See the Love Unfold in This Couple’s Modern Filipiniana Wedding

Take inspiration from the modern Filipiniana wedding of Mico and Cristina, which celebrates love and going back to their Filipino roots.

The romance and elegance that a Filipiniana-themed wedding is what makes it so special. It is, therefore, not surprising that Mico and Cristina chose this theme (but with a modern twist) for their wedding.

On June 22, this couple tied the knot after three years of being together. The wedding was held in a church in Tagaytay and their reception at Antonio’s Restaurant followed after. It was truly a moment to remember! And so, without further ado, let’s take a peek at some of the beautiful details of this couple’s intimate wedding!

The Gown and The Barong

In lieu of the traditional Filipiniana gown, the bride opted to wear a custom Martin Bautista gown. The floor-length, off-white gown had a deep-V neckline and a semi-low back. It also had a short train that was adorned with floral lace appliques that cascaded down the dress. A simple veil and a low bun hairstyle completed the bride’s modern look.

On the other hand, the dashing groom stuck with the traditional look as he donned a Barong Tagalog with black slacks.

Elegant Neutral Colors and Beautiful Décor

Mico and Cristina chose to incorporate neutral colors for their wedding, with every little detail captured by NicePrint Photo. The bridesmaids wore a beige gown, while the groomsmen also wore barongs, just like the groom. The mothers of the bride and groom wore gowns reminiscent of the traditional Baro’t Saya—with sleeves much like the alampay or the lace shawl worn over the camisa.

On the other hand, the guests were also asked to wear neutral tones, with the ladies in gowns of varying shades of brown and the men in white barongs.

For the décor, the couple chose beautiful and minimal decoration for both the church and reception. White flowers embellished the pristine aisle in the church. White baby’s breath and roses with candles in glass candleholders decorated the tables in the reception as well.

And to complete the setup of their reception, a showstopper piece made its appearance. This stunning tiered cake was designed and made by the mother of the bride through her business, Dessert by Joshua.

Mico and Cristina: Wedding Highlights

In his wedding vows, Mico said that Cristina taught her how love is “a constant and lasting commitment that knows no bounds and a complete detachment from pride. It is forgiving even when unwarranted, understanding with no rhyme or reason, deliberate without reward, and enduring especially in trying times.”

Truly, this night was a reminder of love in its truest form for everyone who witnessed it. Congratulations and best wishes, Mico and Cristina!
