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!
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:
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!
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!

Anyone who knows me well enough can tell you that if I could jet set away to ANY place in the world, I would pick the stunning isles of Greece without missing a heartbeat. It’s been on my bucket list for the longest time, and today I’ve got all the more reason to go! You see, Nice Print Photography sent over the most beautiful photos of Dane and Genelie’s destination fête, and if I’m being honest, I might be looking up flights right now. Just think… Minimalist architecture, cool waters, and a gorgeous wedding… Who wouldn’t want to transport to a dream like that?
Speechless. That’s what I was when I saw these photos of Jon and Merryl’s wedding captured by J Lucas Reyes. Having attended the wedding myself, I can say that everything was truly exquisite both in photographs and in real life. For one, the bride Merryl, being a stickler for details, made sure everything exuded understated sophistication. From the invitations, to her gown, and even to the ribbon of her bouquet… each was simple yet breathtaking. And of course, Jon, who is a photographer, was quite dapper in his navy blue tux–notice those super adorable camera cufflinks! With all these amazing elements set against the beautiful Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa we can say that we live for these kinds of beach weddings. Loveliness overflows.
