Makati Shangri-La Wedding | Wayne and Marie

Personally, there’s no flower comparable in elegance and class than the red rose. Deemed to be overrated and cliché, it’s not so commonly used nowadays and the trend has been bright colorful bouquets. But for Wayne and Marie’s big day, its dark red beauty against the classic wedding emphasized the kind of celebration they wished to have. A clump of rich hues of red held by a woman with a natural tan and donning on one of the hottest gowns we’ve ever captured – Marie was a bride on fire.

There was a good balance of contradicting elements for this wedding. Similar to the qualities the red rose imparts, their wedding was intimate and personal. On the other hand, it was set at the modern mecca of Makati and the ceremony took place at the lofty top of Greenbelt residences. The guests were handpicked and only their closest friends and family were present to witness their special day. There were neither playful ideas nor flashy wedding gimmicks but that did not take away the essence of the marriage. Instead, it presented a wedding that was subtly sexy yet classic and timeless altogether.
