Happy Friday cherries! 🙂 I just love weddings that have character. These weddings are usually the most thought of, not necessarily the ones that are planned the longest, but usually the ones that are true product of labor of love. Today’s feature is that kind of wedding, and here are the 4 reasons why I love it:
1. This wedding has an unusual theme. In a vast sea of pretty-pastel, vintage-y themed weddings, I find this one a breather. Throw me something unique and I’m sold!
2. This wedding has some seriously beautiful and unique bouquets. Apples and flowers for the bridal bouquet? Brilliant! Twigs and dried flowers for the maids? Innovative!
3. The bride is DIY-savvy. Okay, I admit I have a soft spot for DIY-savvy brides. The love, time and effort you put in a project is just PRICELESS. I very well know how hard it is to DIY your own wedding, and for you to execute it very well – hands-down – your wedding deserves
much all attention.
4. This wedding overflows with love and wow-worthy photos. The discerning lens of the fab CamZar Photography was able to document each lovely, handmade detail and capture the out pour of love and affection of the couple and their guests.
Now, the love story part (I know you’re waiting for this. Yay! ). Jezreal (Real to her friends) and Eric shared quite a history together. They were childhood friends and church mates at the same time. Got separated for some time and met again in college when Eric’s turtle was due to lay eggs. He specifically looked for Real, knowing that his childhood friend has pursued Veterinary medicine. Little did he know that this seemingly random act would pave way for something more special. 🙂
The proposal of Eric was simple and heartfelt. For all its worth, I still believe, nothing beats that kind of proposal – EVER. He surprised Real on her birthday with a ring and popped the question in front of their family and friends. Real still remembers it dearly, “Sobrang nakakatuwa and nakakakilig!”. Being a hands-on bride, she DIY-ed most of the wedding details and poured love and effort to every project. She shares, “I made the boutonnieres, the peacock feather, the flower fairy cones… our entourage bouquet is DIY-ed with the help of my relatives. My wedding bouquet is also DIY, made by my husband’s uncle which consists of real apples and wild plants. The table names are also DIY with our pet pictures and their names. The secondary sponsor’s earrings and fans are made with feathers.”
Rustic goodness at its best, here’s Real & Eric’s Enchanted Forest Wedding! 🙂
