We all know that weddings now are different because of the pandemic, but even before the limitations were posed by the community quarantine, there were already many couples who chose to do intimate weddings.
For Santi and Alice, they chose to get married in a small chapel in Bacolod City and had their intimate reception in a cousin’s beautiful hacienda in Silay, Negros Occidental. Both of them wore stunning eco-friendly outfits designed by Joseph Aloysius Montelibano, an eco-designer that advocates sustainable fashion and uses local weaves and textiles. Groom Santi donned a local suit that’s handwoven hablon by a community in Iloilo while Bride Alice wore a customized gown with hand-embroidered leaf patterns by women in Taal. Their fashion statement isn’t the only eye-catching detail in this intimate wedding. Santi designed most of their wedding favors too–from invites down to the souvenirs–he even learned calligraphy to personally write their invitations. Isn’t that amazing?
