Blushing Bride: Chingkay

I met Chingkay through my very supportive and loyal friend, Arianne, who’s been my friend since third grade! They’re lawyers from the same firm and I’m so glad Arianne referred her to me. Not only is Chingkay lovely, she has a very pleasant mild-mannered personality (but a toughie at court!) When she wore her wedding gown for the first time in my bridal boutique, there was definitely a wow factor, she was blooming BLOOMING. She definitely exemplifies what is means to be a blushing bride. =)

Blushing Bride: Isa

Probably the best subject I ever read on my inbox was “My beautiful wedding dress” from one of my brides Isa. Funny thing was a guy referred her to me, nope not a girl… Enrico happened to be the groom and was a good friend of mine way back in college as freshmen in Ateneo. Isa also just happened to be a schoolmate from Poveda. Of course the pressure was on! Isa was already so pretty as it is and I had to make sure her wedding gown would be perfect on her even while I was pregnant. I definitely didn’t want to disappoint anyone especially the groom who was so supportive and who entrusted the love of his life to me.

In the end, everyone is happy including me. =)

Camille Garcia Featured in Inspirations Magazine

Very very thrilled and thankful to see one of my wedding gowns on the cover with multiple spread features inside! I had no idea that they were going to put it on the cover but I’m so glad it’s there! I only found out when I was at the Wedding Expo and my sexytary, Rona, pointed it out to me. This issue out now at bookstores and stands everywhere. =)

Camille Garcia Cruz at GMA7′s Wish Ko Lang

It’s an amazing opportunity to find myself in a position where I can make someone’s dreams come true. I’m so glad I can help out in making Armie and Alvin’s dream wedding a reality.=) On February 7, 2014 Alvin proposed to Armie to be her wife at Top of the City by Chef Jessie in Eastwood.

Blushing Bride: Justine

Justine was actually referred by another one of my blushing brides Bani.=)  I’m so lucky to have worked with these two wonderful women. Was completely floored when I read Justine’s message, it definitely made me smile from ear to ear.=) Take a look at the beautiful bride, her photos speak louder than words.

Here’s Justine’s message:

Hi Camille!

First of all congratulations on the arrival of your little angel! I am sure you and your hubby are enjoying every happy moment with your little one.

This message is long overdue. I just want to say THANK YOU for making my lovely wedding dress! It was modern but classic, romantic but not too ‘frou-frou’ – exactly what I envisioned it to be! Having my dress done two months before the wedding was icing on the cake and it surely took one big weight off my shoulders. It’s not just your creativity that is admirable, but your time/project management skills, too! Haha.

After my final dress fitting, I sent a picture of my dress to my mom who can be overly critical. Her reply was very short but sweet: “Your dress is beautiful!” Even my sister, aunts and close friends agreed. They can also be my worst critics so I know they did not say it just to flatter the bride-to-be. Again, thank you! Please also extend my thanks to Rona who patiently assisted me during the wedding preparations.

Here are some pictures of me wearing your lovely creation. Pictures are by Nicolai Melicor, our wedding photographer.

All the best,
Justine

Gorgeous Debutante: Kristine

Now it’s finally’s Kristine’s turn to be legal and to have an epic debutante ball of her own. =) I also had the honor of creating her older sister’s gown a little over a year ago and it has always been a wonderful experience with the siblings and their mom from the very beginning!

Kristine looked effortlessly elegant in a tasteful strapless red gown with a huge ball skirt with a sexy cutout at the back.

Blushing Bride: Janelle

I met Janelle over a year ago to design her wedding gown. She’s definitely not your princess type of bride, no fuss, no beads and definitely no pouffy anything for this surfer girl. We opted for a delicate wedding gown that fitted her body perfectly in sophisticated corded French Lace that definitely sends the message “simple but elegant.” Both Jan and Janelle are into surfing and roughing it out with nature so their beach-themed wedding definitely reflected their cool easy going personalities.=)

Blushing Bride: Maica

Maica is a lovely person from Doha, Qatar. Despite our long distance status, creating her wedding gown was such a breeze. Every fitting was like a breath of fresh air, how she smiles in her wedding photos is also genuinely how she really is in person during fittings! Fittings were perfect if not near perfect and yes, her bridal gown really does have a slit!;) And why not?!
