Enamored by the Philippine terno’s elegance and timelessness, Bride Renee has always envisioned a Filipiniana Wedding. In wedding planning, as in any life endeavor, where there is a clear vision, there is a clear direction!
The terno turned out to be everything she wanted: “minimalist, non-conformist, and modern.” She also couldn’t imagine her groom Fritz wearing anything else at their wedding aside from the Barong Tagalog. For her entourage, Renee specifically chose a barong and pants combo, to showcase empowered, strong, and independent Filipinas.
To complete the bride’s look is a bouquet of sampaguita, the country’s national flower, that also signifies purity and simplicity. This element was a perfect match to the bride’s simple yet radiant hair and makeup, too!
Finally, their engagement ring is a family heirloom, a symbol faithful to the Filipino’s reverence to family ties. The ceremony was intimate, attended only by their families and best friends. In true Filipino fashion, the celebration closed with feasting and dancing! Check out this symbolic Filipiniana wedding captured by Pearl Studio!
