Summer. Don’t you just love the sound of that? Well, I’m pretty sure you’ll love more what it looks like. And today you are in luck for I’ll show you a beautiful wedding with the yummiest summer color shades that will warm your giddy-hearts with delight. We are so lucky that Ryan and Ica made sure they had the most delectable wedding color palette of Aqua, Peach, Coral, Pink and Mint. If these hues do not remind you of Summer, I don’t know what else will. Nothing else will be more refreshing than a carefully put-together color palette, where bolder hues blend and complement with the softer shades.
It is equally remarkable that Ryan and Ica entrusted their wedding photographs with Rex Carrascoso of We Do It For Love. We have Rex to thank for each and every of the beautiful imagery in this set. Don’t you just love how the softest hint of his retro photography style enhanced the colors and made everything look more enticingly beautiful? Let the rest of Ryan and Ica’s Summer fete wedding remind you of the warm days ahead! Enjoy! :)
Ooopsie! Don’t you dare miss Ryan and Ica’s uber cool SDE by Ian Cruz Films! Blink 182′s playing! How awesome is that?!!

A 1998 contemporary film adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel, Great Expectations tells the tale of the hapless Finn (Pip) as a painter in New York as he pursues his unrequited and haughty childhood love for Estella.

Truth be told, when I think of Great Expectations, I think of Miss Havisham, the feisty, eccentric, wealthy benefactress of Estella. She’s one of the significant movers of this story, carefully influencing the lives of both Finn (Pip) and Estella. And crazy as it may sound, I’m deriving my wedding inspiration today from her, and I call the Miss Havisham style as “A Beautiful Mess.” It is a beautiful mix of vintage vibe and a raw and carefree style. This style follows no strict rules, no patterns, just an authentically raw style that is both romantic and subdued.
Think of old, open-spaced venues or halls or gardens, the rays of sunlight lighting the space within. Think of long wooden tables, left bare or covered with simple tablecloth, adorned by greens and very minimal florals. Think of vintage lace wedding dress and a simple bridal bouquet in shades of blush and cafe au lait. Think of old books and of calligraphy. Simple and romantic. The Great Expectations inspired wedding is a quiet, intimate celebration of love, where the aura is heartfelt, pure and true.

Sun, sea and sand. What could be lovelier than having all these 3 present on your wedding day? Well, Owen and Leah decided to combine all three, held their wedding at the breathtaking shores of Boracay – no less – and squeezed in some bright lemon yellow palette to come up with the most heartfelt, intimate wedding you’ll see.
I’m quite taken at how evident the out pour of happiness and of love that day. The bride Leah was radiantly beautiful in her lace wedding dress, and I especially love how elegantly simple her calla lily bouquet was. She was a picture, in every sense, of a blushing bride most specially as she walked down that aisle to meet her dashing groom.
You could easily spot an intimate celebration when you see one, because in lieu of too much wedding details, there you’ll find an endless stretch of stolen glances, of infectious smiles, of soft whispers and of guests reeling in the magic of THE moment. And for me, this kind of wedding is the most romantic one.
We are just so fortunate that Vj and Vinz Matias of Rockin’ Photographers were able to capture all the love as they unravel in Owen and Leah’s wedding. And I love how they have truly captured the very essence of this celebration.
Your day is just about to get better, cherries because this Boracay wedding will send you the sweetest dreams of summer. Dream away! :)
