Fun, carefree, and vibrant are words that come to mind in describing today’s beautiful bohemian inspired wedding. Bathed in raw, earthy vibe, DIY touches and generous use of boho chic decors, Jake and Bea’s wedding is a rich source of off beat, alternative wedding details.
Some deets to check out are: the dream catchers used as reception décor, jam spreads as favors, the long wooden tables with burlap runners, couple’s chairs decorated with leis of kalachuchi, greens and colorful ribbons, and the wheel barrow used in the booze bar.
Lovely Wednesday to us, cherries! Here’s the rest of this boho-beautiful bash! Enjoy!

Coined as Star Wars Day , May 4 is observed as a holiday by all Star Wars fans across the globe. While “May 4th be with you” is over, the Force is still strong amongst us today as I bring you this amazing Star Wars inspired post wedding photo shoot captured by Tim Souza.
Borne out of common love for the franchise, couple Justin and Ruth teamed up with family and friends years after their wedding to stage this awesome Star Wars inspired styled shoot, and oh boy, they did not fail!
Details such as the use of light sabers, Princess Leia and Padme inspired frocks and hairstyles, and of course, the presence of Darth Vader and Kylo Ren will make any Star Wars fan swoon with inspiration.
Here’s what the photographer Tim has to say about the shoot, “The force is strong with Justin and Ruth O’Donnell so it only made sense they come together with family and friends for an out of this world themed wedding shoot. Ruth says that one of the things that first drew her to Justin was that he got all of her Star Wars references. So with a little help they had the shoot of their dreams. While things were mostly light hearted there was without a doubt a presence from the dark side. Yes, Darth Vader and Kylo Ren were both there to lend their support. Throw in a couple of light sabers and you have a dream come true.”
A black and white wedding will always be a classic. The stark contrast between these two monochromatic hues bring about a stylish, timeless vibe which reminds me so much of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Coco Chanel. So lucky that today’s couple, Brian and Joanarc, were uber chic to use this theme and even added touches of champagne in the color palette to come up with a fashion forward wedding for us to swoon over.
“We wanted to keep the wedding simple and elegant since it is a celebration of our marriage witnessed by close friends and family. We limited the colors to black, white, and champagne, to create a modern feel but we filled the venue with flowers and lights to evoke a feeling of coziness – we wanted everything to be chill, for the guests to feel relaxed and for everyone, including us, to have fun.” the bride, Joanarc shares.
She continues, “We met in college. We’re both taking up Journalism at the University of Sto. Tomas. We were friends and hang out with the same group but we became close during our last year in college. We were both in problematic relationships and commiserated with each other. We stayed close until after graduation, getting coffee and drinking after work but it wasn’t until three years after graduation when we first kissed. We’ve been together ever since. 🙂 We had a year and a half to prepare so it was relatively easy. Also, I think we had an advantage because I work in PR so I handle a lot of events. My mom helped with the venue, I looked for our florist, wedding coordinator, the photographer, and the videographer. Brian looked for the band and handled the technical stuff.” Indeed, great things happen when you get all the help you need in wedding preparations!
Elegantly captured by Toto Villaruel, this wedding is oozing with all the right kinds of chic. Go get a handful, cherries! Enjoy!
