Stephen and Malou

A lot of factors play when you are planning for a beach wedding– flights, manpower, hotel bookings, tides, direction of the wind, weather and… well, the weather.

Stephen and Malou have been really blessed to have the perfect weather to experience the ceremony, reception, fireworks and sky lantern that they wanted. But more than that, we were glad to see that they got what they really desired for their wedding day, and that is to be surrounded by the people that they love.

Yes, the magic of the paradise might have helped, but it was this couple’s love, happiness and kindness that made everything simply magical.

To Stephen and Malou, we would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to have our first wedding in the exquisite island of Boracay and for entrusting us this one magical day in your lives. We pray and wish that God will continue to bless you both with lots of years together and lots of beautiful children.

All our best,
Empire Weddings

Gino and Anne

Cheers to the couple who made us believe that love really goes the distance! With the groom away and the bride planning away, it was still a collaboration and celebration of love and oneness to the last detail. We were privileged to have been part of their beautiful and simple yet elegant Puerto Princesa wedding. It was a celebration of love and friendship; and of families who became one through Gino and Anne. Even though it was a year delayed, we know it was worth the wait.

To dear Gino and Anne, whose love for each other cannot be deterred by time nor distance, we wish you countless years of togetherness full of love and happiness.

All our best,
Empire Weddings

JP and Baby

The story of their friendship began in De La Salle University – Dasmarinas, and their love blossomed in New York. After five years of waiting, a promise ring, a dream engagement ring, and tedious planning thousands of miles away from home – finally, JP and Baby tied the knot in the company of their loving family and friends.

When I first met JP and Baby 11 days before their wedding, it felt as if we already knew each other for a long time. It was not just because we had exchanged A LOT of emails, but also because of their sheer kindness and warmth.

To our first couple who welcomed us into their home and into their lives, we wish you a blissful married and family life. Looking at how much you take care of each other, and with the guidance, love and support of your family and friends, we are sure it will be a wonderful journey ahead.

All our best,
Empire Weddings

Boutonniere 101

On Suits, yes!

A boutonniere is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. If our handsome groom is wearing a coat and a tie , we dedicate the most special boutonniere to the groom. It is a practice that the flower of the groom is taken from the bouquet of his bride.

It is also recommended that all members of the entourage be given boutonnieres to show them that they are special. This is also a way for everyone to differentiate your entourage with other wedding guests who are wearing suits. These boutonnieres are pinned at the lapel portion of the left side of the gentlemen.


On Barongs, must not!

In weddings or events where Barong is the attire specified, please DO NOT put on boutonnieres. Besides that it will ruin your Pina Barong, it is not our custom to put anything on our Filipino costume. Barongs should be worn as is, with no added embellishment.


Get Creative!

Typically, a flower would suffice as a boutonniere. However, you can get creative and use different ones based on:
