A Fall Themed Editorial : An Autumn Romance

Of the four seasons, Autumn could very well be the most romantic of all. For this we bring you this amorous fall-themed editorial exquisitely put together by Project JDG Photography and La Tercera.

From a choice of intimates and robes, to romantic suits & gowns and a beautiful set up that elegantly matches the season with local details & charm, this fall themed editorial exudes a balance of modesty and sensuality. It’s been said that the excitement in love lies in leaving a little bit of mystery in one way and at one point or another. It gives room for a constant unraveling of something new to look forward to.

We love how La Tercera described the emotion and sentiment they associate with this season as a perfect inspiration for this wedding editorial.

Honest Love: Chip and Angeli (SDE by Hello & Co. Cinema)

When you strip a relationship off of its high “kilig” moments, we can only hope there’s an honest love at the core to sustain it.

There’s a certain excitement when you start dating someone. It gives you a rush as you tread on the unknown in hopes of discovering a priceless treasure. But we think the true test of a relationship comes once your adrenaline levels return to normal. What’s left after the high “kilig” getting-to-know moments? We can only hope that you have what Chip and Angeli have: an honest love.

Honest Love

When Chip and Angeli went to the prom together, they felt absolutely no spark between them. It was just the usual affair wherein your friend/cousin/parent finds a date for you so you can pretend to star in your very own prom movie. (Regardless if it’s “Jawbreaker”, “10 Things I Hate About You”, or “Carrie”.)

Eight years later though, when the two were merely Facebook friends, Angeli posts a random thought on her timeline. We assume she might have been ranting, which would’ve been completely forgivable for someone in her last year of medical school. Whatever it was, Chip saw it and for some reason decided to check Angeli’s relationship status. Seeing that she was single, he dropped her a line.

Meant To Be: Marius and Leslie’s Wedding (SDE by Taavi Films)

Most of us believe in the adage, “If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be”. So the hopeless romantic (who are you looking at?) can spend countless hours daydreaming about their soulmate. But how many have actually made the right prediction?

This is the strangely wonderful thing about life. No matter how much we try to plan our lives, we can only have so much control of the future. But the universe has its way of conspiring to take us where we’re meant to be–and with whom we’re meant to be.

Meet Marius and Leslie, whose story started in the confines of the workplace. Leslie probably never thought that the UI designer she was interviewing for the company she worked for would one day become her husband.

Heart and Home: John & Gabs Prenup

heart and home

“I love you – I am at rest with you – I have come home.” – Dorothy L. Sayers

Enough with the glitz, the pomp, and circumstance. For their prenup, Jonathan and Gabrielle decided to ditch the complications and come as they are. In these photos, we catch the couple in a most natural state: laughing with their heads thrown back, sitting by a window sill, stretched out on the couch. It almost seems as if their photographer just happened to be intruding on one of their lazy, laidback Saturdates at home.

Anne and Erwan’s Wedding: 4 Things That Prove Love is an Adventure

Anne & Erwan's Wedding

What first caught my eye in Anne and Erwan’s beautiful wedding video by Jason Magbanua were not the lush rolling hills of New Zealand, or the bunch of good looking people that surrounded the happy couple. It was a sign shown a little past 1:00 mark that said: “Welcome to Middle Earth.”

If you know of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit (books or movies), this reference wouldn’t be lost on you and it somehow leaves us with a feeling that Anne and Erwan are just about to start on the greatest adventure of their lives.

Anne did say it in her wedding vow, but even without it, it’s very easy to see why that is so –love and marriage is a lifelong quest that the husband and wife promise to embark on together. And while there were no orcs, hobbits, elves, or wandering lost kings in the video, here are four things that prove that saying (or singing!) “I Do” in front of God can be the biggest adventure of anyone’s life.

Safari-Themed Prenup: Miko and Lea

safari-themed prenup

Miko and Lea have been together for a little over two years and now they are about to walk down the aisle. But before anything else, it’s good to have something to remember prior to this end goal. Prepping for the wedding can be stressful but that doesn’t mean that you can’t insert a lot of enjoyable moments like having a safari-themed prenup shoot with The Daydreamer Studios.

Having met through a dating app, Miko and Lea wasted no time to get acquainted with each other. And even in short span of time, they discovered how they complement each other.

“We wanted to have more photos of us. We didn’t have long years as boyfriend and girlfriend and so we want to have beautiful photos captured together.”

Post-Its Game Proposal: Story of Ricky and Cathy

Post-its Game Proposal

A cup of coffee can lead to many things: a productive day, energy to keep you going, and a lifetime of love. For Ricky and Cathy, sharing more than a hundred cups of coffee between them paved the way for a walk to the altar.

Ricky and Catherine met and fell in love in a coffee shop when they were college students. Over cups of coffee, they bonded on school work and slowly got to know each other better. The walls of the café stood witness to their blossoming relationship, and provided a venue for their doses of caffeine and talking about their dreams.

So it’s no surprise when, eight years later, Ricky chose a coffee shop to mark a milestone in their relationship. He picked Luna Specialty Coffee in BGC to gather their closest friends and ask Cathy to be his wife.

“She’s been my best friend, my travel buddy, and my girlfriend and we’ve grown together through a lot of adventures. The decision to propose came when I felt that all my goals and aspirations I had already involved her.”

Pampanga Mass Wedding: A Stylish, No-Cost Affair

Pampanga mass wedding

There’s an urban legend that states you need truckloads of cash to get married. But this Pampanga mass wedding proves you can get hitched in style with literally no cash at all.

For many of us, the road to forever is long and arduous, taking many unexpected twists and turns. We’re not just talking about all the bad dates you have to plow through (and pay for) to find Mr. or Ms. Right. Face it: once you’ve put a ring on that finger, expenses keep multiplying in the pursuit of  a dream wedding. But not everyone can afford to pay hundreds of thousands for one day—even a very important one. This reality was the seed of today’s feature: a Pampanga mass wedding organized by Events and Concepts by Voltaire Zalamea.

While we’re also part of a multi-billion peso industry, our priority at The Top Knotters is to celebrate #WeddingsWithHeart. Hence, we love featuring heartfelt occasions regardless of how many zeroes there are in the budget. This story, in particular, is something we feel really privileged to share with you today. Keep on reading to find out how dozens of wedding suppliers, all Top Knotters, joined forces (for free!) to give sixteen couples the Pampanga mass wedding they had never even dreamt of.
