The Crystal Plaza also offer a wedding garden venue that has white wooden chairs that just complete the classic theme. Not to mention the Victorian looking gazebo with pastel looking flowers and leafy vines draping around it just gives a romantic touch to it.

The wedding ceremony was simple yet classy, the reception however was extremely exceptional. It was still classic and romantic but in a more extravagant way. The venue looked like it was used as a hall in a palace were ball events were used to be held. It had the structure of a room in a palace and yet the minimalist, pastel with a classic touch look was not overpowered.

 

Their cake was a four layered cake that was classic with pastel colored roses as a design. Everything was well put together which made it a perfect classic and romantic wedding.

The couple was indeed very classy on their own kind of way. Their movements were all so elegantly executed that every picture of them taken, whether they were on the move or not, looked so perfect.

 

Every cliché posing of newly wedded couples were done and yet they made it their own which makes it not cliché at all. Of all the perfect pictures of the couple, it was their moments in front of their guest during their reception that really stood out.

During those moments, they were standing beside each other with their arms around them and fog was accumulating on their feet, which made an impact to me. It looked so classic and romantic as if the heaven went down for such lovely couple.


Wedding Venue That Felt Like Home

Each photo taken showed nothing but pure bliss. Not a single person present that day was able to remove the smile on his or her face. It was a celebration done intimately with the closest people for the bride and the groom. Their family and closest friends who were not timid to show that they too were having fun made the happiness complete. Just like, Samantha and Jonathan who were not afraid of showing their goofiness and cool dance moves.

 

 

The couple were both simple and fun in the most adorable way that you can really see in an instant that they were really a match. They were able to find a home at each other’s arms. Which is why it is not a surprise that they chose a wedding venue that also felt like home to the both of them.

One of the most important thing to remember is that no matter how homey your wedding venue is, the people around you and that person you’ll say your vow to on that day would make your wedding day feels like home.

Be United in the House of God

Marriage is a sacred sacrament and ideally must be done inside the church. It is not just a mere contract between two people who vows to love each other till death but a contract to God as well. A contract promising to make Him the center of their relationship as husband and wife. Michelle and Scott is one of the receding number of people who still prefer to do their wedding ceremony inside the church.

Why would they even think of not doing it inside the church if it’s in the Church of St. Francis Xavier. A Roman Catholic church that has great architecture that emits a touch of Vatican in it. You’ll truly feel the presence of His holiness during the entire wedding ceremony.
