You’ve Got to See the Elegant Details of this Bride’s Wedding Gown!

We can’t help but swoon over the dreamy details of Chesca’s wedding gown! She describes it as simple yet sophisticated, and in our opinion, her gown really highlights her natural beauty so well. The accordion pleats on the bodice and rose drapings over the train are the simple details which make the gown stunning. This bride shows us that you can achieve a very sophisticated style even without beading or lace! Chesca’s gown also complemented the entire look and feel of her wedding which had an elegant rustic theme. The combination of wood and plants as decorations, the touches of gold, and the nude, brown, and black palette for the bridesmaids were altogether so pleasing to the eyes. And for more of that rustic charm, festoon lights were cleverly placed to make the event seem as if it were outdoors. Scroll through these shots by Meg and Jane.

This Minimalist Couple had an Intimate and All-White Garden Wedding

Danny and Daphne follow a minimalist lifestyle, keeping only what has value to them. They made sure to apply this same minimalist principle to their big day by inviting only their closest friends, family, and the people who were actual witnesses to their love story. As even their possessions come only in black, white, and gray, the couple opted for white as the dominant motif of their event. The white color scheme definitely highlighted the lush greens of Hillcreek Gardens even more. Decorations were kept minimal and simple, of course, with just greenery as accents for the ceremony area and as runners for the table setup provided by Richgold Weddings. Daphne made sure her wedding dress had the clean and structured aesthetic she envisioned, while Danny, the entourage, and their guests also stayed true to the all-white palette. Get to know more about Danny and Daphne’s intimate garden wedding as you scroll through these photos by The Candid Studios.

See How This Couple Traveled Back in Time for Their Engagement Shoot!

Jon and Doms tell us their beautiful love story by bringing us back in time to when things were slower and life was easier. Because they are so passionate about the Filipino culture and about making past traditions relevant today, it was easy for the couple to pour their hearts out when making their engagement theme work–and we are so glad they did! Everything was so tastefully and mindfully done. They presented their story in chapters: pagtatagpo, pagliligawan, and pagsasama, representing each through simple gestures of love that were relevant to the storyline. All the details were consistent and true to the theme. They even chose Casa de Segunda, the house of Rizal’s first love, as their shoot location so they could really experience and showcase what it was like to fall in love during that time. From the farmlands to the antique Spanish-Filipino houses, the Filipino traditions were highlighted in a way that is fresh, new, and lovable. Scroll through this set from Atlas Studios and get to know the couple more through their answers below!
