With sensitive silk ribbons dancing amidst wisteria tunnels and glittering chandeliers, the visible narrative of the day feels like it was plucked straight from a storybook.

Flowers on the tables, the partitions and even the ceilings will normally quit us in our tracks, so we have a experience E+J’s lush Philippines marriage ceremony will do the identical to you!

The couple started out as just about every other’s higher university crushes much more than 13 many years in the past. They equally grew and figured out alongside one another and soon after 9 yrs (officially) as boyfriend-girlfriend, they last but not least bought married on Dec 18, 2021. What would make the marriage deeply meaningful, remarkably bespoke and definitely unique? December 18 is their day! It is the extremely very same working day that Estelle stated Certainly to be Jepoy’s HS promdate (2009), girlfriend (2012), fiancé (2020) and wife (2021). It will be the exact same day they will be celebrating eternally!
The motif is lilac and plum with hints of gold. This motif was integrated in all the facts as a great deal as attainable. This is the bride’s top favourite coloration ever given that childhood. Her mates even get in touch with her ‘purplestar’ (she tremendous loves purple, and star refers to her title ‘Estelle’). In addition to this, all wedding elements and details are bespoke and personalised, possessing a which means or again-story why they had been utilised or picked out. Almost everything was nicely-assumed out down to the previous detail. Down below are some examples. Additional information can be discovered in the connected excel file. a. The bride wore mismatched footwear (lilac and plum) in line with the motif and maintaining that hint of gold by means of the gold metal leaves at the again of the shoe. In addition to this, the bride’s toenails were painted the reverse shade of purple (see photographs). She wore these shoes during the reception. But there is additional. The bride actually experienced 2 pairs of footwear for her marriage. For the ceremony, she wore laser-slice, plum, leather-based footwear with their initials at the entrance (J&E) and a star at the aspect-ankle portion. Both equally shoes are bespoke, experienced individualized soles, and resources of which ended up bought and presented by the bride.
The bride wore a comprehensive-lace serpentine robe. It had a deep V sweetheart lower neckline with thin straps, a corseted best, low again, detachable tulle coach and veil, all in pure white. The bride definitely required that hint of purple however present in her pure white gown – so there was lilac tulle put as internal layers of the serpentine robe. It experienced dainty and intricate specifics of leaves/foliage with hints of stars (Estelle indicates star) and experienced the date (12.18.2021) and names of the couple (jepoy<3estelle) embroidered at the back of the gown and at the end of the bride’s veil. The bride personally requested the cut, laces and the details herself during the design process with her couturier. She also made sure very light materials were used to minimize the gown’s weight so she can move around freely on her wedding day.
Of course, it’s not only the bride’s attire that is personalized and with hints of the motif. The groom’s barong was also bespoke and had embroidery that went well with the bridal gown laces. It also had details embroidered on both cuffs – ‘12.18.21’ on the right and ‘jepoy <3 estelle’ on the left. The back of the collar had a purple heart embroidered on it. All buttons had gold accent. Socks were plum and hanky was lilac with names/date also.
The entourage gown color was one of the most difficult decisions of the bride – choosing the exact shade and even buying the actual fabric of the entourage gowns. She loves all purple shades so much that she decided to use 2 different shades as her overall motif – lilac and plum. And it turned out beautifully – the bride super loved this detail! As mentioned, these colors are present in almost all their details as the bride wanted to be religiously consistent with this specific motif. The female entourage had bespoke gown designs also handpicked by the bride. The ninangs wore a plum shade, while the mothers had their own shades of purple.
The couple got married within the University of the Philippines Diliman where they finished college. All venues were within UP Diliman (church at Parish of the Holy Sacrifice, reception at Ang Bahay ng Alumni), and just outside UP’s perimeter (preparation at Balara Content Studio). The bride has been living inside the UP campus since childhood so we could say that this is her ‘hometown’. To add to that, they got married on the same church where the bride’s parents got married 30 years and 6 days ago (Dec 12, 1991). The bride also serves as a lector at this church and this is where she and the groom went to mass since college. The reception venue is the same venue where the bride had her debut 11 years ago (of course, the motif is also purple). The bride and groom also danced on the same dance floor when the bride had him as her partner for the cotillion.
