Parisian pre-nup - Miguel and Pia

This has got to be one of the most stylishly dreamy engagement photos I've seen.

While most couples love to play dress up, Miguel and Pia play for the camera like pros. For Parisphiles like me, this engagement photoshoot would have been pure fun!

Je l'aime! Tres chic.

A wedding in the city that never sleeps

I saw a link of this wedding posted in Facebook by one of my dearest friends and all at once, feelings of nostalgia washed over me like a tsunami.

If memory serves me right, I have only seen (in person) my friend Jamine's younger sister, Natalia maybe twice. Once when Jamine and I were in high school, which means that Natalia may have been just a tween then, and then 15 years ago, when Natalia may have been in middle school or college when I visited Jamine in Vancouver.

So it surprised me to know that Natalia just got married (how time flies) and I feel so much older now. Sniff.

I also recently visited New York for the first time last year and unbelievable but true, this city has a vibe that makes you fall in love with it, wanting to come back even before you leave the city limits.

Enjoy this lovely wedding. :-)

Here are some photos I took when I visited Ville Sommet:

The tie that binds in the City of Pines

The Wedding Enthusiast was in Baguio a week ago and after spending just a few days there, we can truly say that a Baguio trip is an experience worth doing over and over. There is something about this place that makes everyone so nostalgic, romantic and dewy-eyed.

Although I haven't been to every nook and cranny in the Philippines, I can say that Baguio makes you sometimes feel like you're in another country. The lush pine tree forests, the roads all inclined, the cool weather, the fresh fruits and vegetables are all worth the almost 5-hour trip from Manila.

It is no wonder that many couples, despite the distance and complications in preparing for an out-of-town wedding, choose this destination to tie the knot.

Here's a set from Jaja Samaniego, capturing the very essence of a Baguio wedding -- cool yet filled with warm smiles, romantic and breathtakingly beautiful.

One of Baguio's favorite dwelling place, The Manor at Camp John Hay.

Inspired by Baguio's lush pines, I want to plant some of my own and maybe have a "little Baguio." :-)
