The vast area of Tagaytay Highlands is home to several romantic venues suitable for dreamy wedding celebrations. The well-known Madre De Dios chapel has witnessed many an intimate wedding, and the nearby Midlands has hosted its share wedding receptions. Of course, the sprawling, picturesque outdoors is a favorite backdrop for pre-nuptial photo shoots. But perhaps among its most iconic, aspirational amenities are the log cabins.
Dotting the hills of Tagaytay Higlands, the rustic structures are reminiscent of old North America and are the only authentic log cabins in the country. Built with imported Western red cedar and impressive stone masonry, the residences are ideal for private, more intimate celebrations such as engagement parties or despedida de solteras. Here, the bride and groom may spend time with close friends and family before walking down the aisle.
The cabin's expansive lawn may also be the venue for the wedding ceremony itself, where the couple can say their "I dos" amidst the fresh air and crisp scent of pine. Or vows may be exchanged indoors, under the high-ceilinged living area where high and wide picture windows welcome the view of the countryside. The meticulously furnished residences make use of natural resources and need little or no styling to achieve an otherworldly wedding reception. The cool climate is enough to make one forget that they are but hours away from the city.
After the wedding festivities, the log cabins offer a peaceful retreat and couples can begin their honeymoon, pampered by modern amenities and utmost privacy.
Another venue that offers that same rustic feel of the log cabins is The Spa & Lodge where spa parties may be held in lieu of bridal showers, couples can enjoy massage treatments prior to or after the wedding celebrations, and a different dining experience welcomes one at the Great Room.
Whether you prefer to enjoy spacious log cabins, or well-appointed rooms at The Spa & Lodge, Tagaytay Highland's signature stunning architecture is sure to lend a unique touch to your wedding celebration.
