If this is your first time in my site, welcome! Chateau Du Mer is a beach resort with a beach house and conference Hall. The beach house could now accommodate 10 guests, six in the main floor and four in the first floor( air conditioned room). In addition, you can now reserve your vacation dates ahead and pay the rental fees via PayPal. I hope to see you soon in Marinduque- Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines. The photo above was taken during our first Garden Wedding ceremony at The Chateau Du Mer Gardens. You can now read the national and international news in this blog at the right side bar. I have also posted my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own, but I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights!

Wedding Preparation at Chateau Du Mer

The Beach House

The bride from Southern California arrived yesterday and informed us specifically the venue for her wedding ceremony. It will be at the foot of the Japanese simulated bamboo bridge under a giant balete tree over looking the ocean and the beach house. The entourage (plus six couples of sponsors) will march from the spiral staircase of the beach house and then cross the bridge. The bride has hired a decorator and I am looking forward for the transformation of the bridge into a wedding altar. I am very excited since this is a historic event at CDM. For the last two years, we have hosted more than 50 wedding receptions at the hall, but this will be the first wedding ceremony at the resort. I hired two extra helpers to clean the creek, mowed, paint and scrubbed the bridge floor and also constructed a cement picnic table and bench in the area. The park bench will be topped with tiles and decor from our travels in US. There will be a small tent in the sorounding area to accommodate around 200 guests. I will post pictures of the wedding ceremony and reception soon.

News from Chateau Du Mer This Week

Center Stage for the Bride and Groom
The Red Carpet Runner

Our first wedding reception and party was last Sunday. The young couple are from Marinduque ( bride) and Batangas ( groom). Both are OFW workers from Saudi Arabia. They exchanged their wedding vows at the Boac Cathedral at 10AM, followed by a grand reception of about 200 guests here at CDM. Everything went well and smooth until the program started, when low and behold there was a black out. Edwin my manager told the guests now to worry, as he will start our generator. Indeed in three minutes we had our own electric power and the wedding celebration was saved. Thanks to my diesel generator, the wedding celebration and party went well till the end of the afternoon.

I finally learned more about the other couple who requested a Garden Wedding and Reception at CDM for January 30. The bride is originally from Marinduque, but is now working and residing in the US. She happened to be the niece of our good friend Clemen Lardizabal Perez of Gasan and Manila. Clemen will be one of the sponsors in the wedding. The groom is also from Marinduque but is working in Manila. The groom has already visited Chateau Gardens but the bride just recently arrived from the US and will visit the wedding venue next week. Indeed, we are really excited about this garden wedding, since this will be the first time we will have a Garden Wedding Ceremony at CDM.

Our third wedding reception contract for this month will be on January 24. Both bride and groom are locals.

So far we have no activity for the month of February, but we have three wedding receptions scheduled already for March. I did received several inquiries for availability of the BEACH HOUSE from honeymooners in England and US for next month, however. I am glad that our 2010 year start with three activities for the Hall. It looks like CDM will have a Prosperous 2010 if this trend continues. Cheers to All!

Garden Wedding at Chateau Du Mer

Stage of CDM Hall
My "Gardening by Mouth" has finally paid off. Today, I received a request from a couple who had a contract to use the Hall for their wedding reception at the end of this month. However, I was surprised but delighted that they requested to have the wedding ceremony in the Gardens of CDM, instead of our local church in downtown Boac. I am indeed flattered of this request, since it validated my perception that the Gardens of CDM is beautiful and romantic enough site for a wedding ceremony. The couple wanted the cermony at the foot of the Japanese Bridge with the ocean as the background. If the ceremony is during sunset time, I guarantee them, it will be indeed a romantic time for their wedding ceremony. Hopefully, it does not rain that day. The blooming bougainvillas, Hibiscus and Euphorbias will add ambience to the wedding site. I am hoping that the weather this coming Jan 30 will be as cool, dry and sunny as today's weather here in Marinduque.

Macrine and I are so happy , we are here in Marinduque right now, since we have heard of the winter woes of residents of US, Europe, Canada and Northern China and Japan. Even my neighbors and friends in Northern California have also complained about the wintry woes in our neighborhood.

Anyway, for details about the Gardens of Chateau Du Mer, visit my site at
