Scrapbook: Weddings with a View to Forever

Published

One important aspect of a wedding celebration is the photography that will capture the joy of the couple as they start their journey to forever. This is why it is important to choose a backdrop that will capture moments that will become memories.

Destination weddings have become a trend these days, because they offer a change of scenery, far removed from the urban vibe of the city. A top criteria for choosing a location is that it will highlight the beauty of nature to add to the romantic feel of the special occasion. One of the challenges of a destination wedding is that it usually involves just an intimate guest list, because the cost of bringing in the entire wedding party to an exclusive resort can become quite prohibitive. The good news is that couples need not go too far from Metro Manila to have a wedding that is close to nature.

Aside from the lavish accommodations with a Thai-inspired theme, Oriental Luxury Suites in Tagaytay offers an events venue that has a breathtaking view of Taal Lake and the rolling emerald hills surrounding it.

Each window in the venue, along with our balcony offers an unobstructed view of Taal.”

    She shares having done a proposal request for a couple that resulted in romantic photos of their special moment. “We really try our best to accommodate our guests’ requests because we want them to experience our brand of personalized hospitality that differentiates us from the bigger hotels in the area,” she explains.
