Consider me a convert. I used to imagine my wedding taking place in Ville Sommet Tagaytay or Fern Brook Gardens in Alabang. I already had everything set up in my mind, until I stepped foot at The Mango Farm.
I just fell in love with the place! It had that Ville Sommet feel, only this is nearer, with wider lawns, toll-free and more parking space. It’s also not hard to find. Just make sure you check the website for the location and landmarks if you’re not familiar with the Antipolo area.
-Take lots of photos! If you’re a nature-lover, this venue is for you! Sprawling green lawns, beautiful trees and a pond (and I thought sa Fernbrook Alabang lang ako makaka-pag photo shoot in a boat). Thank God they have one here!
-I’m impressed there’s so much space to park. They also have very helpful attendants.
-Rates begin at P57,200 for the Garden Venue (7 hours) where the ceremony or garden reception is usually held.
-The Pavilion rates begin at P70,400 (80 guests) -5 venue choices: La Carmen, Azotea Rojo, Plaza Gat Tayaw, the Sunken Garden, and the Glass Pavilion.
CATERING: K. by Cunanan
-Most of the weddings I host are catered by K. Her packages are certainly more affordable than hotels, her waitstaff are professional and very nice, the food is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and the styling doesn’t disappoint. Food choices? There are a lot! I love her taco salad, her vegetable dishes and the desserts!!!
COORDINATOR: Empire Weddings

THE VERDICT: WILL I GET MARRIED HERE? Yes! I can already imagine which places in The Mango Farm I can pose in. Pwede mag-role play ng princess and fairies dito.
TO WHOM WILL I RECOMMEND THIS? -Couples who want a garden wedding without having to travel all the way to Tagaytay.
