Polished Perfection

Posted by Janna Simpao

We’re kicking off our Monday with something very style savvy. JR and Karen’s elegant affair is just the thing we expect Metrophoto to cover perfectly. Karen was simply stunning in her Joe San Antonio gown, and her bridesmaids’ dresses complimented her contemporary look with neutral colors that exuded timeless sophistication. Of course, we are also loving that the groom opted for a modern gray suit that was all sleek and suave. But to cap off this gorgeous celebration, we find ourselves simply smitten by the reception styling of Zenas Pineda. Yes siree, the flowers and decor were nothing short of ahhmazing! So go ahead, stay a while to see something stunning.

Sending out some love and inspiration to everyone today!

Fusions and Forevers

Posted by Janna Simpao

Because we simply must start this week with vibrance, I decided that the perfect colors to usher in the days ahead are red, orange, purple and gold. Bogey and Denise’s Indian-inspired-with-a-hint-of-hipster wedding is all about colorful culture and unconventional details. Yup, this is proof that you can mix new details with old traditions. Here’s to fusions and forevers!

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!

A little bit of modern elegance meets garden romance will grace B&B today. Andy and Nikki’s heartfelt affair will sprinkle our Tuesday with pretty details and a love to last a lifetime. Isn’t it so good to be in love?

Rustic and Refreshingly Romantic

Posted by Janna Simpao

Oh how I’ve missed writing about these pretty little affairs. And the best way to start our string of gorgeous celebrations is to kick off with a too-charming-for-words wedding. I can always rely on Pat Dy to deliver the most breathtakingly romantic photos a bride and groom could ask for.

TJ and Marga’s garden wedding had an elegant rustic vibe that was overflowing with romantic and understated details. I can’t stress enough how I am totally in love with her wedding gown (really a breath of fresh air I’d say!). Plus, those flower girl dresses’ lace applique accents and pleated skirts are just brilliant. Everything is pure prettiness!

I can safely say that this will probably be in my top ten favorite weddings of the year. Effortless beauty is gonna be our favorite words for the day folks! It’s good to be back!

Pretty Perfection

I told myself I’d take a break from blogging for two weeks. However, when I saw Adrian and Zabrina’s wedding, I immediately changed my mind. I can’t simply stand the idea of withholding such breathtaking photos from all you B&B readers out there.

Simply adoring how Nelwin Uy captured elegant shots of the couple, their entourage and the little details here and there. I also can’t help but gush over Francis Libiran’s design for the wedding gown. His approach on encrusted crystals and fabric manipulation leaves me with one word in mind–divine!

Adrian and Zabrina, your day has perfection written all over it.

Passion for Pink

Posted by Janna Simpao

A blush pink wedding dress ALWAYS gets my attention (maybe because I too would’ve walked down the aisle in one)! Raoul and Bianca certainly knew how to say their I do’s in style. I am totally crushing on the outfits in this post. From bridal shoes to bridesmaid dresses, this is one wedding with a flair! A celebration that exudes softness as well as strength, this will definitely start our Monday right. Have a pretty week ahead!

Because I love the outfits so much, I decided to have the bride share some tidbits about it:

It was a Raoul and Bianca wedding because our wedding theme was simple and it was to basically ‘punctuate’ our love for each other. The 12 years of being boyfriend-girlfriend paved the way for us to meet the people we love and cherish. It allowed us to know each other more–our quirks, our preferences, and what we don’t like–and it gave us a good reason to party with our closest and most treasured family and friends.

I chose the young and talented Camille Co to do my entourage dresses because I’ve seen her grow as a designer–I’ve worked with Camille a million of times for Chalk, the magazine I handle, and for the celebrities I style. Cam and I collaborated on the designs and based each piece for my girls and their personality. I wanted them to feel gorgeous and comfy on that day too because they are my girls after all!

Like I said in my speech at the wedding, I was not the type who daydreamed of my wedding when I was a little girl. But if there was one aspect that I’ve thought of maybe since I was not so little anymore it would be my wedding gown. Being part of the fashion industry, I am very fortunate to touch base and experience working with great minds and wonderful talent. Soon after Raoul proposed, I knew I had to meet and collaborate with Puey Quinones for my wedding gown. I’ve been a fan of his since I can remember searching for bridal gowns and I knew I had to be a Puey bride! Wearing your wedding gown is really one of the best and most memorable experiences in the world–I never wanted to take it off!
