Patricia struck me as such as sweet somewhat shy girl who apparently has huge amounts of talent. =) For Patricia, I created a mint green gown in duchess satin, organza and beaded white lace. Later that evening, the skirt was removed to reveal the Diva in Izah.=)

Last May 17, 2014 I was the featured designer at GMA7 ‘s WeddingsTV produced by the fabulous team of Marnie Manicad. Of course I was super kilig to be part of this show!!! =D Funny I seemed so serious here, I’m usually more bubbly in real life (obviously nervous in front of a camera!) My blushing brides who can attest to that.
Thank you WeddingsTV for giving Filipino brides a preview of my RTW Bridal Gown Collection! =)
Thank you Wedding Essentials Magazine for sharing our story and photos in your real weddings issue! =)
It’s actually been over a year since our secret garden themed wedding reception was held at the Glass Garden Events Venue. In a way it feels recent since I still remember scenes and emotions from our wedding day vividly from having a mini panic attack just before the doors in the Church opened and being ridiculously thirsty and hungry after the reception (we actually had a post-wedding Mcdo meal in our pambahay clothes wearing our wedding shoes since we forgot to bring slippers)!!! I am still very much happy with the wedding gown I created for myself despite the countless designs I discarded until finally putting my foot down and committing to this one. But I am happiest because our wedding has brought us our little princess Ava. Yep, everything happened fast… very fast. It’s been a crazy ride but I’m thankful, relieved and happy that I have Martin by my side.
When I met Sarabeth, it was already for her first and only fitting. She’s a blushing bride from California and arrived for her wedding in Glass Garden just a couple of days before. Since her family is very traditional, the first time she fitted her completed wedding gown was already on the day of her wedding! It fit like a glove!=)
After the wedding I got this lovely message from Sarabeth :D
“maraming maraming salamat po sa pag design ng gown ko po, sobrang ganda po, pati po mga friends cousins and mama ko po nagandahan ang galing niyo po Ms. Camille kahit once ko lang po siya na i fit at di ko pa po nakikita yung design nun na actual, nung mismong araw lang din po ng wedding ko nakita po yung gown, na pa WOW po ako, bilib po talga ako sa talent niyo po.. maraming salamat po.. and i’m so proud po na kayo po ang gumawa ng gown ko… thank you so much po.. God Bless.. mwaaah “

Thank you Ms. Jeng of Megapizels for sending me the photos!:D
How cool is this priest?!! Totally game for a selfie!
My mom called my attention and told me that one of my blushing brides, Candy, has her wedding featured in the new Real Weddings issue of Wedding Essentials Magazine.=) I have to admit I’m so proud that WE handpicked their wedding and shared their story!! Of course my mom was proud too ;)
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. =)
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. =)

Here’s the thoughtful message I received from Isa ;)
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. =)
