Pretty Purple Fever

Whether it be lavender, violet, purple, or other variations of the shade, this royal palette is certainly very popular for 2010. It seems like brides are loving this color, and why wouldn’t they? It is youthful, vibrant and eye-catching! Here’s another wedding that got into the purple fever.

Christian and Erin’s wedding was everything grand! The bride’s gown was full of exquisite detail and of course a big, beautiful skirt.

Celebrations are fun, joyous and full of excitement. However, there are times when the road we take to get there can be bumpy and testing. The bride Erin unfortunately had to come to terms with the painful loss of her father to cancer a few months before the wedding. Ernest Pascual, their coordinator shares: “I know it was a difficult thing to go through for Erin. I decided to surprise her by attaching a locket pendant with a photo of her dad to her bouquet. She carried a memory of him as she walked down the aisle.”

I just love these shots with the pinstripe background! Christian’s tux was sleek and fashionable! Way to go groom!

And yes when I said purple fever, I really meant it!!! Well, in my opinion, it would be senseless to do things half-baked. So Christian and Erin took the “no holds barred” road not-so-often travelled. Badang Rueda translated the vineyard vision into reality. Majestic and lush, you can’t help but feel you’re in a royal banquet!

I know I usually give you something from the bride. But today, I wanted to add in a little twist. Ernest Pascual, one of the in-demand coordinators in the industry shared with B&B his personal experience with this wedding.

I love it when I see the couple’s glow on their wedding. I feel giddy when they get excited even during my presentation of ideas for their wedding. I make it a point to immerse myself getting to know the couple so I could present ideas which are unique at the same time reflective of the their personalities. As mushy as it may sound, I love the way how a client-supplier relationship suddenly turns into a wonderful friendship. Up to this day, I am still in touch with couples, of which, I have coordinated weddings more than a decade ago.

During our meetings I got to know Erin and Christian in a personal level, realizing how simple and easy they were to please. They are just the type of couple whom you want to give more, simply because they appreciate the time and effort to come up with these ideas. When I presented the mock-up of the invitations, they could not stop raving about it and staring at the invitation. The bride’s mom who was around shed a few tears too. Through their wedding, I was reminded of the importance of family. That no matter what happens, your family will be the only thing left with you. My dad, who happens to help me out in my business, is a hardworking man. I took time out after the wedding of Erin and Christian to thank him for all the help he has extended in my business and coming up with details for my weddings.
