March 10, 2013 was a special day for Edwin and Janice when they tied the knot in front of the altar at Caleruega Transfiguration Chapel, Tagaytay-Nasugbu. Caleruega is one of  the most sought-after wedding ceremony venues in Tagaytay even if it’s really in Nasugbu, Batangas. The cool climate, the intimate design of the Chapel itself, and the different areas in the compound overlooking the land makes it very ideal for beautiful photographs.

And that was exactly our objective – to capture memorable moments, and take artistic photos that the couple can enjoy forever.

Let’s start with the most sought-after Tagaytay wedding venue – Caleruega Transfiguration Chapel, Tagaytay-Nasugbu.

Caleruega Tagaytay

Edwin and Janice’s motif was just right for Caleruega. The orange and flesh tones gave the rustic chapel beautiful highlights when seen from above, and even at the ground level. One thing that we noticed throughout the ceremony was that almost everyone was smiling. There were some who had tears in their eyes, but it was generally a light and bubbly mood through the entire thing (especially during the priest’s message).

And the real “show” started when Janice entered the beautiful chapel:

Did we fail to mention that there were a lot of smiles and laughter — enough to go around! Such a fun-yet-solemn ceremony. Classic Tagaytay wedding – beautiful.

Like we said, the smiles and laughter were the highlighted moments, but the message from the priest, the exchanging of vows, the placing of the rings on their fingers, and the rest of the wedding rites were as memorable and very solemn. We’re sure that Edwin and Janice won’t forget these memories.

And when the rites were done, all that was left was to sign the wedding contract, and then it was time for the group shots! And boy were there a lot of people. Did we forget to mention that Caleruega was packed! Aside from Lourdes Church, the wedding ceremony venues in Tagaytay are pretty small and intimate. Caleruega was very much the same, and we were actually surprised that more than 150 people fit inside. Edwin and Janice were very lucky to have so many family and friends who wanted to witness their blessed union.

Once we got the group shots done, it was time for us to have some alone time with the couple for the post-nuptial shots. We didn’t have much time since the ceremony took a long time, so we tried to make do with 3 areas around Caleruega. If you’ve been around the chapel, you could probably recognize where these photos were taken. If not, it’s best to see for yourself how beautiful the place is.

We particularly loved the following photos, but it’s up to the couple to choose the shot for their enlarged portrait. An overlooking photo has always been a classic for Tagaytay weddings.

After the post-nuptial shots, it was then time to head back to Chateau Royale for the reception. Oops, we think the couple got lost a bit. 😀

  1. HI! May I know how much did you spend for your wedding. I’m also planning to get married there. TIA! :)

    • Hi Zaila! I’m not sure how much reserving the Church costs nowadays, but it should be around 20-25k, I guess. We booked the Church back in 2012 at 20k for an 8am wedding. Edwin and Janice could probably tell more if they see this comment.

      But for our entire wedding, we spent roughly over 500k. :) Let us know if you want some tips or referrals on which suppliers we booked. 😀

  2. hi … super laki pala nagasatos nyo.. 500k?.. pwede po ba ako makahingi details bakit umabot sa 500k?… ty so much

    • That was for our wedding back in 2012, Liza. I’m not sure how much Edwin and Janice spent on their wedding. ^_^

      As for how it got to 500k, we had 180 guests so the catering and the venue was a big part of the cost. Then, the gowns and suits.

  3. Hi there,

    May I know how was the experience having a wedding @ 8am? I’m struggling to decide whether to agree on the AM schedule for the service. It’s the only available time on my preferred date. Appreciate your help :)

    • Hi Bev!

      The challenge really is having to wake up so early. For an 8am wedding, preparations usually start at least 5 hours before the ceremony. It’s to provide allowance for everyone to get their make-up done, and for the photos and videos to capture moments and portraits for your album, videos, and the like. But, aside from this challenge, an 8am wedding is very doable. 😀

      And similar to our preferred date, the 8am wedding was also the only wedding available so we really had no choice. Mai wasn’t able to sleep much due to the excitement. Haha!

  4. Hi there,

    I would like to ask if it is possible if it possible if you could share your suppliers? :)

    Thank you.

    Appreciate your help :)
