La Huerta Estate in Antipolo

This property could be the perfect venue for your dream wedding. And I mean every word in the previous sentence. La Huerta Estate in Antipolo as a wedding venue will make your journey to forever a blissful one.

About La Huerta Estate

According to their website (www.lahuertaonline.com), La Huerta means “the orchard or the garden”. Located in Brgy. San Roque, Antipolo City, this property is famous for couples who want a venue which will provide them the overlooking view of Metro Manila and the privacy they want for such intimate occasion.

La Huerta was built in 1969 as a weekend destination for Jovino and Luz Lorenzo and their children. When Jovino passed away in 1992, his daughters Malu and Patti moved to the US to study, his son Anton was then starting a family of his own, and his wife went back to live in Makati. And so the years passed and they decided to open their property to the public.

The Place

I was able to go to La Huerta for a wedding I attended in December 2010. And I can say I fell in love with the place.

The property is divided into four areas: San Jose Pavillion, San Isidro Pavillion, Casa Vieja, and Tipolo Deck.

Casa Vieja has the classic design and structure of a Spanish-colonial house. You would hardly see a modern furniture so the oldness vibe of the house was preserved.

San Jose Pavilion is an open-air patio with several white curtains that add a soft vibe to the pillars holding the roof and the floor.

The San Isidro Pavilion make another good venue for parties as its openness makes you closer to the trees around and a good view of Metro Manila.

Tipolo Deck was named as such because of the Tipolo tree which provide shade on one part of the deck. If you want to have your promise of forever under the sky, this one’s the perfect venue. And this will give you the best vista of Metro Manila and what’s around the estate.

My La Huerta Experience

There are a lot of things that I miss about La Huerta. The peacefulness of the place, the clean air, the long dining table in Casa Vieja, the long staircases situated in various parts of the property, and the memories of being there.
