This Couple Invited 1,200 Guests to Their Magnificent Indoor Garden Wedding!

When we talk about grand weddings, we mostly look at the styling and the scale of it, and believe me when I say that today’s wedding is ultra grand in both those aspects. Celebrity stylist Kimi Yap wed Jarvis Sy in a magnificent fete that their guests (and even we) will most likely never forget! Can you believe that they invited 1,200 guests?!! Throw in a gorgeous Michael Cinco wedding gown, citrine-colored entourage dresses by Martin Bautista, which was the same color of Kimi’s dress when Jarvis proposed to her, and the most breathtaking setup by the one and only Gideon Hermosa, and the result was secret garden-esque–the stuff dreams are made out of. We were lucky enough to ask the bride herself for some tidbits about the wedding planning, so keep scrolling to see how she (along with her groom and trusted suppliers) was able to pull everything off! All thanks to Pat Dy for sharing these amazing photos with us, and giving us a glimpse into this enchanted wonderland.

Should I Have an Intimate Wedding or a Grand Wedding?
