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

Decode the Wedding Dress: Sleeves

Sleeves can have a remarkable impact on a bridal gown, sleeves add a feel of modesty and tradition while strapless gowns are romantic and youthful. The trend nowadays is to opt for sleeves in sheer fabric or lace for a classic and elegant look. The length of the sleeves can also have slimming effects depending on the placement. Here’s an illustration of commonly applied sleeves for wedding gowns.

Blushing Bride: Grace

Wedding planning can be challenging, but despite the hurdles Grace came out as a blushing bride!=) I wouldn’t go into the details, but her calm demeanor is admirable and refined (cheesy as it sounds she really is a gracious and giving person.) In the end Grace got her dream wedding, we talked right after her wedding and she described it as “perfect, simply perfect.”

Hi Camille!  

It’s been almost a year na pala since we had our first meeting at your shop, how time flies! And now, we’re both married. :)  As promised, we’re sharing with you some of our wedding photos from Ruffa+Mike (your photographers too) who did an amazing job capturing all the happy moments of our big day. I’m sure when you get your photos din, you’ll never get tired of looking at them.   

Thank you again for my lovely gown. It will hold a lot of memories, not just of our wedding, but of all the fond memories we had from the day you had sketched it, to our fittings, and finally wearing it on that very special day. :)  

We wish you all the best, and we hope to see you around again soon. Maybe at a friend’s wedding sa Glass Garden.  

Congratulations again to you and Martin. You’re a gorgeous bride, and your gowns are sooo pretty!   

Have a great weekend!   
Your blushing bride,
 Jhundy

Our Wedding SDE Martin + Camille

I’m finally married and proud to be Mrs. Camille Garcia Cruz!=) I’ve created hundreds of gowns but there’s nothing like creating a wedding gown for my own wedding. There’s a saying “always a bridesmaid but never the bride,” in my case “always the designer.” Now it’s my turn to be the blushing bride and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it. Martin and I both had our preps in homes we grew up in, it was very symbolic to come from different homes and finally cap the night in a new home to call our own. We had our ceremony at Santuario de San Jose, the Church where we actually attend mass. Before we even became a couple, we would already bump into each other at Church. It was just fitting to get married in the Church that’s been a part of our lives since the very beginning.

Here’s my SDE by Sir Ferdie of Megapixels. Bridal gowns and entourage gowns by Camille Garcia Cruz ;)
