Black and White Wedding Theme

It is uncommon for a Filipino bride to choose black and white as a wedding theme or motif. The color black means sadness or the color of mourning. For most of us, it is something that we'll only wear to a funeral, Halloween or rock concert but never on weddings. However, trends keep on changing and people become more open-minded as time passes by.

Last month, I attended a black and white-themed Wedding. I was excited because I've never been to wedding with such a theme. In the photo below, you can see the gift that I gave the newlyweds which I personally wrapped, following the couple's motif.

 Included in the collage is my cocktail ring, pearl jewelry, white pumps, and white handbag that I used for the wedding. Noticed the very cute wedding invitation on the lower left? :)

The wedding ceremony took place at an Iglesia ni Cristo church in Cubao. The reception followed at the Oasis - The Pavilion in San Juan. Attendees were the couples' families, friends, and other relatives.

Yes, the bride added some touch of red to the theme, so it won't be boring. Black and white plus red was just fabulous. Don't you think?

My friends and I had so much fun posing at the photo booth.
We took a lot of funny and wacky photos. This one I think is the coolest.

And.. here's my favorite picture of the couple which I edited through Picasa. The bride's hand-tied bouquet is the highlight of this photo. Very beautiful. Welcome to married life Ish :)
