I was most surprised to receive this e-mail from one of our readers! I went through the photos and saw something truly fun and magical! We love the chic color combination of the hot pink and black plus the overall “taking care of ‘wedding’ business” feel (see the photo of the male entourage). We’re happy to feature this wedding here on Wedding Belle! Thank you for the support and congratulations to the newlyweds, Jenz and Bry!
Weddings are not complete without the traditional couple pictorial–a themed photoshoot where the couple looks their best before the wedding. It can be romantic, contemplative, or just simple. They can be sent along with the invitations or kept for photo albums and frames for family and friends to see. One couple took it to another level…
A shabby-chic wedding with a little bit touch of vintage. The idea was to feel like you are inside a living room having a tea party. The couple wanted the guests to feel relaxed while having fun at the party. It was unique because it was a wedding made with love. Almost everything that you saw in the wedding was DIY – from the invitations, missalette, centerpiece, photo booth backdrop, activity area, etc. The couple didn’t want to have a typical Chinese wedding especially in terms of the decoration.
On October 27, 2008, Ericka wed Michel after a whirlwind romance and a wedding two months in the making. The ceremony took place at the Christ the King Parish Church in Greenmeadows and the reception followed at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
“I wanted my wedding to be traditional. No beach or garden but a simple church ceremony where I could elegantly walk down the aisle in my Edward Dee dress where I looked like “A Debutante Bride”. It was made of lace that had young and dainty flowers. I had a bow attached to the waistline and had a bubble skirt with gleaming crystals all over. It was truly spectacular!”
“My wedding day was truly magical… Rajo Laurel designed my gown as well as Neil’s barong. We knew there was no one else we wanted, it had to be Rajo. Rita Neri was a blessing as she took care of all the details I wanted for mine and Neil’s magical day.” Neil married Carla at the Sta. Maria della Strada Church and a “RED” inspired reception followed at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel. Carla adds, “I love the boldness of red and I incorporated it to my wedding. The Edsa Shangri-la was beautifully decorated with beautiful red roses as centerpieces and even on the five-tiered wedding cake! It was truly my day!”
Karl and Raiza married on a Sunday in the Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. It was followed by a lavish reception at the Renaissance Hotel. Kristel Yulo, the sister of the bride designed the wedding gown and the whole entourage. Flowers by Margarita Fores and coordinated by Chinkie Agregado.
