Love in a Private Island: This Wedding Went Beyond Just “I Do’s”

What can make you say that a wedding is beautiful? For Bryan and Angel, it’s when both their families are having such a good time together! So, they decided to have a destination wedding in the private island of Balesin to make their celebration really intimate and meaningful. The entire flow of their wedding made sure that every guest was able to participate and not just attend–from the different games and activities planned out to heartfelt messages given. Bryan and Angel went beyond just saying their vows and committing to each other. They were successful in marrying their two families, too, and it was all so beautiful! All the elements of this wedding are so on point, from the custom cake by Naked Patisserie to the incredible hosting of Atom Ungson, and it’ll be better if I let the photos of Metrophoto do the talking. Scroll through and take notes on how this couple pulled it off!

“I’ve always wanted to have a destination wedding, but not because we wanted to do it in an exotic location but so that we can make it as intimate and meaningful as possible.” Angel, Bride

“We have no regrets in having a destination wedding, but we definitely realized how challenging the logistics were considering that Balesin was a completely private island and everything had to be arranged for and transported directly to the island. We also learned about how critical a well thought-out plan and team was to make sure everything ran smoothly.” Angel, Bride

“We wanted something fresh, simple yet elegant and so our wedding planner helped us come up with a final theme and style based on my personal pegs. We named it “Coastal Charm”—a classy, romantic, ethereal seaside theme with a beautiful palette of dusty rose, mauve, serenity, blush and hints of greenery and bleached hues.” Angel, Bride

“The guests mostly enjoyed the ability to celebrate our wedding with no inhibitions whatsoever. Almost everyone knew each other by the end of the weekend and new friendships were definitely formed and strengthened from the activities.” Angel, Bride

“The entire flow of the wedding made sure that every guest was able to participate in the wedding and not just attend, from the different games and activities we held, we were really happy to see basically everyone have some sort of part in the wedding.” Angel, Bride

“The sweetest part for me was when Bryan threw aside his vow book, knelt on one knee, and finished his vows to me. Our first dance together and the dances with our parents were really special too.“ Angel, Bride

“We think that the best part, after all the fun and games, is how the wedding was able to further nurture and strengthen the bonds of friendship and family across our guests.” Angel, Bride

“Our new siblings partied together and are now talking about meeting up after the wedding, our circle of friends became better friends and are also now talking about going on more trips together, and even our parents and their close friends have been talking about going on a trip together too. We’re so happy that the love Bryan and I shared during the wedding extended between all of our family and friends too.” Angel, Bride
