A Church Wedding in Bohol with Hints of Gray and Beige

I’ll never grow tired of beach weddings and shoots. I think it’s because they always make me feel as if I have my toes in the sand, breathing in the fresh, salty air, rejuvenating my body and soul… beach therapy is real, ladies. And yes, JP and Karen’s beach wedding gave me just that. It’s nice how they tied the knot in the church, but had their post-ceremony shoot at the beach! I loved how they both went barefoot in the sand too–it certainly added to the charm and rawness of it all. The subtle hipster, vintage vibe their wedding is giving off is something I’m really liking too. Now take a peek into this wedding by browsing through Thinking Chair Studios‘ pretty snaps!

This Couple Fell in Love All Over Again Against the Vast New Zealand Sky

It was late afternoon when Charles and Nikki landed in Auckland, New Zealand for an epic five-day engagement shoot. Everyone was so excited for this beautiful adventure that an early morning flight to Christchurch, a three-hour drive to Lake Tekapo, and occasional shooting stops along Highway 79 (while jet lagged!) seemed to be an easy feat. I mean, how can you not feel in love with a backdrop like this! And just when they thought that it couldn’t get any better, the cosmic gods started to brag with a beautiful display of the Milky Way against the dark winter sky. We’re so lucky to witness these magical moments through the lens of Redsheep Photo Cinema. Scroll on and join us as we get goosebumps from this breathtaking set!

See These Bridesmaids’ Lovely Mismatched Dresses in This Sweet Tagaytay Wedding!

While there’s no maximum number for your entourage, I counted twelve ladies and twelve gents in Kristian and Roxy’s wedding in Angelfields and they all looked stunning. And speaking of the entourage, you’ll notice that the ladies are wearing different outfits in different colors and textures–definitely something you can pick up from this couple. Plus, I think it makes it easier on you too. Just give a general color scheme and let your bridesmaids take care of the rest. Of course, the bride’s Kitty Chen Couture dress has got to be mentioned. The sweetheart neckline, lace, and embroidery gave off such a sweet and elegant vibe at the same time. There’s plenty more inspo to be had in this wedding from Marielle Penafiel, so keep on scrolling!

8 Fabrics You Can Use For Your Bridesmaids’ Dresses

Choosing your bridesmaids, picking out their dresses, and generally having their support during your planning is one of the highlights of wedding planning. But even though it can be fun, it can also be a bit daunting at times to choose what they will wear. In the eight years that I have seen weddings day in and day out, plus my eternal love for evening wear, I found myself being a regular visitor of fabric stores in Manila. (Even my friends would normally ask me for fabric advice before their wedding!) But today, I’m giving you a rundown on some fabrics you can use for your bride tribe (or even as a general reference for evening wear!).

P.S. – Here’s a fun tip and personal preference of mine: You can actually mix and match these fabrics while still following your color scheme. Trust me, this will add texture and chicness to your whole bridal gang!
