We'd like to formally congratulate one of our Wedding Agency couples Kathleen & Dingdong for finally tying the knot in Shangri-La, Boracay! 

While we impatiently wait for the official photos, we'd like to share with you guys some of the elements of their wedding. 

A Modern Fairytale...

When K&D first briefed us, it was quite clear that Kathleen was the romantic one and Dingdong was the more techie one. At the heart of their wedding was that it was going to be a modern fairytale--the best way to describe how Kathleen & Dingdong perfectly blended together as one heart & soul. But since it was a fairytale, it needed a title. A title that literally went through an evolution of sorts. In the end, while finalizing venue locations for their prenup, Kathleen herself had an epiphany of naming their fairytale as a "Romantic Discovery" and the rest you could say, was happily ever after.

The Fairytale/Romantic  part of it represented the bride. While the Modern/Discovery part of it represented the groom. A lot of the design elements were inspired by the modern Rapunzel fairytale 'Tangled'. It was definitely not the usual Boracay wedding elements that we've been used to.

From peg to the actual output, the invitations were inspired by the TV Series Revenge

The bride loves sunsets--the wedding palette was inspired by it! The second beautiful omen of the day arrived before the reception - from Rainbows to Sunsets, it was as if God himself was celebrating with the couple that day.  (Photo grabbed from the couple's sister Zarah)

The couple didn't want their wedding to look like the usual Boracay wedding. So the bride looked to the illuminating lights that was a signature look of the modern fairytale 'Tangled' for inspiration. 
The modern, techie groom made sure he had his own vibe to be ever-present in the wedding too. Hence, the metallic and techie touches.

Kathleen & Dingdong will always be special to us. I can still remember how, during the first week into our servicing period with Kathleen we were able to establish a teamwork with her. By the end of the week we had her wedding date down (not an easy task if you have popular suppliers), got her pencil booked with Amanda Tirol, Nelwin Uy, Mark Cantalejo, and Cary Santiago; and eventually got Fozzy, Badang Rueda, VDJ JT Rius, Madge Lejano, Mel Orlina, and Lifestyle by Feliz on board. 

We'd like to personally congratulate the awesome team of Mayad for capturing Kathleen & Dingdong's Romantic Discovery wedding exactly how the couple envisioned their blissful wedding would be like. Watching the wedding film literally brought us back to when we were still making K+D's walkthrough. Bravo! 

Congratulations to our princess and prince charming! More to come soon from Mark Cantalejo and Nelwin Uy. But in the meantime, let's watch the photo slideshow from Nelwin :)
