A Scenic Engagement Shoot Off The Shores of Palawan!

Ale and Sab’s engagement shoot is the perfect visual representation of the classic cinematic words “It doesn’t matter where I am, as long as it’s with you.” Coming all the way from Europe, this couple beautifully captured their engagement in the purest blue waters and magnificent backdrops of Coron, Palawan. The pair proved that even the simplest of shoots can manifest true elegance. Sab wore a fiery orange dress and a pretty blue dress that were both complimented by Ale’s timeless white polo. Their beach-chic getup not only brought even more special attention to the couple, but it also gave appreciation to their destination engagement shoot in Palawan. With only the photographer as company, Ale and Sab definitely stood out against the scenery of rock boulders and clear waters, allowing their love to truly shine. These photos by Toto Villaruel look like they were taken out of a movie! Scroll down to see more!

This Couple had a Jay-Z and Beyonce Inspired Wedding and It Looked so Fun!

Today’s wedding feels like it came straight out of a music video! Renz and Joselle are fans of Jay-Z and Beyonce, so when planning their wedding, they simply asked themselves “What would Jay and Bey do?!” Let’s start with the reception details: we’re just in awe with the beautiful lighting. The hanging lights shaped as cubes had such an amazing effect on the entire venue, while the bright lighting design on stage also gave off concert vibes. Even the tables were lit so warmly with several candles and little white lamps. Apart from the glimmering lights, we enjoyed how the bride squad provided eye-catching pops of color in their salmon pink and mustard yellow ensembles. They even wore varying styles, like short dresses, coats, jumpsuits, and long dresses! Although they were in different kinds of outfits, the solid tones of pink and yellow (plus a few purple and green) still made them look consistent with one another. To complement the vibrant colors, the groom’s party took on a neutral palette of nude and green. Renz wore a baby pink suit throughout the event, while Joselle switched to a pink suit to match her groom during the reception. What a stylish way to add color to the event! No doubt everyone had an incredible time celebrating with Renz and Joselle. The couple even went up on stage and performed with the band! Find out more about this fun and energetic wedding celebration as you scroll through these shots by Proud Rad.
