Ten years ago, the universe lined up and Jonathan and Lej met each other. Fast forward, the couple met again, but this time, it was in front of the altar. They walked down the aisle in a rustic-chic themed wedding, where whites and creams painted the whole backdrop.

As taken by the ever magnificent, Team Benitez Photo, the pictures show us the details that made this wedding a success. The bride looked incredibly beautiful with that back-baring wedding gown, embellished with shimmering materials. It’s true that you will never go wrong with a Mel Orlina creation. That wedding gown, meanwhile, was complemented by the simplicity of the cascade done by the Vatel Manila. It seems like the trifecta of these suppliers highlighted one statement: simple, but not boring.

Into the Old City

It feels so good to reminisce specially about the triumphant moments of our lives. More so when you remember the stories you had with someone you’ve been with during your highest highs and even during your lowest lows. Reminiscing will definitely put smile on your face and happy tears in your eyes to the point you would want to experience the exact same moment again. So now, how far would you go just to be in that moment again? For Royde and Joan, it was a no brainer. They went back to the memory lane, literally.

This couple went to the old lanes of China only to recreate that sweet moment when they first met. Together with Larry Leong, the engaged couple also made new moments that they can treasure and share to their future children. It is our privilege to take a peek at these memories that we’re professionally captured by Leong.
