Wedding of the Year: The Pats

Patrick Filart & Patty Laurel
11-22-12

I don't mean to offend other newlyweds, but Pat & Patty's wedding is THE peg of all pegged weddings. I'm so happy that my best bud pulled off the wedding of her dreams, and more importantly, married the perfect man for her. It's been weeks since their wedding, but I had so many photos to go through (feels like I was the one who got married, haha). The fact that all the wedding details were just so picture perfect made the photo selection process even more difficult for me. Everything was a reflection of the beautiful love that they share.

PRE-WEDDINGA week before the wedding, Muffin, Patty and I took a mid-week break and had lunch in Chateau Hestia Tagaytay. Our schedules had been really busy recently, and it was great to just chill and catch up.

The weekend before the wedding, we had a bridal crafternoon for Patty in Pino. All her crafty friends came to help make wedding props.
WEDDING DAY PREPSOf course, it was a special occasion, so Patty painted her nails a pretty shade of blush! Jasmine began with Patty's makeup, while Marie started working on her hair.

Gel arrived early so that we could add the finishing touches to the cake. I actually, made 2 cake toppers, and asked Patty to choose which one she liked.
The gray watercolored one with white calligraphy won. ;P
 When everyone was ready, it was time to take photos.

Before we all went down to the garden, Pat and Patty stood behind a giant door and exchanged letters to each other. The wedding hadn't begun yet but we were all crying and giggling with kilig already!
