Fierce. Raw. Poetic. I sum up today’s engagement photo shoot in these 3 words. And what I love about this is that, it’s a far cry from the usual eye-candy e-sessions we see. Don’t get me wrong, I do love those darling pre-nup sessions that are all filled up with rainbow colors and cutesy props. Oh, I do. But today’s e-sesh is NOT that. It is more than just a collaboration of cute props and sweet couple. It is fiercely a cut above of what we usually see because Lester and Janine’s engagement session is a visual poetry.
Their stylist Geofredo Lagria shares the concept behind this shoot, “The story is about an Indian guy who met this pretty girl in the middle of the woods. They met, got to know each other until the girl joined their tribe and they lived happily ever after.” Oh you gotta admit it, it’s not everyday that you get to see an e-sesh with warbonnets and Indian tribes as the theme.
It is equally amazing how their photographer, Jeff Garban of Green and Purple Photos was able to capture this concept and execute it in this one beautiful visual poetry we now see. This e-sesh is just too epic for words. See the story unfold below to believe. Enjoy! 🙂

Yes, that’s right, this movie is actually a rich source of wedding inspirations. A sequel to Meet the Parents, this movie rightfully ends with the wedding of Greg and Pam — a riotous but fun celebration by the lake.

While their reception decors were vibrant and super colorful, I decided to take snippets of inspirations only and have come up with a much tamer version of their wedding. Still following the bohemian tropical beach wedding vibe (without the actual beach), here are the important deets to take note: flowy, free-form dresses for the bride and guests, sweet smelling flowers to be placed on everyone’s hair, use of orchids as the main floral decor (and of course, the bridal bouquet should be orchids too), a beach inspired wedding cake (with seashells deets galore!), and my most favorite detail of all — the inverted umbrellas in the reception! These mismatched inverted umbrellas are a breaker from the usual but famous paper lanterns. Whimsical, fancy and fun. With the Meet the Fockers movie inspired wedding, a joyous night filled with magic and dancing will surely follow! 🙂

I’ve always wanted to do a citrus inspired palette. Well, I was mostly torn in choosing what citrus colors I will include. Will it be Pink and Orange? Yellow and Lime? Orange and Lemon? I have made up my mind today and here’s what I’ve come up — a yummy concoction of Pink + Orange + Yellow.
These colors actually remind me of lemonades. Yes, lemonades. Oh geez, I think all the juices I have been drinking today have taken over me! Tee-hee. So anyhow, here’s why you should grab this color palette for your wedding. This delicious combination of pinks, oranges, and yellows is sooo refreshing to the eyes they could quench your thirst just by looking at them! Plus, they are happy colors. Dull and gloom would never exist if you have romantic pink, yummy orange and lemon yellow on your plate. 🙂 And they’re just perfect for Spring / Summer outdoor weddings. There! Have the freshest wedding ever with this citrus-inspired color palette! Enjoy!
