Our first wedding reception and party was last Sunday. The young couple are from Marinduque ( bride) and Batangas ( groom). Both are OFW workers from Saudi Arabia. They exchanged their wedding vows at the Boac Cathedral at 10AM, followed by a grand reception of about 200 guests here at CDM. Everything went well and smooth until the program started, when low and behold there was a black out. Edwin my manager told the guests now to worry, as he will start our generator. Indeed in three minutes we had our own electric power and the wedding celebration was saved. Thanks to my diesel generator, the wedding celebration and party went well till the end of the afternoon.
I finally learned more about the other couple who requested a Garden Wedding and Reception at CDM for January 30. The bride is originally from Marinduque, but is now working and residing in the US. She happened to be the niece of our good friend Clemen Lardizabal Perez of Gasan and Manila. Clemen will be one of the sponsors in the wedding. The groom is also from Marinduque but is working in Manila. The groom has already visited Chateau Gardens but the bride just recently arrived from the US and will visit the wedding venue next week. Indeed, we are really excited about this garden wedding, since this will be the first time we will have a Garden Wedding Ceremony at CDM.
Our third wedding reception contract for this month will be on January 24. Both bride and groom are locals.
So far we have no activity for the month of February, but we have three wedding receptions scheduled already for March. I did received several inquiries for availability of the BEACH HOUSE from honeymooners in England and US for next month, however. I am glad that our 2010 year start with three activities for the Hall. It looks like CDM will have a Prosperous 2010 if this trend continues. Cheers to All!
