Themes and Teams

April 9, 2015

Gone are the days when weddings were just about color motifs. Today, themes are taken seriously and much emphasized on. It seems like it is the new black. From garden to beach wedding, rustic to Parisian, and nautical to wood-chic, themes become the template of any wedding and that set the tone of the event. To make every wedding even more different, gimmicks and other attention-grabbers are placed in. Just like Romeo and Diane’s union that sets the bar one notch higher—a wedding that will surely inspire you.

This wedding has ticked off all boxes of having a remarkable coming-together. Garden-themed wedding. Check. Le Jardin Rosella for the venue. Check. Randolf Evan Photography. Check. Ziggy Savella. Check. The Von Lazaro. Check. Just naming a few you may think that this union has all the ingredients to make this a beautiful one. While it is true, having a beautiful wedding does not mean it is different. Hence what sets this wedding apart from others is having Eloise Daniot in the pool of suppliers.

Eloise is the one who makes the origami bouquet and boutonnieres. Yes, you have read that right! It is all made from paper. It is absurdly mesmerizing to see paper cascades bloom like the real ones, isn’t it? The origami is done meticulously and with so much passion that transcends and goes well with the overarching theme.

Filipino weddings have evolved immensely and it influences the way many think and prepare for their own union. But whatever the theme and the tricks and gimmicks you place in, we hope that the true meaning and purpose of marriage still lives on.

To our dearest avid readers, Happy Easter! We do not have eggs to give away but we have a new wedding feature to be celebrated with you. This will surely take that Manic Monday syndrome away as everyone seems to be in a hurry to get back to work today. But if you’re still at home and feel like it is a crime to leave your bed, rise up as the Lord has risen and we are going to take you from merry to marry!

Our little perfect present to you are photos by Team Benitez Photo from Jepoy and Louie Karl’s wedding. Without a doubt—and we bet—the sunny disposition that this union exuded will transcend through your screens and will blazingly put smiles on your faces. The wedding gave off so much glow that you can even feel from those unpretentious, modest stills. Perhaps, that cotton candy motif might have added to the luster that we are seeing and feeling. Much praise to Team Benitez Photo for these. Your dedication is burning that we can see the little flickers through your work.
