A Day to Remember

Mia Arcenas and Jacques Christophe Branellec make it official in Brittany

_J9A5122.jpgAfter the lovely Cebuana Mia Arcenas said yes to her boyfriend, Jewelmer’s dashing Jacques Christophe Branellec, last November 2015, the ultra-stylish twosome planned a romantic destination wedding that everyone would be buzzing about long after they exchanged their “I do’s.” The French-Filipino affair took place over a few well-planned days in a small and charming fishing village located in Bretagne in northwestern France.

_J9A5150.jpgThe celebrations began the day before the wedding where the multinational roster of guests toasted the couple at a pastel-and-print-themed welcome cocktail. At the ceremony the next day at the stately Église Notre-Dame de Croaz Batz in Roscoff, the bride was an ethereal vision in one of her own elegant creation, while the groom looked dapper in a Jun Escario suit. This was followed by a gorgeous country chic reception, which was held at a beautiful manor called Manoir de Penfao in St Thegonnec.
