Binky and Leo | Cebu City | ©2012
The day before my sister's wedding, my Mom and I were running around the city like headless chickens, buying more things and picking up the flowers we ordered. Mom and I arrived home at 10 that evening and we slept at 5am on the day of my sister's wedding. It was crazy. It was a happy kind of crazy.
Binky wanted a simple, intimate, DIY wedding. Mom made candles (all 50 of them) for the tables. I did all the signages, bouquets and boutonnieres, cord, and the decors. Dionne made the belts and petticoats for their dresses. She also hosted the programme and coordinated activities. Azenith and her kids prepared a surprise video. And my darling brother flew in from Iligan to officiate the ceremony. Mom, my sisters, and I did the shopping for all the things we needed. And although we wished we hired a coordinator to help us out on the wedding day itself, we were quite happy about how things turned out.
It was a beautiful day. The ceremony was heartwarming. There were lots of happy tears. And Binky and Leo were surrounded by people they love.
Here's sharing some photos from wedding.
More photos over at Facebook.
Instead of using a pillow, I made a ring holder made of button mums.
Binky's friend, Roger Salazar, made her gown.
She wanted something green for her bouquet and because spider mums (which she liked)
were not available at that time, I made her this bouquet made of some leaves (the name now escapes me).
The bride wore very simple ballet flats. We bought some brooch at Carbon market for some accent.
The groom during dress up. I made the boutonnieres for the groom and principal sponsors.
I painted signages for her wedding.
As they say, love is in the details. :)
The Bride, rushing to the venue.
Favors and fans. Oh, to tie all those ribbons! :D
My sister D -- bridesmaid and mananahi extraordinaire. :D
Here, Michelle giving her Dad her blessings.
Michelle was the one who put together the wedding liturgy guide.
And this, our Anyo, who made us laugh and gave us occasional heart attacks with his naughty antics.
Bo covered her eyes when her Mom and Papa kissed.
My brother, a pastor, officiated the wedding.
He looks a lot like my Mom, no? :)
The table centerpiece: used bottles, leaves from Mom's garden, tadtaran, and candles made by Mom.
A toast for the Bride and Groom by my brother. Blessings, blessings, blessings!
Just follow the signs. :)
