When your fiancé proposes to you at a castle and you have your engagement photoshoot on the streets of New York, you can bet that the anticipation and excitement for your wedding day is going to be through the roof. Giordan and Janine definitely executed a wedding that holds up to the earlier chapters of their love story. In 2018, Giordan professed his love and proposed to Janine at the Castello di Amorosa in Napa Valley and their engagement photoshoot was afterwards held in New York City–seemingly tough acts to follow, but the couple chose to hold their Manila wedding at the timeless Champagne Room in historic Manila Hotel. If that’s not a no-fail way to have an elegant wedding, we don’t know what is.
Photographer Myio Okamoto captured the glamor of the day. Bride Janine knew what she was doing when she decided to keep everything from the venue to the fashion for the day absolutely classic: An ivory white lace wedding gown, white satin robes, gold satin bridesmaids gowns, white rose bouquets, a black tuxedo for groom Giordan, and the elegance of the Champagne Room and Manila Hotel to frame it all. Notice that the gold satin of the bridesmaids’ gowns echoes the golden color of champagne–perfectly thought out, no?
