Wedding Inspiration: Once A Classic Bride

Looking back, my wedding day seemed like a big blur-one magical blur filled with fragrant flowers, camera flashes, nervous giggles, happy tears, and lots of kisses. The whole experience left me with so much gratitude and respect for the people who served me and made every moment of it beautiful and memorable.

As a traditional bride, I chose soft colors and classic styling. Our wedding was held in Sofitel Manila, a luxury hotel known for its stunning interior, subdued lighting and ballrooms decked with crystal chandeliers, the perfect venue for a classic bride like me.

Audrey Hepburn Inspired Wedding Feature on Wedluxe

I came back from our Europe trip feeling a bit sad that summer is almost over here on this side of the globe, but my mood instantly shifted as I was informed of another feature by no less than Wedluxe, a sought-after guide on luxury weddings and stylish events. I’m grateful to Teresa Tran for giving me the opportunity to collaborate with her at the last moment. I am truly in awe of her talent and dedication to her craft. Kudos to the rest of the vendors who put together all the elements needed to create this amazing, Audrey Hepburn-inspired styled shoot.

Without further talk, here are the dreamy, beyond-beautiful photos captured by Ken Tan and featured in Wedluxe website.

Hope you get more inspired!

There’s no denying that Audrey Hepburn’s iconic style has served as inspiration for countless generations and will continue to inspire. Her glamour and elegance is translated into this styled shoot through a soft colour palette, gold tableware, and delicate pearl accents. Feminine, romantic, and oh-so-chic.

Artfully Wed Feature

When I heard from Shawna of Sweetheart Events that the styled shoot we worked on last February will soon be featured by an online wedding style blog, I was beyond ecstatic! I know that the shoot was tastefully done, and it was an honor for me to be included alongside a list of seasoned and awesome vendors in Vancouver.

Customized Bridesmaid Gift Basket

I was asked to create a gift basket following the industrial-inspired theme so I used galvanized tin and chose gift items in hues of white, gold and blush pink.

This beautifully airy art studio wedding styled shoot from Summer Rayne Photo and Sweetheart Events showcases a stunning Truvelle gown, vintage decor and personalized wedding vows in an industrial warehouse space softened by the romantic color palette of dove gray, white, gold and Rose Quartz! The venue, a former winery, is a current working art studio where guests can look through the reclaimed window walls to see into the artists’ work spaces. The estate head table was accented with dove gray linens, rose tapered candles, green garland, gold dipped cutlery and a gorgeous centerpiece to bring out the subtle hints of the color palette. The unique wedding vows were written in calligraphy on a backdrop behind the cake table, as well!
