I can’t breathe! That’s my usual reaction to beautiful things… and well, we all know Vania Romoff creates beautiful things. I am ecstatic that she finally launched a bridal collection this year (been dying for it to come out!), and let’s just say we were not disappointed. Even the flower girl dresses were to die for! Sleek lines, romantic and classic silhouettes, timeless fabrics–these gowns are every elegant bride’s dream come true. Enough talking, it’s time to swoon!
Are we having the loveliest morning or what? If we made a list of our favorite things (and people) in this world, then we’d have a big check mark on today’s editorial. Gorgeous cakes… check! A beautiful garden location and awesome set styling… check! Our faves from the wedding industry… a big check!
Let’s go through it shall we? We perfectly know that a Veluz gown can make a thousand jaws drop in a matter of seconds. Well… what if you get to see nine of them all at once? These dresses hail from the recently launched Veluz RTW bridal collection, and yes, we cannot stop swooning over them. The famous and lovely lady photog Jaja Samaniego and flower genius Dylan Gozum of Vatel Manila invited us to be part of this masterpiece shoot and we didn’t hesitate on our “yes”! Maybe that’s due to knowing everything these folks touch turns into awe-inspiring art. And because we just love, love, love the idea of inspiring our readers, we can’t wait for you to see it yourself. Oh yes… we’re having the loveliest morning indeed!
We’re probably one of the many people who truly take the campaign, Weddings… It’s more fun in the Philippines, with great honor. Being a blog that celebrates Philippine weddings, well… let’s just say I’ve been wowed many times over, to the moon and back. When we heard that one of our posts was actually mentioned in the official Facebook page of the Department of Tourism’s It’s more fun in the Philippines campaign, we practically did cartwheels! Yeah, it’s no Nobel prize award, but it’s certainly a great privilege for us to be a part of something that gives back to our nation. We’ve always been so proud of the Philippines, its people, and the talent that the country has.
And just like us, our friends in the industry prove that they too take much pride in the beauty of weddings celebrated in this country. The talented Bob Nicolas brilliantly crafted this must-watch video in support of the campaign. Certainly a great way to jumpstart our morning. Mabuhay!
For the classic bride, Amsale is one gold mine. The clean lines and sophisticated silhouettes are just a few things we love about this brand. Their bridesmaid dresses exude simple elegance and youthful taste, which never goes out of style. So yes, we must definitely make this collection a Fashion Friday feature, because ignoring it will be a total crime against wedding gowns.
Happy weekend folks!
We’ve been seeing a lot of gorgeous debut shoots lately, and yes, we’re really loving them! Many of the concepts are so creative and beautiful that it made us think, “Hmmm… why not show them to the world?” So once in a while we will feature debut shoots (particularly those with a bit of a dreamy vibe) under the Belle and Breakfast category. They can even serve as concept inspirations for bridal portraits or engagement shoots–the young ladies definitely have some unique ideas up their sleeve!
For our regular readers, you have seen a fair share of Mark Cantalejo‘s wedding shoots in B&B. Today will be a bit different, but no less romantic. I am crazy in love with Ellen’s pre-debut shoot–the violin, the field, the dress, the horse… everything! It screams soft femininity and timeless beauty. This shoot certainly earned its place for being our first ever feature for Belle and Breakfast.
