Marquis Events Place Collaborates With 3 Top Suppliers For An "En Vogue" Wedding Experience
Marquis Events Place inked a partnership with fashion designer Francis Libiran, event stylist and florist Dave Sandoval, and Christian Mark Jacobs of Naked Patisserie to provide dream weddings to couples
Weddings are made more memorable and special when the bride and groom’s wish list and preferred customized theme are met.
The wedding becomes even better, too, if they are able to get a good deal and get a one-stop shop solution for their wedding needs since it not only saves them time but energy and money as well.
Alu Suarez, Management Consultant for Sales and Marketing of Marquis Events Place and Executive Chef Carlo Castillo talked to Metro.Style about their latest offering, the En Vogue Wedding Package.
“We wanted to provide couples who are getting married a dream wedding package that gives them a memorable wedding. We have developed a special wedding package through a collaboration with designer Francis Libiran for the bridal gown and Christian Mark Jacobs of Naked Patisserie for the wedding cake. We also partnered with talented floral stylist Dave Sandoval to ensure that the wedding will have exceptional flower arrangements that will surely be appreciated by the couple, their family members and the guests," says Alu.
This latest collaboration between these wedding industry leaders proves that a beautiful and an unforgettable event can be pulled off on a budget.
The idea for En Vogue is to have a one-stop shop for all the major items in a couple's checklist. Having a Marquis representative to iron out these details with makes a huge difference in terms of convenience and practicality.
Stylish gowns and pretty cakes
For the bridal gown, Alu mentioned that Francis Libiran gives the bride 16 stunning wedding gowns to choose from. Once a choice has been made, the fit of the gown will be adjusted to tailor-fit it to the measurements of the bride-to-be.
Francis shares, “It is our first time to do a tie-up with a venue like Marquis and offer a complete solution for weddings for the bride and groom. For the design of the gowns, we made sure that it’s lightweight in order to address the request of the brides today so that they can move freely during their wedding. The material we use is not as heavy as before. We made sure that the lace are very nice and delicate."
Aside from the bridal gown, another highlight in every wedding is the cake. It is one of the focal points in the reception, so it needs to be eye-catching as well. Christian Mark Jacobs of Naked Patisserie, which has been famous for its naked cake offerings, is the top supplier behind this aspect for En Vogue. A 4-tier cake he personally designed can lend that subtle yet luxurious touch to the wedding festivities. Christian mentioned that the most requested wedding cake flavor is lemon cake.
"Marquis and I share a lot of clients already so this just happened very organically that we collaborated to provide a complete package for couples who want to get a hassle-free wedding package from our team," says Christian.
Elevated wedding dining experience
"At Marquis, we give the bride and groom their dream wedding by customizing their wedding according to the theme that they like. We also give them the freedom to choose the cuisine that they want for their wedding since we have an in-house chef, Chef Carlo, who makes different delicious dishes that are plated nicely," says Alu.
Chef Carlo shared how he works with different couples on the type of food that they want for their wedding. “We work with the bride and groom and we are flexible to accommodate their special requests too. We also offer different cuisine choices, from Filipino to Western cuisine, but we make use of French style cooking techniques," he says.
For the En Vogue Wedding Package, Marquis offers a choice of a 12-course gourmet buffet or a choice of eight artistically created set menus of four to eight courses.
