I am having a major awww moment over this wedding. I mean, any wedding where the couple does labor of love for their own decors will always win our hearts! From the fabric bouquets, to the wooden hangers, the invitations and so much more–the couple’s very own DIY company is in full bloom. What a great way to spend that precious time together, and actually cut costs. This rustic and whimsical celebration with Bantug Lake Ranch playing backdrop is beautifully captured by Photo Diaries .
And top all that with a letter from the groom just below. Because our heart melts when the groom is just as excited (and meticulous!) as his bride. Awww!
From the Groom..Trixie and I got engaged on Christmas Day in 2014. The original plan was to have a May wedding the following year. But due to some circumstances seen and foreseen, we ultimately decided to do it on November 27th of 2015. We opted to have a DIY (do-it-yourself) wedding because of the following reasons: first, we were not quite happy with most wedding packages available out there in terms of getting the best value out of your money; and second, we thought it would be a fun thing to do and besides, with 11 months at our disposal, we believed we had enough time to do everything ourselves (well, almost everything). Doing it DIY-style offered some advantages — one was that we got to consider each option carefully and decide on each aspect of our Big Day on our own terms. We chose to have a ceremony with a rustic theme and planned a reception that would be more of a fun and picnic-like event instead of being a super formal affair. We found the perfect venue for what we envisioned, Bantug Lake Ranch, just outside Bacolod City. With the help of family, friends, and a limited but very reliable list of suppliers, and most especially with the grace and love of God who gifted us with perfect weather on the day, we were able to turn the wedding we have always dreamed of into a reality.
