THE WEDDING GALA AT CITY OF DREAMS MANILA
January 04, 2019 – City of Dreams Manila gathered together the country’s sought-after wedding experts including renowned fashion designer Francis Libiran; Feng
Shui Master Joseph Chau; top wedding stylists Gideon Hermosa, Michael Ruiz, and Teddy Manuel; and the luxury integrated resort’s event planners, food & beverage and culinary team for “Dream Weddings: A Wedding Gala by City of Dreams.” Directed by leading event director Robby Carmona, the gala showcases how soon-to-be wed couples can experience dreamcome-true weddings at the grand ballroom.
The elegant grand ballroom was adorned with blush-themed set-up for this by-invitationonly gala which highlighted a bespoke bridal collection of celebrated A-list fashion designer Libiran, whose creations are sought after by both local and international celebrities and known fashion enthusiasts. In lieu of a usual fashion catwalk, Carmona has conceptualized a huge tiered cake-like stage with ornately designed gazebo, setting the theatrical stage for the bridal fashion show, and a contemporary dance performance about love and union.
The event also showcased sumptuous creations from City of Dreams Manila’s banquet and signature restaurants with the chefs de cuisine of Crystal Dragon, Nobu, and The Tasting Room and executive chefs who offered guests a taste of their respective specialties. Each restaurant feature was expertly curated and styled in exquisite table set-ups by Hermosa, Manuel, and Ruiz who have made a mark in the industry with their exceptionally tasteful and innovative take on events styling.
A primary figure in Chinese geomancy with decades of practice under his belt, Feng Shui Master Joseph Chau provided invited couples with tips on how to add harmony in their married life. TV event host and lifestyle blogger Janeena Chan hosted the wedding gala.
A fitting venue for an event that celebrates love, romance, and life-long partnerships, City of Dreams Manila’s grand ballroom features an
expansive floor space crowned by noticeably exquisite ceiling glass installations and mood-setting lucent lighting, evoking a sense of utmost luxury and elegance.
With a spacious seating capacity of up to 600 for a banquet and up to 900 for theater-style seating matched with the expertise of an exceptional team of event planners and thoughtful staff who ensure a personalized, seamless, and memorable experience, dream-come-true celebrations are made possible at this opulent venue.
