The dreamy color palette, the stunning reception decor and the romantic story of two people from miles and miles apart meeting and falling in love make this wedding planned by La Belle Fete Weddings & Events truly beautiful. The wedding was held at the beautiful garden of Lemuria, a gourmet restaurant in Quezon City. The theme played around ethereal elements and the bride’s favorite color which is blue. Cascading flowers over chandeliers, twigs, ferns, burlap and that gorgeous mix of flowers in different shades of blue all created that sublime, rustic romantic vibe. The pretty images you are about to see in this gallery were all captured beautifully by Nicolas Photography.
From La Belle Fete:
Michelle is very simple – neither demanding nor domineering. She is very nice and easy to talk to. Moreover, what I truly loved about her was that she trusted me 100% and believed in me without questions asked. She told me that the civil wedding would be very intimate with 70-100 guests. After the event, they would fly to Mauritius to have a Muslim wedding that would be prepared by Faiz’s family. Her only request was to have her “dream” wedding here albeit very simple. And with that modest request – all arrows immediately pointed me to the right directions and decisions. My desire to give her a very memorable wedding ignited.
I started with the theme. I asked for her favorite color, thus I came up with color palette of different shades of blue from midnight blue, teal, cerulean to powder. I envisioned the Ethereal and Eternal wedding since the concept focused on ethereal, dreamy bluish elements. The color also embodied the sea or beaches where Philippines and Mauritius are known of – a union of two souls intertwined thus the sublime ideas and details. I also added elements such as ferns and paisley to represent flora – which also became a big part of the theme. I really wanted lots of crawling and cascading flowers all over the place. I decided to add the color white to achieve the “rustic romantic” feel thus the white boxes and twigs and the all white tiffany chairs. I really wanted it to be sleek/pristine type of rustic. White also made the whole palette look ethereal.
