Marry Me at Marriott 2019

It is absolutely a beautiful fantasy turned into reality, the moment you walk into a Marry Me at Marriott event.  Expect no less than a feast of the senses and allow yourself to go through the motions of a beautiful wedding from beginning to end.  After all, a wedding is one of the most unforgettable and happiest moment in a couples life, and it symbolizes the start of a journey together as one.  

This year marks the 7th year of Marry Me at Marriott, and I must say that they have become the authority when it comes to weddings, whether intimate or grand.  Let me take you through this year's celebration in these photos:

As you enter the Marriott Grand Ballroom, you'll see this beautiful photo wall created by no less than Gideon Hermosa.  I absolutely loved the lights that seemed to appear like fireworks and the 3-D set up of romantic flowers, willowy leaves and candelabras.  It makes for dreamy photographs, and beautiful memories of your wedding that your guests can keep and also share on social media, and perhaps add your wedding hashtag as most couples being wed do nowadays.  

As I walk inside the ballroom, I was greeted by two breath-taking wedding cakes, which are of an absolutely different level.  These wedding cake designs aptly named, "The Bride" and "The Swing" are beautiful creations by Manila Marriott Hotel's very own Chef David Socrates.  These creations are just like works of art.  

"The Bride"

It measures 75 inches in diameter and 68 inches tall.  About 4,500 crystals were used to decorate the cake, together with 150 edible roses, 40 peonies, 1200 small flowers and all embroidery were hand-piped.  Forty kg. of sponge cake, 10 kg of the finest dark chocolate from Felchlin were used for ganache, 80 kg of hand-rolled fondant.  A total of 200 kg of powder sugar plus 2 weeks of meticulous labor to make, and 3 straight days for finishing.  The flavor used for the cake is sweet and salty chocolate ganache filling and moist chocolate sponge cake.

"The Swing"

Inspired from "The Swing", also known as "The Happy Accidents of the Swing", an 18th century oil painting by Jean-Honore Fragonard in the Wallace Collection in London.  It is considered to be one of the masterpieces of the Rococo era, and is Fragonard's best known work.  His works are characterized by an airy pastel palette, and his paintings showcase an exquisite attention to detail from the Renaissance era.  Details of the old Greek palace with baroque details on each tier.  It is accessorized with a swing on a garden tree.  The art design is so good that you forget it's part of a cake.

Little Miss Lacey creations are so adorable and pretty on the runway:

In his latest collection, Michale Leyva was inspired by clouds, making his models glide down the runway like they are floating in the sky.
