A picture is worth a thousand words.  So here are the images I took from the Hizon’s Catering’s grand food-tasting held at the Gazebo Royale.

Beautiful greenery greets guests.

Hizon’s Food Tasting was held at the Champagne Hall.

The Champagne Hall is a huge area that should easily fit 350 to 500 guests.

It is a roofed but open-air venue.

The men’s rest room.

The bridge leading to the women’s comfort room.

The airconditioned and spacious rest room.

A venue for smaller gatherings, the Bamboo Grove.

Airconditioned and fits about 50 to 60 people.

From the Bamboo Grove to Phoenix Avenue.

RAVE: Fairly easy to locate.  Clean feel.  Gorgeous greenery.  Spacious parking.  Airconditioned bathrooms.

RANT: Venues may get quite hot.  Far from more desirable churches.

REVIEW: Beautiful option for a garden-style wedding within the metro.

The Gazebo Royale is located at 29 Visayas Ave. Ext., Quezon City.  For more information, visit their website at http://www.gazeboroyale.com.

There’s a chance that our original reception venue may not pull through as it may not fit all our guests.  So we’ve started checking out other places.

Because of its proximity to our church, it was almost natural that we pay a visit to Wack-Wack Golf and Country Club.

It was quite nice, and had the feel of a hotel.

The entrance was lovely and elegant.

And the lobby was clean and classy. (The picture’s just a little fuzzy though.)

To the right was the way to Banquet Halls A & B.

Banquet A can seat about 150 guests.

During our ocular, VS&F was setting up for what appears to be a wedding.  One concern we had about the place was the limited number of accredited caterers.  In fact, there were only two: VS&F and The Plaza.

There was a set stage and space for a dance floor.  The floor may be rented free of charge from the club.

Banquet B was a smaller hall that may be used as an extension to A.  It can fit about a hundred more guests.

Banquet B has a balcony of sorts overlooking the greens.

At the side, you can see the parking lot and the pool…

… and a nice cityscape.

RAVE: Nice alternative to a hotel. 5-star ambiance at a reasonable price.  Gorgeous Cityscape. Close proximity to our chosen church.

RANT: Very limited choices in caterers.  Carpet had a slight musty smell.

REVIEW: All in all, this is definitely a place we’re seriously considering.
