Filipearl & Bren’s Pretty Pops of Pink Wedding by Paopao Sanchez

Pearl & Bren-550

We all need a good dose of pink in our lives so I’m sending you lots today! Hey, even Audrey Hepburn believed in pink, right?

Pearl & Bren-428

Splashed in different shades of pink — with bird cage details, at that — this wedding will definitely satiate your pink cravings. Check out the bridal shoes, the flowers, the bridesmaids’ dresses, the cake — and oh, even the bride’s lippie! — all these have that lovely touch of our favorite color. Another noteworthy deet to watch out for is the bride’s stunning gown by Lord Maturan. So much gorgeousness in one dress, I should say!

Thanks so much to the bride, Filipearl for sharing these awesome snaps by Paopao Sanchez. She even shared about their love story and wedding highlights!

Filipearl shares that their love story wasn’t the easy one. It started out rough and didn’t go about the traditional wooing stage. They even had to work miles apart just as she and Bren were starting their relationship. But, all’s well that ends well. After years of seemingly endless pursuit and of Bren making amends with Filipearl’s family, it all ended up with a pamanhikan in Filipearl’s hometown in Masbate… with Bren formally asking her hand in marriage.

Filipearl continues, “It wasn’t until our wedding day, that my brother finally accepted Bren and his family. I thought he won’t attend our wedding. To our surprise, he made a tearful speech in front of me, Bren and our guests telling them how he tried to break us apart. From the horse’s mouth, he said in the start of his speech, “In every love story, there is antagonist. I will not tell you who the antagonist was but for those who know their love story, you know who’s the kontrabida.” He also asked for our forgiveness and cried his heart out amidst the emotional crowd.

Our wedding motif is blush pink and our theme is bird cage which is evident from our wedding invitation, cake, boutonniere, wedding favor and reception décor.

My younger brothers whom we fondly call “The 3 Musketeers” serenaded us and Bren’s siblings surprised us with mob dance together with their friends. Overall, the wedding was full of laughter, forgiveness and tears.”

Cheers to love stories that end in happily ever after! 🙂

Shy & Ian’s Intimate Batanes Wedding by We Do It For Love

ian-amp-shy-12_zps5t7xta2c

There are lots of gorgeous wedding spots here in the Philippines but Batanes is just a cut above the rest. With its unmistakable charm and magic, Batanes sweeps you off your feet and makes you fall helplessly in love with it. The place is beyond beautiful — the hands of God working wonderfully in every mountain curve your eyes can see, in every grass blade that touches your feet, in every breath of its clean, crisp air. It’s no surprise that couple Ian and Shy decided to join hearts in this breathtakingly romantic and magical place.

Ian and Shy’s love story took 15 wonderful years to make. They got engaged 5 years ago, until recently, they finally decided to get married in Batanes. It only took less than 3 months of careful, meticulous wedding planning and everything was set! The couple invited 33 of their family and closest friends to celebrate their union and have a fun-filled, relaxing day with them.

The bride Shy even had the greatest surprise of the day when she invited singer Johnoy Danao, Ian’s favorite, to be their wedding singer. Ian was heartbroken thinking that Johnoy was already booked on their wedding day and couldn’t get him. But surprise! It was Shy who booked him for the day! Everyone got to their groove and danced the night away! Oh. That special moment when you dance with your one true love under the stars — another piece of forever etched in your memory.

Thanks to their friend Rex of We Do It For Love for capturing all the love that day and sharing these stunning photos for us to admire! Here’s the full set of Ian and Shy’s intimate Batanes wedding… Cheers!

Tanya & Mark’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Engagement by Paopao Sanchez

2016-04-27_0042

 Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
 Nor hath love’s mind of any judgement taste; Wings and no eyes figure unheedy haste.
 And therefore is love said to be a child, because in choice he is so oft beguiled.

Full of enchanted forest feel, hazy starry night sky, and mystical garden vibe, Mark and Tanya’s engagement photo shoot is, in every inch, a breathtaking night to remember. This delightfully charming set styled by Geof Lagria reminded me so much of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. With it’s deep berry and forest green color palette + whimsical trinkets (the bird’s nest, naked cake and berries), get ready to be transported to a charming night of love and magic!

There was an abundant use of chunks of woods and moss that evoked an earthy, whimsy feel and I super love that Geof showered the place with dozens of fairy lights that reminded me so much of fireflies! What a magical night indeed!

Gorgeously captured by Paopao Sanchez, get ready to be swept off your feet with these stunning photos! Enjoy this set, cherries! Cheers!
