Rob and Dee’s intimate wedding was an extraordinary celebration of love and Filipino culture. Faced with a last-minute designer cancellation (three months before the wedding!), Dee found her dream dress through an impromptu Instagram message to Franko Barrio. Not only did he make room in his busy schedule, but he also reimagined one of his own designs to craft Dee’s dream Filipiniana dress, complete with iconic terno sleeves. The result was a modern masterpiece that became the focal point of their day.
The ceremony, led by the couple’s close friend, honored their global romance that took them from Singapore to European getaways. Family also played a significant role, with Dee’s brother providing piano accompaniments and the bride herself singing a sentimental German song for the groom.
Their wedding also embraced the beauty of nature, with an enchanting ceremony backdrop featuring a stunning panoramic window. Lush, vibrant florals and greenery adorned the tables, creating a botanical haven within the venue.
Every element, from the gorgeous dress to the thoughtfully selected blooms to the personally curated playlist, formed a piece of their romantic narrative. Take a look at their beautiful wedding through these photos captured by Portraits by Bukool.
