Some wedding inspirations never get old. The Vintage Travel theme is by far, among the ranks of most popular wedding themes because of this reason: it never fails to evoke that familiar sense of nostalgia and that eagerness of discovering new places. Makes it THE perfect inspiration for all romantic couples who love the nice and quiet that this theme brings.
Today’s couple Jobe and Apple lovingly chose this theme for their engagement shoot and they nailed to a T!
Apple shares,”We love adventures and we love to travel! We got engaged last year on our 6th anniv at Ilocos where we had our Ilocandia Tour. On every occasion, birthday and anniversaries, we made sure to explore new places together.”
Full of romantic, nostalgic little deets, and captured oh-so-wonderfully by the bride’s brother, Pat Buenaobra, I’m sure this set of Vintage Travel inspired e-sesh will make you want to snuggle while drinking that hot cup of cocoa. Just what we need for cold nights like tonight!
Here’s the rest of Jobe and Apple’s engagement shoot. Enjoy!

Oh yes, this is a new post. You’re not dreaming and this is not my ghost writing. I am actually back! Yaaaay!!! To all who missed me *sniff* (you’re all too sweet!), I missed you all so much too! Tee-hee! Okay, let’s do the catching up later, and let’s all get back to blogging-about-gorgeous-weddings first.
I thought I owed you BIG time dear cherries, for being absent for so long, that I decided I would save and give you something swoon-worthy when I return. Definitely all sorts of stunning, Feli and Jo-ann’s wedding is something you’ll never tire of gushing over. It has the right mix of fashion, flair, elegance and simplicity. It has the makings of timeless and the lovely snaps by Pat Dy has documented very well that timelessness.
I think it’s best that we hear first hand from the bride herself — so here’s Jo-ann — on her thoughts on how a strong bond with Feli brought them together in marriage and how she made their wedding day extra special:
“Feli and I have been dating for 7 years. We both love to travel and we both like good food. Usually the highlight in all our travels abroad are the really nice restos we get to visit. We pretty much are on the save wavelength when it comes to values and how we wanted our life to be. However our personalities are entirely different. I am high strung, talkative, very passionate and has a strong personality while he is silent, soft spoken and very passive. I think it pretty much is the reason why we click because we rarely clash.”
“He proposed in a suite at their Sulo Riviera Hotel. Ever since our first visit to Antonio’s during our first year of dating, we knew that Antonio’s was the perfect place to host our intimate wedding reception. We loved Antonio’s garden feel, the black and white tiled floor, it’s homey but elegant feel and the perfect Tagaytay weather. We are also foodies so it is important to us that the food served for our wedding guests is excellent.
Henry Pascual and I focused on modern, chic, minimal but gorgeous flowers to style the beautiful Antonio’s restaurant. We chose purple, pink, white and green flowers.”
“As for the theme and motif, I wanted a modern but whimsical feel to the wedding so I chose grey and peach for the bridesmaids gowns. I came across June Pugat’s Spring/Summer collection 2013 while browsing through a fashion blog. I was blown away by his talent in hand painting gowns. Without any hesitation, I sent him an e-mail right away. It was a very memorable collaboration with June. My girls had the most unique, couture gowns for the wedding.”
“My non-negotiables were Pat Dy, Mayad and Veluz. Pat Dy for his classic, elegant photography style, Mayad for their romantic and cinematic shots and Veluz, how can you not love Veluz? Her dedication to her craft, the beautiful and intricate gown embroidery of pearls, sequins and swarovskis, and most of all, the signature Veluz illusion back.
Overall, it was a beautiful wedding. I could not thank Jody Liwanag of Events Experts and her team enough for the perfect execution from the church ceremony down to the wedding reception.”
I’m really excited to share with you this engagement shoot set as this is my first time to feature a Ting hun (Chinese engagement party). This celebration symbolizes the formal acceptance of the new son/daughter-in-law in both families and it so evident how culturally rich and intimate this celebration is.
Borly and Chanty’s Ting hun as captured by Rex Carrascoso of We Do It For Love is filled with lively colors, symbolic little details and a loving ceremony rich with tradition. The photos are so vibrant and alive, each one actually looks like a movie clip! Be ready to be mesmerized cherries, here’s the rest of this engagement party! Enjoy!
