The Make Up Artist:
It felt good hanging out with Sabs. We were schoolmates during HighSchool. I was a freshman and she was a senior. During the Senior-Freshman Acquaintance day she was my "Big Sister" That day, I was given the full make up while going around campus. So when I heard and saw in magazines that she pursued a career by making all the brides pretty during their big day, I wasn't surprised. I was so giddy and happy that she was free for our wedding! When Jong bought me wedding magazines, it was so nice to see her name written on almost every page as the make up artist :) Coolness. After I booked Sabs, I couldn't stop bragging about it to my HS friends!

Thank you Sabs and Tony for making me look super girly that day :) Jong loved it!

The Photographers:
I adored Jeff and Lisa ever since I saw their link from Jason Magbanua's site.

So curious I was a stalker. So excited I was that kid from Despicable me shouting "OMG it's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!!" Yeah that feeling.

Every update of their blog, I was waiting and asking for more. For the first time during wedding preps, I had the "This is it" moment. I asked Jong to book them and made it a non-negotiable.
Ultimately I was emailing Lisa and sharing nonsense stories. It was like talking to an old friend you haven't seen for a very long time, yep, I felt that close. Haha. Anyways,with lots and lots of planning and location changes before the engagement session none of those plans came true. It was all about what we felt that day, no props, no balloons, no flowers, just us.

Jason Magbanua, Jeff and Lisa, Sabs Hernandez = Non negotiable

With that team, we knew it was going to be an awesome wedding day.. and it was!

Super Hug :)

[Thoughts] Death of a Grandfather

Excerpts from my previous blog: Cupid's Arrow

"I remember when I was about 5 or 6, during Christmas when all the gifts have been given and its time to give out money, we would line up to Daddy and he would give me a whole heap of 5peso bills! As a young one, I thought I was rich already! That I could buy practically anything I want! But I always gave it to my parents so I can put it in my bank account and all that.. But about an inch thickness of 5 peso bills! Haha!! My Daddy loves to whistle at night, he whistles anything, although I dont know the tunes he whistles to, everytime I see him he'd be smiling.. My Daddy also loved walking, he takes public transport all the time and doesn't even complain one bit!

There is no other way to end a conversation with Daddy except for the words I love you, he sees to it that every phone call, those would be his last words... Daddy will always be remembered as the Man who was always there...."

This excerpt was made by me 3years ago... After reading this, it felt like I was in a time travel and that we just laid Daddy to rest. Daddy missed our wedding, he would've been so proud and happy but I know that day he was there. He made sure that everything went perfect for me and Jong, he made sure that everything was in order. He was there tied to my bouquet so he can see everything up close.
Thanks Dad.
Daddy I'm sure you're happy wherever you are, playing chess and whistling till your opponent makes his move. I wish I can have that one more hug Dad. I miss you.

Wedding: Sabs Hernandez/Tony Dusich Trial Hair and Make Up

Sabs Hernandez's Blog post :)

Me so Happy!!
Only 1 week to go before Kamille's big day! My bride from Australia had her trial session today with me and Tony. They were having their prenup pictorial today and Tony and I agreed that this was the perfect look for her.

Kamille is very kalog so a more casual and yet sweet was the way to go.

I airbrushed her makeup, contour and cheeks and did everything else by hand,
which is still the best for precision. LOVELY!

I just love iridescent powders!

Everyday I love you...

Everyday I love you...
and I'd give up forever to touch you..
