I recently got back from the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana. Just in time to witness Mariecel’s & Michael’s marriage!
Mariecel & Michael have two weddings planned, a small Catholic church wedding and a larger wedding at a beautiful mansion in Virginia later in September. I was honored when they asked me to photograph their church wedding. The guest count was kept to immediate family and it was the perfect intimate church wedding. The weather was perfect, the church was beautiful, and the couple was glowing.
This brooch is from Mariecel’s good friend Holly. Mariecel, Holly, and I used to work together as designers in the corporate world. Holly has been living and working in Korea for the past two years. She’s also quite the B-girl. When Mariecel went back to the Phillipines to get her wedding dress designed, Holly took a trip to Manilla to visit her. She gave Mariecel two beautiful brooches from Korea. This is just one of them. Love how well it worked with Mariecel’s church day gown.
Mariecel has two wedding dresses. She selected a beautiful lace for the church wedding gown. So delicately detailed.
Mariecel is a shoe connoisseur so it was only appropriate that these were her something blue.
Mariecel is a very talented designer. She designed the invitations and everything down to the last detail on the big wedding day. The middle diamond on her ring is her grandmother’s. This is her beautiful something old, yet new at the same time!
The beautiful church. Love the natural lighting and the high ceilings. And ofcourse, the bride and groom in the middle of it all.
We headed to Old Town Alexandria for a few post wedding photos.
Back to the house for some delicious cake! Cake by Fluffy Thoughts
