What is one of the most stressful things that can happen to a bride-to-be seven weeks before her wedding day? In my case, it was finding out that the beach resort my fiancé and I have arranged for as our wedding venue won’t be available for our use on our wedding day! Well, no thanks to a booking blunder made by that resort’s staff. But thank God for friends who helped us with our need for another wedding venue. We found ourselves with new arrangements with a resort which was not only beautiful in its look and feel but so was its service.
And so on our wedding day, on a cool, a bit drizzling late afternoon in November 2009, my fiance and I exchanged our vows at the beautiful Verdant Pavilion of Panglao Island Nature Resort (PINR) in Bohol, Philippines. Although no longer Bohol-based, my fiance and I had chosen to marry in our place of birth with our closest family members and loved ones in attendance. I loved the green walls of nature surrounding us during the ceremony which was held inside the Pavilion. The food was great at the reception and so was the service given to us throughout the event and in the succeeding days that my husband and I stayed on at the resort for our honeymoon.
Thanks to PINR’s management and staff, I would be able to say as a Boholana that we do not only have natural treasures in Bohol that could draw international attention and admiration but we also have a world-class resort with excellent, personalized service which we thankfully found during the most opportune time.

Congratulations! I understand Panglao is such a beauty especially its white beaches! Never been to Bohol but I should too, my ancestors were from there too 🙂 You guys looked so great!
Hi Katya Thanks for the comment. You should visit Bohol and trace up your ancestry some time. Boholanos are very relational so your relatives, I think, would be very glad to see you.
