Fields and Feathers

There is something quite nostalgic about open fields and sunlight. Maybe it’s the familiar comfort it exudes? Or the peaceful surroundings it portrays? Whatever it may be, Harry and Gizelle’s engagement shoot by Marlon Capuyan (I love his work!) has gotten me wrapped around its pretty little bohemian fingers. Pretty furniture, a well-styled wardrobe and some feather details set against this field of dreams is enough to send us to inspiration heaven.

The Nook: Guest Speaking for XOXO Workshop by Nelwin Uy

If you’re a wedding junkie like me, then you probably know who Nelwin Uy is. Being one of the top photographers in the country, Nelwin’s work has graced Bride and Breakfast time and time again. I was definitely thrilled beyond my wits when he asked me to be a guest speaker to his upcoming XOXO Workshop. ACCCKK!!! I get to talk about B&B and blogging about gorgeous weddings. And guess what? It even falls right on my birthday weekend! Being so passionate about what I do, this is totally a fun way to celebrate for me (yes, I am nerdy like that)!

FYI, workshop slots were sold out in like 2 seconds.


The Chic and Glamorous in Paris

Honeymoon shoots are starting to gain popularity nowadays. It was a surprise to me when I received an email from Kate, a B&B reader who said she and her hubby were inspired to do a honeymoon shoot upon seeing our very own Japan post nuptial photo session.

Just when you thought a Paris getaway was romantic enough as is, having these gorgeous pictures to look back to when you’re old and gray will definitely bring back more amazing memories. Take note, our pretty little lady here has an eye for styling and came up with their own wardrobe! Loving the chic and glam Kate and Paolo! It’s good to be loved.

I couldn’t resist posting the sweet email I received from Kate:

Hi Janna,

I’m a big follower of Bride and Breakfast. I got a lot of inspiration from your blog while I was planning my wedding.

But more than that… I just wanna THANK YOU BIG TIME for posting your post-nuptial photos–those were gorgeous photos and gave me a bright idea to do a post-nup pictorial too! Like you, we didn’t have any pre-nuptial shoot because we thought it’s too normal but when you posted your Tokyo post-nup photos, me & my fiance (that time) thought–why don’t we do the same during our honeymoon in Paris?!

And so we did… we got in touch with “One & Only Paris Photography”, French & American photographers based in Paris and they did the amazing shoot for us… so I thought it would be great to share the photos with you as a token of our gratitude for inspiring us.

Janna, thanks for inspiring so many brides like me. Doing that post-nup was indeed a fantastic decision we made and we couldn’t have thought of that if it wasn’t for your blog! All the best to you and to Bride and Breakfast!

Era of Engagement

Love vintage? Well you’ll love this. A super charmingly-gorgeous-and-overwhelmingly-sweet couple, Vince and Rej is the real deal! Plus their photographer, Jeff and Lisa, definitely delivered for the theme and vibe the couple wanted! I’ll let the photos do the talking for now.

Hold on! I’m not yet done. If you liked their pictures, you’ll definitely gush over their wedding trailer. Mayad does it again! But with a couple as in love as these two, I’d think it was a breeze filming them. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Feel the love–I definitely did!
