Masked Away

Sharing a love for Wes Anderson’s film Moonrise Kingdom, this couple decided to relive their own New Penzance adventure–with a twist! While most couples would never consider wearing masks or hiding their faces in a prenup shoot, Gen and Bob did. Boy, did it turn out well! With the amazing creative shots of Pleiocene Pictures, this shoot is a total trend-setter! Scroll down and see for yourself!

Fashion Friday: Ines Di Santo Spring/Summer 2015

For some reason, this collection by Ines Di Santo reminds me of a night sky full of stars. And, no, it’s not just because of the blue background. I think it may be the intricate design of each gown. It is simply beaded to perfection and looks undeniably luminous. Each gown looks related to one another but still holds its own uniqueness. This collection is beautiful, and there is just no denying it. Be careful as you look through each gown though, you may not be able to take your eyes off of it!

Short and Simple

Who doesn’t like a love story that’s simple and straight to the point? Tony and Rozette’s pre-wedding shoot definitely left us awestruck and full of butterflies in our stomachs. All the sweet touches and soft kisses paired with loving stares and uncontrolled laughter was more than enough for this couple to be able to share their story to the world. No set-up, styling, or poses. This was all about their feelings for each other at their most comfortable states and Jim Vondruska was able to capture each candid moment perfectly. Less is certainly more for this couple!

Wedding Tips Every Bride-to-be Needs To Know

For all you recently engaged gals, or even just future brides-to-be (it’s never too early to start planning, right?), we have a little treat for you today!

We all know  planning a wedding can be all kinds of stressful. So we asked some of our previous celebrity B&B brides on what their best wedding tips are for brides-to-be out there and here’s a rundown of those!

Bianca Gonzalez-Intal

  • My brother gave me the best advice before planning: “Don’t stress yourselves about ‘magtatampo si ganito o si ganyan’ It is your wedding, whatever you two want, that is what you do. BEST ADVICE EVER.

  • After all the planning and hard work, remember that it’s not about the wedding but the marriage. Yes, we want everything to be all pretty and perfect but come the big day, sit back, relax and enjoy the beginning of forever.
  • As fun as it is to do D.I.Y. or a self-planned wedding, best to always hire help–unless your guest list is like 100 below. You don’t want to keep thinking about the details as you walk down the aisle. Even just an on-the-day planner would help.

  • Make a timeline. You’ll be surprised how one year of planning for me flew by so fast. Better to get things done early
  • On your wedding day, put your worries and stress aside and enjoy and cherish every single moment. Not everything will be perfect but remember this day is about you and marrying the love of your life.
  • Also, try not to drink alcohol until the end of the program.

  • Make sure you order room service or eat before the ceremony starts because chances are you won’t be able to eat at the reception because of excitement, anxiousness, and even because of program duties. I remember we had such an amazing buffet at our wedding but I never really got to enjoy it!
  • Make sure that the friend/s you choose as your maid of honor and bridesmaids are on top of everything you need. That way if there’s a problem or something that needs to be fixed you won’t have to worry about it. Fantastic bridesmaids and a kick-ass maid of honour will never let their bride stress out! Haha!
  • Make sure you involve your husband in the decision making, after all it is not just YOUR wedding day but also your husband’s too. Take it as a kind of mini practice session for when you actually are married, so you have nice a blend of both you and him! My husband was super hands on when we were planning our wedding, which made the planning a more stress-free one for me. Teamwork is everything!
  • Book your suppliers early because what a lot brides don’t know is that the good ones are always already taken and are booked six months to two years in advance.

In La La Love

Dean and Arianne’s engagement shoot by Paopao Sanchez is a combination of fun and charming. Although the venues are lovely and Arianne’s choice of gowns are certainly beautiful, what makes the couple’s e-sesh exceptional is their evident love for each other. Dean’s consistent loving stare and Arianne’s continual sweet hold has me delighted and giddy. Look at the complete gallery of the loving couple’s e-sesh, and you’ll be swooning yourself!
