Fashion Friday: Ralph and Russo Spring/Summer 2014-2015

Posted by Janna Simpao

I don’t know about you, but I am seriously going crazy over these dresses from the Ralph and Russo Spring Summer 2014-2015 haute couture collection! The cuts are so creative and exquisite that I can’t even pinpoint which one is my favorite. Now how can you not call this art?

Designer: Ralph and Russo

Pleasantly Patriotic

Posted by Bianca

There is such a remarkable strong sense of tradition in Joseph and Joji’s lovely wedding captured by Your Ever After Studios today that it’s giving us such a full heart. It’s traditional in the sense that so many elements of this beautiful affair was done in lovely Filipiniana strokes. Truth be told, we really have such admiration for any couple who can pull off such a tricky and constricted theme. So, kudos, kudos, kudos to our featured couple for today because their exquisite affair gets two thumbs up from our now swooning B&B family!

Editorial Fest 2014: Elopement Editorial

Posted by Janna Simpao

A few weeks ago, Bride and Breakfast held its first ever Editorial Fest in Privato Hotel. With the promise of shooting three different editorials simultaneously, we wanted to be a bit more creative. Since elopements are becoming more and more popular nowadays, we thought, “Why not shoot one?”

Here are a few reasons why we think it’s pretty cool to have an elopement (wedding) or elopement shoot:

  1. An elopement is not too expensive but can be very, very pretty. Imagine being able to style your dream wedding, have a smaller and cozier affair, and have a photographer capture it for a fraction of the amount you’ll spend for a big wedding. And if you still wanna celebrate with family and friends, you can host a dessert party afterwards!
  2. An elopement shoot would mean that the couple will have their photos/video taken in their “intimate wedding” apart from the bigger wedding that we can’t seem to live without. This is a great alternative to an engagement shoot, one you can even show on you grand wedding day.

With that in mind, we knew we needed a superb team (check out our superstar supplier roster at the end of this post) to show how beautiful an elopement can be, as well as bring to life the industrial-rustic-geometric theme we have envisioned. To start off, every decor detail executed by Bluebarn was drop-dead gorgeous. The rest of the talented people behind this shoot also delivered something extraordinary and awe-inspiring. After you see this, you might just have to take us up on that suggestion to elope.

If you’re like us, you’d probably drool over all this prettiness captured by Nelwin Uy (we are still teary-eyed!) and be totally smitten over the video by Ian Cruz Films at the end of this post!
