See what I mean by “very vintage”?
When I first saw the stunning photo above from Joey Boquiren website, I knew this was THE vintage wedding that had to be here. Everything, and I mean everything about Von and Jenny’s May 9 wedding was period classy: the bridal car, the bride’s hair and make-up (by Sabs Hernandez), the groom’s slim suit and groomsmen’s uniform necktie, the bride’s headpiece from Etsy… they all just spelled O-L-D.
And who better to cover such an affair than Joey, who has a knack for creating this type of antiqued photos. I have a feeling this guy will be one of the most sought-after wedding photographers someday. He has talent, a down-to-earth attitude and a niche that’s becoming increasingly popular.
Jenny said they weren’t really planning on having a themed wedding but after browsing through a lot of wedding blogs and magazines, she realized she didn’t want “anything cliche.” So they ended up with things vintage. And her favorite of them all?
The bird cage veil specially made by my good friend Gideon Sy. He made the veil four days before my wedding. This is one particular piece of my accessories I’m most proud of because I never thought that I’d be wearing one since most Filipino brides wear long veils.
Von and Jenny, both graphic designers, are now back in Singapore, enjoying a very modern life. Bliss to you both!
