Fashion Friday: Tal Kahlon 2015 Bridal

It’s a rare thing when an involuntary “wow” escapes you upon seeing a photograph, but that was definitely not the case for me as I went through this stunning Tal Kahlon bridal collection. Each and every piece is feminine, elegant, and brimming with jaw-dropping drama. Wouldn’t it be a dream to wear one of these luxurious dresses? I must say, my eye is on that beaded deep V-neck number with a gorgeous, dramatic cape. With photos taken around the romantic streets of Spain, we can be sure we’re in for a visual treat. Happy swooning!

Lovely Tuscan Engagement

Oh, Italy, Italy, Italy. Where do I even begin? You have left me smitten from the first day I laid eyes on your romantic towns and feasted on your delectable cuisine. And today’s gorgeous feature has only but deepen my love for you. After making us swoon over their Hong Kong e-seshLeo and Jessica went and explored the history-laden streets of Florence and the quaint Italian countryside to give us even more gorgeousness to gush over. With the golden sunlight on their faces and the rolling Tuscan hills in the background, this sweet couple created timeless memories with Facibeni Fotografia by their side to capture every moment. Bellissima!

Treasured Memories

Since the launch of B&B Hong Kong, quite a number of people have asked me to share photos from my own wedding, so I figured the perfect day has finally come. Today, my husband, Jon, and I are grateful to celebrate our two year anniversary, and what a privilege it is to be able to look back through photos and relive the best day of our lives! Despite having an inevitably long guest list, Jon and I really wanted our wedding to feel intimate and personal. We decided to do a destination wedding at the magnificent Shangri-La Boracay on a long weekend, so we can spend more time with friends and family. It was indeed the most special weekend, and beyond all the little details, perfect or imperfect, we will always cherish the outpouring of love we both received that day, trusting that these memories will spur us on through the years to come. To my dear husband, Happy 2nd Anniversary! Thank you for your patience and relentless love. I am beyond blessed to live life with you by my side.
