Sweet Sunshine Charm

Posted by Janna Simpao

Saturdays are meant for us to sit back and take a break… but before we did that, we found ourselves enjoying the sweetness of Johann and Marge’s wedding snaps by Michelle Pineda Photography. It is certainly a burst of sunshine and an overflowing serving of charm. Believe it or not, our favorite photo is of the groom and groomsmen’s colored socks… it never gets old! So come join us as we say hello to the weekend and savor our daily dose of beautiful inspiration.

City Rustic Reverie

Posted by Janna Simpao

A little bit of city chicness here, and a bit of a classic rustic touch there, and you’ve got yourself one of the most elegant weddings you can ever imagine. That’s exactly why Jeff and Paula’s affair captured our hearts into swoonville. We can’t begin to say how much we were drooling over the modern attire–Paula’s simple and sophisticated dress, Jeff’s sleek suit, the styles and hues of the entourage dresses, the red Manolos. Then to soften everything up, we see touches of garden gorgouesness with a twist of chevron. Now if you don’t wanna take our word for it, you better see these amazing photos by Marlon Capuyan. What an awesome Monday we’re having!

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!

Sweet Soft Sophistication

Posted by Janna Simpao

Weddings have a way of steering emotions that no other event in this universe could. It is nostalgia, serenity, joy, and dreaminess rolled into one moment, magnified a hundred thousand times more. Kenneth and Jeng certainly lived their very own dream-come-true affair, and it was a beautiful one! With the ever charming shade of blush and mint and a drop dead gorgeous gown (we totally love the fabric!), this day was turned into a celebration of sophisticated romance.We’re also head over heels in love with the reception decor–the yellow lighting and rustic styling made everything look so elegant and enchanting. Bravo, Jorem and Sheila Catilo for capturing these exquisite moments!

Sunshine Loveliness

Posted by Janna Simpao

What an amazing thing it is to have a sunshine-filled celebration. And thanks to WeDoItForLove, we get to paint a big grin across our faces. Rob and Pam’s bright and endearing seaside wedding is one of steady charm and undeniable lightness. Then again, having some sand, waves, and two people in love is always a pretty good mix in our book!

Blossoming Beginnings

Posted by Janna Simpao

Count on gorgeous flowers to make a big difference on your engagement session. There is just something utterly romantic about blooms, in this case, a Vatel Manila bouquet. Jeff and Paula’s bright and garden-fresh photo shoot is a balanced mix of laid back and lovely. And truth be told, I am a huge fan of this kind of theme–real, easy, soft, and simple. Yup, I am making it official, this is what chic modern elegance is all about! And to top off that, photographer Marlon Capuyan was behind the lens. Now if that wasn’t a winning combination, I dunno what is.

Of Seashores and Serendipity

Posted by Janna Simpao

There’s something very casual and cool about this engagement session shot by WeDoItForLove. Vincent and Beth look calm and cozy in each other’s arms, almost lost in their own world beside the beach. Quirky but equally subtle elements make this set memorable and bursting with candid character. Don’t you just love the mattresses on the shore? It’s a steady Saturday here in B&B, and we don’t mind it at all… not at all.


Of Blooms and Daydreams

Posted by Rachelle Que

There’s nothing quite so pleasant than the sight (and scent) of pretty flowers. A wedding dressed in thoughtfully-picked arrangements is instantly tinged with an air of romance and filled with the fragrance of blissful dreams. Jeri and Zandy’s big day was styled with a wonderful assortment of charming flowers and dainty handmade details. Who can go wrong with the pairing of fresh blooms with handcrafted little ornaments and decor? Definitely a thumbs up for us here at B&B!

Randolf Evan captured each moment and every dreamy detail in the soft lighting that makes us sigh with happiness and contentment. Go on, see for yourself!

Swooning Over Sweetness

Posted by Janna Simpao

Nothing beats starting our Mondays with beautiful brides, breathtaking bouquets and bucketloads of B&B goodness. EJ and Donna’s wedding is everything that gets our hearts racing and our swoon radar going. My particular favorite about this affair? The watercolor petal design of the invitations–it’s just too precious and pretty. The rest of the details, colors and elements also exude the same softness and sweetness that I just can’t help but feel that this wedding will surely inspire us to float on our romantic clouds today.

Basking on Boheme

Posted by Janna Simpao

Today’s wedding menu serves a quirky bohemian affair. How fun are those pretty printed bridesmaid dresses, adorable puppies with garlands and our groom’s cute boutonnière? It’s all about the floral details, spring hues and a whole lot of laid-back goodness. Jay Jay Lucas of Chestknots Studios made sure he drizzled this wedding with his usual spunky approach on capturing Carlo and Heidi’s big day moments.

Have a lovely Thursday!
