Even before the Taal Volcano eruption and the pandemic of 2020, Ian and Erika decided to have an intimate wedding in Tagaytay with only their immediate family and a couple of friends.
From a big wedding planned to be held by the beach at Batangas, Ian and Erika decided to move their wedding a year later than planned. With only 20 guests in their guest list, we recommended this beautiful minimalist house in Tagaytay called Raffi's Way.
The house is simple with white walls, curved corners, earth tone accent hues. Perfect for a toned down wedding that Ian and Erika had planned. Highlighted more by the beautiful shots of Don Tapan Photography as seen in these photos.
To add a pop of color, Erika chose to have red and pink roses for her flowers courtesy of Estrella's House Of Flowers.
With only a few months to prepare, no detail was left out. Everything was carefully curated to make their dream wedding come to life.
From the white chairs to be used in the roof top ceremony to the rustic tablescape for the garden dinner. Everything was picture perfect. Thank you to the beautiful tables and chairs rented from Forrent.
The rooftop ceremony with all white chairs on white floors and cloud for backdrop is nothing less than heavenly and serene.
The dinner was set in the garden with wooden tables and chairs from Forrent, a total change from the classic white of the ceremony. String lights by Artuz 101 made the dinner feel like you are really dining under the stars.

We did not find only beauty in the decor and the place, but we also found it and so much more from Ian and Erika, and their family and friends. Emotions were on high and love was overflowing all throughout the day. No eyes were dry and faces were all smiles. We have never felt so much love in so few and so intimate an event.
