Many couples endure the test of time even before tying the knot. One might even say that the most successful relationships are those that have experienced the most challenges. Manuel and Ywee’s bond exemplifies this kind of relationship. Going back ten years ago, the couple met when Ywee was going through an emotional phase and Manuel was able to lift her spirits. Fast forward to the present, and Manuel still plays this role in their relationship─ he is Ywee’s rock whenever she feels overwhelmed.
When we heard their vows, we could tell how purely in love Manuel and Ywee are. Ywee found a home within Manuel. Meanwhile, Manuel will do everything he can to make sure Ywee is safe. They compliment each other so well. Together, they have faced challenges way out of their comfort zone. One of which is when they moved to Australia, away from their families. However, no difficult test can break a bond like theirs. Here they are now, back in the Philippines to tell their tale!
It was a beautiful October afternoon at the scenic Balai Taal, Tagaytay. The sky was clear, the grass was a lively shade of green, and there were smiles everywhere. Manuel and Ywee prayed for things to go smoothly on their wedding day, but it was way more than what they wished for. To them, it was as perfect as it can go.
The theme was minimalist greenery. Their color palette explores the shades of green, white, and grey. The bridesmaids were blooming, wearing a white top and a green tulle skirt. While the men were striking in their white polo and grey slacks. Complimenting the theme were the flowers, which were mostly green and white like the boutonnieres. One of our favorites were their wonderfully detailed invitations. This gorgeous, simple yet classy wedding is admirably “theme-oriented”. And we’re more than happy to show you!
