Andre and Pia

Its rare to see weddings that show so much creativity and spunk in the Philippines. I think partly because we are a very traditional and culture-focused nation. Many weddings choose to stick to the mold and follow the rules we’ve grown accustomed to. However, more and more couples today are being more experimental and daring in planning their big day. It’s so great to see that weddings are starting to really reflect the couple’s character and style.

One gorgeous wedding I saw was Andre and Pia’s wedding. Pure loveliness indeed.



How breathtaking is this bouquet?

This cake has charm written all over it.

As you can see in the photos, the wedding was so cozy and personal. So I asked Pia why their wedding was so “them”.

I guess because we planned the wedding based on everything we like but we still gave considerations to certain traditions and cultures. For example, no more releasing of doves but we released balloons instead. We didn’t have the games anymore but we didn’t skip on the cake cutting and the drinking of wine as they have more meaning (for us).

We talked about having a simple but charming wedding, so our wedding has the old world charm feel which we both like.

We personally chose the flowers/plants for table setting, we made the playlist for the entire wedding from the church down to cocktails and dinner!

We were very hands on which is why we don’t regret anything about the wedding. We just followed our hearts’ desires! I think when you plan something from the heart, your self will truly show.

We (Andre and I) made our props (mustaches) for our Baicapture photobooth. it’s a nice touch to make things more personal since we know that photobooths are everywhere nowadays. I also asked an artist friend to do our backdrop instead of the selection templates of Baicapture. We used this backdrop design for our thank you cards as well.

To Andre and Pia, cheers to your beautiful wedding!

Beauty and the Best

Almost every girl I know dreams of the fairytale wedding we so often see in movies or the pages of a bridal magazine. While some may have the luxury of splurging on their big day, others simply have to work within a budget. But do not fret, the beauty of a wedding is not really directly related to how much you spend for it. Aside from the priceless emotions of love and laughter, the trick really is in the style details. And that’s where B&B comes in.

Being a lover of all things beautiful, I hope to share with you my own wedding experience, the creme de la creme weddings and super gorgeous wedding-related things that can inspire you to get your style to the aisle. Whether you need to keep tabs on the expenses or it’s sky’s the limit for your big day, if it’s fresh, unique and pretty, it’s here!

But first things first! Let me introduce myself. I’m Janna and I love pretty things. Ever since I started planning my wedding, I simply got hooked on the beauty and creativity it requires. I constantly seek for inspiration in books, blogs and anything in between. I am blessed to be totally in love with my husband who is also my best friend. And a mom to our first little darling Matti who adds so much color to my life. I am passionate about style, wedding fashion, and anything artsy and elegant. I love to write, I love to daydream, and I love to be girly. As a wedding curator, I constantly strive to get ideas to innovate and better my eye for detail. As a blogger, I try to filter out the best of what this industry has to offer hoping that I would be able to help and inspire all of you.

So with that, I say cheers to you, yes you… the beauty of this story. You deserve the best groom, the best wedding and the best memories of one of the grandest days of your life!
