More L+M 12.17.10 (aka The Awesome Wedding of Win) Photos

I really couldn’t get enough of Lyra and Mark’s wedding. In my heart, it was the Best.Wedding.Evarh, so I am going to share more pictures from the event :) Also, in case Lyra and Mark decided to submit their wedding in any wedding publication, I’d like to have the yabang factor of being able to put it online first.

Take that, Martha Stewart Weddings!

The Bride

My friend Lyra The Vampire. She doesn’t age. She also doesn’t sparkle.

This is what Tyra Banks’ life worth is all about: finding the light and your angles. LOL.

Our friend Melody Biligan did Lyra’s makeup as a wedding gift.

Don’t you just love the soft vintage effect in all their photos? I like this best better than the other HD wedding photos out there. Your wedding photos should look dreamy and pretty and romantic! Not a high-res, high fashion editorial wannabe. Tingin ko lang ha.

The Groom

180220_10150129611561214_741456213_7908307_5245506_n
Lyra, what a catch! LOL. In their wedding AVP, Lyra said Mark was a jock in grade school. Obvious ba? :)

Mark is also a great graphic designer/videographer/all around nice guy. He’ll be putting up his design studio soon, so if this wedding is not testament enough of his skillz, ewan ko na lang ha!

The Gown

180803_10150129610436214_741456213_7908269_1242101_n

Lyra told me she was trying to work with an up and coming young designer before. But the plan didn’t push through, so I don’t know who she ended up with. Still, her gown looked super fab! I wouldn’t know the difference if Big Name Designer did this or not.

The Church

164128_10150129614461214_741456213_7908400_3095130_n
The ceremony was held at the church of San Antonio ng Padua in Silang, Cavite. It was quaint church with amazing interiors.

Behold

The very pretty bride about to walk down the aisle.


179677_10150129614971214_741456213_7908418_999390_n
It was Christmas season, so medyo nakatipid ng onti sa decorations. LOL.


The Entourage

179397_10150129613936214_741456213_7908386_4923239_n
Lyra and her family. Technicolor ba kamo?

I must admit, my friends and I were a bit apprehensive when Lyra said we can wear anything (then turned cocktail dresses) in any color for her wedding. I mean, in the hands of any typical Pinoy wedding, orange, fuchsia, and bubble gum blue can be disastrous! This just goes to show how Mark and Lyra have enough taste to make their wedding cute and sosyal! The cuts for the entourage’s dresses were so age-appropriate. Don’t you just love the prints and the patterns in Lyra’s mom’s dress? Or how youthful her sister looks in her blue + yellow ensemble?

168165_10150129614736214_741456213_7908414_1677942_n
Mark and his parents.
Note how all the boys in the entourage wore bow ties!
 
164177_10150129615831214_741456213_7908435_1175707_n
Everyone must be sick of Chuck Taylors for weddings right now, but how can you resist looking at these cute boys?

165704_10150129615326214_741456213_7908425_6431468_n
And girls! How cute is that headband?

I am so glad Lyra and Mark didn’t make their girls wear spag-strap gowns. Ugh. Those are so tacky! I like little girls wearing frou frou dresses and not mini versions of the bridesmaid's’ gowns.

179036_10150129616211214_741456213_7908442_3263435_n

Who would ever dare of mixing yellow with orange? Only Lyra and Mark! They chose a mustard-y shade of yellow with a darker tangerine shade of orange to make it work (Tumi-Tim Gunn lang naman ako on the side).

167245_10150129612376214_741456213_7908342_5740715_n
And of course, all the boys wore Chucks :)


The Ceremony

165744_10150129615256214_741456213_7908424_1303742_n
Guys, wala e. Late ako. Wala akong masyadong commentary.

BALITA KO UMIYAK SI LESTER LIM.

165794_10150129615946214_741456213_7908437_1284873_n
Lyra and Mark even used rainbow-colored candles instead of white ones with colored ribbons. Very creative, won’t you agree?
169011_10150129616271214_741456213_7908443_7834354_n
Mark, bakit naman parang lola yung kiss? LOL.

166649_10150129616161214_741456213_7908441_6065946_n
Aaaaand they’re married :)

The Bridal Car

180636_10150129617226214_741456213_7908459_7445994_n
It’s a Mini Cooper!

Yes, it deserves an entire section of its own. I couldn’t find a picture with the L+M plate on the back, but it’s there. It happened.

Did Mark drive the car himself after the ceremony? Galing!

Don’t they just like the lovely couple from Up?



The Reception

It took place in Ville Sommet, and with the chilly December wind, achieve na achieve ang mga porma namin!

Look at the kids turned and with eyes closed when their Teacher Lyra had a garter put on to her legs by her husband Mark. Using his teeth I might add!
This was my favorite part of the reception: Lyra dancing with her father. They danced to a LIVE string quartet version of The Beatles’ Here, There, and Everywhere.  

Nakakaiyak, guys. Diba Lester?

I already made an entry about the details that went with the wedding here, so lemme just show you all the Kodakan moments we’ve had. LOL.
We really felt that we were part of the wedding! With Melody doing makeup, Lester “Crybaby” Lim hosting, Cassie and Ken “winning” the bouquet and garter, we were really engaged! It felt like it was our wedding, too! And what a wedding to top. In the words of Melo, “Ikaw na!” Haha.

Ang ganda din ng soundtrack ng wedding nila. It’s a truly Indie Wedding minus the un-bathed guests.
