What is better than having a drop-dead gorgeous wedding? Let me see… how about having two of them? Yup, that’s right! Most brides describe their wedding day as a blissful blur, leading to the the desire of having a do-over (yes, yes, I am one of those brides!). But Antoine and Shermaine hit the jackpot! The groom being Belgian and the bride being Filipina, dilemma dilemma on the wedding venue right? Wrong! Two bouquets, two wedding dresses and two drool-worthy celebrations–who wouldn’t say no to that?
Terrific trivia: Shermaine’s mom made her dresses for both weddings. I love how this dress has hints of blue, while that accent gold belt is probably one of my favorite details in this amazing affair. Dainty, ethereal and very midsummer night’s dream-ish! Good job MOB!
How cute is it that the cupcakes had a Belgian-Filipino mix? Beer and gumamela anyone?
Here are some snippets of Antoine and Shermaine’s Belgium wedding. Her coordinator, Ernest Pascual (who is also a supplier frequently featured in B&B), sent me these pictures. He fondly shares:
The first time Shermaine called me up, I instantly knew that I would plan her wedding. When I saw the pictures from her Belgium wedding, I was like, “I had to top what she had in Belgium for the wedding she will have in Manila.” And when she said (during her thank you speech), “Ernest, thank you for giving us a wedding which is more than what we expected” I knew I nailed it and kept my promise that she would have a beautiful Manila wedding.
Cheers A and S! Here’s to double goodness!
