Laced in love:: Karla + Mark

I've had brides thank us profusely with tight hugs and words that melt the heart, Karla gave me three cheeky kisses! Oh my goodness! We had a child bride so giddy and happy we were able to give her a lovely lovely reception.

I'm still crushing on their couple's nook. We had a simple yet so sleek and classy set with lush florals. While we were doing the flowers, our senior florist and I were taking notes on the direction of the floral styles we've been doing recently. Less of the structured but more of those which looks very organic. Au naturale! Very fluid.
The cake is as lovely as the florals. Hand piped lace by the mister and delicate paper thin roses.

Simply in Love:: Eunice + Peter

She says we were one of her two non negotiables. My heart melts. Eunice and Peter's wedding was simplicity exuding with so much class and refinement. I can't help but go over Eunice's photo in her Jaz Cerezo gown and composite red bouquet. Oh my! She was a sight to behold.

Congratulations Eunice and Peter! Your love story is for the books.

Little Rascals:: Marty's 1st

Little Marty is just too cute... He melts the hearts of many like a Popsicle on the Fourth of July! And so does his first birthday party! The Little Rascals was my era, Alfalfa was just too cute singing and oh his Dear Darla letter is something I still remember.

Lutece + Michael

So the weather forecast was scattered thunderstorms! Not even that could put a stop on Lutece and Michael's loveliness. I knew a cloudy sky will make setting up easier at MalacaƱang of the North - one of a few weddings venues I love love love to work at. When we had 5 minute drizzles, I knew that they are little blessings that will water our orchids having at the dance floor. Just to make sure we get to have both worlds, an outdoor reception and a safe plan B- indoor reception, we switched some details last minute.

How do you love that lovely lovely hand piped bottom layer cake for the couple? The sugar roses petals are so thin, light passes through.

Lutece's bouquet had three kinds of roses- David Austin, Ecuadorian and Paper roses aka Lisianthuses. Those phalaenopsis completed the look.
Such a classy backdrop. A gold gate which still allows us to see the serene Paoay lake.
Our ghost chairs had pearls and Star Apple aka caimito leaves for accent.

Congratulations Lutece and Michael!

Havaianas Luau:: MYOH 2015

Your summer is just not complete without dropping by at the biggest Luau hitting Sunshine City and grabbing a pair of Havaianas commemorative slippers. Believe me with a capital B! The slipper is just too cute and perfect... I'm kinda crossing my fingers we get to use it in Haweewee shores soon. Paging Hawaiian gods! Teehee!



I didn't mind finishing up at 2AM because I was looking forward to designing my own pair and I had a Lulu DK tattoo as a bonus!
Love how the pineapples, leis, fringe grass, beach props all come together. When unnecessary becomes necessary. Dear mister, breathe that... Whenever my hoarder alter ego takes over.

Oh my! So there you go MAHALO Havaianas!
