Modern Match Made in Manila

When it comes to hair, I tend to stay on the safe side, a classic bun or anything tied. I have great admiration for brides who look good  even without sporting an up do on their wedding day. And wow, this bride really made a statement! From her gown to her accessories to her haircut, I am loving everything. I found myself smiling as I looked at the candid moments captured by the talented Erron Ocampo. If only pictures had sounds, I’m kinda sure I would be hearing laughter, hoots and a cheering crowd. You must see for yourself…

No wonder I loved Denise’s gown, I myself am a huge fan of Amsale. Excellent choice, bride! The headpiece from Lo Boheme makes the outfit look modern, unconventional and fun.

Don’t you think this could totally work as a brilliant ad for oil paper?

Who wouldn’t love a couple as playful as these two?

The bridesmaids looked like pretty tulips against the garden backdrop. Cuteness!

From the bride:

JJ and I are from New York so having the wedding in the Philippines was a huge decision in itself!  Many of our friends have or will be getting married, and none have dared a destination wedding, not to mention one that is all the way on the other side of the world! The wedding was heartfelt and personal to us because we only had 100 guests, which consisted of our closest family and friends. It was a huge blessing to have each and every person there to support and celebrate our marriage with us. Our favorite part of our wedding was definitely seeing all our hard work manifest itself through the venue’s decor and ambiance. While our guests were in a different room for cocktails, our coordinator had us peek through our bridal room window to see the main reception room… and the second we saw it, we were both in awe of how gorgeous it looked! To think that we planned this day for two years, and it came out so beautiful! We loved the dessert buffet setup, especially because we both have sweet teeth. We also wanted a modern but welcoming environment, and instead of a traditional presidential table we opted for a laid back couple’s couch, decorated with lamps highlighting a quirky backdrop. We were so happy with the all of the vendors’ work and talents.

  1. janna,

    thanks for blogging about our wedding! funny that you mentioned my hairdo, i had the hair stylist actually put long extensions on me, but after me and my husband saw how weird i looked, i knew i had to stick to my original hair style. hehe. 🙂

    all the best,

    1. Your hairdo was so unique! It was young and fun. I think it completed the bridal look. I am so glad you said no to the hair extensions. This haircut is a lot more memorable. Thanks you for sharing your special day with Bride and Breakfast. Gorgeous wedding! Congratulations to you both.
