Balai Taal, Tagaytay

BALAI TAAL is THE PERFECT VENUE for a small intimate WEDDING!!!

Mang Nelson, the caretaker, was kind enough to show us around the place AGAIN :p
This time, we went with Zenas Pineda, my cousin's florist/stylist so she'll be able to design the place better.

This is the view from the 3rd level of House 3

A spot for Chillaxing

Garden 3 - the smallest garden among the three gardens in Balai Taal.
This is where the cocktail tables will be set-up.
