Melai and Jason

Probably one of the most fun and funniest weddings I’ve ever attended. We were practically laughing from preps to reception. I am blessed to be part of Melai and Jason’s journey from their Big Brother days to another chapter in their lives.

Gel and Joel

Why do I love weddings? Easy, because it’s easy.

Love is in the air and you feel it the minute they smile at you when they open the door to the prep room. The brides are giddy (even the ones doing last minute vows). Grooms are sometimes prancing around. Family members are anxiously waiting for the bride.

And I get to say, “ok relax.. chin up.. walk slowly.. and smile,” before the doors open and she walks down the aisle.

That’s why most of the time, I need waterproof makeup more than the bride.

Here’s the beautiful couple and their beautiful day….

The Bride Who Wore Chucks On Her Day

Spraining her ankle two weeks before the wedding, the untimely blackout during our makeup test and other mishaps led Tin to entertain typical wedding superstitious beliefs. She’d often joke about blaming it on fitting her gown. But despite all the unexpected mishaps, she still managed to have her picture-perfect wedding. Not to mention the awesome customized beaded sneakers as a bonus on her big day.

Mackie and Joanne

When it’s your good friend who’s getting married, you hold your breath harder, and you dread the walk in the aisle because you already know you’re going to cry or be captured in the videos sniffing all the tears in. But if your friend is marrying someone like Mackie, it’s a whole different experience *wink wink*. Love you both!
