Back to regular programming…

We were blessed to do an editorial like no other together with the finest of wedding suppliers who dared to re-invent the Urban Bride look. With weeks of coordination through emails and meet-ups, we were able to come up the profile of the perfect “Urban Bride”

In defining the “Urban Bride”, our team focused on three factors: city life, elegance, and new. We wanted to highlight city life because it’s all about our bride growing up and getting married in a city thus, embracing modernity. Also, we believe that being an urban bride still means being elegant. Our bride exudes grace even under the pressures of a modern and fast-paced world. Lastly, the urban bride chooses to move forward rather than dwell on her past. Her fresh look matches her fresh outlook in life that’s why she always embrace “new” things.

We wanted to show a confident, cosmopolitan woman against a very “urban” background; hence, our chosen locations. We wanted to show that despite living in a fast-paced world full of success and flair, the “Urban Bride” still wants to settle down and seek happiness through marriage.  – Nasia Cammayo

It is going to be a fine journey for the bride dressed glamourously in beads and lace on a transparent bodice providing the right dose of oomph to transport her whimsically as she imagines herself traipsing the red carpet for the Oscar’s. How the designer responds to the tension between the traditional and avant garde lies in his ability to see the truth about his client’s personality- seeing beyond her nervous giggles and shy self descriptions. And the truth not being manifest right away,designer and client hit on the stirrings of friendship;true to form,Bks doesn’t just draw his passion on paper. – Boy Kastner Santos

Finally posting a wedding blog. Lawrence and Ann was one of the winners of  my auctioned engagement sessions for Weddings at Work. Here’s a Trivia: Apparently, the names of both brides who won my E-Session were “Ann”. Amazing right? How cool was that?

I really loved everything about their wedding day. The weather, the hotel’s quirkiness, their wedding details, their families and guests. I heard somewhere that “Weddings are marriage not only of two people but of two families”. Ann’s family were very close to each other and I can see that they were really happy together. I remember her sister, Myra, sharing to the guests some pictures of Ann and her together and describing how close they were. Lawrence and his mom, on the other hand, had a moment during the reception where he was just grinning ear to ear as he was listening to his mom give her speech. I found that really cute.

These were just few of the blessings we saw that day and fortunately, we’ve captured more of it to share to all of you guys. Enjoy the pictures.
