Nuestra Señora de Gracia Parish

We chose this church first of all because we wanted the venue of our wedding to be accessible to all - and Makati is a happy compromise to all our friends and family who are coming from all over the metro, the provinces and even abroad :)

Sara's friend and officemate Alma, actually gave us the idea about this church. Our original choice was Sanctuario de San Antonio in Forbes, but even as early as September last year, the church was fully booked already for August 8. The day Sara panicked and was fantically calling up churches in Makati for an alternative, Alma searched online for this church that she said was one of the oldest churches in Makati.

The photos over the internet were lovely so Sara immediately called to book our wedding ceremony there, for the 2pm slot (the only remaining slots were 8am and 2pm). A few dayd after the booking, we went to go see the church and we realized how it was such a blessing in disguise that Sanctuario de San Antonio was fully booked already.

Here's a link to an online article about the church, for more information :)

Trivia: They say this church has been a setting for some local movies and TV series'. I remember the movie with Kristine Hermosa and Diether Ocampo - the wedding scene was shot here - i think its the movie that was a trilogy? And i also heard the series Lupin had some shots taken here as well.
