Tales of Sophistication and Romance

There is perhaps no better pairing than the mix of modern treatment and classic details. John and Melissa’s wedding was a breath of fresh air with the beautiful elements of lace, pearls, and crystals. It was a marvelous affair of elegance and softness married in sophisticated styling. The pigeonholes with the guests’ seat cards were a nice touch, and the little notes inside them even sweeter. I would’ve loved opening an envelope with my name and seat number! Maybe just as much as I would’ve enjoyed writing a love note to hang on the little plant.

I really just pored over and adored every detail, from the vintage-chic frames to the pretty blooms and the stylish typography (designed by Fozzy of The Fozzy Book, who also did B&B’s logo!)–everything was utterly romantic and classy. Revel in the images below–a perfectly captured, framed, and lit photo story by Jeff and Lisa Photography–and bask in the wonderful, wonderful feeling of enduring love and style.

The Fun and Fantastical

Welcoming our week is a slew of brilliant colors and fanciful details in a wedding that looks like a scene right out of a Fantastic Mr. Fox sequel! If you haven’t seen the movie, I suggest you do. Two good reasons: George Clooney and Meryl Streep! Just as the film was threaded together by dashing wit and a whimsical spirit, so was Pancho and Cha-Cha’s wedding sewn together. MangoRed did an awesome job of capturing the colorful character of the event, adding their own brand of quirk that is so uniquely them.

Sweet charming details were mixed with the playful company of little animals, with the spotlight on the polar bear boutonnière of the groom! I really love how the bride and groom had a hand at designing and putting together the details of wedding. How amazing were the little portrait giveaways? The bride drew and painted each one! It is such a creative way to share the love.

Now have a break with us and take a step back from manic as we present you with a marvelous Monday. Cheers!

The Grandeur of Glamour

Long-time sweethearts Carlo and celebrity stylist Kat tie the knot in a fête that is flush with sophisticated details and unbridled merriment. Old elegance and luxurious glamour was executed in tasteful restraint (I loved the almost-modest brooches on the bouquets and fascinators)! The rich berry hues and string of pearls on the entourage were gorgeous–they were the perfect supporting act to the bridal gown which was absolutely breathtaking!

I have always adored Jun Escario creations. With the exquisite bodice of intricate beading, and a soft tulle that delicately wraps around the neck and shoulders, this one is no exception! Just thinking about it makes my heart race! Photographer Nelwin Uy, notorious for catching beautiful candids, captured all the best laughs, tears, and stolen moments in Kat and Carlo’s special day.

Feast your eyes on this beautiful affair which, I’m pretty sure those in attendance will join in saying, is one to remember.

Sweet Simplicity

There really is a novelty to be found in simplicity. Junn and Loura’s big day was celebrated in an intimate affair with their nearest and dearest. Cuckoo Cloud Concepts did a great job of infusing charming details to the reception’s relaxed atmosphere, and created a jolly party of pinwheels, chrysanthemums, cupcake towers, and a cart of sweet treats! How delightful! My personal favorites were the banderitas and polaroid photos strung around the venue. I thought it gave an even more personal feel to the vintage setup!

Breathe in inspiration and take in the details as you let this wedding show you how a handful of imagination and hearts full of love can take you a long way.

P.S. – Didn’t you just love the bride’s little white dress and the groom’s bow tie & suspenders??

An Enchanted Garden Affair

What better way to greet our midweek than with an array of dreamy photos from J Lucas Reyes! He does it again, capturing a softness in the sunlight for a just-the-right-amount-of-sunnyness feel in the photos. Gerard and Vanessa’s wedding was a picture-perfect afternoon with details of wood endearingly juxtaposed to the lush green setting. I also absolutely adored the floral arrangements of Vatel Manila–it did a stunning job of pulling together a look of country charm and sophistication. The pops of yellows, peaches, and blush served such a refreshing gulp of greenery goodness! Altogether, everything looked magical and right out of a storybook.

Step into these pages and delight in a little whimsy this sunny Wednesday.
