Their photographer, Pat Dy also did an amazing job capturing these precious moments!

A Beautiful White Wedding

The traditional bride always wears white on her wedding day. But beyond tradition, white is, at its cores, the physical image of light in perfect balance--everything and nothing at the same time. White is the willingness to surrender to purity and joyous weightlessness of being. Taken by itself, it is a blank canvas, a clean slate--simple, fresh, and without adornment; nowhere else is potential and beginning so clearly illuminated.

Paired with green, white is immediately in accord with nature and the home. Matched with silver, it is a statement of understated elegance and undeniable class.

"God paints in many colors; but he never paints so gorgeously--I had almost said 'so gaudily'--as when he paints in white." -G.K. Chesterton

Bold is the Bride Who Chooses Orange

Happiness and adventure are hers whose vitality and enthusiasm for life are reflected in the hues around her. Orange combines the passion of red and the cheer of yellow, rendering it one of the most vibrant colors to play around with. And orange-toned wedding is always a fun occasion, filled with energy, warmth and bundles of surprises.

While orange is often striking enough to stand alone, shades of brown, butterscotch and light green are ideal counterparts to help soften its look.

"Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow." -Kandinsky

Imagine a wedding with people closest to your heart, beneath a trellis of verdant foliage and flowers bursting with a riotous profusion of color.

Feminine and Sweet Lavender Wedding

Inherently sweet and feminine, the color and scent of Lavender in a wedding is redolent of romance and nostalgia, softness and grace. And yet, diluted from the majestic purple, lavender remains, by this image, on of blood with royalty. Lighter in shade and deceptively fragile, lavender is the unassuming and gentler countenance of nobility. To the viewer, it is simplicity and refinement, town and country, and poise and culture, all in one glance.

Complemented with the natural hues of mauve, brown or yellow, the color lavender brings a light and casual yet always sophisticated impression to every affair.

"While purple is the color of royalty, lavender is the color of femininity. It's a grown-up pink." - Jacci Howard Bear

Lavender, after all, is the gentle cousin of majestic purple, that color which in ancient times was so difficult to obtain and so expensive to produce that it was reserved for royalty.

A Wedding In Red

A wedding in red is, above all, a celebration of love. We woo, we bleed, and we fall in love with all the fierceness and passion of red. For different cultures, the color red means different things. In China, it is a symbol of good luck, always present in every ceremony. In India, it is the color of purity, held sacred in weddings. For the rest of us, its richness never fails to command our attention and make our hearts beat faster. Red evokes majesty, strength, grandeur, and opulence. Paired with either shades of black, gold, or white, red is a fitting emblem of love that is absolute, powerful and enduring.

"When in doubt, wear red." - Bill Blass

Vivid and powerful. Rich and eloquent.

How can our eyes fail to be ensnared by the color we designate to represent it? The result is a magnificent vision in red that is as rich and unique as the love that inspires it.

May every bride experience joy, excitement, and inspiration as she prepares to celebrate what will be, literally and figuratively, a red-letter day of her life.

A Wedding Inspired by Cherry Blossoms

Since it's the season of cherry blossoms, I thought of creating inspirations for a cherry blossom-themed wedding. This theme is actually too pink for me, but I cannot deny that I find these charming and sweet. If you are a bride who likes pink then this might be a good inspiration for you on your wedding, though I am not quite sure that your groom might agree. 

You can pick a venue that actually has cherry trees as it provides the perfect backdrop, or have your bridesmaids wear dresses that remind you of these lovely flowers. Don't forget to pick table decor that use cherry blossoms. 

You can also have some white ones and use it as hair ornament, if you do not want to get overboard with the color pink. If you cannot find a venue with cherry trees, like if you live in a country that doesn't grow these, you can decorate you venue with light pink colors reminiscent of cherry blossoms. Your cake can also use some cherry blossoms decor.

Floral Bridesmaid Dresses for Your Spring Wedding

Picking the right dress for your bridesmaids is more fun than you think. From choosing the color to choosing the right design that would fit each of your lovely friends, there is something to enjoy with the task. When I was picking for my bridesmaids, I wanted a dress that they would be comfortable in, plus I want them to look young and fresh. I picked yellow, white and chocolate brown--inspired by sunflowers. 

Still, you don't have to be stuck with this and that color. Nobody said you cannot have your bridesmaids wear prints. Or better yet, floral prints! I was inspired by the photos of cherry blossoms in Japan this season, so I searched for floral bridesmaid dresses and look what I found!

Sexy Wedding Dresses by Maggie Sottero

These dresses are just so lovely that I wish saw them when I was getting married! I would've worn one of these, or worn something inspired by these designs. They are creations of an award-winning designer label Maggie Sottero. Hop on to their website to check more of the designs, but here are my top picks.

A stunning high-low hemline for the fashion forward bride ready to transition from ceremony to celebration. The strapless wedding dress features a sweetheart neckline, ruched bodice, and romantic pick-up skirt. Well, this kind of looks like the dress I wore on my wedding day.

This wedding dress has a modern ball gown look, with folds of organza artfully draped. It also has a detachable ribbon belt, sweetheart neckline and corset closure.

I must say this is my favorite among this collection! It features an A-line skirt with a high slit that falls dreamily from a long fitted bodice with illusion sweetheart neckline. I also love the grosgrain ribbon belt featuring a Swarovski crystal brooch.

Quite the sexiest of them all, this dress boasts dazzling crystals traverse an illusion back in this eye catching gown of Paris Chiffon. I love the sweetheart neckline too!

This sheath wedding dress features Swarovski crystals and sexy plunging V-neckline. The train is so dainty and light too--which may make this perfect for a beach wedding.

I am a fan of DIY weddings (I was a DIY bride myself) but this couple really took it to heart! Every detail of their wedding had a personal touch, from the intricate invitations down to the wedding favors / giveaways that they handed out to their guests. It was really nice that the ceremony was held early in the afternoon, so that the guests had a lot of time to enjoy the beach and the sunset before the reception started. Check out the lovely details of Boyet and Xandra's wedding:

Ceremony: San Juan Nepomuceno Church
Reception: Sabangan Beach Resort, Laiya
