Tiffany blue, the great outdoors—and the Dog of Honor

When Vienn Tionglico and Francis “Dookie” Guzman were planning their wedding, they had a clear idea of what they wanted and were determined to achieve it.
The two would meet after work to discuss the details such as the rustic but elegant theme. They then decided on a motif of mint, peach and Tiffany blue that blended seamlessly with their theme.
Although they love the beach and the great outdoors, they knew it would be easier for their guests if they held the wedding in the city. Holding it in a hotel, however, was out of the question.
“We wanted our guests to feel the charm that an outdoor party brings. When we found out that the polo field of the Manila Polo Club was available, we didn’t look anywhere else. We felt that each milestone leading to the wedding must carry a cool, casual, rustic yet elegant vibe,” Rockwell executive Vienn said.
In keeping with the theme, photos taken throughout the wedding day used natural light or were taken outdoors on the polo field with the Makati skyline in the background.
The wood accents found at both the Union Church of Manila, where the wedding ceremony was held, and the Polo Club’s main lounge tied in with the rustic theme. Strings of lights and crawling vines added texture to the main lounge where dinner was served.
The bride wore an ivory gown by Augusta Jones with a lace overlay and a scallop-edged veil while her groom wore a dove gray suit by Randy Ortiz. The gowns of her entourage came in muted tones of Tiffany blue while the male secondary sponsors donned charcoal suits with neckties of sky blue silk.
Dookie stood out in his gray suit because his best men and groomsmen wore black suits with light blue ties.
At the after-dinner party, fire dancers instead of fireworks ushered the guests outdoors where guests celebrated well into the night.
Oh, and a member of the entourage nearly stole the limelight—Orange Juice, Vienn’s Jack Russell terrier who was Dog of Honor.
