John and I originally wanted our wedding ceremony to be held at Santuario Del Sto. Crsito in San Juan because it's the church of Aquinas School where John was an alumni. Unfortunately, our wedding day was on a Monday. Santuario didn't have a Monday wedding schedule.
Many of our friends suggested big churches like Manila Cathedral but our wedding reception dinner was booked at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel that's why we wanted a church near the area for an easy travel for all our guests.
My sister in law, Manet, told us about Archbishop's Palace in Villa San Miguel. John and I checked the place and we immediately fell in love with it. The place is easy to find whether coming from North or South. The area is full of trees and plants. It's clean and has a big parking space. It's a perfect intimate wedding venue for us! Who knows, it could be yours or your friend's perfect venue too.

If on a budget, you might prefer their small, non-aircon chapel.
