Celebrating Milestones: A Look Back On Isabel Lagdameo's Despedida De Soltera
The Lagdameos hosted an intimate despedida de soltera with an abundance of love.
Newlyweds Isabel and Brendan Murphy first met at New York University’s Stern Business School, and a few short years later, the two became a couple. They are currently based in New York City, and celebrated their wedding in December 2018 in Manila.
Tonet and Linda Lagdameo hosted a despedida de soltera to honor their daughter, Isabel, at their home, which truly houses the heart of their family. On any given day of the week, their house is never empty—the grandkids might be running in to greet their Nana and Abu, or playing piano and violin, or the Lagdameo siblings might be stopping by for a quick meal and family time. Their home always welcomes each member with open doors. There was no doubt their home would be the ideal place for welcoming the couple’s extended family, the couple’s godparents, and friends from abroad.
Approximately 100 guests attended, with a special guest: Zoey, their American Bulldog (IG: @zoey.thezozo). Guests were warmly greeted with flower arrangements on each table, beautifully arranged by Rustan’s. Margarita Fores’ Cibo di M gave guests a taste of our country’s local cuisine. The crowd’s favorite was the lechon sisig and creatively prepared halo-halo.
This night was not only a way to start the wedding weekend and welcome friends to the Philippines, but also a way to introduce them to the Lagdameo family.
