Meg and Jun Wedding

I enjoyed shooting this wedding. Let’s simply put it at that 😀

I like to silently observe the little quirks of my dear couples. Meg & Jun made me easily infatuated with how they flirt with each other. That my friends is the way to be through out the marriage 🙂 Always fancy each other!!

More than that, it’s how true and real they are to all 🙂 The speeches their friends and family delivered we’re hilariously entertaining, that I feel I got to know them a little more. No holds barred haha

Meg, Jun and Manubear! May you make many more beautiful moments together! Thank you for making me a part of your wedding. Im blessed to have witnessed such a happy wedding! Big hug to you three!

Enjoy the photos!!

Take a trip to where the days are dreamy and the nights, dazzling. Hacienda Isabella is the perfect countryside sanctuary for solace-seekers and hopeless romantics alike.

Her distinctive taste and style is evident in every square feet of the property, making it an attractive, scenic venue for intimate gatherings, dream weddings, power team-building events, exciting events and more.

The property houses 19 villas nestled within the romantic ambiance of Cavite, proving to be the ideal setting for intimate gatherings or getaways.

RomANTIQUE: A tour of Kuh Ledesma’s Hacienda Isabella

People know her either as a pop singer or an actress, but few people know that Kuh Ledesma is also a frustrated architect. The opportunity to design her own home was a dream come true. “Yung mga frustrations ko dati, d’yan [sa Hacienda Isabella] ko nilalagay,” she told Kara David in a recent episode of the GMA-7 late-night program “Powerhouse.”

Hacienda Isabella, named after Kuh’s daughter, is located in Indang, Cavite. Kuh’s dream was only to build a small farmhouse surrounded by fruit-bearing trees, but today, Hacienda Isabella is a popular wedding venue. The compound is filled with reproduction antique furniture that Kuh designed herself.

The Charm of a Rustic Villa: Hacienda Isabella

Last Good Friday, we took a detour from our regular Tagaytay get-away.   The drive to Sampalok Lake in Laguna down to Tiaong, Quezon, for a Holy week day tour, a few years back was still fresh in my husband’s memory.  We didn’t plan a summer outing for the Holy week since we have booked our first week of June for a visit to Dumaguete and Negros.

So to cap off the month of March, we headed down Indang, Cavite to explore some hidden falls or lakes.   My uncle used to bring us to Indang when we were kids.  From time to time his then wife would bring us to the river to cool off and watch the neighboring ladies wash their clothes.  Also, far as I know, it is where he was able to amass a couple of real properties and some lands rich in trees for use as lumbers.   I remember him visiting us from Indang bringing with him sacks of santol and coconut.

It was all in proper timing, since a client of mine (from my wedding management job) asked if we knew of an event place that is not in Tagaytay but near it.  The first thing that came to my mind was Indang. Then I came upon a wedding resource website with an entry from Hacienda Isabella. So we took the kids and drove all the way to Indang, first on our list, of course is Hacienda Isabella.
