Claudette

21 Apr
Another wonderful highlight for 2020 is the wedding of one of my bestfriends, Claudette. Clauds and Peter got married last January 17 and it was one of those days that I did not want to end. I got to spend the entire day with my high school barkada, got to celebrate and witness the beginning of Clauds’ and Peter’s new life together as husband and wife, AND we got to wear sneakers all day! Thank you, Clauds, for those shoes that are now one of my faves to wear! Haha!

Sharing with you some snapshots by NQ Modern Photography.

And here are some snapshots I took right after we did Clauds’ hair and makeup. Clauds’ hair was styled by one of my faves, George Aliben. Thanks so much, George, for the vavavoom hair!!! I also chose to use my Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow Palette on Clauds’ eyes plus lashes from Bohktoh to bring out her beautiful eyes even more.

Clauds has flawless skin so I just added bronze highlighters on her cheeks. I love Laura Mercier’s Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder. What I used on Clauds was No. 5,
Medium to Deep.

This photo pretty much sums up the entire day. I love this photo of Clauds so much. I don’t remember what we were laughing about exactly but I felt so much love and joy all around! Wish we could go back to this day and just celebrate Clauds’ and Peter’s wedding all over again. That was a wonderful day indeed.
Also special thanks to our dear friend, the super talented, Maureen Disini, for designing all our gorgeous gowns. These are my beautiful high school besties: (starting from the left) Dom, Angela, Clauds and Isabel. We are missing our other bestie, Emma, who celebrated with us through FaceTime in Sydney. Hahaha!
Can’t wait to give you a big hug, girls!!!
Looking forward to that day. Love you all.

View from the hotel room ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful morning indeed!

It was an early start for hair and makeup last September 6, 2014 ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I really don’t mind waking up in the wee hours of the morning.ย  It’s so peaceful knowing almost everyone is still asleep ๐Ÿ™‚

Our wedding preps were in Manila Hotel, one of my favorite hotels, and the bride was one of my favorite preschool teachers at my son’s previous school, Teacher Kit ๐Ÿ™‚

Teacher Kit was my son’s very first teacher.ย  Damien Crow was about two years old and he couldn’t speak yet.ย  So there was a time when he would bite his other classmates when he would get frustrated.ย  This was our biggest issue at that time.ย  Haha!ย  Thank you for your patience, Teacher Kit! ๐Ÿ™‚
