Party at the Pergola

Last November 26, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the annual Christmas party and W@wie Awards at The Pergola, CCP Complex.

The W@wie Awards is an annual tribute to Wedding Suppliers who have gained much love and respect from the Weddings at Work community of brides and grooms. Past Top Winners of the much-coveted award include Jason Magbanua (video), Veluz Reyes (attire), Cecilio Abad (attire) and Paul Vincent (Photography) who were all present during the 2010 W@Wie Awards.

Getting invited to the W@wie Christmas party is something that the W@wies look forward to because of the generous suppliers who sponsor the wedding-related prizes and of course, it gives them the opportunity to meet fellow W@wies they've met through the on-line community.

Thanks to Dylan of Vatel Manila (who won Top 5 in the W@wie Awards), I was able to check out the Pergola and rub elbows with the country's wedding royalties. The wedding enthusiast was truly starstruck that night, breathing the same air as the suppliers who are usually part of every Filipina bride's dream team.

If I were a bride, I could have booked all the suppliers I needed that night. :-)

My seatmates and I were stuffed with the delicious feast that Josiah's prepared. We sampled the mongolian barbecue, pasta bar and dessert buffet. I was also in cake heaven as we got a handful of treats from popular cake craftswoman, Joy San Gabriel.

Wild Cocktails, who set-up their cocktail bar, gamely offered their drink mixes, including concoctions presented in test tubes and syringes (all legal, of course). :-)
