Burgundy Beautiful

Posted by Janna Simpao

Deep red is one of the most amazing colors out there, but truth be told, it is one of the most difficult palettes to execute for a wedding. The perfect hue, the perfect balance, and the perfect amount plays a tremendous role in making sure that despite its bold and strong shade, it still exudes softness, romance, and elegance. It’s rare to chance upon weddings who get this color beautifully right. So imagine us jumping for joy when we received this wedding from the brilliant Therese Jacinto Design, event stylist and florist of Shardul and Stephanie’s romantic red fête. The drop-dead exquisite floral decor and amazing table setting says it all. The discreet fusion of the couple’s Indian and Filipino roots were cleverly placed, resulting to simple chicness. And yes, I am totally swooning over the tasteful hues of burgundy, maroon, and gold. I’ve been familiar with Therese’s work for a couple of years now–she’s a Filipina based in San Francisco, and her taste is nothing short of impeccable! The best thing about her approach is that she tries to really work within a budget. So for our readers in the U.S., you must definitely consider working with this lady!

Photographer Rizza San Agustin also captured the moments into everlasting elegance (I love her work too)! This wedding will definitely be in our minds for a long, long time!

Desert Dreaminess

Posted by Janna Simpao

Today’s wedding is definitely something you don’t see everyday. But my, oh my, we guarantee that this will leave you swooning like crazy! Emil and Celisse tied the knot showing a different side of Las Vegas. With gold and orange popping against the neutral tones of the dessert, this whole affair is the perfect example of sprinkling glam to the drab. Pat Dy does his magic again by capturing the most inspiring and romantic snaps of this love story. We are in love!

Enveloped in Elegance

Posted by Janna Simpao

Cebu in the Philippines has always been a popular destination for weddings. I mean, how could you say no to the sun, sand, and all the breathtaking things in between. As usual, Rock Paper Scissors gives us something to swoon over this morning. Jubert and Muriel’s wedding has classic romance written all over it. And I can’t even begin to say how the bride looked utterly enchanting in the Monique Lhuillier gown. We also pretty much fell in love with the reception styling–a white tent with gorgeous chandeliers always make a perfect fit. Go ahead, see what we’re taking about!

Hello Monday, we’re ready for you!
