That. Is. So. Not. Me. I don't have an idea of a dream wedding. Unlike most of the girls I know, who were already thinking of their dream wedding when they were young girls (I am not sure if I should blame Disney fairy tales), I never thought of my wedding. Or a dream man. Maybe, at this age, I should start thinking what my real preference is. I am too old to be confused.
Anyway, the set-up was not actually done when I arrived. Jay and Jen of Flower Power were still doing finishing display. It is a Christian wedding and Jen shared that the couple loves wine - which explains the wine bottle displays in every table - that is the first thing I noticed. The table set-up and beautiful flower arrangement.

I suddenly miss reading books..
I love the scroll display that was hand-written by the stylist's mother-in-law.
The wedding cake is also on display. It reminds me of beautiful leaves that you only see during Fall.
It was ordered from Gigi Coffee and Cakes.
I couldn't get tired taking pictures of the set-up.
The sun is shining beautifully that afternoon..
Even the table numbers are well thought of..
Wooden flower vases with hard-bounded books as base
Empty wine bottles make a good flower vase too
We went down to give the family a little privacy, it was time that the Bride has arrived. We, on the other hand also got to taste the nice food offerings from Wine Bar 1771 for their Wedding Package.
Fresh Garden Salad with two dressings
Roasted Rosemary Chicken
Seabrim Aglia Olglio
Pasta with two sauces
Creamy Mushroom Sauce
which is good with the fish dish ;)
We also had a desserts which are sooo good and yummy!
Mango Creme Brulee
Cherry Lemon Torte
I fell inloved with these squares! They were saying that the couple were speechless the first time they tried it, while I, on the other hand wanted to scream with delight! Seriously. I love the blend of flavors - strawberry, with a hint of cheesecake and tiramisu. Three different desserts I love.
You may consider booking a reception in Wine Bar 1771, and work with Flower Power Team (Jay and Jen) for the styling and flower arrangement. Wine Bar 1771 offers wedding food packages and the one that is featured here is worth Php1,699 + (10% service charge). Still a lot cheaper than booking in a hotel. What's nice, you can make the venue more intimate. It can accommodate up to 40 to 100 guests. Will post the details of the Flower Power Team once I get it (unfortunately, they missed to bring business cards that day!)
Now here I am waiting for the groom....
and the bride ;)
