A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event for couples, we know that. If you’re getting wed soon, Rule No. 1 is to leave your special moment to the experts. No second-guessing your suppliers because they could make o break the occasion. And if you’re on a budget, there are still wedding providers who are both affordable and can carry out your wedding reception perfectly because they have the experience and credentials to go with it.
This blog can very well vouch for What’s Cookin Kitchenette as a caterer and La Huerta Estate in Antipolo as wedding venue because we tried their services recently for a food tasting. For as low as P120,000, one can have a full reception for 150 persons (or just P800 per person.) Read at the end of this post for the package inclusions 🙂
Here’s a sample set-up for couple’s table and stage by What’s Cookin Kitchenette ….
And here’s a lovely set-up option for the presidential table….
What’s Cookin’ Kitchenette, Catering Services & Bakeshop owned by Ms. Diana Ang-Uy has more than 20 years of experience in the food service industry. The company operates in 5 major locations even outside Metro Manila and have a long client list, from the private sector to government. Most important, they have the culinary expertise in traditional and contemporary Filipino, Asian, European and other international dishes. We found out that the best thing about this caterer are their cakes. And rightly so, some of their creations like the eclair, Vienna wafers and mango cake have made it to Inquirer’s Best Desserts!
About La Huerta Estate as a wedding venue, the host and owner Anton Lorenzo noted that the large expanse of La Huerta is “for rent as whole that includes these spots –
1. San Jose Pavilion – it spreads into an open-air patio setting that continues up into the grand staircase leading up to Casa Vieja, an old world style home perfect for social events both large and small.
2. San Isidro Pavilion – it is flanked by the soothing sound of a waterfall and boasts of a spectacular view of the Metro Manila skyline.
3. Tipolo Garden Deck – This has an unbeatable view of the Metro Manila skyline. The ideal site for ceremonies, exchange vows with the setting sun as your background while lush vegetation surrounds the guests for that true garden wedding atmosphere.? The deck extends to the azotea of the old ancestral home and provides the perfect setting for lively conversation over high tea or cocktails.
4. A Bridal Lounge is part of the package.
