Love at First Sail

As promised, here comes Part 2 of the featured wedding celebration.
Get ready to Set Sail with Captain Jason and his First Mate Christine.

As we entered the ship, we were welcomed by this nautical set.

It was truly a night to remember.

From that first dance as a couple

To Endless kisses

And to Rekindled Friendship

These two are definitely going to have a long yet beautiful journey.
And yes, they have perfected the art of smiling.

For those who might be too shy to ask who did her gown,
I had a quick chat with the bride herself.
Christine is wearing a creation by Cecilio Abad.

And speaking of fashion, if you've read my previous post, 
you would have noticed that I did an outfit change.

For the Reception, I wanted to sport a look that is 
both earthy and elegant to embody a romantic vibe.

Instead of going for something lavish and intricate, 
this time I went for an ensemble that is simple and understated,
the kind that will make you look fabulous, even without trying.

Pastel and Nude colors will always be one of my top choices because it 
highlights my silhouette as well as brings out my skin's natural glow.
Finish the look with gold accents and a nude pair of heels :)

More photos before I call it a night.

Te Amo

Only time can tell when we will find the right person to spend the rest of our lives with,
and when we do, we ought to marry for the right reason; 
Not out of wealth nor stature, but simply because of love.

I'm glad to have witnessed a beautiful wedding ceremony last 21st of May.
One of my childhood friends tied the knot with the man of her dreams.

Being the stylist in me, I'd like to share with you my choice of clothing during
the matrimony of Jason and Christine. 
More photos of the ceremony at the latter part of the post :)

The look I went for was sleek and minimal.

As they say, less is more. 
I went for a simple yet streamlined attire for a church appropriate ensemble.

I wore basic shades of gray and black for a feminine silhouette.

The details I focused on were mainly 
immaculate tailoring and a great fabric like so.
 I believe that these are key to being all glammed up.
What do you think about the look I created?

Remember to always put a big smile on your face
just like Auntie Cynthia, the beautiful mom of the bride.

Christine aka C.AW has always been admired by many.
She is not only class valedictorian but an overachiever in many fields.

Being a loving and obedient daughter that she is, 
it is of great joy to her parents to see her walk down the aisle. 
Not to mention, a little bit of separation anxiety for their unica hija.

Her grandma was crying as she accompanied Christine on her special day.
So much feels for this photo.

And of course her beautiful bestfriend Aileen was all smiles.
Pretty soon, I believe she will follow the footsteps of her BFF :)

Here are Rana and Pauline imparting some beautiful Scriptures.

If there's one thing I have never seen C.AW do in our years of friendship,
it's to get angry. Her smile and laughter have always been her best asset.
I'm sure that's one of the many reasons why Jason fell for her.

A cute candid photo of the couple with some friends.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs. Lim.
Can't wait to meet your little juniors in God's perfect timing.
May you stay in love, always.

Part 2 of the ceremony up next in my blog :)

Swimming with Cafe Aquatica

There's a new restaurant café in town that you ought to visit.

Right in the heart of Greenhills is a concept café called Café Aquatica ,
where you get to chill and dine with an aquarium full of 
beautiful and colorful Betta , aka Fighting Fish.

The man behind this unique experience is Mr. Kenbert Chua, CEO of Café Aquatica.
A big Congratulations to you and your family.

What started as a passionate hobby became a promising business opportunity.

Open from Mondays to Fridays (11 am - 10 pm ) and
Saturdays to Sundays (10 am - 10 pm )

Café Aquatica is certainly a good place for family & friends to bond, 
for kids to have fun in finding Nemo, 
and perhaps for everyone passionate enough 
to explore another new found hobby.

Mi Amore

A few days ago, we gave mom the 'royal treatment' she deserves. 
Aside from giving her some presents for Mother's Day,
our family took her out for dinner. 

Being the stylist in me, a special occasion like so 
made me want to look all glammed up.
If you've been following my blog, 
 Apartment 8 would always be one of my favorite go-to ensembles. 

Their fashion pieces are classy yet timeless; 
Chic yet feminine. Simply fashion forward for the modern you.
Take for instance this Apartment 8 Wrap Dress which allows you
to create endless styles ---brilliant in every way!

Creating my own version of a demi-goddess look, 
 I styled the front of my dress with 
off-the-shoulder Ruched Straps, and a ribbon at the back. 

That's just one of many ways I can style this maxi.
Perhaps, I'll save my other creations for another post.

Someday I do hope to get a chance to collaborate 
with this brand (together with my twin of course).
Super love their dresses --- a style haven for every fashionista!

Just to give you some snippets about the celebration,
we had dinner at
BLACKBIRD at The Nielson Tower
Ayala Triangle Gardens, Salcedo Village Makati City

We ordered around six dishes but I'll only share two as you've definitely
have to try out this place. Food and Ambiance is just perfect!

Lasagna ala Blackbird

Pizza Ala BlackBird 

| Italian Sausage, Fennel, Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Chili |

Thanks Mom for all the love. I might not be good in expressing it,
but you definitely mean the world to me.

And of course, always thankful for the love of Family :)
