Never Let Your Wings Be Stolen From You

Rebellious collaborations have long been a staple in the 3 years that we've had this blog. And we pride ourselves for being one of the firsts to do it. Every year is different. But three things remain: 1) We always want to do something that's out of the ordinary, 2) We always want to celebrate talents (both fresh and seniors) and kind of push them out of their comfort zones, and 3) We never take our shoots seriously (topak kung topak! in English, "cray, cray!").

Michael Cinco x Marian Rivera

This just in, rebels! Marian has chosen Michael Cinco as her wedding gown couturier after a year of researching for "the one."

Joanne + Tom: Pure Shores

In this Boracay wedding, you'll see the elements of what makes a wedding "rebellious" in our books. 1) Celebrating the destination wedding in its purest form without over-styling it, 2) Non-traditional, understated, stylish wedding style, 3) Beautiful photography, 4) Natural and organic looking, and last  but not the least 5) A laid back couple who just wants to get married. 

That's all you really need, folks. 

Rebellious Bridal Style: OLIVIA

Occasionally, we blog on simply a bride's style. Zeroing in on how a bride can rebelliously think of a cohesive style that is of course non-traditional, or a bride that chooses color palettes that are refreshing to see, or a bride that is rebellious enough to make her entourage look just as stunning as she is. Lately, I'm feeling like we need to do this more often so that we can inspire more brides to rebel against the usual looks/fashion. And speaking of rebel looks, here's one from a random photo shoot that Quirky Creatives made for Raf & Olivia--this is NOT a wedding nor a prenup photo okay? It was a random pictorial done during a fashion event. But I wanted to feature this because we love NONE-bridal pegs remember? ;)

I love Oliva's Ryan Madamba gown, don't you? I think it makes for an awesome anti-white bridal gown idea! The structure of the dress is so flattering, and the way Olivia looks just completes the look so well.

Tadashi Shoji

I've just realized that I haven't actually written a blog tribute to one of my most favorite international designers, Tadashi Shoji. I love him because he makes curvy women like me feel beautiful. I have two of his gowns and both make me feel like Juliet Capulet. I also love him because his creations are quite unique, and always with a hint of twist on classic styles. And most of all? His creations are soooooooo unbelievably and thoughtfully affordable (check out my pricing guide for bridal gowns below).

Here are some of my favorites from his Spring 2015 collection:

We Are Seekers Goes Film

Wedding Videography in the Philippines has got to be one of the most challenging to break through. The standards are so high because they were pioneered and dominated by innovators the likes of Jason Magbanua, Bob Nicolas, Threelogy, and Mayad. And it's so difficult because you could easily get branded as a "me-too." But there are fresh new talents entering the scene--and if the name of the game before was to "copy" the greats, now, it's all about veering away from what has already been done and finding one's identity. And that's what I love about We Are Seekers' new brand of film making. As RV Dela Paz asserts, they gathered all their learnings from videography from their previous experiences and created a signature style that is proudly their own--something that's not copied from others.
