December celebrity wedding number two belongs to Chito Miranda and Neri Naig. The front man of Paroka ni Edgar and the reality show alumna, tied the knot in chilly Tagaytay yesterday and we show you the style elements we think made this wedding stand out.
Our obsession with the couple started from their prenup photos and their wedding invites. The awesome twosome wanted everyone to be part of their "road trip to love" by throwing a celebration tuned to their personalities—cool, laid-back and a hundred percent fun.
DOUBLE THE CEREMONY, DOUBLE THE FUN
Yesterday, December 14, 2014, Chito and Neri transformed Angelfields in Tagaytay into a romantic garden wedding paradise of their own.
But what do we mean by fun? Well, for starters, they got funny men Ramon Bautista and Jojo of 89.9’s Boys Night Out to officiate the ceremony. Yup, you’re not hallucinating.
#MonsignorRamonBautista and #BrotherJojoSacristan brought the element of laughter to the nuptials by wittingly officiating the garden ceremony of the bride and groom.
Any amount of rain, no matter how little the drizzle cannot ruin this garden wedding. Clearly, it was not a problem for this couple who chose not to let the weather rain on their parade.
Good thing the two already tied the knot in a civil ceremony just a day before at Vask.
For the garden ceremony, Neri enlisted the help of designer Veejay Floresca to make her the wedding gown of her dreams. “Neri wanted a simple gown so I made a very fitted tube dress with intricate lace appliqué embellishments. I used three types of lace to create textures then we created a skirt with eight layers of tulle and organza." As for Chito, Veejay shared he designed for him a simple gray wool suit.
Bambbi Fuentes on the other hand, was responsible for her hair and makeup.
It's true what they say: brides really do have that radiant glow on the day of their wedding.
It seems like simplicity is becoming a wedding trend for celebrities as seen in Neri's no-fuss pretty daisy bouquet. We spot her still wearing her showstopping engagement ring!
But the pair opted for classic wedding bands by Goldenhills Jewelry.
After a few hours of prep, the bride looked perfect from head to toe, and was ready to meet her groom down the aisle.
It was a windy day but it did add drama to her bridal walk.
BLUES AND YELLOWS
Neri's lovely bridesmaids wore matching navy blue ball skirts and royal blue wedges. Neri gave them the freedom to pick whatever top they wish to match their silky skirts with; but she made sure everyone wore the same customized wedges. (Whew! Good thing they're not stilettos! Can you imagine wearing stilettos on grass?) Gotta love a bride who cares more than just how she will look, right? Oh! And do you see what we see? Neri wore heeled oxfords instead of the usual pumps!
The principal sponsors on the other hand were dressed in sunny yellow to wash away all the rainy day blues.
A PICNIC TO REMEMBER
From the setup to the menu, #ChitoNeri stayed true to their picinic basket invitation. Complete with wooden picnic tables, checkered yellow table runners, mason jars, milk tea, and a burger food truck (!), the guests were treated to a wedding buffet like no other.
And when we say treats, we mean it quite literally. They had a candy buffet!
The couple may have a serious case of the sweet tooth as even the cake from Topcakes was covered with candy sprinkles.
#ChitoNeri2014 looked like a wedding straight out of Pinterest and everything about it is wedding peg-material. Congratulations to the newly-weds, Chito and Neri!
