Our Wedding in Balai Taal Tagaytay

The super looooong wait is over! I finally have the time to share with you guys our wedding photos. Nakadalawang babies na tsaka lang magpopost. Hahaha. I’ve noticed some comments on my previous article asking for the actual wedding review so here it goes.


When we booked Balai Taal as our wedding venue, we knew this was the place God has intended us to get married. Everything seemed smooth from inquiries up to the Big day. If you’ve read my previous post about the venues hunting, you knew that Balai Taal was our first choice from the very beginning.

It was loved at first sight.  The view was majestic. I cannot find the right words to describe the place. It’s just that I guess my write ups won’t do them justice. I’d love to let the photos tell the story.

Our rustic invitation nicely printed by Folk Street Co. My husband is also a designer. The man behind the idea and design of our wedding invites, so if you’re looking for professional logos, print ads, web sites and any marketing collateral, just email: jeimysantillana@gmail.com (plug ko lang charot)



The beautiful bride (acheche) and the maswerteng groom. Bwahahahah


The parental guidances (hahahahha). Love them to bits! Infairness sa nanay ko muntik na nya kong makabog dito. Kamuntikan lang naman.

My lifetime besties <3

The bridesmaids. (Jane, Arvi, Rachel, Gladys, Faye, Aenjelle) in random order. Kayo na lang mag decide who’s who.

The minions este groomsmen


Again, the beautiful bride. (Ahahaha! Kotang kota na ko sa pagka beautiful dito)

The wedding ceremony.

When you see it….

Hahahahahah so late na namin narealize na pati si groom sinakluban ng veil ni abay. *slow clap three times*

Yehesss naman! Kitang kita naman sino ang patay na patay. Wahahahahah

Pamilya Ko

Pamilya Nya. Na pamilya ko na rin <3

With the Pastor, ninongs and ninangs.

We’re officially married! YAY!!



The beautiful dinner set up by K by Cunanan.

Overall, Balai Taal

Even with the best view of Taal lake, I would give it’s location a 4, given that it is near rotunda and is accessible. The missing point is because of Tagaytay traffic jams these days.

Perfect 5! Package includes 2 houses for preparation, a house with 4 bed rooms where 15 pax could stay overnight, 2 gardens which would serve as the ceremony and reception venues. I’d say sulit na sulit. What more could you ask for?

I never had a problem with communicating with Mang Nelson. He was so accommodating and easy to talk with. He would reply fast via email or sms. So yeah, I give it a 5.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our wedding suppliers for making the event extra special. (Will be having a different post for it)

It was 3 years ago, but the memories are still vivid. Emotions so strong. Nostalgic. It seems like yesterday. How I wish I could turn back time and cherish this story of a lifetime longer.
