Beauty and Brightness

Posted by Janna Simpao

OH-EM-GEE! You will love today’s feature for sure! Keenan and Monica’s wedding shot by MangoRed is simply beyond beautiful. Monica’s dress by Ines Di Santo is perfection, the color that dressed the bridemaids is gorgeous, and that pup is just ADORABLE. Put everything together and throw it against the picturesque sand and sea, and you’ve got yourself a dream!

Seafoam Sophistication

Posted by Janna Simpao

There is something so calming about the ocean, something so beautiful about the the sea. And once in a while, we come across a wedding that perfectly reflects the unassuming sophistication a beach affair can bring. Anthony and Marta’s Boracay wedding photographed by Jaja Samaniego is pure bliss. The pearls and orchid bouquet scream understated elegance, while the decor of starfish, shells, seahorses, and the prettiest hues of seafoam and aqua are all about the casual chic. A gorgeous couple, a fun-loving bunch of family and friends (they practically D.I.Y.’d everything with the bride and groom), and the perfect seashore is one combination we will never ever say no to.

The Sweetest Sunset

Posted by Janna Simpao

Summer is fast approaching and all these beach weddings are certainly making us dream of the sea and sand. Omar and Kyaw’s colorful celebration is one that will remind you just how awesome it really is to celebrate under the sun. With a boatful of playful details and vibrant hues that are too delightful to ignore, we knew we had to post these photos by Mark Cantalejo! Kyaw looked radiant in all her dresses (even the pink one she used for getting ready is totally gorgeous). And with the setting sun ushering them to their new life together, these two had the best day of their lives no doubt!

A Lifetime of Love

Posted by Janna Simpao

Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa is really one of my favorite wedding spots in that beautiful island. Couple it with a wedding filled with the most gorgeous details and you’ll have for yourself an affair that is perfection. Ron and Mika’s wedding is oozing with youthful chicness and a steady sophistication. We are practically drooling over the printed entourage dresses, the creative bouquets, and just the whole energy of the event. And c’mon, isn’t Mika’s message for her groom the sweetest thing ever? It seems like Chestknots Studios had a ball shooting this charming day–I mean who wouldn’t, right? Oh, and scroll down to see the same-day edit video by Mayad Studios!

The sun is shining a little brighter, our hearts are beating a tad faster, the world seems to be moving a lot slower–all this because Jose and Marianne’s enchanting wedding in Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa is exquisite in every possible way!

Tell me, who wouldn’t get heart palpitations when all these things are at play? Cheers to a lovely day, B&B-ers, cheers!

A Bright and Beautiful Adventure

Posted by Bianca Paraiso

Summer is almost here, and oh boy, are we beyond words excited! We so can’t stop thinking about all the exciting places out there to see, love stories to discover, and adventures to go on! But as much as we’d like to teleport to places we constantly daydream of, reality tells us to be patient. Fret not, we have the next best thing though! We Are Seekers sent us first class tickets to Brian and Pauline’s bright and beautiful wedding! With splashes of bold and gorgeous tones all throughout their big day, you’re certainly gonna dream of shores, sunshine, and your sweetheart. And we super love the romantic short clip they did (you can see it below)!  A piña colada and a beach chair would be so good right now. Cheers to love and a lot of laid-back lovin’.

Wonderful White

Posted by Bianca Paraiso

Do you feel the magic in the air? Cause Cherryblocks captured a lovely wedding for all of us to fall in love with this brilliant Tuesday morning! It’s a classic affair with a surprising kick that will surely convince you that sometimes, it’s okay to break the rules! Even with guests and an entourage dressed in all white garments, Jen, in her fab neutral-hued bridal gown, was still the only apple of Phil’s eye during their big day! Who ever said that the bride should be the only one in white was so so soooo wrong! Here’s to hoping this wedding inspires you to think out of the box for your special day too!

A Seaside Love

Posted by Bianca Paraiso

Find a love like the ocean–they say. “Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away”.

There’s a reason why poets write such things about love and the ocean. There’s just something about the two when put together that’s so captivating. We can’t properly put into words the reasons why things are such. Lucky for us, Metrophoto can wonderfully show us through their effervescent photos of Marki and Gun. So, go on! Let this story of a seaside love unfold right before your eyes. A sunny Thursday to you all!

Divinely Dreamy

Posted by Janna Simpao

When you’ve experienced the beaches in the Philippines, it’s quite hard not to fall in love with them. Can you picture it? The white sand… the clear waters… the sound of the calm ocean… it seems to be whispering perfection. And for David and Nicolette’s wedding, everything was indeed awesomely breathtaking. Not only did the scenery of Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa serve as one of the most gorgeous beach destinations a couple could wish for, it was truly an affair overflowing with chic and pretty details. With Jorem and Sheila Catilo Photography capturing a groom that looked quite dapper in a white suit, a bride that wore the most divine dress ever, and aqua & white hues that will make your heart long for the ocean, no wonder our Wednesday is looking darn dreamy.
