A love to Last

There's something about the Grecian culture that inspires and fascinates me. 
Back in college, my friends would call me Greek Goddess because of my fashion sense.

No wonder, when the time comes that I will ever get married, 
the theme will come as a no-brainer. Prepare for something divine.

Welcome to my humble home.  

All thanks to Jas, Echie and I were able to squeeze some time to visit this 
beautiful temple, on our short trip to Cebu last July :) 

It was raining back then but I didn't mind getting soaked
as long as I get great photos. Yes, for the love of photos!!!
My bestfriend was so concerned that I might get sick. 

I love you to bits! 

Located in Brgy Busay, Temple of Leah was built in 2012 by Ellen Adarna's grandfather
 Teodorico Adarna to honor his beloved wife of 53 years, Leah, who died of cancer. 

All of Leah's personal collection of books
and various art pieces are said to be housed in this grand temple.
Entrance fee for this 'tourist attraction' is Php 50.

Credits to my bestfriend Echie for taking my photos as well as for capturing 
the Grecian and Roman inspired architectural design and facade.
 She was very kind to share these with me.

Leah is indeed very lucky to have a man like Teodorico. He is such a keeper.
Death may have separated them physically, but the love they have for each other
remains to be intact through this magnificent tribute.

Someday, I do hope to find the man that I will love for the rest of my life.
I don't know when, where and who but hopefully in God's perfect timing, I will.

Cebu is like my second home.

Seasons of Love

Weddings never fail to make my heart flutter. 
What more seeing our bestfriend walk down the aisle, marrying the love of her life.
So much happy tears for the couple.

Knowing Jasmin has been one of my life's greatest blessings. 
Being bestfriends with her for 10 years, I've seen her go through victories & hardships, 
as well as happiness & heartache.

I find it rather amazing on how beautiful destiny played a part in their love story.
Who would have thought that her classmate back in grade school would be
that same guy who would steal her heart in 2013.

 Timing has never been perfect <3

A week may have passed since Echie and I flew to Cebu to witness a new chapter of their love story;
I must say that this wedding is by far the best I've been to. 
From the venue to the preparations, down to the maid of honor speech
 and special performances, everything was beyond perfect.

The couple was very hands-on, in fact the wedding invitations and giveaways were
 designed by them. They call themselves EA Designs Co. (in short for Ellen & Andrei)
So if you have any upcoming celebrations, you might want to get in touch with them.
They are very talented and professional, down to the minute details :)

Just look at this beautifully boxed bridesmaid kit

And what's inside of it. 
The couple really knows how to take care of their entourage.
From the robes to matching earrings and bags (and of course alcohol)
Cheers to good times! <3

And yes a big thank you to our various MUAs for glamming us up

The stunning Maid of Honor, Jen

She is the twin of Jas and one of the main reason for the wedding's big success
They are indeed very blessed to have each other.

So glad to celebrate this special occasion with blockmates and friends

The reception is where all the fun starts. The moment I entered the Grand Convention Center, 
it's as if I'm in another universe --- a secret yet happy place where all our dreams come to life.

In front of me was the longest and biggest ledwall measuring 192 feet wide, 
created by RM Events Maker. It took days to set this all up.

Simple Wishes Events headed by Ms. Debbie Huang did an incredible job
 in bringing the autumn theme to life. I'm so impressed with her work that when I get married,
I may commission her to make my dream wedding a reality (that's if I get married, lol)

With Cara, Mae & Val

Also, a big thank you to this guy :) 
Pretty much drank a lot and lost count. Rest was history. Lol
Thank you for taking care of us and for staying the whole night just 
to make sure we will be okay. Marks of a true gentleman! I owe you one.

Just in case you missed it, here's the SDE video by Treehouse Story 

Before I end this post, here's our surprise performance for the groom.
Indeed, you do crazy things for love. We had so much fun!!! :)

Love is indeed just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning.
In God's perfect timing, may we all find the love we deserve :)
