Eternally Elegant

If you’ve followed our blog for quite some time now, or have been with us since day one (that’s about four years) then you’ll understand how today is pretty much a big deal in Bride and Breakfast history. I have been a huge fan of Jose Villa, a renowned international wedding photographer, but I never imagined having the privilege of blogging about his work. So I guess you know where this is going! Yup, for the first time ever, we have a Jose Villa wedding on B&B! Though the photographer is not from the Philippines, today’s groom is Filipino.

Darren and Yvette celebrated their big day in a pool of elegance and exquisiteness (excuse me while I put back my jaw in place). The neutral tones, hints of blacks and gold accents reflected the epitome of timeless beauty. Yvette was a vision and wore the most ravishing and uniquely understated piece by Olivia Couture. Paired with a simple and elegant high bun and shoes that are to die for, she looked beyoooond stunning! And let’s also not forget how Darren was just so suave in his J.Crew tux. The couple weren’t the only ones that dressed beautifully. It’s kind of impossible not to notice those breathtaking sequined bridesmaid dresses that gave a glamorous feel to the whole event. And if you think we’re done raving, you are mistaken. We are simply smitten over the graphic design monogram, calligraphy details, gold foiling and wax stamping used by the couple in their decorative mirror stands, table numbers, trinkets and menu. Everything just blended in harmonious happiness with the amazing architecture.

I could go on and on and on about how much I adore this wedding, but it would be a crime for me to delay your chance of being swooned to the moon and back by today’s romantic chic celebration. Yes Darren and Yvette, best day ever!
