It was a bright and sunny day on the 30th of November, 2012. Β One of my beautiful brides was getting married that afternoon. Β  Β The wedding preps were held in Sofitel, Manila. Β I really love the view of Manila Bay from this hotel. Β And the warmth of the sun just made it more beautiful.

Beautiful Aiya

10 Nov

Yesterday, November 9, 2012, I was in the company of another beautiful bride, Aiya πŸ™‚

At 9am, Manila Peninsula Hotel, the wedding preps for hair and makeup would begin πŸ™‚

A glamorous pair of wedding shoes

Classic wedding bouquet. Β I just love the simplicity of this bouquet. White on white, just looks breathless.

But the one who looked absolutely breathless in her equally stunning gown by the talented Sassa Jimenez was Aiya…

Aiya looked stunning. Β It seemed like she was sitting on a bed of clouds πŸ™‚

Beautiful Aiya!

She wanted her wedding makeup color palette to stick to warmer tones using gold and brown shades for the eyes πŸ™‚

It was such a pleasure doing her mom and sister’s makeup, too. Β Three beautiful ladies in one day! Β This is why I love my job. Β Doesn’t the mother of the bride look like a bride herself? πŸ™‚

Many thanks to my partner, RJ Dela Cruz, who styled all their gorgeous hair that day πŸ™‚

Aiya, congratulations to you and Bert! Didn’t get to meet your groom but he is definitely one lucky guy! πŸ™‚

Thank YOU, Aiya πŸ™‚ Β I really feel blessed to have been part of your wedding day! Best wishes to you both!
