Breathtaking Beauty

Posted by Bianca Paraiso

Last week, we were all glued to Mayad’s swoon-inducing video of Payam and Gabriela’s gorgeous wedding (yes, the emphasis on the word gorgeous is necessary)! Chestknots Studios, on the other hand, will do nothing less than take your breath away with the dreamy pictures of this exquisitely enchanting affair. A day made up of a breathtaking location, the loveliest of hues, and a head-over-heels-in-love couple, will surely leave you gasping for air! Just remember to take your time, take deep breaths, and let Payam and Gabriela remind you why it’s so so so good to find your one true love.

Light and Lovely

Posted by Janna Simpao

There are some wedding videos that you can just watch over and over again even if you don’t know the couple. Something about it just leaves you feeling hopelessly smitten over the idea of being in love… of finding your soulmate. Payam and Gabriela’s wedding video by Mayad is just that. We are dyyyyying to see the official photos, but for now, this short film will definitely suffice and leave you with a big silly grin (and maybe wishing that you too can get married in Balesin).

We’re keeping it light and lovely this Monday morn folks. So excited for all our inspirations for this week!


The Wonderful Wait

Do you ever have those days when you just wanna lay around and watch romantic movies? Well, today’s video is not a movie but it sure is darn romantic. It’s a story of commitment, a story of sacrifice–a story of how beautiful it is to be in love. Mayad perfectly captures RJ and Louise’s journey to forever. Pass the tissue, please!

Celebrity Wedding: Jon Herrera and Patti Grandidge

Posted by Rachelle Que

Must.Catch.My.Breath! Today I find myself getting lost in a daydream of romance, beauty, design, and style as I catch a glimpse of the images of this beautiful affair coming to life before my very eyes. DJ Jon Herrera and Host/Model Patti Grandidge’s beach wedding is pure gorgeousness. Patti was nothing short of stunning in her Rosa Clara gown, exuding an effortless and elegant air about her. While Jon’s linen suit is all about simple freshness. Then we go on to the rich purple hues and the charming details that pop here and there… I have concluded that there can only be one result to seeing so much inspiration: fall in love with these two sweethearts!

Enjoy these photos taken by MangoRed! Happy Tuesday, loves!

Timeless Romance

Posted by Rachelle Que

Nothing makes my heart happier than a love that not only endures time, but thrives even in the mundane and routine of everyday. It was a pristine day on the shores of Balabag when Boracay-based wedding coordinator Amanda Tirol celebrated her anniversary with husband Bong in a surprise anniversary wedding.

I love the light and laidback details that dreamily envelop this beach fête. An airy sheer skirt, a sequin-sprinkled mini dress, a Star Wars timepiece, and an event colored with an affectionate and familiar love.

Prepare your hearts for an affair that is a testament to love that lasts!

Surreal Seaside Soiree

Posted by Janna Simpao

There’s something about the smell of the beach, the sound of the waves, and the sweetness of the sunshine that make beach weddings just too darn amazing! Kyle and Regina’s gorgeous destination wedding is beautiful beyond words. Dainty and adorable, this simple yet endearing affair is enough to make us have Dorothy’s red pumps and click our heels away to Maldives. This is also the first wedding we’re featuring that was captured by the ever so talented team of Mayad Photography. With their signature mark of romantic dreaminess, we’re surely left wanting more.

Bridal Elegance Editorial: Patty Laurel for Bride and Breakfast

Posted by Janna Simpao

There will always be that unique glow as a woman is about to be betrothed. Love consumes her very soul as she dreams the day away. She is like a beautiful rose, so fragrant and fragile. And yes, her beauty shines like the radiant sun. Because Bride and Breakfast is committed to bringing you the most romantic of romantics, we collaborated with a creative team in capturing a Bridal Elegance Shoot that will inspire every bride out there.

So why this editorial? A Bridal Elegance Shoot is usually done before the bride gets married. It aims to capture the bride-to-be’s beauty, youth and happiness. We asked Patty Laurel to do this shoot with us before she said her I do’s because we wanted a real bride to help bring to life the emotion only a woman in love can emulate. And wow, she was definitely one of the most amazing (inside and out) real brides we’ve met. And while it may be true that we have featured our fair share of wonderful couple’s shoots, we’re still hoping to see more Bridal Elegance Shoots like this from real brides out there. (C’mon ladies! Celebrate that prettiness!)

With such a gifted team behind this collaboration, our jaws dropped when we saw the photos and video. And yes, I can’t think of a better way to start our week.

And of course the video by Mayad is just breathtaking…

Celebrity Wedding: Patrick Filart and Patty Laurel

Posted by Janna Simpao

I dunno about you, but I love December! There’s just something so whimsical about the month that makes me feel all fuzzy inside. And here at B&B, we’ve never been more happy in enjoying this “ber” month because of all the gorgeous wedding inspirations that have been coming our way.

Patrick Filart and Patty Laurel‘s wedding is probably one of the highlight features of this month. Our couple is not a stranger to Bride and Breakfast, and we’ve been itching to write about “The Pats” wedding for days now. Why? Because it’s just so darn beautiful. Chic, simple, romantic, understated, whimsical, effortless… and the list goes on and on. I am in love with all the soft hues Patty chose for her entourage and decor. And of course, the impeccable style details makes this wedding one of my favorites for 2012. Thanks to the wonderful talent of Jorem and Sheila Catilo Photography (the photos are soooooo amazing!) and the rest of the talented team of this affair, I am in wedding heaven today.

Another treat we have is the Mayad Studios wedding highlights video that will be first featured here in B&B–happy dance!

Fall in love folks!

Sneak Peek: Patty Laurel for B&B

Posted by Janna Simpao

A few years back, I used to tell myself that one day I dream of hosting editorials for Bride and Breakfast. I am totally and utterly floored by the fact that that “one day” has come. I’ll be talking about this more in my next post at The Nook.

Because we want to give the most beautiful inspirations to our readers.

Because we wanna showcase the (seriously)amazing talent of our oh-so-wonderful local vendors.

Because we just get butterflies in our stomach when we see great ideas come to life.

To our dear friend (and real bride) Patty Laurel, who will be walking down the aisle this month, and to you, our faithful reader, here’s a sneak peek of the prettiness headed our way… very soon!
