An elegant and relaxed Philippine Wedding with a monochrome & champagne palette

Today I am excited to share this  elegant and relaxed Philippine Wedding with a monochrome & champagne palette.

The ceremony was held in the gorgeous Madre de Dios Chapel with a beautiful Reception at the Midlands Clubhouse.

Images were captured by Toto Villaruel.

Toto Vilaruel is  fine art wedding photographer based in Manila in the Phillipines.

He found his passion in wedding photography after becoming a photojournalist.

He then started his career in the industry and within 2 years became the youngest master in Imagine Nation Photography.

Now, after 4 years in the business he has set off to start his own business.

Toto captures your  special moments bolted with art to go beyond what is usual, taking it in a visually enticing perspective .

 

Stunning Bride Joanarc shares a little of her love story…

 

“We met in college. We’re both taking up Journalism at the University of Sto. Tomas.”

“We were friends and hang out with the same group but we became close during our last year in college.”

“We were both in problematic relationships and commiserated with each other.”

“We stayed close until after graduation, getting coffee and drinking after work but it wasn’t until three years after graduation when we first kissed.”

“We’ve been together ever since.”

 

“For our wedding, which we planned for more than a year, we wanted to keep it simple and elegant since it is a celebration of our marriage witnessed by close friends and family.”

“We limited the colors to black, white, and champagne, to create a modern feel but we filled the venue with flowers and lights to evoke a feeling of coziness.”

“We wanted everything to be chill, for the guests to feel relaxed and for everyone, including us, to have fun.”

“I think we had an advantage because I work in PR so I handle a lot of events so this prepared me for planning the day.”

“My mom helped with the venue, I looked for our florist, wedding coordinator, the photographer, and the videographer.”

“Brian looked for the band and handled the technical stuff.”

“It was a journey we walked together to create our perfect day.”
