Leap of Faith

Tagaytay City is a popular choice for weddings, perhaps because of its cool weather, countryside ambiance, and the gentleness of the place in its entirety. Hence, it is only fitting to hold the wedding of KC and Issa, who both exude calmness and kindness, in this amazing peri-rural area. The Country Suites Discovery is the perfect fit to highlight the preparation for this rustic-themed wedding that can be seen in the photos taken by Den Llanos Dee. Dee overall magnificently displays the beauty of the bride against the ocean of greens and clouds.

The bride opts for a long-sleeve, A-line silhouette wedding gown from Coexist which is owned by the famous fashion-blogger-turned-designer, Camille Co. That long veil really dances well with the wind and is captured in that beautiful black and white portrait by Dee. Amazing job, Dee and Co!

San Antonio De Padua church is also a great choice as this couple takes a leap of faith, particularly KC who left the seminary but vowed to still serve and praise his Creator in other ways. KC kept his promise and he still does, especially now that he is with his wife.

BridalSesh 2014: An Eclectic Collaboration

This collaboration is gotta be one of the best things you would see this year. BridalSesh showcases the invaluable works of some of the wedding artists we consider on top of their games.

Jazel Madel-Sy parades three of her exquisite creations. This artist has already mastered the use of sheer and lace in coral gowns. And we won’t complain. The back of the first gown is tastefully revealing. You will be amazed by the craftsmanship of the details in the modified A-line. The second gown, meanwhile, is fairly a one shoulder lace dress. The blusher deafeningly speaks more and gives elegance to it. While the third gown is an empire cut in mermaid silhouette. This is certainly an all-embracing one that every bride-to-be wants to wear. So if you are looking for a gown that has a touch of centuries-gone-by grace while keeping it utterly current, then Jazel Madel-Sy is the one.

Toni Aviles Make Up Artistry chooses strong shades of lipsticks, giving class to this shoot. That face of Nashka Tonified can already launch a thousand ships, but with the magic hands of this team, that face can now launch a million and so ships. Who would have thought that dark red lipstick gives more drama and sexier vibe?

This Parisian editorial shoot would not have been this great if not because of the mad skills of Ruffa and Mike. This shoot really embodies what a Parisian theme should look like—classic and fabulous. It seems like this duo has been doing editorial shots for a long time now, but this is just the first time they are spearheading such.  Way to go Ruffa and Mike. Those black and white portraits are piercing and cut though your soul. The astounding design set by Moki Gray against Jardin de Miramar is maximized and equally stand out in these photos.

You will feel like that this is your dream team; a dream team that will make your dream wedding come to life. See the collaboration below and tell us we are right.
