Black and white will always have a special place in my heart. Vince and Jo's wedding in particular has lived up to the terms "timeless" and "tasteful". You'd have to believe me when I say that the structured patterns and details of this urban chic affair is simply a thing of elegance and beauty (stripes never goes out of style). The modern elements set against the beautiful greenery of The Mango Farm are simply breath taking. The dress, the invitations, the reception styling, the bouquet... I could go on and on and on about how our chic-o-meter went bonkers over this celebration, but I'll let these gorgeous photos by J Lucas Reyes do the talking.And if you want more of this delightful celebration, this fun and not-so-typical SDE vid by Redsheep will surely be worth your time.http://vimeo.com/46179959

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of being part of one of the most gorgeous editorials I've ever seen. I wanted to show you a video that will reflect how everyone really worked hard to make this happen. These are artists coming together with one goal--to inspire brides (and our other readers)! Enjoy this behind-the-scenes video of the Beauty and the Beloved editorial.http://vimeo.com/71136958Location: Angelfields Tagaytay. We could not have wished for a more gorgeous venue to do this shoot. This wide spread of greenery is just pure perfection.Photography: J Lucas Reyes is one of the most passionate photographers I know. His approach is classy and timeless. I mean, come on right? I think my words will fail to fully reflect the work he's done in this shoot. He gives his 101% to his subjects without compromising his own standards.Videography: Cinemaworks has been on our radar from day one. These guys are not just packed with skill, they are funny and very easy to work with. Marvi was able to execute how we envisioned the trailer to be. It got just the same admiration and applause as the photos!Flowers and Styling: Pat Pastelero of Spruce Floral Designs was definitely one of the key suppliers that made this editorial the way it is. Her tasteful and lush approach on flowers DID NOT disappoint. The nice thing about Pat is that she never scrimps on her blooms. When you see her work, you know it's nothing but the best! And did you see that swing? I think it was pure genius!Dresses:Maureen Disini: We adore this mauve lace dress she made. With an amazing fit and elegant style, we just fell in love with this dress. Pronovias: I can't express how blessed we were to have this RTW piece from Mi Sueño Bridal in the shoot. It was simply exquisite. There is always something beautiful about white lace. Eric Delos Santos: That fully embellished dress is what dream wedding gowns are made of!Suits: Just as the wedding gown of the bride is important, the suit is too. KC Mempin is one of the hidden gems of the suit industry. The fit is impeccable and the choice of fabric and style is really what we think suits should be.Bowties: Bowties are pretty big now in weddings and Rummage PH provided us with the most style-savvy ones ever.Paper and Invitations: Fozzy of the The Fozzy Book is a calligraphy superstar. She can make your heart skip a beat with her beautiful craft. Paper has never been more wonderful!Cake: Peachy Juban is very passionate about her craft. She really made sure that the cake would reflect what this shoot is about. Pretty and yummy, huh?Make-up: I love Ericka Regino's work. She's one of the most skilled and down-to-earth makeup artists I know. Definitely a person you'd want to have on your big day.Styling, Art Direction and Concept Development: Rachelle Que worked her magic in developing the concept I gave her. As a result, everyone knew exactly what we we're going to create. We couldn't have done this without her!

Beauty and the Beloved is about passion and restraint, power and gentleness, strength and vulnerability--very much what being in love feels like. We decided to show the elegant beauty of reds and blues, shades we don't see so often in weddings. Sophisticated silverware and a sweet swing will sweep you off your feet and swoon your heart. So come journey with us on this path of romance, style, and everlasting entwinement.My Beloved is mine and I am His. - Songs of Solomon 2:16http://vimeo.com/70761239A little about the team: If you loved our heart-stirring opening video by Cinemaworks we featured yesterday, then you will surely fall in love with this shoot magnificently captured by J Lucas Reyes (total understatement)! It was our first time to see Angelfields and this venue was a dream come true! Of course, Pat Pastelero of Spruce Floral Designs was the genius behind the gorgeous and overwhelmingly elegant garden luxe setting, and those bouquets were screaming understated tastefulness! The invitations and other paper details were handcrafted by The Fozzy Book, and you know how big fans we are of her calligraphy. And my, oh my, I cannot begin raving about the suits by KC Leyco-Memphin--the fit was impeccable and the fabric was beyond amazing. The chic bowties from Rummage complemented them perfectly. The gowns were from local and international designers, Maureen Disini (mauve and lilac lace dress), Pronovias from Mi Sueno Bridal (white wedding gown) and Eric Delos Santos (silver embellished gown)--all of which were divine. Peachy Juban whipped up a classic charming cake which reflected elements from the shoot. While real-life sweethearts Cristina Garcia, who was dolled up by make-up magician Ericka Regino, and Kirk Long, were the most easy people to work with. Now with a bunch like this, we're not surprised why this editorial has left us speechless.
