Orj and Len: Hippie love

Let’s just think of this as the prequel to a box-office hit. Except that, well, it’s a pre-nup that’s being shown after this creative couple’s big project —  their 1920s flapper-themed wedding in Tagaytay on Jan. 2, 2010. Instead of going far, Orj and Len decided to bring their engagement shoot to Tagaytay as well.

This is, hands down, my favorite engagement shoot last year. Very happy and hippie and heartfelt! It didn’t look too composed or you know, themed. It’s just effortlessly gorgeous. See what two people in love and one photographer in love with his craft can do with a yellow van, a parking space, some balloons, hoops and signs. Oh and a lot of styling by Len, the bride.

If you say so…

I totally dig this van! The couple searched for a LONG time before they found this perfect little moving thing.

A kiss for luck and they’re on their way…

If, like me, you just want to stay a little longer with these two on their hippie shoot, head over here for more photos from Joey Boquiren


Orj and Len: DIY sophistication

She wanted a 1920s flapper themed wedding; she had it. She wanted a frou-frou bag, she made it. Yup, she made it — her bridal bag. And her birdcage veil. And the entourage’s headpieces. And the centerpieces. And the invites, and…

Just looking at the bride’s list of DIY projects for the Jan. 2 vintage-themed wedding makes me exhausted and nervous that if the projects didn’t work out, well, you know… But no one else can pull it off like Len, who shared with us one of her first DIYs — these telegram save-the-dates last year. The moment I saw Orj and Len’s wedding photos by Joey Boquiren, I knew it all worked out. Perfectly.

Enjoy Orj and Len’s so un-DIY-looking DIY wedding at Splendido, Tagaytay!

Check out that veil. No wonder the girl is called DIY queen.

Legs, legs, legs… I wonder where Joey was exactly when he took these two shots below. =P

For some reason, this photo reminds me of Napa Valley in California, one of my fave places ever…

Orj and Len, if you guys can work this hard for a great wedding, I bet you can work as hard to make a very good marriage! Cheers!
