Beautifully Disconnected

January 3, 2017

Today’s wedding feature will remind you that once in awhile, being disconnected to the virtual world we all created is a beautiful thing. No cell phones, phone cameras, or even social media, just pure magic and love. Shutterfairy Photography gives us this inspiring union of Marc and Marynelle.

In this coming together, guests were requested to turn off their cell phones as if everyone was asked to get their senses back to the real social world. And it was a breath of fresh air and it was magical. It is not everyday we would see this, but we hope this could be the standard in every wedding.

Merry to Marry Exclusive: Sean Fariñas and Karel Marquez’s Pre-Wedding Editorial in Hong Kong

November 8, 2016

Mga larawang hinulma ng pusong nagaalab. These are the words that best describe the outtakes from the pre-wedding editorial shoot of two beautiful souls, Sean and Karel. This is an exclusive collaboration between Merry to Marry and Nice Print Photography.

We partnered with some of the most notable wedding suppliers today — Mariah SantosGeof Lagria, and Vatel Manila. The whole team flew all the way to Hong Kong to shoot these poetically beautiful photos. And they were amazing! Nice Print Photography has clearly outdone themselves with this work. The photos are dreamy yet crisp and they resulted to how we envisioned it: fun, light, and effortless.

Meanwhile, Karel did not need to be glamorized any further because she’s already stunning, but Mariah Santos made her even more beautiful and Vatel Manila‘s bouquet of flowers kept up with that classic beauty. Lastly, Geof Lagria‘s mad skills in styling made the couple stood out against the overwhelming facade of the city. Hold your breath and be fascinated with these stills:
