Fun Photo Session for babies and kids at The Picture Company

Wanting to give our baby girl a pre-birthday photo shoot, we checked several photographers and photo studios for a practical photo package. Good thing we saw an ad on Instagram featuring The Picture Company’s portrait session package promo. Originally P5600, the portrait session now costs only P990! So we went to The Picture Company Trinoma…

Wedding Gown by Desino Dulce

Every bride has her own dream wedding gown.  Some want big and fluffy ball gowns, while others prefer the sexy mermaid cut gown.  Some would die for Vera Wang’s iconic wedding dresses, and some would happily buy ready-to-wear (RTW) gowns from simple bridal shops. Regardless of the style and the maker of their gowns, I…

Richgold Weddings

Since I worked as a part-time wedding coordinator when I was 22, I had the opportunity to learn about different suppliers in the wedding industry even before I got engaged.  One of my “dream” suppliers was the burgeoning caterer Richgold Weddings.  What made me interested in Richgold was the elegant and modern event styling on…

Wedding Hair and Make Up by Jammy Villas

Since I’m not a make-up junkie, the last supplier I thought about for our wedding is a hair and make-up artist (HMUA in the world of wedding preps).  “Oh really, do I need one?” was my initial thought whenever someone would inquire about the make-up artist I booked for the wedding. But despite my manang…

Thanks to our photo editing buddy, Adobe Photoshop! 🙂 As per the advice of my sis-in-law, we had the invites printed by…

DIY Origami Bouquets and Boutonnieres for Entourage

The frustrated craftsperson that I was, I forced myself to have even just one do-it-yourself (DIY) project for our wedding.  So I thought of doing origami bouquets and boutonnieres for our entourage. Not only would it save us money, it would also be an opportunity for me, the “feeling” romantic bride, to do something personal,…

With the specific prayer intention of having good weather on our wedding day (September 5, 2015) and on our vacation in Cebu, we visited the Monasterio de Sta. Clara along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City. Traditionally,  saying a prayer for good weather on their wedding day has been part of the wedding preparation of many…

Tea Party themed Bridal Shower by Sisters & Titas of Manila

My sweet sisters-in-law Manay and Karen organized my absolutely wholesome Tea Party-themed bridal shower at our home sweet home. To address my two major weaknesses, the first part of the bridal shower was a cooking and make-up tutorial!  😊  I must admit that cooking and good grooming are essential in surviving my entry into wifeyhood,…

Prenup Pictorial with Studio1

With every trusted photo & vid supplier inserting the pre-wedding pictorial to their professedly affordable packages, we ended up riding the millennial generation’s “pre-nup” bandwagon. Yey! But photos of us clad in vogue pieces and posing before a long, winding staircase might just send a wrong impression to our future grandchildren. Sa totoo lang, wala…
