Hey beautiful people..... Its been a long time coming, so today I'm sharing the most beautiful day of my life with you guys. Enjoy!
The stars of the day - My Wedding Gown was made by the amazing Veejay Floresca, after 4 sketches and 3 skype fittings she was created, it was everything I wanted, just enough lace, tulle, beading and embroidery to go round, Filipinos most definitely know their craft. My 2nd/Reception dress was a Tadashi Shoji dress, Golden Globe Award winner Octavia Spencer rocked this dress too, it was the perfect reception dress. A big shout out to my aunty who wanted me to experience the "trying on dresses with your mother" feeling, after trying on several dresses we both agreed that this was a winner.
My favorite guy rocked an Okunoren Bespoke suit
I wore these tiffany blue shoes by Aruna Seth - My decision to wear flats = Best decision ever
Everyone getting ready.
Me totally being the bride aka the most important person of the day.
My favorite part of my dress - THE BACK
My girls were AWESOME, I love you guys so much
Segi wore a Max Azria dress, and my bridesmaids wore dresses by Vicky Tiel and Badgley Mischka. I bought the dresses all by myself shuttling between stores in New York, it was not an easy task but I was determined and it was worth it :o) .... A tip for future brides, you don't have to find your bridesmaids dresses at your typical bridal stores. I found these dresses, and my reception dress at the Evening Wear sections of stores.
Big big love to my sister friends Fiky and Misty, it is a testimony that they made it to the wedding... They were both involved in a terrible accident on their way home from my bridal shower/hen night a week before the wedding, but as always God is above...The crutches were definitely not stopping Fiky.
We are married, yayyy
At the reception.....
Our colors were Mint, Silver/Grey and Blush
I've always loved the Cathedral length veil and I was not going to wear any other kind of veil... Having said that, it was a pain in the bum and a huge relief to eventually take it off.
The whole crew, we look like we should be on the cover of a TV show or something.
My Cousins looked so pretty in their mint dresses
In my reception Dress
I cannot begin tell you just how awesome that day was, but it really was. Our friends and family are the absolute best and I am so so glad that EVERYBODY had fun, don't believe me? Wait till our next post, it was such a good time that I didn't even remember to be upset about some of the naughty things some vendors did, I just sat up there and couldn't stop smiling. I pray for many many happy days like this for me and for you too, AMEN!!!
