Of Silver Linings and the Sea

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” – William G.T. Shedd
Here’s a reminder for us to find the courage to go out into the world fearlessly, live fully, and love completely. This small and intimate wedding held in the Subic Bay Yacht Club has a very dreamy and romantic feel.
The cloudy weather adds a bit of drama to the whole thing, and the contrast of the bride and groom’s smiles against such a backdrop is symbolic of the triumph of love over all things. Rain clouds included.

Picture Perfect

A simple and romantic wedding with a light aura: effortlessly perfect. Toto Villaruel‘s eyes for beauty is exemplary. His photos are simply breathtaking. Classy, like they came off the pages of a glossy high fashion magazine. Striking, like that first glimpse of the sun’s rays over the horizon. Yet the shots are also very real and very human. It is the gift of a great photographer to be able to capture the emotions of a moment and preserve it for posterity.

We love how the bridesmaids were dressed up in perfectly pastel colors that added prettiness and gorgeousness to the wedding and a very heartwarming moment of the bride and her father (who never get emotional during a wedding, anyway?)

Now, we’ll just let you go and drool over these.
