Rica & Mark: The Prenup

It’s already mid-week and this is what kept me up this morning…along with my cup of joe, of course!

When you fell in love during your stay in your Alma Mater, it’s only right to celebrate you engagement in the same place. Rica & Mark were lucky enough to have done the same. Check out Mark’s proposal & their gorgeous shoot in Ateneo de Manila University.

The concept:
There was no concept entirely. “We just wanted to shoot in Ateneo where we met, where we got to know each other, became best friends and spent memorable moments in the early part of our relationship.

The couple had to secure permits from the admin for their Saturday shoot.

To go together with the shoot, Rica’s good friend Sol Dandan became their stylist for the entire afternoon. 3 styles were prepared from formal to semi formal to casual.

“The fashion shoot was totally out of our comfort zone. When we first discussed the prenup with Oly, we said we just wanted something natural and candid since we’re not really the cheesy or the fashion model type. But come the actual shoot, we got carried away and totally forgot about what we said! But, it was good we got carried away! We’ve never done this before so the pictures and the story behind the shoot became so memorable.”

It just proves that chemistry is all that you need! And Rica & Mark seems to have plenty of it!  *Giggle*

Color+Mood #5: Midnight Lavender Berries

Lavender doesn’t always have to go with pink or white only. Pairing it with something like midnight blue or ink-blue, can make your palette become mysteriously romantic. This color board is originally inspired by Elle Decor’s lavender room (bottom leftmost corner) – then added with a little ink-blue & pale peach. Lovely!
