Brian & Jaycelle Engagement Photos: Young & Beautiful

Post Content

Mac_Dy_J&B_eng-2419I discovered Lana del Rey just recently before our first engagement photo shoot. I instantaneously loved her song “Young and Beautiful”. It’s hauntingly beautiful. It’s mature and sexy. She quickly became my style peg for this first shoot.

All these years, me and my B took tons of photos together. Most are twee-tums, cutesy-tootsie photos and for our engagement shoot, I wanted something different. Something different from the “usual” us.

Mac_Dy_J&B_eng-2426(1)I’ve seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant
And Bel Air now
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

“Young And Beautiful” by Lana del Rey

Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday

Post Content

Having a birthday wish list was part of my little tradition since 2009 and most of them were fulfilled and granted (see the others here and here). I missed to write one last year, but having my B proposed to me was the greatest wish I could ever ask for, exactly on my birthday last year — I got engaged!

This year, another lifelong wish was granted — after a year-long of preparation, we already tied the knot and I’m already B’s missus. *swoon*

So writing my birthday wish list now does not only apply to me, but to my now-husband.

Warm Gray, White & Wood Living Room{ warm gray, white & wood living room }

Under the Stairs Storage{ make use of under the stairs as storage }

Tidy Kitchens{ tidy kitchen }

Entryway{ an entryway in our apartment }

Gallery Wall{ lots of lovely photos for our gallery wall }

Yes — most of my wish this year is to rearrange and redecorate our love nest! *grins*

I have more birthday wishes, so stay tuned for the Part 2 of my Hooray Thursday: Big Birthday Wish List.

Happy birthday to all the November celebrants!!! *kisses*

Darling B created this video as a surprise for me but due to time constraint at our wedding reception, this was not played for me and for our guests’ pleasure.

I am totally smitten with how creatively he used our “traditional” 10-shots photos by making it into this delightful video. His got mad editing skills, I tell you! So proud!

There’s something touching looking, watching our photos from years ago. Photos tell so much just by the way we smile, we laugh and we goof around each other. This is one of the perks of living in this digital age — we get to capture and preserve these beautiful memories. And I got a husband (<— insert kilig moments here) who is beyond amazing for being so awesomely creative! Everything he touches become special. I am urging him to share his talent to the world, but that would be a different post!

ThisĀ 10-shots video will totally fall under our yearly tradition. Enjoy watching! xxx
