Celebrity Wedding: Charlie Fernandez and Paula Peralejo


Image

Be inspired by this Filipiniana-themed celebrity wedding of Paula Peralejo and Charlie Fernandez :)  In the Philippines, being a public figure, much more for a celebrity, people will expect a big wedding party with hundreds of guests and millions spent for a big day. But in this wedding, I truly admired how the couple, led by the bride, wanted their wedding to be intimate and private. The way they planned their wedding was very inspiring and if you have read the bride’s blog, you will get a lot of tips on making one’s wedding very special and personalized without breaking your bank account.

Here are some of the interesting details about this wedding :)

1. The couple wanted their wedding to be Eco-friendly and no real flowers. They wanted a “no waste policy” as much as possible :)

Image

2. Cost-effective wedding. They got full support from their families and friends and they spent on suppliers who, according to bride, “supported their requirements”

3. Plant as souvenirs that the groom’s mom planted herself  (basil, ashitava, and cilantro)

4.  Some of the materials that they used for their DIYs were made from existing materials that they already have at home such as jute sacks the groom got from his soy business, the groom’s  mom’s hurricane lamps, and scrap fabrics from the bride’s friend’s clothing factory

5. Centerpiece. Hurricane lamps placed on palayok filled with coffee beans. The coffee beans were then placed inside the jute sacks with buttons so they can bring it home and use as fertilizer for the plant souvenirs.

PainT mY WorLd – Djent Tyler’s Pantone Themed 1st Birthday Party :)


Okay, today’s post is not about weddings, but I promise you’ll see pretty things and get inspired :) And well, this is my baby love’s 1st birthday party, so please let me :) Yey! :)

My husband and I wanted to have a nice but quite uncommon motif so we decided on a non-balloon Pantone themed party.

Digging into the details of the invitations, the design concept was made-up of paint brush strokes and colorful fonts. Flipping through the back of the envelope are splashes of paint sealing the whole package with a die cut paintbrush.

Guests arriving were given escort cards leading to their respective table numbers that were made to portray like paint swatches. Upon entering, one can notice that the whole venue was dressed up with colorful chevron patterns with paint sample wall that were used as backdrops. Pompoms and fabric chevron buntings were hung from the ceiling as accents to the colorful environment.

Our birthday boy had his little corner with big painted letters of his name, his first toy, first shoes, first book etc., and a big canvass print of his “smash the cake” photo that matched the theme quite nicely.

Next to it was his “watch me grow” gallery where photos of him from newborn to 11 months were printed on a canvass and placed on mini easels, displayed nicely on a table with nice abstract linen. They sat nicely together with an artist’s apron with Tyler’s name and no. “1” written on it, an artist’s palette and brush and some acrylic colors in tubes, and a fun facts board about the celebrant’s birth date.

Another corner was the dessert bar overflowing with candies and sweets for our sweet tooth guests. Our stylist used crayon coin banks with text “DJENT TYLER TURNS ONE” and hung it just above the sweets bar and styled the table with interesting items. He even used a big paint can with colorful frosting drippings as a cake stand.

A very special Monday feature today is the wedding of the two special people in my life. I’m truly honored to be a part of this union. Though there were a lot of pressure on me being their wedding coordinator, bridesmaid, bride’s hair and make up artist, and wedding supplier, I’m so glad everything turned out well :) Whew! :) Also, this wedding is extra special not only for them but also for all their friends who voluntarily helped to make their dream wedding come true. A lot of effort was made and it was such a fun planning for everyone :) Both bride and groom were very hands-on with the preps and it’s so nice to see that the people who helped with the planning are those who have witnessed their love story from the very beginning. :) So everyone, please your eyes as you see the lovely wedding photos taken by the couple’s friends Renn Rementilla of Walls and Frames, Bong Llagas of Purple Rose Studios, Darwin Lucena of DarLucena Photography, Paul Reodique of St. Paul Photography, and Gio Diaz of Gio Diaz Photography :) By the way, I have selected few of the best from each photographers because there are too many photos to post :) you may click their links though, if you want to see the whole set :) To Jon and Sonjel, Congratulations and Best Wishes again! :)

Veluz launches her RTW bridal line 2013

Like most brides, (Filipina and International) renowned bridal gown designer Ms. Veluz, always leave me in delight whenever I see her creations. There’s something about her gowns that makes me feel more excited about weddings, and most of the time all I could just say was “OOOOOOOMMMPPPHH ..WOOOOOWWWWW!!!” Veluz or non Veluz brides just simply love her!! :) Oh well that’s not surprising at all because her passion for her craft shows magic in every gown that she makes. That’s why even brides from different parts of the world come to her to ask to create for them their dream wedding gown. :) And being one of the most in demand designers, she receives tons of enquiries everyday that she tries to answer each one personally. And because she loves brides so much, she launched her Ready-to-Wear bridal gown collection for 2013 to cater more brides. I guess she feels bad whenever she turns down a bride due to her very busy schedule. So this is good news to all the brides out there who wish to wear a Veluz gown on their BIG day. :) Scroll down and swoon over these magnificent creations by the talented, Ms. Veluz! :) Photo taken by Mimi & Karl

Congratulations, Ms. Veluz! :)
