Julie + Lyubomir | Vera Wang Wedding from J Lucas Reyes Studio

A classic Vera Wang, a dizzying amount of candles and lush florals –  just some of the pretty details at this elegant Manila wedding. We love how the couple radiate happiness and how their wedding day was a perfect start to their new life together.

The Ceremony
Since it was raining that day, we decided to hold the ceremony inside a small room of Sofitel. Our stylist created a makeshift garden sanctuary with white blooms and candles lining the aisle. The altar was made of low-hanging vines of green and white. A hundred people were seated on white wooden garden chairs.

The Reception
The reception was held at a bigger ballroom with crystal chandeliers and flowers everywhere. The stage was draped with curtains and fairy lights. Beside it was a three-tiered white cake reflecting the bride’s gown. Everything spelled elegance.

Julie’s Wedding Dress Search
My wedding gown was the first dress I tried on and I instantly fell in love with it. I knew it was the one right away, but I tried on a few more (8-10 more) just to reinforce it in me that nothing else would fit the same way as the first one. I chose it because of its elegance, simplicity and the way it enhances my body shape. It makes me appear taller and my midsection narrower and thinner.


How She Felt In Her Gown
Classy, sexy and elegant

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress
It is a very popular and classic Vera Wang design.  Also, it is still in very good condition and I want another bride to be able to enjoy it, too but at a fraction of the price.
