple, Jayson and Christy, said “I do” on June 8, 2013. Christy looked stunning in a white delicately laced gown with beaded and lace shoulder embellishments by Chonalyn Bridal. Her radiant pinkish white complexion was almost translucent thanks to Beauty Addict’s Kim Rodriguez. Jayson, her strapping groom, always by her side, supportive and absolutely adoring of Christy, is the best compliment a bride could ask for!

We appreciate how this lovely couple made time for the Merry Me team in spite of their busy schedules. Their wedding day was a chance to leave the rigors of their intense jobs behind, (Jayson is a successful architect and Christy works for a real estate company) even if just for a day, and embrace their romantic side...

(Married on March 23, 2013 at Contis Katipunan)

Simple can be sensational! Amidst the early morning sun on the most spectacular day in March Homer and Ruselle wed surrounded by those they love the most. Doctors with both hectic schedules it was amazing how they manage to allot time to prepare for their wedding.

For this momentous occasion they have chosen Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish; unimpressive and simple on the outside yet totally spectacular once you get inside their wooden doors. Impressive with a high ceiling, wide open space, and a long aisle for that much awaited bridals walk. Ruselle was absolutely stunning in her Tettet Manese gown. The guys wore traditional barongs and looked every bit as stunning as the women in their blue ball gowns.

Simple, yet personal ceremony spoke of them as a couple, while soft tunes on the acoustic...

Roaldo & Yasmin
(Married on March 10, 2013 at Casa Español)

Planning a wedding can definitely be daunting as there are so many decisions to make and so many details to consider. It takes months sometimes even years of planning. Meet Roaldo and Yasmin a beautiful couple who’s so much in love they just have to tie the knot right away and when I say right away they meant in a week’s time…

The week before their wedding went by in a blur as we booked amazing suppliers who took time out of their busy schedules just to accommodate us in such a short notice. Pressed for time, I had to see the bride almost every day for 1 whole week and it was such a pleasure getting to know a lovely person inside and out. Quiet and calm she deals with stress with amazing grace and manage to say a kind word to everyone.

Set in the wonderful garden of Casa Español the place was completely transformed into the garden venue wedding of their dreams. White chairs lined the aisle in an open field...

(Married on March 02, 2013 at The Loft at Manansala)

A Disney inspired themed wedding with a modern take of the black and ivory theme. Duchay and Eric were such a joy to work with, there was never a dull moment, and meetings were usually filled with laughter, good food and non-stop chattering. Spending time with them, made us even more ecstatic to be a part of their love filled day. Both artists and architects with a quick wit and impeccable taste they made us swoon over all their carefully planned details.

The ceremony was held at the picturesque Don Bosco Church in Makati with an interesting geometric design, high bee hive ceiling and a magnificent golden star right in the middle of the altar. The church was adorned with amazing blooms from Mr. Ariel Subang adding a burst of vibrant color to the church’s elegant design.

Francis & Shelley
(Married on December 27, 2012 at Plaza Ibarra, Quezon City)

A travel themed wedding with a blue and green color motif. It’s nice to meet a couple who’s so in love that distance just can’t keep them apart. Shelley works at China while Francis works at Singapore, but they are both true Pinoys at heart!

Working with them was easy breezy because Shelley’s ideas were well solidified from nearly our first meeting, my dream client I daresay. Correspondence was mainly thru email and I only got to meet both of them a week before the wedding.

On December 27th right after the Christmas festivities Francis and Shelley tied the knot at Basilica San Sebastian, with its' beautiful and breathtaking edifice reminiscent of Gothic architecture. Reception followed at Plaza Ibarra where everyone enjoyed the good food provided by Ibarra’s catering. The night was even made more special because of family and friends hard work as one dance number after another delighted...

Mike & Alaine
(Married on December 12, 2012 at Callospa Resort Antipolo)

There is always something unexplainably beautiful about the classic approach to weddings this time with a modern take of the black and white theme… A few things made this wedding stand out for me let’s see… a gorgeous gown too pretty for words, the entourage’s alluring black dresses, Callospa’s English garden vibe to the reception and the various playful revisions of the wedding program reflective of the couple’s positive spirit.

Meet Alaine and Mike brave souls who did their wedding just the way they want it. I admire their tenacity in sticking to their guns when it came to making the decision to have the ceremony outside, sans the tent and in spite of numerous warnings from various suppliers about a possible rain. A day before the wedding the weather was slightly frightful but on 12/12/12 the heavens gave us a glorious piece of sunshine enough to send me to a wedding dreamy daze!

Callospa set the stage for their ceremony and reception. Arranged to form two aisles, the area was packed with loved ones and friends. Upon cue Mike, Alaine and the entire wedding party processed along their dedicated path down the stairs and proceeded to the gazebo where the ceremony began. The gazebo adorned with flowers has just the right amount of solemnity and elegance as the couple recited their vows...

Carl Bryan & MJ
(Married on September 08, 2012 at Glass Garden Pasig)

We were in love with MJ and Brian from day 1. They were cute, easygoing, and funny and it was such a delight working with a couple who’s so in love with each other. Their wedding was full of adorable little details that will make you love their style even more. Even their wedding video from Neil DC has cuteness written all over it! And I’m pretty sure their photographer Bokehbug enjoyed taking photos of these bubbly newlyweds as they are always ready with a smile and a pose.

The real beauty of this day, however, was their true joy and love for each other. The couples fun and playful style was evident everywhere from the vintage inspired photo booth and guestbook, to the whimsical paper details on the table, this reception was as playful as the couple themselves!

The wedding was made even more memorable and special because of the bride’s surprise song number for her new hubby. The look on Brian’s face was priceless as he...

Kharlo and Honeyleen met in college and got married after years of being together. Their love story started out as just being “barkada” to bestfriends then lovers. We helped them coordinate their special day from day one till the most awaited event, a Christian wedding that was held at “The Party Place, Frances Theresa Garden” in Montalban, Rizal last August 20, 2011.

It was a garden setting and a ballroom reception. The venue was indeed a sight to behold, with a great splash of colors, the halls filled with the purple and pink with a small kick of green as their motif, and a ton of photos everywhere.

A big blessing was that even with though ordeal of the rain, since the venue had just constructed the roof on the venue, our couple was the first to use of these facilities. It was quite an intimate event that was attended by around 100 close family and...

Angel and Star – A Match Made in Heaven
(Married on February 19, 2012 at Mt. Carmel Church)

Someone who has always been around, lingering in the background, passing each other everyday but not really noticing he or she is there. We never know who we end up with; we never know where we meet them. Like Angel and Star, they would never have known until they knew.

They have been working for the same company for a couple of years, they did not really know each other well, but they pass by each other almost everyday. They were acquainted, became friends and we all know where this is heading to.

They were wed last February, at the Mount Carmel Church in Quezon City, it was a small gathering of their close friends and family, people whom they wanted to share this special event with. They had their reception at the Church’s function hall...
