Of Wine and Of Sand

With all the craziest ideas that will come into one’s mind for an engagement shoot, the simplest and truest idea will come off as the best one. Look at today’s feature, it is simple you cannot deny how compelling it is.

John and Vyll’s e-session was conceptualized by April Mae Valencia-Carrillo of First of April, no less. Who would have thought that putting two chairs and a table full of pieces would bring some drama? It is very simple yet bewildering. And oh, what wine could do to someone? In this case, the couple got off their feet and danced in the sand.

This concept, meanwhile, was complemented by Lloyed Valezuela‘s mad skills for capturing moments like this. Thank you for making a good team with First of April.

Knowing the story how the couple, Angel and Susie, ended up with a Japanese-themed wedding makes sense. Their love for each other blossomed when both of them lived and worked in Japan before. It blossomed beautifully like cherry blossoms slowly and fleetingly fall from the branches in thin air. It is a romantic story fit for an equally romantic event.

Fernbrook Gardens could not be any more fitting to hold this union, especially with the tiniest details in the reception. White, rustic, and minimalist were the setup of and accented every table which added aesthetic value. The Japanese dolls and chopsticks completed the whole look, indeed. Kudos to Bliss and Berries team for witnessing these blossomed moments.
