The first time I entered the gate of Sandari I could hear and feel my heart beat and as we drove to wide street, my eyes open wide when I saw the venue-Club Ananda, and I said to my then husband to be, what to do you think? This place looked like an Aztec inspired structure and it is very far from our church so what do you do think? He said he like it! Okay, then I thought this place must be a new venue that our guests will go to so why not. Then I check the following of course to convince myself to like it.
1. It is a 30 minutes drive from our Church (Iglesia ni Cristo Tagaytay) San Jose Tagaytay, what will be the traffic like?
2. Since our theme is vintage-modern, how can we transform the venue?
3. Where can we stay before the wedding considering that we will have a separate venue for the ceremony and reception?
As I answer the questions, I realize that the place is really magnificent on our second visit, It is like a structure built to put modern civilization on a paradise. It is like a building pictured on Children’s book or like a Kingdom erected inside a “Sitio” I just love the fact that the Batulao Mountain will become a real backdrop thus our guests will love it.
Considering the logistics, we figured that traffic flow will not be a problem since our wedding falls on Friday and off-peak and my fiancé found the best preparation place before the wedding which is near our Church. So everything is according to plan!
And so I fell in love with the place, which is very important I think! Yes, I thought so, because if there are glitches on your wedding whether minor or major you will not feel bad or sad because there is something that you are ok with.
The picture will tell you how impalpable it looks like.
