When the groom’s mother, Olivia Limpe-Aw, a prominent figure in the publishing and the business worlds, curates her son’s wedding, you can expect nothing short of an epic celebration that will draw the country’s elite and influencers.
Brandon, the youngest son of Olivia and Benny Aw, and Meryl Christine S. Nolasco, the fourth daughter of Peter and Josephine Nolasco, sealed their four-year romance in an unforgettable ceremony. Brandon expressed, “I find your ability to tolerate me amusing because not everyone can handle someone like me. Despite our stubborn moments and highs and lows, I found my perfect companion!”
As a member of the sixth generation of the country’s oldest distillery, Destileria Limtuaco
& Co., Inc., Brandon, known as a “party animal” and national sales manager, ensured the wedding was one big party from start to end. The wedding procession at Santuario de San Antonio was a grand affair with eight pairs of godparents, 13 pairs for the entourage, and delightful bearers and flower girls.
The Grand Hyatt Hotel’s Grand Ballroom transformed into a Tuscany-inspired grand party, thanks to the creative touch of the country’s top event stylist Teddy Manuel. Bran’s
Pub, an Instagrammable rustic bar designed and built by the Destileria Limtuaco team, served signature cocktails throughout the night, and Meryl’s Café, a charming coffee cart by Fat Seed Café + Roastery, added unique touches to the celebration. Guests enjoyed the Magazine Box by Signarama and the impressive grazing table and eat-all-you-can Prifoods’
Snackers chips, while serenaded by the tunes of the Skills band and comfortably seated on picnic tables.
Jenny Lim from The Wedding and Events Company seamlessly coordinated the program, ensuring guests remained entertained throughout the evening hosted by Sam YG. The lively entrance of the entourage, surprising dance performances, and the couple’s graceful first dance to May I Have This Dance by Chance the Rapper made it an animated and delightful night. The surprise guest appearance by internet sensation Dante Gulapa brought the house down.
The open kitchen’s unveiling was the prelude to the Chinese banquet featuring a joint creation by Grand Hyatt Manila and Destileria Limtuaco, which showcased a blend of authentic Chinese culinary masterpieces and the company’s Philippine Craft Spirits
Line, resulting in a symphony of flavors that greatly impressed the guests. During dinner, guests listened to talented singer Ira Marasigan, accompanied by renowned composer/arranger Tats Faustino on the keyboard, followed by a song number by the bride’s brother-in-law, international music executive Guji Lorenzana.
The program concluded with a Same Day Edit photo and video by Pat Dy and Jason
Magbanua respectively, providing a delightful recap of the beautiful day.
More than 200 guests kept the celebration going until 1 am, as guests enjoyed the beats from the country’s top wedding DJs—Rammy Bitong, Migs Santillan, and the groom himself—alongside Hypeman MC Ron Thug, and extending the festivities until 4 am.
Here’s to a spirited night, both literally and figuratively, filled with warmth, joy, laughter, tears, great food, and lively entertainment—a truly memorable wedding party!
