Bright Beginnings–A Shanghai Tang-Inspired Bridal Shower

It’s time to ready your hearts again, loves! We’ve got something for you today that is just bursting with buckets and buckets of inspiration, so you will surely need to take some sort of swooning safety precautions! It’s no secret that we’ve been pushing gorgeous and vibrant colors in the wedding scene this year–which is why we thought it would be totally fitting to clothe our first ever Bride and Breakfast bridal shower collaboration in an exciting color palette!

Tastefully styled by SaSO Events and decked in pretty floral arrangements by Nikki Chatto, Cathy’s bridal shower definitely isn’t your run of the mill affair! With carefully curated mixes of prints, patterns, and colors, this event held in Marco Polo in partnership with Rustan’s was just absolute perfection. Guests in a glam chic dress code, a wonderful three-piece cake by The Delightful Miss Joyce, a fun and pretty set of paper collaterals by Bacon Nation Creatives, and these stunning photographs by the über talented Nicolai Melicor… Need we really say more?

Resting on the Regal

There is an air of regalness whenever Metrophoto pictures land on our pages. And today is definitely proof of that. Howard and Ka’s wedding is overflowing with dashing drama and riveting romance. With some sparkles here, and a dose of sweetness there, we can’t help but enjoy this Wednesday treat.

Celebrity Wedding: Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes On-site Video

I am at a loss for words. Even as I have already watched the wedding video of Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes for the fifth time, I still feel butterflies in my stomach and an overwhelming outpour of joy in my heart. Not because these two are famous Philippine celebrities, or the fact that Mayad videos have a way of making you feel you are part of the story, or even the undeniable fact that Maricar was a breathtaking vision in that embellished masterpiece by Francis Libiran (although it is officially in my list of top 3 wedding gowns of the year!). Yes, these things played a big part in making this wedding beautiful, very beautiful in fact. But the thing the wows me the most is their love story. A testimony of chivalry, selflessness, and honor–Richard Poon, you’re the man! A love story written and orchestrated by God, a story of redeeming and unconditional love. Sealed with a first kiss that begins forever.

I am at a loss for words… and frankly, I don’t mind it.

Details in the Fabric

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.
