Petal Prettiness

It is indeed the season to be jolly! We’re really grinning from ear to ear because of the gorgeousness that has been making its way to our pages, making our December more beautiful each passing day. So before we do our Christmas countdown, we’re taking time to admire Mikko and Kate’s petal pretty fête! Ernest Pascual of Bespoke Manila (who happens to be the groom’s brother), made sure that it would be a wedding showered with dainty details and lavish love. With these ro-ro-romantic photos by Metrophoto and a super sweet video by Bob Nicolas, we suggest you cozy up in your little corner and enjoy some good ol’ floral lovin’!

Amazing Aristocratic Affair

Pinch me, I must be dreaming! When Oly of Metrophoto sent this our way, I almost fainted. Chris and Amanda’s wedding is all about whimsical elegance. A stately garden affair that seems to have been meticulously prepared for a prince and her princess, the details were all divine. I wasn’t surprised since the vendors behind this fairytale wedding are all so talented. Take for example that wedding gown! Veluz has once again shown such impeccable style and creativity. Then there’s the bouquet by Vatel Manila which was just breathtaking. And oh my, the cake done by Peachy Juban was just brilliant don’t you think? There’s just too many things we love about this affair! A regal and almost aristocratic ambiance sets the mood of inspiring romance. So come on board folks, kick back and enjoy the view.

Promises and Pretties

Today is pretty special. Since we launched the new look of Bride and Breakfast yesterday, we feel that it is very important that we start off this week with a dose of pretty. The best way to do that is to have bucket loads of inspiration for you, and a wedding that will leave you wanting more!

I’ve been saving Conrad and Margaux’s wedding shot by Pat Dy for this day. Not only is this an affair oozing with elegance, it’s also filled with dainty details. But I must admit the scene stealer for this lovely fête is really the bride and her oh-so-gorgeous Veluz gown. The applique is simply breathtaking and the attention to detail is ridiculously superb–I think this one of the best Veluz gowns I’ve seen so far! What I am also totally loving is the post-wedding shoot where Margaux paired the skirt of the gown to a casual white tee and tons of pearls. Talk about effortless style.

Dapper Dedication

You know how I was MIA the whole of last week? Well, along with the bajillion things we’re cooking up for the blog (expect something big really soon!), I was planning my son’s birthday. So yes, this post will deviate a bit from weddings, but will definitely still be in our little bubble of style and inspiration. If you ask me what his theme was, I’d probably have no answer. But what I do know is that I decided to just make this party about elements and colors we love–things that remind me of my little chubba’s cuteness (of course as his mom, I am his number one fan)!

We decided to celebrate his birthday along with a ceremony of dedicating him to the Lord. We know we’ve been blessed with the most wonderful gift and we just want to acknowledge and commit who he is and who he will be to God. It’s the most amazing memory to stand with family and friends as we celebrate life, grace and love. Oh, and don’t ever forget, having dependable and talented suppliers is always the way to go…

Indulge me?

To my little dapper dude, Happy Birthday.
