When East meets West, something unique is brewed... and that exactly, is what we experienced during the Wedding Reception of Bram and Kaye.

Kaye is Filipina and Bram is Dutch.
Their field is Information Technology.
Their common interest (or can I say passion?) is Star Trek.
Their wedding reception theme is Star Trek and expanded to the Sci-Fi (Science Fiction) motif.

"Whhhhaaaaattttt?", "Star Trek? Sci-Fi? Anime?"... 
"Reeeeaaaalllyyyy?"... we will be in costumes????...
were the cries of the conservative Filipino relatives!
(In my mind, this might be better option than going to the mall in a principal sponsor's gown!)

In Star Trek: This is the mission of the original Starship Enterprise:

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. 
Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

With this, Sci-Fi theme,  they actually adhered to the mission: TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE!

Nobody could ever imagine how this would go about, but it turned out to be a PARRRTTTTTYYYY!!!!!

So, I would like to share this with you.
Venue: Laguna Garden Cafe, Cafe Laguna, Ayala Center

It was intended to be in the mall, so the guests waiting for the reception can enjoy strolling in the mall.


This is just a very small part of the meal.
I didn't go anymore to the buffet table.
And of course, lechon is present.

The colorful and interesting guests were enough to surprise (and even shock!) the waiters and other mall goers.

The Surprise.

a surprise indeed!

The Emcees (Masters of Ceremony) and Program organizers.
We thank them for a wonderful program during the reception and also during the shower-stag party, a day before!

The Crowd.
the seniors!
the younger generation

Even when others were not in costumes, they were as happy.

This is really one of the most unique and happiest wedding celebrations I (and I know, we!) attended!

... we boldly went where no man has done before...

And I don't think it will be replicated in the near future!!

We pray for the best for Bram and Kaye!!!

  1. Very accommodating. The food is quite good. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. Good for everyone especially Filipinos to taste their own Filipino Dish.

  2. This is one of the best restaurants here in Cebu.

  3. One of the best but I don’t think it as the best.

  4. The wedding is unique, new gimmick and I found it awesome. Thanks! Looking for wedding receptions venues? visit Catering Services in Laguna
