Do-it-Yourself Post-Wedding Pics

There's something so magical and magnificent about having a ballgown complete with a cathedral train for your wedding dress, but having a short dress comes in handy if you want to have post-nuptial photos during your honeymoon. :-)

My friend Brenda and her husband Mark had a wonderful honeymoon last year while touring Europe -- Paris, Rome, Venice, Berlin, Switzerland, The Hague, Iceland. In every country/city they visited, they brought their wedding clothes and set-up a camera with a tri-pod. The result? See all the pretty pictures below:

How were they able to pull it off?

Check out more of their photos and details from Brenda's blog here.

Love, just because.

Wedding videos are no longer just wedding videos. They've become beautifully-crafted short films.

People often ask couples who are about to get married, "How did/do you know she's/he's the one?"

And most of the time, the answer is "I just knew."

Perhaps it was because he or she was unlike anyone you've ever met. Unlike anyone you've ever seen. Unlike anyone you've ever loved.  

Perhaps sometimes, there are no words to describe how love is. Like how I love this video from Treehouse Story. ❤

Breathtaking Batanes

People weren't exaggerating when they referred to Batanes as the Philippines' New Zealand. With a population of less than 20,000 people, this group of about ten islands, of which the biggest being Batan, Sabtang and Itbayat are the ones usually visited by tourists.

We opted to stay in Batan for our entire stay, visiting the different slopes and shorelines to enjoy Ivatan food and mingle with some locals -- which included lots of cows who keep the mountainside grass trimmed. :-p

Rolling hills everywhere you look.

Apart from the promo airfare we were able to avail of, I was so happy to finally book rooms at Fundacion Pacita - a hilltop hotel.

When staying in Batanes, Fundacion Pacita's restaurant should not be missed.

Their calamansi pie was sooooo good!

Behind the hotel was a pathway down to the pebble beach.

We requested a tour guide and vehicle through our hotel. We visited the famous lighthouses...


... and had a hearty lunch at paulvana's.

We even had lobsters!

After lunch, we continued with our tour to see the Spanish lagoon which was frequented by Spanish friars in the 1900's... of the oldest houses in Batanes...

...and the Honesty store.

Of course, this trip would not be complete without visiting the famous rolling hills.

 What are you waiting for? Whether for your engagement photos or honeymoon, go book that trip to one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in the Philippines!
