A Trove of Tasteful

Posted by Janna Simpao

When when a gown designer gets engaged and married, we expect to see some awesome dresses. And this is so true for Mickey and designer Joe San Antonio. With a beyond-beautiful engagement set and wedding photos by Metrophoto, we kept ooo-ing and aaahhh-ing seeing dress after dress after dress. We can’t help but notice a trove of tasteful elements embracing them, a site that makes our hearts flutter with delight. Oh and we must mention these lovebirds looked quite dapper and divine in every single frame, we didn’t know that much beauty can exist in one post. So take heed because a treasured love and an exquisite memoir will surely sweep you off your feet today.

A Seaside Love

Posted by Bianca Paraiso

Find a love like the ocean–they say. “Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away”.

There’s a reason why poets write such things about love and the ocean. There’s just something about the two when put together that’s so captivating. We can’t properly put into words the reasons why things are such. Lucky for us, Metrophoto can wonderfully show us through their effervescent photos of Marki and Gun. So, go on! Let this story of a seaside love unfold right before your eyes. A sunny Thursday to you all!

Polished Perfection

Posted by Janna Simpao

We’re kicking off our Monday with something very style savvy. JR and Karen’s elegant affair is just the thing we expect Metrophoto to cover perfectly. Karen was simply stunning in her Joe San Antonio gown, and her bridesmaids’ dresses complimented her contemporary look with neutral colors that exuded timeless sophistication. Of course, we are also loving that the groom opted for a modern gray suit that was all sleek and suave. But to cap off this gorgeous celebration, we find ourselves simply smitten by the reception styling of Zenas Pineda. Yes siree, the flowers and decor were nothing short of ahhmazing! So go ahead, stay a while to see something stunning.

Sending out some love and inspiration to everyone today!

Of Seaside Sweethearts and Style

Posted by Janna Simpao

I could almost smell the ocean just by looking at these gorgeous photos by Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto. Raf and Flora’s beach wedding exudes a timeless elegance as well as a dab of modern sleekness that is the very reason why I am gushing hopelessly over this affair. For one, the deep and vibrant hues of green does justice to the whole seaside vibe. Even the flower girl dresses were so cute! And then there’s Flora’s earrings which were the perfect touch to her chic asymmetrical-designed gown. It’s amazing how the small but sophisticated elements in this wedding makes it so amazing. Now this is one stylish fête that has left us smitten indeed.

Of Art and Affection

Posted by Janna Simpao

First thing that came to my mind when I laid my eyes on this engagement shoot of Carlo and Irene was CABO, MEXICO. I couldn’t believe that this was just taken locally at the Pinto Art Museum. Of course, we have to give a high five to Oly of Metrophoto for the rich and vibrant photos he captured. I also loved how Irene styled their own outfits. Aside from the pretty clothes, I think the smallest details like accessories and pins were incredible!

Amazing Aristocratic Affair

Posted by Janna Simpao

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.

Alluring Sophisticaton

Posted by Rachelle Que

All you need to make a good engagement shoot is a game couple and an inspired perspective. Throw in a few statement pieces into that mix and you’re set! Jino and Leanne’s shoot is both fresh and sultry, understated yet elegant. A bold red number, a sexy lace dress, and great energy tie this shoot together in graceful sophistication. Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto did a wonderful job capturing the pretty details and sweet moments.

Just what we need for this bustling week! Stay inspired and have a wonderful Wednesday.

Details in the Fabric

Posted by Rachelle Que

Guests in every wedding wait with bated breath to see the bride. It is, after all, her big day (sorry grooms, but you know it’s true)! Mike and Andrea’s wedding was definitely no exception. I can just imagine the gasping of breaths and the widening of eyes when this particular bride walked down the aisle of Santuario de San Antonio. Andrea was positively glowing in her magnificent Veluz gown! The back had an exquisite lace detail sewn on fabric so sheer it was almost invisible. Topped off with a sprinkle of pearl buttons and a pretty cream bow tied and clasped with a brooch, it is so beautiful I can just cry at the genius of it!

Please brace yourselves as I regain my composure, and enjoy these photos by the brilliant Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto.
