This Couple Managed to Have a Simple Church Wedding and a D.I.Y Reception at Home!

Jay and Kris were scheduled to get married a few days after the first official announcement of the Enhanced Community Quarantine in Metro Manila. They tossed and turned while deciding if they should push through with their 200-guest wedding as they didn’t want to put anybody’s health and safety at risk. After consulting their coordinator, the couple accepted the fact that the current pandemic was a hindrance to their original plans. They decided to move their big celebration to 2021 but still push through with an intimate ceremony on their original date.

“We thought, all documentary requirements by the church were already complete anyway, it’d be such a waste if we didn’t push through. And besides, “4.19.20” was already engraved in our wedding rings!” -Kris, bride

They celebrated their special day with only a priest, a photographer, and two members of the family, who stood as their witnesses. In spite of the small number of people present, Jay and Kris were still able to have the wedding of their dreams! Check out the photos from Mayad Studios to see their simple, yet unforgettable day.

“I realized, Pwede naman palang ganito. It’s surprising how minimal the requirements really are to get married. Officiant, bride, groom, rings, two witnesses. That’s it.”  – Kris, bride

Dried Leaves and Fresh Flowers Gave This Baguio Wedding An Elevated Rustic Look!

Today’s wedding feature is set within Baguio’s lush and chilly forests, which was transformed into a warm and rustic garden wedding for Dale and Allyne. What we love most about it is though the celebration was already set outdoor, the couple still incorporated more nature-inspired decors but with a twist. Dried leaves and floral arrangements from the reception arch to the bridal bouquet were paired beautifully, and this created an elevated rustic feel. There were a lot of wooden elements as well, which perfectly suited the outdoor theme. Scroll down below to see more photos captured by Owen and Nikka Photography!
