Doodle Darlings

Posted by Janna Simpao

We love seeing new ideas. And seeing weddings practically everyday, it’s rare that we see something really quite out of the box. Today will be one of those once-in-a-blue-moon moments. Inspired by the opening billboard of the TV Show “When Patrick Met Kylie”, this e-session video by Green Tomato Productions is the cutest thing that you’ll come across this weekend. Mickey and Veron’s love story has charmed its way to our hearts.

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!

Celebrity Wedding Video: Yael and Karylle

Posted by Janna Simpao

It seems like 2014 is a popular year for Philippine celebrities to tie the knot–and we are so not complaining. Yael and Karylle, both celebrities, said their I do’s last Friday and people have been curious to know what it was like. Well today, their official videographer Threelogy is giving us a glimpse of how this fun couple celebrated their big day. Of course, Yael’s song (being that his is a singer in a band) is playing in the background. There are so many things to love about the wedding, but like most of the girls out there, I usually go check the gown first. And I loooveee Karylle’s gown by Furne One. We’ll probably see more of it when the photos come out, but for now, enjoy this great vid and see these lovebirds goof around.

The Crazy Catch

Posted by Janna Simpao

All of us possess a little bit of crazy. But there is just something about finding the one who gets that little quirky side of you. Someone who gets every word you say (and those that you don’t). With all the celebrations that come our way, we somehow get a glimpse of a love story in how a couple does their wedding.

We particularly fell in love with Martin and Stefanie’s Great Gatsby meets Alice in Wonderland affair because it embodies how love can make us do beautiful things, as well as goofy ones. How small details (love love love the invitation design by the way), as well as family and friends make a wedding epic… How laughing, dancing, and throwing a drop-dead gorgeous celebration is totally cool. Stefanie was simply glowing in her classic gown. The light pink tones of the entourage dresses were the perfect balance to the bold and bright colors of the reception that was styled by Bea Valdes, which was the right balance of timeless and trendy. So go ahead, be a little crazy… it sure makes the world more fun. Thank you MangoRed for sharing the love!

One thing is for sure, Veluz is probably one of the most buzzed-about bridal gown designers in the Philippines. And because her gowns evoke beauty, whimsy, and romance, many Filipino brides dream of walking down the aisle in one. Now with her second collection for her RTW line, many brides around the world are rejoicing that they too can finally strut in one of these breathtaking gowns. It’s amazing craftmanship and ingenius design all rolled into one perfect garment. Well done Veluz, well done!

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!

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.
