Cha & Marco's Batanes Wedding

Photography by Joel Salindong Digital Video

Cha & Marco's engagement has got to be one of the most well documented here in RB. We got them for one of our editorial features (CLICK HERE), then we also featured their Save the Date (CLICK HERE), and finally their "Pamamanhikan" Family Prenup (CLICK HERE).

I can still remember when Cha just recently got engaged. She was dead-set on having a Batanes wedding but for a split second, she got worried that her dream wedding wasn't going to be possible because she thought it would cost millions. We both simply couldn't agree to this at all! RB, through our Wedding Agency Service, helped her do the research and bring her to an ideal budget. 

Cha & Marco's Batanes Wedding is quite rebellious in so many ways, that we didn't even know how to title this post. In the end we just thought of simply calling it their Batanes Wedding because just like the title, the wedding was no frills, no fuss, but heartfelt on its own.  

As a Rebellious Bride, Cha identified her key investments and kept everything else as practical as possible. Her non-negotiables included her fabulous Vidal Clayton/Cecilio Abad Design Team bridal gown and Batanes as their wedding destination wedding venue. 

I had Cha develop her own blog post for her wedding (Phew! Thanks Cha!), so let's get right to it!

"Who's That Bride?"

Photography by Zeus Martinez Photography

I personally see tons of wedding photos on my Facebook news feeds and Instagram timeline. Naturally, at some point my feeds become a blur. Then on very rare occasions, a bride catches my attention and makes the blur pause into a perfect rebellious freeze frame that makes me feel giddy. One such moment was when I saw Rebellious Bride Ashley as photographed by Zeus Martinez. 

A sudden gush of excitement usually follows this "freeze frame" moment which then compels me to feature. 

The Blueprint Bouquet

Here's a perfect example of how you can take a very masculine theme like "construction" and make it look crazy beautiful. I can't wait to see the rest of this construction themed wedding! The bouquet below was made by no less than Teddy Manuel. This non-floral bouquet is made from Blueprint paper and metal wires.

Jill & Mark's 2-Part Boracay Wedding

One look at Rebellious Bride Jill, and for sure you would know why she landed on our blog. Why, she wore a short wedding gown--and a PINK one at that! But that's not the only reason why we're excited to feature her today. Among many, many rebellious details on her wedding day to Mark, she had TWO Boracay weddings!

I looooooove flowers! I love flowers so much that I didn't have flowers for our Boracay wedding except for the bouquets--sounds contradicting, right? That's because my reasoning at that time was that I couldn't bare the thought of flowers being thrown away, wilting after the wedding. To me, it was like burning cash. 

That's why when I learned of Jacqs Floral Design Studio's new concept which Jacq calls her "signature centerpieces", I was totally impressed by it. Jacq says that she conceptualized her arrangements to be "pretty and practical". 

Electrolychee's Brucus Modern Fiesta Wedding

Shenanigans! That was the first word that came to mind when I saw this mischievous wedding (my second thought was, "What great sorcery is this?!"). They got away with so much irreverence and created their own wedding traditions that their them-ness  shone through out the wedding. The whole celebration was neatly tied together (like walis tingting) under one theme and nothing was half-assed as seen in the details. Nothing felt too fancy and pretentious. It was what a fiesta should be - fun and crazy! Fiesta kung fiesta! I died laughing when I read on their invite that the dress code was called Magsasaka Chic (farmer chic). 

Actually, nothing felt like your usual wedding. They didn't even get the usual wedding suppliers AND they never set foot in a wedding fair ever, didn't even buy one wedding magazine and got much inspiration from the Manila Fame furnishings expo and craft sites instead.

Then I asked Bride Bru about which parts of their wedding she considered rebellious and I loved her answer: Everything, hehe. Our parents let us be, I think they're just happy we're finally getting hitched. 

And this, RB readers, is what can happen when your dear parents let you do what you want on your wedding day. HOORAY! Oh, I bet you guys are going to love every drop  of rebellion oozing from this wedding!

Here's more from the bride Bru:

If you find a woman who is rebelliously game enough to have a wedding that revolved around beer, then buddy, you definitely got yourself a keeper. And that's what Rebellious Bride Reyssie is.
