Entourage Cards

I am sharing with you the Entourage Cards I made last year for my female entourage (secondary sponsors only, no bridesmaids). I made them out of different kinds of papers in the shades of pistachio green and ivory white.    I think they're cute even in their simplest form. The Entourage Card not only served as a "save-the-date" card for my secondary sponsors but also ... READ MORE

Our Wedding Monogram

Our wedding monogram was inspired by something I stumbled upon in the internet.   I was looking for something unique and yet, reflective of our colors and the beauty of damask design.   Here's what I found:I liked how the "D" and "L" were combined.   I wish for us to have this same monogram since AJ and I's family ...

Trial Make-up with Chichi Sotomil

I opted to have a trial make-up with her first before booking her, even if I've seen her portfolio online and found all her previous brides on their best and ... READ MORE

Pre-Nup Pictures

We had our informal pre-nup shoot at Bonifacio High Street last February 20, 2011. The shoot was done by Alizza "Leng" Mistades, an up-and-coming photographer who gave away "freenups" or free pre-nup shoots to 30 members of Weddings at Work (referred to simply as "w@w").  I was one of the early brides who registered for her pre-nup and AJ and I were really happy for this ...
