How time flies. Just a while ago, the holiday chill is still in the air. Now it's starting to rain...and we haven't completed the prework for our wedding album. Hahaha! =)

We would like to say thank you to all those who spared some time during their busy Christmas Eve to be with us on our special day. We were very happy to see all of you. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we have. For those who are far away, we know that your prayers and well wishes have found us.

Continue to check out our blog (yes siree, Karen Sue is still at it!) and photo album for the latest (official event photos now available!). Listen to music from our wedding. Get to know our wedding event partners who made our special day a success. Contact Us for anything and please do sign our guestbook, too!

Again, thank you very much for your love and support. God bless everyone! ^_^

Jack & Jenn Catering
Las Piñas City,
Caterers

We can’t say thank you to Jack & Jenn Catering enough.

It might have been luck—or divine intervention. We got to know about Jack & Jenn Catering at exactly the right time during the planning period for our Christmas Eve 2010 wedding. They offer a wide range of services—everything you would ever need for your event—and packages at reasonable costs. But more than that, Jack & Jenn Catering offers you support, advice and friendship during your preparations. Their superwoman, Ms. Jenne Rabe-Alleva, has been a blessing from the time we first met. A professional friend, if there is such. In the middle of her busy schedule, she finds time to answer all our long (and we mean loooooong) emails and random text messages. She was also our fantastic host during our reception program.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Ms. Anna, who has been of much assistance during our prenup shoot and other transactions along the way. We also thank her OTD staff: Ms. Michelle, Ms. Rachel and Ms. Joan (goodness, did we get the names right?) who have truly been our wedding angels. After weeks of pressure during the preps, the wedding day itself was suddenly almost totally stress-free for us, and we were really able to enjoy ourselves and our special day. Thank you to the catering staff, moving along in the background, who seem well-trained and were attentive to our needs but not intrusive. And of course, Ms. Mavel whom we first came in contact with back in October 2009, when we made our first inquiry.

Thank you very much, Jack & Jenn. It has been a blessing that we found you.

P.S. We love the Roast Beef with Corn and the Grilled Pork with Beer and Honey. Must try dishes on their menu! Oh, and the Corn and Quail Egg Soup. That was the only thing we were able to eat while the reception program was underway. Hahaha! =)

We had some communication problems with this supplier along the way, which was upsetting. We are grateful that our Holy Family-motif souvenirs turned out very well despite that and minor deviation from the specs. The rating I post here is more for the quality of the output.

Parque España Residence Hotel
Muntinlupa City,
Hotels/Accommodations

My first visit to Parque España was actually during our prenup pictorial shoot last September. The staff are polite and unobtrusive, and the view from the rooftop is fantastic.

Three months after, my husband and I stayed at Parque España Residence Hotel Alabang on our wedding night last Christmas Eve. We didn’t get to see the rooms during our prenup, but I know that our accommodation was supposed to have dining and kitchen facilities, cable TV, and all the usual stuff because it said so on their brochure. My husband, who was already checked in the night before the wedding, just said the room was nice, and I headed there after the wedding expecting standard amenities. So I was definitely surprised to find a dining area with a table for four, a living room, and the kitchen (complete with kitchen appliances) and bedroom in separate rooms. It was huge for just the two of us. It was like being in a condo. I think I could actually live there na. There were two cable TVs so we didn’t have to argue over the remote. Hahaha! I love the feel of the room. It’s true what they say on the website. I just wanted to put my feet up. It really was like being home. I would love to stay there again. =)

Thank you very much Mr. Rey and Bridesdream for the lovely work on my wedding gown and the gowns and barongs of our parents and entourage. The dress designs we gave them to work on were simple, but they enhanced them to make the them even more beautiful, especially the wedding gown. Thank you, thank you so much! =)

We know that this season is a very busy time for most parishes, so as early as two years ago, we started our quest. And it is with love and gratitude that we thank The Holy Family Parish (HFP) for granting our request to hold our wedding in their beautiful church on Christmas Eve.

Than you very much to HFP's wedding coordinator, Ms. Baby Ibareta, for her effort in helping make our wedding ceremony on time and in order. We had such a beautiful ceremony. Thank you also to Ms. Josie and Ms. Marlene for assisting us in all our requirements from day one. Last but not the least, thank you to Rev. Fr. Leticio Malayo for celebrating our special day with us.

Dangkalan Resort and Restaurant, Palawan
Las Piñas,
Honeymoon

We enjoyed our 5-day stay at this peaceful, secluded beachfront resort even before we checked in (we transacted with them via email only and it wasn't difficult). The staff had been most accommodating and the tours they arranged for us c/o their affiliate Asialinks Travel were fun and hassle-free. I especially thank them for their extra effort in the arrangements for my birthday surprise for hubby.

There are only a few safety issues we encountered regarding our accommodation, but overall, we recommend this place (and Palawan! So beautiful!) to anyone who really wants to kick back and relax with their loved ones (or even solo!).

Despite the very early call-time, the staff of Leo Priagola were right on time (even earlier).Everyone of them was still sleepy (December being a busy time for them) but they brought out the beauty in everyone who sat in front of their portable makeup stand. Beautiful work! Thank you!
