I love weddings with personal touches here and there. For Ralph and Justel’s wedding, they brought with them a carefully made scrapbook of their love story. I went through the pages and journeyed with them — from the Philippines to Singapore and how they grew as a couple.
Weddings, for me, are supposed to be like that. It has to be you YOU. Everything about you!! From the smallest detail to the colors, even to your choice of suppliers.
A do-it-yourself wedding is a dream wedding to shoot. Because there is a story in it already. I’ve been asking my brides to check out Pinterest and be uber inspired by how one can craft something out of a cheap material. And how brides can personalize almost everything. Justel’s gown was Pinterest inspired. I think her hair too. I can spot a Pinterest inspired table setting! No kidding…
There was one page in Ralph & Justel’s scrapbook that stuck with me. “Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life… Love gives us a FAIRYTALE!”
I totally agree.
PS. I have to mention that I super enjoyed Justel’s bridesmaids. They were a happy bunch of fun loving ladies.
