It's my first day back at work as a new missus. I missed my wifely duties and housewife routine of the last two weeks while I was at work earlier. I am still on our wedding bubble and I want to extend for one more week our vacation BUT sadly off to work we go. Gotta save for that honeymoon trips!

One of the things that made me happy last night was our on-site photo slideshow by Nicolai Melicor. It was the same day edit of our photos that was featured in our wedding reception. We finally got our copy yesterday.

Witt & Abbie

Nicolai Melicor is the best! She's one of the first suppliers we booked and met back in January 2015. There are so many good wedding photographers in the Philippines today but we chose Nicolai for her colorful and vivid style. We love the brightness and lifelike style of her photos and her team's. We are not really the dramatic, slow-shutter-low exposure, play of lights kind of couple so we opted for Nicolai and her playful saturation and natural light type of photography. More review on this soon!

For the meantime - here's our on-site wedding slideshow...

Music: Run Run by The Rival

We are very very happy how this turned-out. Nicolai and her team beautifully captured the happy, emotional, and candid moments that we had in our wedding. Wagas ang kaligayahan ko, diba? 

Also - here is the list of awesome our suppliers whose works were featured in the video. I am hoping to write a review about each of them very soon. I just really need to sit down and find time to do it.

    Thanks again in advance!

    There's an air-conditioned social hall in Pasa Tiempo but I think it's capacity is only around 100. We had ours in the Lawn Area. Thanks!

  16. Hi Abbie! Who was your tent supplier and how was your experience with them? Did it rain during your wedding day?

  17. Hi, JigoXkarla! My wedding supplier was Tent King. They are okay in terms of responsiveness and account handling. I would have opted for a bigger concert-levels tent (even if we had their two big tents). Their tent is more horizontal and I would've preferred a larger square one. If you're getting married in Montecito - try to inquire about their in-house tent. It was nice based on the photos I saw.


  18. Hi Miss Abbie,

    Will you please send me the rates for Montecito? Budgeting purposes :) Thank you!
