Since we’ve been having super sunny days lately, I think it would be appropriate to feature a sunshine-filled wedding. With bursts of yellow and an extremely radiant bride, this wedding is everything happy, bright and fun. Another thing to love about this wedding is that the couple, John and Criselle made it a point to show their personalities, exercise their creativity, and maximized their resources to achieve the wedding they’ve always dreamed of. Key word: FOOD!
From the bride:
From the beginning, we wanted to work on a theme, not just a color theme; but a theme that speaks of us. We are quite opposites. I am more loud and experimental, John is a bit more serious and conventional. John plays golf, I love to sing. I hate sports, he hates dancing and singing. It started as if there was no common thing we both liked until we realized we just had it right under our nose—John and I love going to the market, eating, cooking and exploring new recipes and personalizing them. So we ended up with the kitchen theme.
To start off, we had our engagement shoot in Robinsons supermarket and a kitchen. Our invite was also quite different, I had a friend create the copy for us. The design had pans and aprons and kitchen stuff on it. Our souvenirs were silver spoons and forks and the backdrop we used for our photobooth had scribbles of salt and pepper shakers. Instead of numbering our tables, we named them— each table was named with either a spice or a herb. Even our bridal registry list was full of kitchen equipment! Our cake topper was also a miniature version of us wearing chefs hats while holding a golf club and a microphone.
