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!
