Love in Bloom

Posted by Janna Simpao

Hello folks! Oh, you have no idea how we are over-the-moon-excited to start the year with wonderful things. It seems only fitting to kick off with something totally romantic and elegant, don’t you think? Ernest and Golda’s wedding will surely make your heart full. And thanks to these photos from Marlon Capuyan, we get to welcome 2014 with a beautiful bang.

With such gorgeous colors and exquisite elements, we are reminded to make sure we don’t make our drooling too obvious to the person sitting next to us. Oh, who cares! We love, love, love the white dapper tux and breathtaking long-sleeved wedding gown. A big thumbs up to the splash of turquoise and colorful Spring blooms too! If this is a foreshadowing of 2014 celebrations, then I’d say were in for a pretty good treat!

Fashion Friday: Oscar de la Renta Spring Bridal 2014

Posted by Janna Simpao

Let’s talk about texture and whimsy, shall we? Oscar de la Renta‘s 2014 Spring Collection is a charming treat to all brides who adore enjoy a mix of tradition and edge. For some reason, I’m totally loving the softness and elegance of the blue gown! Although not many brides go for color on their big day, this surely is an inspiration for those who would. And who wouldn’t gush over those chic flower girl dresses right? Adorable, adorable, adorable!

Have a lovely Friday sweethearts!


Beauty and Blossoms

Posted by Janna Simpao

If you loved the first set of Andy and Tina’s engagement shoot, then you better be prepared to be swooned by this new set of photos. We are simply going bonkers over how pretty the styling is. Something Splendid has been wowing us this past year and we simply adore their work. Remember darlings, no matter how great your stylist is, you have to make sure your photographer is just as good. And on that note, let me just say that Kent Lazarraga is definitely becoming a B&B fave. We just love, love, love how colors come to life in all his photos. What an amazing way to start our week. Yup, I so love my job!


Fashion Friday: Amsale Bridal Spring 2014

Posted by Rachelle Que

Don’t you wish the term “retail therapy” also applied to bridal gowns? It’s Friday today and that means we have another collection to go ga-ga crazy over! Amsale’s 2014 collection is just too breathtaking for words! And I don’t mean that in that the pieces are ornately and extravagantly crafted, but that they are outstanding in the quiet elegance kind. I love the understated exquisiteness of each design, its beauty lying in the silhouette and fit on the body. If you could wear a gown every day of the week, this collection would make a fabulous wardrobe! Complete with extra options for days when you just absolutely have “nothing to wear”.

Of course these are just the sentiments of a daydream–a luxury that you too can enjoy. It’s free to dream, right? Scroll down and happy dreaming!

My Fair Ladies Editorial

Posted by Janna Simpao

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!

Once Upon A Time: A Modern Fairytale Editorial

Posted by Rachelle Que

Just when we think fairytales are for little boys and girls, we get to work on something so magical that we find ourselves believing in fairytales once again. Here at B&B, we strive to bring to you the best ideas for your own big day. Just a few months ago, we brought you the First Love Editorial which probably left you in a state of giddiness! Today we excitedly bring you more (yey!). In hopes of inspiring each and every one of you with this gorgeous editorial, we bring to you elements that are fit for a damsel and her prince.

This modern fairytale was shot by the rising-like-a-rocket, up-and-coming photographer Marlon Capuyan for Bride and Breakfast has left us simply lost for words. Together with Cuckoo Cloud Concepts, a tasteful styling team that we have had our eyes on for months now, we knew that we struck gold. This editorial is quite special in our hearts since it is the first ever shoot that had 100% Cebu-based suppliers, all of which have delivered way beyond our expectations (check out the supplier list below). Real-life engaged couple Vaughn and Nana were shot in Gaite Ranch, located just two hours away from the city, and is perfect for a destination wedding.

We hope you love this as much as we do!

Flowers, lace and the vibrant colors of Spring are probably some of my most favorite things in the world. When I saw Valentino Resort 2013, I naturally found myself dreamily appreciating the dresses, fabric and designs. So why not let these beauties inspire you today? Love, romance and pretty is definitely in the air.

Sweetness of Spring

Posted by Janna Simpao

There is something so dreamy about spring colors. I must admit, most days I find myself hoping to see more of this much-coveted palette. So you can imagine my thrill when Jaja Samaniego (whose style of photography is definitely loved here at B&B), sent these fresh and bright photos my way. Raymond and Adele’s one-lazy-afternoon-getaway themed shoot is all about the pretty. Plus I am totally, TOTALLY, loving the engagement bouquet by Vatel Manila. Let’s just say this is what I mean by having the right amount of cuteness and the perfect dose of chic.

Fashion Friday: Christos Spring/Summer 2012

Posted by Janna Simpao

This week was one of the most bridal gown-filled weeks I’ve ever experienced. From visiting a wedding magazine gown shoot last Monday, to going through ready-made designer dresses yesterday, and finally going with a friend to fit a custom-made piece later today. I think it’s only apt that I cap off the week with some amazing ensembles. The Spring/Summer 2012 collection of Christos is overflowing with girly sweetness, textured fabrics and beautiful details. Now who wouldn’t want to walk in one of these? See you all next week!
