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!

I have been dreaming about this event since last year. For most of our readers and our friends from the wedding industry, you know that Bride and Breakfast takes our wedding editorials quite seriously. We conceptualize, plan, and execute themes in collaboration with different suppliers who have taken on the challenge to help us realize visions and themes that we know our readers will love.Some of these editorials are First Love, Beauty and the Beloved, and Wed Colorfully. And today, we are so, so, so proud to announce the Bride and Breakfast Editorial Fest 2014. It won't just be our typical one-themed editorial, we're doing three simultaneous ones. And yes, we think it will be epic. We believe in sharing our vision with as many people as possible so we are opening this shoot fest to awesome photographers out there that we'll love to shoot along with.What is the Bride and Breakfast Editorial Fest?We have always been keen on bringing something new to the wedding industry every year, and this editorial shoot on August 29, 2014 (Friday) is the first of its kind. There will three types of bridal editorial setups that photographer participants will be able to shoot within one day: a wedding editorial, an elopement editorial, and a bridal fashion and portrait editorial. All of these will have elaborate, complete, and interconnecting designs; professional models; and swoon-worthy details (e.g. cakes, invitations, table setting, etc.). There will also be three photographers acting as marshals in each setup—for this year, we are collaborating with Pat Dy, Nelwin Uy, and Jaja Samaniego. They will also be assisting and giving tips on how to approach the editorial, but at the end of the day, each participant has the freedom to shoot the editorial in their own personal style and technique.Here's a partial list of confirmed suppliers for the creation of the editorial themes. Stay tuned as we announce more vendor details for the Editorial Fest!Who can join the Bride and Breakfast Editorial Fest?Both seasoned and up-and-coming photographers who share our passion for carefully-curated editorial shoots are welcome to join. The focus is to be able to photograph the beautiful details of each editorial setup and to marry your personal shooting style with the Bride and Breakfast editorial style.What makes the Bride and Breakfast Editorial Fest a good investment?You get to instantly shoot three editorials that have been carefully thought of, planned, and executed by the Bride and Breakfast team together with some of the most respected suppliers in the industry. The rates for this event are actually very affordable considering that you will be able to do three editorial shoots, as the cost of the registration fee would even be enough to pay for one editorial setup, let alone three. These editorials can be posted on your blogs and portfolios and tagged as “Shot for the Bride and Breakfast Editorial Fest 2014”. Exchange knowledge and tips with participants, marshals, and the Bride and Breakfast team. This is an opportunity to show your own strength and style in approaching an editorial, and for Bride and Breakfast and our blog viewers to be more familiar with your work. Bride and Breakfast is constantly looking for partners in other shoots—having your work in our radar and being knowledgeable of your personal editorial shooting style will be a great way for us to determine possible future collaborations, and be a platform for many other opportunities for all parties involved. Build relationships with everyone involved in this production. You also get to tap their individual market through the social media posts and publicity that our participating suppliers will be generating. Last but not the least, it’s gonna be so fun! We wanna have a good time with you guys!What are the rates for participating in the Editorial Fest?Early Bird Rate: P17,500 (for all paid registrations on or before August 7, 2014) Regular Rate: P20,000Slots are limited to give an equal opportunity for all photographer participants to shoot all three editorial setups.

This week will be all-wedding pretty for B&B. I can't help but feel giddy knowing the gorgeous line up of weddings that will be featured in the coming days. Some people find inspiration in music, some in architecture and for some people like you and me, it really just has to be weddings. I even found myself waking up at six in the morning itching to show you this super beautiful wedding of Benjo and Anika.With the color theme of purple and green this has fun written all over it. Veluz has been a popular name for brides this past couple of years. Their attention to detail and fabric makes them a favorite in the wedding industry.I give two thumbs up for the charming bouquet that gave a spring vibe!Asking the bride why the wedding reflected her and her husband she answers: It was simple and elegant. As much as it's a cliché to say, it really was. I wanted all the frills, but my husband wanted just enough—so we compromised and ended up with such a nice mix of frivolousness and simplicity. And as for her highlights for the day: Getting ready—I seriously felt like a queen! I had people shooting my every move; I was sitting in this high chair and getting ready to get dolled up! It definitely felt like a once in a lifetime experience. Of course our vows were meaningful. And another favorite of the day was when we danced to "More than Anyone" by Gavin DeGraw... it was just the perfect song! Lastly, we loved our after party and the band. Church: San Agustin Church / Reception: Palacio De Maynila / Bride's Gown: Veluz / Groom's Attire: Rey Casedo / Entourage: Sonny Boy Mindo, Edward Teng & Rey Casedo / Photography: Paul Vincent Photography / Videography: Phoeben Teocson / Coordinator: Gille Tolentino of 168 Events Management / Makeup: Lanie Acedillo , bride and AnneVida, entourage/ Caterer: Hizon's / Souvenirs: Poof Photobooth / Flowers: Jo Laguna-Pafin of Love in Bloom / Styling: 168 Flower Company
