“It was surreal but definitely, real. And that moment we knew, it was the dream we have always wanted,” shares Ycoy Sitchon, Founder of La Belle Fête, on her recent renewal of vows ceremony with husband Jeff Sitchon. To celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, Jeff and Ycoy took a break from the grandeur they’ve grown accustomed to and opted for an intimate and tastefully curated affair with with family. Their experience as event planners and as parents was put to the test as they executed their own destination wedding with two kids in tow, assisted by only three suppliers, and committed to complying with safety protocols.
The result of all the careful planning was an elegant ceremony that simply radiated their love and family. Jeff could not hold back his emotions as Ycoy, hand-in-hand with their two children Liam and Laverne, walked down the aisle to this soul-stirring special arrangement of “Simula” by TJ Monterde an KZ Tandingan. Be prepared to find inspiration in every frame as you look through the photos shared by Ycoy Sitchon, along with a few of her own words on planning and executing this breathtaking and incredibly moving fête.
