FOR A FULL "EXPERIENCE" OF REBELLIOUS BRIDE MICA'S AWESOME WEDDING CLICK HERE:
Rebellious Bride Mica
And just. like. that. After less than 7 months of wedding planning, Rebellious Bride Mica is now Mrs. Fuentes!
The wedding was just as we expected it to be and so much MORE. Mica's groom (and now husband--hyessss!) wanted everything to be a surprise. We didn't know where the venue was going to be 'till the invitations were released a month before the wedding. But we knew well enough that it was going to be rebellious, super fun, and Little Rascals themed.
Mica and Marc's wedding brimmed with sooooo many thoughtful, DIY, rebellious, creative, and happy details. In the next few days to come, we will be releasing exclusive raw clips from the wedding! I won't bug Mica just yet--but hopefully, when she's got the time, we can share with you the AWESOME videos that were shown during the wedding which included: Marc's uber uber uber sweeeeet and rebellious proposal, their equally rebellious prenup video by Ian Cruz, and their surprise Same Day Edit by Wang. And we hope that before the month ends, we can also have the first look at the highly anticipated Mango Red photos of the wedding!
In the meantime, here are some photos I took from my iPod touch, using the Instagram, Hipstamatic, and Lomo apps. Enjoy!
|M is for Mica and Marc sitting in a tree! |
|Our Rebellious Bride wore an equally rebellious gorgeous gown by Sassa Jimenez, if a ballerina ever had a non-traditional wedding gown, this would be it!|
|Mica & Marc's wedding was delightfully DIY from head to foot, left and right, top to bottom, inside and out!|
|Mica was a beautiful and purpley bride |
courtesy of her own make-up prowess!
|Mica was super CHILL during her wedding preps. In fact, when Nina and I decided to have lunch at Trilogy--- a few steps away from Mica's condo...she gamely went with us to have a spur-of-the-moment photo session with Mango Red!|

Mica's awesome mom, Tita Grace.
Right: One of Mica's bridesmaids Nina Cuenca and her hubby Mikki Cuenca
|The ceremony was "FUN FUN LANG" but there were tear-jerker moments like Mica's walk down the aisle and Marc's vows---yes my dears, the groom teared up! Awww......|
|The Rebellious Groom FINALLY found his perfect Alfalfa-inspired bow tie from Singapore! O-TAY! :)|
|The church had the shortest wedding aisle I have ever seen|
--but it was witness to one of the most memorable weddings ever.
|Marc of Mango Red in action--complete with sneakers and a bow tie!|
|The boys of the entourage were given felt boutonnieres, and neck ties that were personally made by Mica's mom|
To "commemorate" this very purpley wedding, my "candle partner"/hubby wore a purple plaid polo!

Both the entourage and the guests really embraced the dress code! Everyone looked so chic in their ballerina-inspired outfits!
Move over royal wedding!

After 7 months, the secret venue was finally revealed!
Mica & Marc's reception venue was absolutely
|One of the coolest and chic playgrounds I have ever seen, |
Mica & Marc's rebellious reception was done at the
third floor of Ronac Art Center's basketball court called The Playground.
|Instead of the usual guest book, an album of Mica & Marc's Mango Red prenup photos were put on the registration table where guests could doodle on the album and write thought bubbles!|
|Instead of the usual photo booth, Mica & Marc's photo booth backdrop was another DIY labor of love--this time, it was decked with quirky purple & turquoise paper flowers|
Mica & Marc's rebellious registration table was so delightful! There were DIY picture frames, chalks, cute sipits, and other scrapbook/DIY materials scattered everywhere. Upon approaching the table, the coordinators would ask for your name, and tell you which table you were assigned to--our table was Little Rascals-inspired and was called "The Go Kart Table"--then they will instruct you to either make a DIY message for the couple or grab some of the materials to take home as souvenirs!
|True to the Little Rascals theme, the cocktail area had |
white crates and fences!
|Even the cake was DIY!!!|
Mica & Marc opted for a plain white fondant carrot cake
guests could contribute to the cake's design by doodling on it!
|Since Little Rascals don't know how to spell yet, |
I made a mistake on the cake! Hahahah :)
|The basketball court was turned into this fun hall, with four long tables with 150 guests|
This is by far one of the most awesome reception venues I have ever seen!
|DIY frames were scattered everywhere and could be taken home as souvenirs!|
|The table name plates were written like doodles a'la Little Rascals. |
I just had to keep ours as decors for our condo!
|From purple ballet flats to chunky turquoise rings, entourage gifts were personal and just as quirky and fun.|
|These purple and turquoise cake lollipops |
were soooooo yummy and fun!
|HOORAY to one of the most creative, fun fun, rebellious weddings EVER!|
