Gorgeous Gracefulness

Posted by Bianca Paraiso

Here at Bride and Breakfast, we’re always mesmerized by the kind of glow that a bride possesses. We’ve always been firm believers that a woman looks her utmost breathtaking best on her wedding day. We didn’t think it was possible that the same bride could exude an extra aura of gracefulness on top of all that bridal glow, up until we saw Kate’s photos from Myio Okamoto. No wonder Noel is head over heels in love with her! She looked absolutely gorgeous in both her prenup and wedding day dresses! Here’s to hoping that some of that bridal magic will rub off on us! Cheers!

Pretty, Pink and Perfect

Posted by Janna Simpao

My idea of a perfect day is looking through gorgeous wedding photos with a good cup of coffee beside me. And boy, oh boy, I am having a spectacular day indeed! Miguel and Maita’s wedding is just about the daintiest I have seen. A rush of floral pink perfection and decor details by Spruce Floral Designs, charmed us to the moon and back. And yeah, these photos by the awesome photographer Pat Dy made me love my job even more. Maita of course looked absolutely divine in that gorgeous Veluz (why am I not surprised?). And the handpainted invites designed by Arlene Sy of Bonnie Paperie is one dreamy delight. But, when you still find yourself wanting more, check out the SDE video of Bob Nicolas, the vows will certainly surprise you. It’s a pink-perfect-kinda-day here at B&B, and we love it!

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.

Tales of Sophistication and Romance

Posted by Rachelle Que

There is perhaps no better pairing than the mix of modern treatment and classic details. John and Melissa’s wedding was a breath of fresh air with the beautiful elements of lace, pearls, and crystals. It was a marvelous affair of elegance and softness married in sophisticated styling. The pigeonholes with the guests’ seat cards were a nice touch, and the little notes inside them even sweeter. I would’ve loved opening an envelope with my name and seat number! Maybe just as much as I would’ve enjoyed writing a love note to hang on the little plant.

I really just pored over and adored every detail, from the vintage-chic frames to the pretty blooms and the stylish typography (designed by Fozzy of The Fozzy Book, who also did B&B’s logo!)–everything was utterly romantic and classy. Revel in the images below–a perfectly captured, framed, and lit photo story by Jeff and Lisa Photography–and bask in the wonderful, wonderful feeling of enduring love and style.

Beauty in Blue

Posted by Janna Simpao

Every wedding I write about in B&B has its unique flair. Despite the different styles of each celebration, one thing remains true… it’s beauty. So today we have another romantic one lined up–Robert and Jade’s big day is gorgeous and glamorous. But I think her exquisitely embellished blue bouquet and shoes definitely need to have a special mention. With glittering details like that, you’re really bound to turn some heads.

Captivating Classic Charm

Posted by Janna Simpao

In a time wherein personalities really reflect I do’s, I get to enjoy different creative affairs and appreciate diversity of themes. Yet, there is always an unexplainable beauty about the classic approach to weddings. Noel and Viv’s wedding is just that. It had the right amount of elegance, feminine details and soft elements. Let’s see… a gorgeous Pronovias gown (which photographs beautifully I might add!), those too-pretty-for-words pastel entourage gowns, plus an English garden vibe to the reception was enough to send me to a wedding dreamy daze.

And on an even more romantic note, our dashing groom, who wanted to surprise his bride with a feature in B&B wrote:

Dear Viv,

It’s been 3 months since our wedding but it still feels like yesterday. I wanted to surprise you with this because I remember how much we used to enjoy browsing Bride and Breakfast and getting inspiration during our wedding planning. Thank you for being such a perfect partner as we embark on this new adventure together. Love you!
