    A Dreamy Blue Grey, Terra Cotta Infused Cliff-Top Styled Shoot in the Philippines

    Wow, the elements of this styled shoot truly blew us away! From the pebble beach and the crashing waves to the lush forests and dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean, there is no better backdrop than Mother Nature. Completing this look are the bride and groom’s outfits, including the bride’s long train and veil, which helped to add serenity and dreaminess to the overall effect. We love the chic use of the geometric arch, not to mention the terra cotta cutlery and crockery, and the blue grey touches for a pop of colour. Kudos to Cuckoo Cloud Concepts for making this happen, together with the beautiful florals by Vatel Manilla, and…

    Air Jordan Themed Wedding

    This couple really shared their Air Jordan obsession with their guests on their big day. Look at the bridal bouquet made out of shoelaces and miniature polymer clay versions of Nike Air Jordan shoes, as well as the shoe centerpieces. It seriously made us wonder how big their sneaker collection is. EVENTually put together an awesome team for this, including Vatel Manila and Wedoitforlove. Barbie: “Both of us are avid sneaker fans so it kind of went without saying that we would incorporate sneakers into our theme. We love watching basketball too, but it still came as a surprise when Jay proposed to me during halftime at a Lakers game.…

    Urban Chic Wedding

    We’re impressed by how elegant the gate of Enderun looks, standing tall with the big courtyard and palm trees. It does look like one of those celebrity mansions in LA. Toto Villaruel sent us this beautiful set of wedding photos. The dusty pink flowers and gown are a perfect choice for an urban chic wedding, while the hand painted floral wedding cake looks really gorgeous. We also like the fact that Starbucks and Krispy Kreme put in a special appearance. Sometimes, it is just nice to include something “common” in your wedding. It adds some sort of identity to your wedding day. It should be all about you anyway. Watch…
