After that power outage yesterday, I simply couldn't wait to write again. Contrary to many peoples' preference, I love rain. But the dark clouds have passed and today we welcome sunshine-filled things, one of them Arthur and Sheilan's wedding. This is our first Cebu wedding feature and it definitely doesn't disappoint. A celebration that speaks of romance, drama and a feel of royalty. The elements contributing to the overall feel of the wedding were exquisite. Sheilan, the breathtakingly gorgeous bride pulled of the term "the more, the merrier" with regards to her choice of crystals. The embellishments on her gown and hairpiece created a dreamy, princess-like aura. Don't fret Arthur, I haven't forgotten about you! Props to the groom for appropriately choosing a tux that matches his bride's look. I love so many things about this wedding and I think you will too.I love the gray gowns of the sponsors. The color, style and fabric reflects Cebu's artistic culture.These flower arrangements are so perfect. Tall, lush and pretty always does the trick. I really like the fact that it doesn't look like your typical wedding arrangement, and was very tastefully done.Here's a peek at the couple's onsite video. The song used was Michelle Tumes', Lovely. Although I've heard this song so many times, it simply never gets old. This one is worth your while!http://vimeo.com/11652763If Cebu produces weddings as picture-perfect as this, Bride and Breakfast will surely have a feast. Congratulations to you Arthur and Sheilan!Photography: Nelwin Uy / Makeup: Wenwen Zaspa / Video: MG Digital / Church: Sacred Heart / Coordination: Shirley Grace Ong

As some of you know, I spent the weekend here in Cebu to support my husband in his Ironman 70.3 race. And because I am enjoying this lovely place, I think it's apt that I feature one of the local gems of Cebu, photographer Mark Cantalejo. I wanted to write about the ballerina-themed shoot he did for blogger Kryz Uy because I think it is such a a good inspiration idea for a ballet-themed wedding or bridal shoot. Even future brides can use this as an inspiration for their bridal entourage style! It's just too pretty to pass. So for this lovely morning, we leave you with this ballerina belle.

I rarely talk about myself but I think I owe you all an explaination for not blogging for almost a week. Confession time! I have been gone for a couple of days because I spent last week lounging in the beautiful sands of Boracay. It was so good to just have some R&R with my amazing husband and my little munchkin Matteo. Here's a family picture we took (check out my son's fierce pout)!Anywayyyy, I hopped on a plane back to Manila last Saturday. Since a lot of my readers also ask for recommendations for a make-up artist, I definitely urge you to go try out one of my favorite ones, Ericka Regino. Having to do a quick change from the airport, Erika gave me a gorgeous smoky-eyed look, then I was off to a friend's wedding.And now, back to regular programming. Lovely Monday darlings!Make-up: Ericka Regino - +63(999) 750-2466
