This is the outdoor gazebo of Waterfront Insular Hotel in Davao City where outdoor wedding is usually held. It is one of the favorite wedding venues in Davao.
Two of my friends exchanged vows here on the same year and every time I am attending a wedding here, I am visualizing myself walking down the aisle. Been dreaming of an outdoor wedding before but it did happen (so maybe it could happen in my next life).
I don’t know what’s with outdoor gazebos that when I see one, I feel nostalgic. Gazebos for me is a perfect venue for wedding ceremony and intimate, romantic candle-light dinner with all the flowers and a violinist or saxophonist on the side. Oh, I start daydreaming again! I actually wanted to have a gazebo at home. Only, we don’t have space for it. I love outdoor gazebo in the yard surrounded with flowering plants or herbs. It would be a nice place to stay and relax on one fine day, read a book, or even work! So it would an outdoor office?LOL. So when I see a house with outdoor gazebo, I silently wish I could stay longer there or wish that we can have a gazebo at home. It’s possible, I know. If only we have a larger yard.

Wedding month in a couple of months so people in the wedding industry are now busy preparing for their client’s wedding. Couples are now busy with the wedding preparations while others who can afford to get a wedding planner and coordinator can just sit back and relax – just let their money do the work.haha.
I could very well remember my own wedding preparations. It caused me and Ace a lot of stress but it was all worth it. Months before the wedding, I was already searching for bridal wedding invitations ideas in the internet. I kept on looking for nice yet affordable wedding invitations and other wedding details that I could do myself. I am so fond of DIY things and I wanted to have a personalized invites so I searched high and low. Gladly, I found a site for unique wedding invitations and got some ideas from their beautiful, unique invites. After finalizing what we both want for our wedding invitation, I was then in the market for materials. Luckily, I was scheduled to visit Manila for an official business trip so I was able to drag one of my colleagues to Divisoria and scout for the materials that I need for my DIY wedding invitation.
Yes, I did everything from the layout of the invites, printing, to making the personalized “envelope” and other details of the invite. It caused me some sleepless nights to finish everything on time and be able to send out to our family, relatives, and friends. With the help of Ace, we were able to send out invitations on our target date. Thanks to DIY ideas, we were able to save a few thousand bucks for our invitations!

For three weeks in a row, I am posting wedding related photos for Wednesday Whites – straight out of the camera. I, nor my husband aren’t wedding photographers. It just so happened that we’ve been invited to weddings the past years. But this photo I am sharing is not taken from a wedding of a friend or relative.
We have no idea whose bridal car that is, hubby took a photo of it while we are riding a “kalesa” (horse-drawn carriage) touring around Intramuros, Manila last year. The vintage white car caught my attention and hubby was quick to aim the camera. It was a quick snapshot. No time for taking a good angle and recomposing the shot. But I like how part of the Manila Cathedral was captured in the background.
Do you have a photo of something white? Share it with us in Wednesday Whites! Please click on the badge below to visit Mommy Raya’s blog.
