Last September 8, 2014 was the wedding of one of my favorite and sweetest clients, Isha πŸ™‚Β  I first met her when I did her makeup for her prom.Β  Such a smart and beautiful lady, this one.Β  Then I’d see her one prom after another.Β  Haha!Β  Such a heartthrob!Β  Then it was her grad ball then debut πŸ™‚Β  I remember I was almost about to give birth during her debut but I really didn’t want to miss that day.

I was so happy and excited when I found out she was engaged and that she wanted me to save the date to be her makeup artist for the wedding!Β  I was too excited.Β  Isha is like a younger sister to me.Β  And on this wonderful Monday morning in September, I was at her house, reunited with the kindest family, the De Vera’s πŸ™‚

I was also so excited to see my handmade crocheted dolls in Liza’s room! πŸ™‚Β  Liza is Isha’s beautiful mom who adopted two of my Googlees.Β  Awwww, thanks so much, Liza πŸ™‚Β  They’re so lucky to be in such a beautiful home πŸ™‚

One beautiful Sunday last March 3, 2013, I was so excited to head over to Intramuros, one of my favorite places in Manila, to do makeup on another lovely bride, Casini πŸ™‚

She was checked in at The Bayleaf Intramuros, a new hotel that just opened late last year. Β It was a really nice hotel and the staff was very helpful. Β I bring around five bags whenever I do weddings and you can tell when the staff is more than willing to help you. Β At Bayleaf, they were happy to help πŸ™‚

It was the 5th of January, 2013. Β My very first wedding of the year.

IMG_7679lores

In one of my favorite hotels, Manila Hotel.

I met Trisha exactly a year before her wedding and I couldn’t believe how a year can go by so quickly. Β Trisha wanted something simple, very clean and natural for her bridal hair and makeup. Β She was already beautiful without makeup and I didn’t want her to feel uncomfortable by doing anything smoky or too dramatic that will change her features πŸ™‚
