Now that we know that outdoor is always better than indoor, does that mean your wedding venue options must be a drive away from the city? We think not, especially because there is quite a good number of outdoor event venue options within the city alone–so much in fact that listing them in one article would be too long! So we are breaking them up into zones, especially now that couples are not always looking to going out of town for their intimate outdoor wedding.
Below are eight outdoor intimate wedding options north of Metro Manila, particularly Quezon City. Yes you can still get that Pinterest-worthy garden wedding with any of these venues without having to request for your loved ones to drive too far.
