Paris Pretty

When Ernest Pascual of Events! Events!, one of the most in-demand coordinators in the industry, sent me some wedding goodness, I knew it would be fab. I was wrong. Fabulous is definitely an understatement. I can totally relate to Dorothy when she received those sparkling ruby red pumps. Goodbye Kansas City, Hello OZ!!!

With a Paris-pretty theme, Patrick and Angela’s wedding is one of those that scream out covet-worthy ideas. Who wouldn’t love a gown that will make anyone go for a second, third and fourth look, and details that are classy, romantic and boldly fierce? Not to mention that red is actually one of the hardest colors to pull off. It’s a good thing that with a stylish couple and their dream team, anything is possible.

From the bride:

Patrick wanted to give me the wedding of my dreams. The theme, colors, flowers, were based on all of my favorite things: Red, Paris, Roses. I partly grew up in Montreal, Quebec, hence my love of everything French. I have never personally been to Paris, thus I wanted to bring a piece Paris to my wedding.

The monogram P stands for Paris and Patrick, while the Eiffel Tower was made to look like an A for Angela. It was initially drawn by a friend then digitally re-created by our coordinator Ernest Pascual. Ernest and I brainstormed on the details, and we came up with the table names being monuments in Paris while the napkin holders had french phrases. I gave our florist/stylist Jo Claravall pegs of Chateau Versailles and various red flower arrangements and with that he made my vision into reality.

My favorite part of the wedding was walking down the aisle. When Ernest opened the door, I just saw Patrick and no one else. The moment was surreal beyond words. This is going to sound super corny but me and Patrick have been together for 10 years, and half of that was long distance. I felt like the long journey was over and we were to start a new one—together.

The Look




    Nostalgic for Napa

    Holidays are always a treat! And speaking of treats, that’s exactly what B&B has for you today. If you remember, quite a few weeks back we featured this unbelievable wedding trailer. And now, jumping out the pages of a fairytale book, Andrew and Coral’s big day is definitely every girl’s fantasy wedding. Of course with every dream wedding comes dream wedding suppliers. We expected no less than to be awe-inspired knowing our B&B fave, Pat Dy worked his magic alongside the top names in the international photography scene such as Bambi Cantrell and Joe Buissink.

    Once upon a time in a land called Napa Valley, there was a beautiful bride and a dashing groom… (the pictures will tell the rest of the story).

    …and they lived happily ever after.

    Perfect Pier Pair

    Let’s go on an adventure today. But first we need to go over the checklist. Fun destination? CHECK! Talented photographer? CHECK! Vintagely chic outfits? CHECK! Now, if only we had a couple who is not afraid to get their feet wet (literally!)… OH WAIT!!! We actually do. Mark and Trisha’s fun-in-the-sun engagement hoopla is ready to start.

    Green Gorgeousness

    Pretty pretty wedding, I utterly loveth thee! For a hundred reasons, but here’s a few…for your ravishingly elegant gown, and those too-cute-for-words little boy’s outfits, that charming and laid back set-up and the green gorgeousness all around. There are days that I could go on and on about these beautiful things. But now it’s time for you to see Jojo and Myra’s wedding for yourself.

    Kota Kinabalu, I Heart YOU

    It’s Monday so I have an excuse to go all out! Besides when it comes to Mayad Studios, it’s hard to wait till tomorrow to show you some AMAZINNNG work. I love, love, love wedding trailers. My only regret about this trailer was it wasn’t mine! This one is exciting, romantic and all passion! Gorgeous couple Soffian and Jeanna rocked this one.
