Bride and Breakfast Turns 5: The New Look

Here it is, folks! Something we’ve been working on for months now–we are beyond excited to share with you this amazing milestone. In line with our fifth year anniversary this April 2015, we decided to launch a new and improved Bride and Breakfast. Partnering with the super talented design studio NS Design Co. and website developer Gian Aguilar, we were able to create a new look that is all about tastefulness and functionality.

Throughout our five years of blogging, we’ve gotten to know more and more about our readers, and the new logo is really all about the B&B bride. She’s sophisticated yet playful, she is strong, adventurous, and has the heart of a dreamer. And we knew the soul of the blog had to be all about her. We’ve had the wonderful privilege of working with Written Word Calligraphy, and all I can say is that she is a genius! We still get butterflies in our stomach every time we look at it–pretty, pretty, pretty! Yup, this redesign was born through a lot of sleepless nights (and some occasional tear-shedding), but it is all worth it!

As we’ve spent day after day with all of you, we found ourselves realizing the essence of Bride and Breakfast–tastefulness. The new site is cleaner, sleeker, and centered on simplicity… yup, less is more! We also made sure that you will have an easier time navigating the blog and going through our now extensive archive of posts. Stay tuned because in the coming weeks, we will be discussing how these functions will make your inspiration hunting a breeze.

And just when you think this announcement is already a huge deal for us, we have one more big reveal. Today, we get to tick off something in our bucket list–to have another branch in Asia, (drum roll please…). Bride and Breakfast Hong Kong launches today as well! I can’t even begin to explain how exciting this is for us! How cool is it that you have an option to read it in English or Chinese?!

Ok, so I am nervous, excited, happy, hyperventilating and pumped up on adrenaline… I really, really, really hope you like the new look of Bride and Breakfast! On behalf of myself and the whole team behind B&B, let’s pop some virtual champagne and celebrate!

Lace Me Up

A few days ago, we showed you a traditional wedding with a fun twist. This time, we’re giving you all candid goodness. From the church ceremony to the hotel reception, everything was just so perfectly done in this nuptial. Lloyed Valenzuela Photography was able to truly capture Michelle as a blushing bride in her white detailed lace gown and picture-perfect entourage. Bennet looked absolutely dashing in his crisp black suit, but to our surprise, it wasn’t just that! What a colorful inner lining! What a way to incorporate tradition and personalities!
