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.

Gorgeous Debutante: Eunice

Eunice had an Alice in Wonderland Themed Debut (Tim Burton Version) at the Edsa Shangri-la. =) During our initial appointment, she actually showed me some of her pegs, I came up with a totally different design but thankfully Eunice, her sister and her mom liked it more.=) I’m really thankful when I have clients who are open minded to new ideas, creative freedom is bliss!!!

Roan and Tom’s Onsite Video

Roan and Tom had a beautiful intimate wedding at Enderun, Mckinley Hill. I was blessed to have attended their reception and witness the outburst of love from the couples and both their families. Roan is yet another bride from Dubai and her entourage are from different parts of the world. Though most communication was just through email, her gown was absolutely perfect on her. Was thrilled to hear when Tom told me she looked like an angel as she walked down the aisle. I also created her mom’s and entourage gowns in black and white.

Blushing Bride: Camille

Camille and Brianne had a beautiful outdoor ceremony with the sun shining through with lush pine trees as their backdrop at the Baguio Country Club. Camille who’s complete first name is exactly like mine, is another bride from Melbourne Australia, referred by one of my previous brides, Honey. We immediately hit it off and her visits were always a quirky fun and adrenalin spiked! She flew in and we rushed a fitting before she left for Melbourne.

Camille’s drop-waist gown is encrusted with silver beads and Swarovski crystals with a sheer tulle neckline and a dramatic tulle skirt. For her reception, we changed her belt to black for a modern look.

Divine Debutante: Shelanie

Shelanie Nicolan had an unbelievable debut, with the a grand hollywood set-up that was actually created by her dad! To everyone’s surprise, the whole set-up was also a surprise to Shelanie. Effortlessly pretty, Shelanie is also sweet and easy to talk to.

I created a soft powder blue gown for her with an asymmetrical neckline embellished with gemstones. With a tiered skirt in organza, highlighted with silver beadwork.

Blushing Bride: Nezi

Nezi is a bride unlike any other, first off we’ve been in the same barkada for literally half of our lives or more! We also went to the same high school and we we’re even blockmates in college! When she asked me to create her wedding gown, it was definite and much appreciated YES!!!

I had butterflies in my stomach earnestly anticipating her walk down the aisle of St. Bennedict Church in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I imagined that was a tinge of how Ramon felt like when he received his bride. Nezi was breathtaking and simply elegant. My fellow and gorgeous bridesmaids instantly had tears in their eyes. At that moment, I was happy to realize the culmination of all our efforts at last fulfilled it’s purpose.

Congratulations to the “kilig” couple, their wedding ceremony and reception at Bellevue, Alabang was filled with nothing but “kilig” moments. It was heartfelt, seamless and beautiful.

Her wedding gown is created in Duchess Satin with Organza overlay encrusted encrusted with subtle beads and diamontes. Her entire bodice is asymmetrical and pleated to further emphasize Nezi’s incredibly tiny waist!
