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.

Rain and Romance

Posted by Janna Simpao

Remember the cute and retro Stepford Wives-themed engagement shoot of Peewee and Camille? Being the brains behind the The Best-Case Scenario Events certainly was a plus is being exposed to all things wedding, making their own so splendidly fun, homey and quirky. Splashes of rainbow-colored deets, vintage elements and delicious treats leave me daydreaming about how fanciful wedding festivities can be. No wonder Noel Salazar had so many gorgeous photos of this affair. Love is in the air here at B&B!

The theme is Rainy Wedding / Under One Umbrella because of the month of the wedding which is July. So the elements used in the styling are umbrellas, clouds and crystal beads for rain.
And when it’s raining, where is the best place to be? Of course at home. Where it is cozy and you’re relaxed. That’s the main concept of the reception area. We used cupboards, side tables and couch for the couple’s area, flower boxes on fences, books, vintage colorful candleholders, picture frames and vases for the centerpieces. (Also, some of the furniture we used is custom made and designed by us. We had it made for the wedding and for our home). “Under One Umbrella” also symbolizes our unity as a couple under one umbrella that binds us – God.
