Being the content manager for Bride and Breakfast, a big chunk of my job is to scout, review, and write about weddings and all things related to it. So can you just imagine the pressure and excitement I felt when it was my turn to tie the knot?! Inspiration, tips, and ideas just kept coming, and our engagement shoot planning was not spared. Breathtaking destination venues, themes, and gorgeous styling options made it challenging for us to stick to our wedding budget!
So my fiance and I talked and figured out what we both really wanted–a fun, cozy, and authentic engagement shoot that would show off our personalities. We took it from there and started planning one detail at a time. The goal was not to spend so much, but still have a very tasteful and memorable engagement shoot experience. Now, looking at our photos makes us so happy because it reminds us of who we are as a couple, which really should be the purpose of an engagement shoot more than just the aesthetic, right? Here are some tips on how we did it while keeping our wedding budget intact.
An all-white wedding set in the mountains of Tagaytay is what’s in store for you today. This couple had their heart set on holding their special day in Tagaytay Highlands, even before getting engaged. And as you will see in their wedding, having nature as your backdrop for your big day is always a beautiful idea. Speaking of beautiful, their reception styling by Peach Blossoms Florist was too! With the many crystal beads and chandeliers, and the different white flowers hanging from the ceiling, the setup was just so stunning and elegant. Another thing we like about this wedding is how the couple made it feel cohesive through the little elements like the marble detailing that can be found in both their invites and the cake. Keep in mind that the littlest of details can actually make a subtle yet big difference in your wedding. Now have a look at Harold and Joy’s big day through Randolf Evan‘s photos!

Yes, we live in an age where we can bend a lot of the old wedding traditions our parents and grandparents grew up with. But that doesn’t mean that we can completely do whatever we please.

So if you’re looking for some wedding guest do’s and don’ts, or just want to brush up on some etiquette, then keep on reading!
