Celebrity Wedding: Charlie Fernandez and Paula Peralejo


Image

Be inspired by this Filipiniana-themed celebrity wedding of Paula Peralejo and Charlie Fernandez 🙂  In the Philippines, being a public figure, much more for a celebrity, people will expect a big wedding party with hundreds of guests and millions spent for a big day. But in this wedding, I truly admired how the couple, led by the bride, wanted their wedding to be intimate and private. The way they planned their wedding was very inspiring and if you have read the bride’s blog, you will get a lot of tips on making one’s wedding very special and personalized without breaking your bank account.

Here are some of the interesting details about this wedding 🙂

1. The couple wanted their wedding to be Eco-friendly and no real flowers. They wanted a “no waste policy” as much as possible 🙂

Image

2. Cost-effective wedding. They got full support from their families and friends and they spent on suppliers who, according to bride, “supported their requirements”

3. Plant as souvenirs that the groom’s mom planted herself  (basil, ashitava, and cilantro)

4.  Some of the materials that they used for their DIYs were made from existing materials that they already have at home such as jute sacks the groom got from his soy business, the groom’s  mom’s hurricane lamps, and scrap fabrics from the bride’s friend’s clothing factory

5. Centerpiece. Hurricane lamps placed on palayok filled with coffee beans. The coffee beans were then placed inside the jute sacks with buttons so they can bring it home and use as fertilizer for the plant souvenirs.

~Made with Love: Jon Marc & Sonjel Wedding~

A very special Monday feature today is the wedding of the two special people in my life. I’m truly honored to be a part of this union. Though there were a lot of pressure on me being their wedding coordinator, bridesmaid, bride’s hair and make up artist, and wedding supplier, I’m so glad everything turned out well 🙂 Whew! 🙂 Also, this wedding is extra special not only for them but also for all their friends who voluntarily helped to make their dream wedding come true. A lot of effort was made and it was such a fun planning for everyone 🙂 Both bride and groom were very hands-on with the preps and it’s so nice to see that the people who helped with the planning are those who have witnessed their love story from the very beginning. 🙂 So everyone, please your eyes as you see the lovely wedding photos taken by the couple’s friends Renn Rementilla of Walls and Frames, Bong Llagas of Purple Rose Studios, Darwin Lucena of DarLucena Photography, Paul Reodique of St. Paul Photography, and Gio Diaz of Gio Diaz Photography 🙂 By the way, I have selected few of the best from each photographers because there are too many photos to post 🙂 you may click their links though, if you want to see the whole set 🙂 To Jon and Sonjel, Congratulations and Best Wishes again! 🙂
