Captivating Creativity

This is not going to be your everyday pre-wedding shoot. BUT, it will certainly tickle your romantic bones! Louis and Pamela’s photos by WeRomantics are a breath of fresh air. The graphics used for the backdrop by Eureka Design Co. are just so creative and beautiful, plus, both lovebirds seemed like they were having the grandest time shooting this! We love everything about it, and you probably will too!

The Everlasting Embrace

Posted by Janna Simpao

Weddings are like poetry. They are beautiful and moving. They can stir emotions and trigger tears. But best of all, they echo everlasting emotions and profess majestic love. Richard and Sharon’s whimsical wedding captured by MangoRed has certainly reminded us that the day you say “I do” is probably one of the most amazing experiences you’ll ever have.

Have a love-filled day everyone!

The Sweet Serenade of the Sea

Simple, chic, and overflowing with sweetness, our Monday just started ten times brighter than it usually does. Gino and Trina‘s wedding is a symphony of beautiful details and amazing moments. Trina was stunning in her Julianne Syjuco gown, and with her bridesmaids in pastel, everything looked soft and charming. We’re also loving the leaf garlands the guys used–so laid back and awesome! Watercolor invite? Also loooooveed it! Everything is perfection! What can I say? Marlon Capuyan‘s photo set definitely is the apple of our eye this lovely morning.

Eternally Elegant

If you’ve followed our blog for quite some time now, or have been with us since day one (that’s about four years) then you’ll understand how today is pretty much a big deal in Bride and Breakfast history. I have been a huge fan of Jose Villa, a renowned international wedding photographer, but I never imagined having the privilege of blogging about his work. So I guess you know where this is going! Yup, for the first time ever, we have a Jose Villa wedding on B&B! Though the photographer is not from the Philippines, today’s groom is Filipino.

Darren and Yvette celebrated their big day in a pool of elegance and exquisiteness (excuse me while I put back my jaw in place). The neutral tones, hints of blacks and gold accents reflected the epitome of timeless beauty. Yvette was a vision and wore the most ravishing and uniquely understated piece by Olivia Couture. Paired with a simple and elegant high bun and shoes that are to die for, she looked beyoooond stunning! And let’s also not forget how Darren was just so suave in his J.Crew tux. The couple weren’t the only ones that dressed beautifully. It’s kind of impossible not to notice those breathtaking sequined bridesmaid dresses that gave a glamorous feel to the whole event. And if you think we’re done raving, you are mistaken. We are simply smitten over the graphic design monogram, calligraphy details, gold foiling and wax stamping used by the couple in their decorative mirror stands, table numbers, trinkets and menu. Everything just blended in harmonious happiness with the amazing architecture.

I could go on and on and on about how much I adore this wedding, but it would be a crime for me to delay your chance of being swooned to the moon and back by today’s romantic chic celebration. Yes Darren and Yvette, best day ever!

The Blossoming Love

Posted by Janna Simpao

Oh what a sweet, sweet thing it is to be in love… And Rock Paper Scissors Photography sure knows how to capture it. Allen and Junez had their pre-wedding shoot in Plantation Bay Resort in Cebu and we must say we’ve caught the love bug just by looking at that gorgeous bunch of flowers (how cute is that heart wreath!) and this adorable couple. Oh what a sweet, sweet thing it is to be in love!


The Ever Elegant

Polished and perfect, Franz and Yanee’s wedding is all about sophisticated romance. All the modern, clean, and elegant details come together, making the perfect image of timeless tastefulness. And who said anything about only the bride wearing white? We love how the bridesmaids also wore sleek white Boom Sason dresses! And for our favorite… the reception styling! Jaja Samaniego certainly captured the exquisiteness of the whole evening. Now go on and see for yourself.

Have a lovely Saturday, everyone!
