Push the Button

One of the most neglected details of the groom and his entourage is the wedding boutonniere. But oh what wonders this little guy can do to the men’s attire. Not only does it serve as great detail for your wedding photo, it’s also fun, different and very stylish. I am personally loving the non-floral boutonniere cause it’s definitely DIY possible. Take a look!

Yummy, Youthful and Yellow

Since we’ve been having super sunny days lately, I think it would be appropriate to feature a sunshine-filled wedding. With bursts of yellow and an extremely radiant bride, this wedding is everything happy, bright and fun. Another thing to love about this wedding is that the couple, John and Criselle made it a point to show their personalities, exercise their creativity, and maximized their resources to achieve the wedding they’ve always dreamed of.  Key word: FOOD!

From the bride:

From the beginning, we wanted to work on a theme, not just a color theme; but a theme that speaks of us. We are quite opposites. I am more loud and experimental, John is a bit more serious and conventional. John plays golf, I love to sing. I hate sports, he hates dancing and singing. It started as if there was no common thing we both liked until we realized we just had it right under our nose—John and I love going to the market, eating, cooking and exploring new recipes and personalizing them. So we ended up with the kitchen theme.

To start off, we had our engagement shoot in Robinsons supermarket and a kitchen. Our invite was also quite different, I had a friend create the copy for us. The design had pans and aprons and kitchen stuff on it. Our souvenirs were silver spoons and forks and the backdrop we used for our photobooth had scribbles of salt and pepper shakers. Instead of numbering our tables, we named them— each table was named with either a spice or a herb. Even our bridal registry list was full of kitchen equipment! Our cake topper was also a miniature version of us wearing chefs hats while holding a golf club and a microphone.

Super South Africa

To kick of our week, let me see a show of hands for those who want to have their wedding somewhere exotic and adventurous? A B&B favorite—Mayad, a local videography company, again gets my vote for coming up with the most artistic international wedding videos. Today’s destination? Johannesburg, South Africa! From music, to angles, to capturing endearing moments of the event (look out for scenes of the bride dancing with her father *tear*), this wedding video deserves three thumbs up!

Videography: Mayad Studios

South Africa, I Love.

Ballet Beauties

Because themed weddings are so in now, I can’t help but share with you this super beautiful style inspiration. It’s not for the faint-hearted, and I am definitely hoping that a bold bride will soon have a wedding look as drop dead pretty as this. This ballet-inspired theme is overflowing with girly gorgeousness. Taken from the Martha Stewart Weddings Spring 2010 edition, this spread speaks volumes on elegance, sophistication and culture. I love theater. I love ballet. I love PINK.

Happy Weekend from Bride and Breakfast!

Be Legendary

I know Bride and Breakfast is all about the pretty. B&B celebrates beauty and love through weddings. Although this video is not the typical clip you often see here, it doesn’t change the fact that it too celebrates love. Weddings can be grand, but marriages can be legendary.

As we take a break from our usual charm-filled weddings, my hope for every bride and groom is that as much effort you put in making your big day as memorable as possible, you would also give a double portion of that energy in making your marriage epic.

This is a video that brought my husband and I to tears. We literally had to give each other a moment to take in the whole thing before we got to talk about what we just watched. Being a cancer survivor myself some 7 years ago, this video struck a chord on finding the perfect person who can brave life with you with constant love and loyalty.

Carefully listen to the dialogue, it may not be pretty… but it is definitely beautiful.

“In my mind and in my heart, there has never been, there is not now and never will be another Annie.”

Loving the Letter L

L can stand for so many things—a lovely bride named LJ and an even lusciously love-filled wedding in Laguna beach. I never thought I would like the letter L so much. And of course, to prove my point I needed to walk the talk. This came the hard part: picking what pictures to post since there are just too many to choose from. Just so you know, our home-grown-super-talented photog Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto is the mastermind behind the amazing shots.

Jimmy and LJ celebrated their union all the way in Laguna Beach, California! Oly describes it as “awesome-tacular”. And awesome and spectacular it really is. With the gorgeous backdrop of the ocean, an intimate celebration with close family and friends, plus the beautiful pop of colors all throughout the celebration, you can’t help but sit back and enjoy this one!

This letter is just too cute for words.

What a jaw-dropping scene. You might just catch yourself drooling over this.

Filipino elements were incorporated in the wedding. As they say You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl.

And if you want some more, check out the on-site video done by the very popular Jason Magbanua.
