Simple Things

December 3, 2014

It is almost always true that most simple things speak louder. Less is more, as implied by the old adage. We guess the lovely couple, Michael and Ida, also believes in this. Look at the stills taken at their special day. Simplicity highlights purity and, to some extent, ironically echoes grandeur. Thank you Nog Bernido for capturing this simple yet mesmeric event. We are all enthralled.

The white dress worn by the beautiful bride is by the Vera Wang, nonetheless. The name says it all, doesn’t it? We know that wearing a Vera Wang dress is not as plain as we mean by this wedding–money wise–but that dress is just divinely beautiful. It looks plain yet resonates exquisiteness. And this elegance is complemented by simple pieces in pastel motif. Can this wedding not be in your books after-all?

Their Full Smiles

November 21, 2014

You will never see big, full smiles than that of the charming pair, James and Euan, especially on their wedding day. You can see their smiles beaming from ear to ear, and this is clearly shown in the slideshow of candid moments well captured by Pictratto Photography. You can see how fun and amusing this coming together has been. Just looking through this, we feel how happy this pair is now that they are starting their lives together, forever.

Jake Olaso has done a tremendous job in narrating the journey of this pair—from the start they met each other to the day James proposed to Euan. Some important clips during the wedding day are shown in between the stages of the so-called embarkation to love of this pair, and we love how it is stitched across the video. Through the narration, we have realized how enjoyable and comical when the two are together. We absolutely love the banter. We can only imagine how hilarious these two. Thank you and this leaves us with big smiles in our hearts.
