Trial Hair and Make Up

I scheduled a trial hair and make up session with Angie Cruz last Oct 30 since it's also the day of our engagement session with Smartshots.

Angie and his hair stylist, Ogie, were supposed to go to the venue but since there's no appropriate ventilation in our chosen place they requested me to drop by at the Shu Uemura Studio in Rockwell. As usual, when I got there I look so stressed and haggard, gosh I just can't imagine on the actual day of the wedding I'm sure I'll look like a zombie since I can't sleep when I'm excited. But then again, Angie and Ogie's magic works for me that day and I instantly look fresh.

Here are some of the photos:

Here's a photo taken 6 hours after... no re-touch, I just blot my head and cheeks to remove the shiny spots.

I love the make-up even if I did not opt for airbrush. I think I will stick to the traditional since the re-touch before the reception is included in the package, a second look will most likely be done. Thanks Angie and Ogie for making me fab for the shoot! Excited to be a radiant bride on Dec 17th!

Sharing: Monogram and Save The Date

The countdown says: 65 days to go.

As our big day gets nearer, we were able to finish some of the gazillion stuff for the wedding. I am posting 2 of the designs we were able to complete.

Here's the monogram created by my h2b. It took us several concepts, arguments and survey before I finally OK'd this design. I find it very elegant, the touch of our motif and the fonts used are just perfect.
When I realized that the invitation is to be sent later than what I scheduled, I just need to prepare an STD. I had seen this concept from one of the wedding blog I browsed before, actually I have tons and tons of inspiration. I changed the content, colors, some of the approach and viola! Here's the cutie monogram I created overnight ^_^

As they say, never underestimate the power of classic. Modern, bold and graphic, the drama is in the bold mix of the masculine and feminine monochrome.
