Our Midsummer Night's Dream Themed Reception

Though I had every confidence that Ms. Pinky Chang's team of Pink Flora and our very dear wedding planner Ms. Cielo Villegas of Blushing Bride would effectively pull off our desired Midsummer Night's Dream themed reception, still the moment I walked into the Shangri-La Marquee I was totally blown away. Our reception was magical, enchanting, surreal... like walking into a  very wonderful dream.

And the beautiful and very tasty cake created by Ms. Marissa Unchuan was the perfect complement.

My Wedding Dress + the Shoes + My Groom's Suit + Our Entourage

I told Jun Escario I just wanted an elegant lace wedding gown with a silhouette that would add inches and would not overwhelm my petite form. I love what he created for me.

Our First Dance

It was literally our first dance because we never went dancing before. Being in a long distance relationship, having only the chance to meet twice a year, it had never crossed our minds to go dancing. Besides, though I love him so much I don’t want to lie and say he’s a brilliant dancer...

Okay I am not much of a dancer too.

But there’s no escaping it. As customary in weddings, we had to dance our first dance as husband and wife. We ruled out dancing waltz as I wouldn’t want to bore our guests (and me) to tears. Or Swing, as I am awfully clumsy in anything ballroom. So we opted to copy the style of some first dances we saw in YouTube. A mix of slow dance first and then the music would suddenly change into a jolly or "dancy" tune.

Married at Last!

Yes I am finally a missus :)

And not only did our December 28, 2009 wedding went by without any glitch, it was everything I had hoped it would be. From the church ceremony to the reception, everything was magical.

They say that to a bride's point of view her wedding day is usually one big blur as so many things happening seemingly all at once. But mine was not one big blur. Not at all. Believe me, I remember every minute, every second of it. I was able to soak it all up. A gorgeous friend of mine even commented that I must be the most relaxed bride she has ever seen. True. Not because I am good at suppressing my nerves but because from the moment I woke up that day I was already confident everything would fall into place. Our big day would be perfect. We were in good hands. We had an excellent wedding planner (Ms. Cielo Villegas of Blushing Bride). And true enough, she delivered... more than 100% even! I enjoyed our big day so much that I was sad it had to end.
