This is the story of our wedding day. On a beautiful summer day in 2016, two souls that started their relationship with sweet exchanges, began a lifelong commitment of love at the Montecito Chapel in Nuvali. The bride, who wore a dreamy Julianne Syjuco gown, married her groom, who looked dashing in his Edwin Tan suit. The wedding entourage, bridesmaids and flower girls were equally lovely in their Elizabeth Hallie Design dresses made of sheer tulle and lace in shades of pink, peach, teal and rose gold. It was a wedding away from the city, and multi-talented event stylist Michael Badang Rueda magically transformed the venue, The Holy Family Pavillion, which extended its reception area to the sprawling garden of Angelfields Nature Sanctuary, into an enchanted garden by wrapping trees in fairy lights and using succulents, flowers, lanterns, and candles to let the outdoors in. These touches gave the rustic-themed wedding celebration a whimsical and romantic feel. Everything felt so serene and refreshing from the chapel until the enchanting garden-inspired reception.
Weddings also mean thanksgiving. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for everyone who took the time to celebrate with us; and Team Ash and Muff surely had a unique way of expressing it- Monogram it! We decided to surprise and express our love to friends and family by giving them not just any gifts, but custom-made gifts. Scroll through the photos and fall in love because once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale. Enjoy!
Our godparents each received a craftsman’s bag with leather piping. Each craftsman bag was monogrammed with the initials of our godparents. This craftsman bag is an improvement of our existing plain craftsman bag. We’ve added colored leather piping while maintaining the detachable long strap, spacious design and preferred monogram style.
Our secondary sponsors received this special monogrammed pouch. Inside this monogrammed pouch is a blanket with our wedding emblem and the initials of our secondary sponsors. The blanket is made of durable, soft, and the comfiest sweatshirt fabric.
We took monogramming to the next level. We gave our bridesmaids laundry totes each with their own printed caricature. However, this was exclusively made for our wedding and is not available in our list of products.
We also gave our bridesmaids a pouch to keep everyday essentials. The best thing about this pouch is that it has several compartments making it ideal for travel. The compartments are also made of thick and durable plastic.
All flower girls receive their own glitter totes!
Our guests received this unique monogrammed keychain. The keychain is made from durable canvas, intricately stitched for design and durability and accented with vintage inspired trinkets
Aside from our wedding favors, our reception set-up had some monogrammed items as well.
