“They say that there’s no such thing as a PERFECT wedding but I believe we had a PERFECT one…”
– Raisa (12.19.2015)
Sometimes, couples tend to get overwhelmed with wedding details that makes them forget the most important thing on their day. Dan and Raisa’s wedding made me go back to the roots behind weddings, behind those extravagant details, and behind those fairy tale ideals. They brought and reminded us of the most important thing – this raw feeling called love
In a picturesque location in Batangas, two individuals finally said “I do”. A Novo Ecijano couple who are now based in California, USA tied the knot last December 19, 2015 at Club Balai Isabel in Batangas City. Dan Mauel Alejo aka “Dan” and Raisa Camille Manuel aka “Raisa” officially became Mr. and Mrs. Alejo.
Coincidentally, the country, especially South Luzon was experiencing heavy downpour of rain due to typhoon Onyok. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop the couple and proved to everyone that nothing matters except the both of them. Family and friends who came all the way from different parts of the country (or world) made the event more memorable for the couple despite the gloomy weather.
Preparations were made at Club Balai Isabel located at Talisay, Batangas. The location is right on the shores of the famed Taal Lake making the event more romantic that it already is.
The bride’s flawless hair and makeup was done by Rea Pinpin.
The Bride and The Groom
The bride’s off-shoulder wedding gown was made by Edward Teng while the groom looks dashing on his Vera Wang suit.
Would you believe that the entourage’s gowns were made by the mother of the bride herself? Amazing right? You can just feel the effort and love poured in each of every gown.
The ceremony was held at San Guillermo Parish Church located at Talisay Batangas. It was considered to be one of the oldest landmarks in the town.
Dinner was more enjoyable given the entertainment provided by Infinite Soul Acoustic. The event was hosted by Chacha Datu.
The place was transformed and styled by Ver’s Flowershop by Jayward Laganzon who also did the bridal and entourage flowers. JS Mina Lights and Sounds set the mood by providing superb sound quality and complimenting lights for the event styling.
