The Philippine wedding scene has transformed significantly for the past couple of years. It has become more ‘modern’ to put it best. The bride, for instance, goes for an elaborated, embellished wedding gown, while the groom tends to wear tuxedo or suit. It’s rare now to see a man to opt for a barong tagalog on the d-day. But today, we’re fortunate enough to witness a union that tagalog confidently and proudly stepped back a bit to incorporate the almost forgotten Filipino culture.
Richie and Kyle recently tied the knot in the Filipino way. The groom and entourage wore a fine barong tagalog from Lily’s Textile, while the bride chose an off-shoulder wedding dress that is made out of jusi and by Edwin Dress Shop. These really made us fall in love head first with this union! It’s not just a celebration of love, but also of our rich culture. We thank Peach Frost Studio for the photos!

The long weekend hast started yesterday but if you have not thought of any thing to do or any place to go yet, then you’re in the right page. Merry To Marry organises a quick side trip to Acuaverde Beach Resort to witness this light yet solemn beach union between two hearts—Allen and Ann.
The Perfect Grey team is with us to take us through this celebration through their lenses. As their name suggests, they have perfectly captured every moment in this union. But just like the couple and the master photographer, the backdrop for this is equally perfect. Acuaverde Beach Resort boasts an inviting body of water against the fine sand. This resort in Laiya, Batangas is poised to be the most perfect place for beach wedding and engagement. We are sure of that!
