REAL WEDDING: SHAM + HAZELLE
There's something about marrying one's best friend. By some grand design, you eventually live your entire life with someone with whom you've opened your heart to a lot of times, someone you've cried and laughed with (not necessarily in that order). We think that there's no better circumstance in the whole wide world than marrying someone you trust. American painter, Walter Anderson, puts it ever so succinctly,"We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone - but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy." The guy definitely nailed it on the head. :-)
Now, an aside. What makes this line of work of ours really sad is that we rarely get to stay and watch the entire event unfold (done that only once last year). That is why we trust that the official photographers will "relay" to us the proceedings as if we were there.
So, how cool is an all-yellow calla lily bouquet? It really added that burst of color into the whole affair. Loving the details, too: the Jaguar bridal car, the funky shoes from Pratt-educated fashion designer Betsey Johnson, the ring on the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectant (created by Arden in 1930, would you believe? It's so bloody effective she even used the apricot balm to soothe her horses' legs! So if it worked on the horses' legs... Oh, you get the drift!), the super fasyon dresses of the guests (I love the skirt that has cut-out patches featuring the painting of Damian Domingo! Where'd she get that, I wonder. And that huge brooch on her arm! Argh! Wait, I'm getting carried away, LOL!), and the tropical boutonnières with crystals that we made for the men. We also made sure that the rose petals used during the recessional came in the official colors, he he he! :-)
Kudos to Guj Tungpalan of Redsheep for capturing all the emotions during all the right moments. It makes one cry, too, seeing the Mom stifle a sob when she was giving away the bride. *sighs* But then this was immediately replaced with laughter as the wedding proceeded. All's well that ends well. :-)
Sham & Hazelle, thank you for making us a part of your awesome day! What a wonderful, cheery, sunny day! :-)
We also take this opportunity to thank Darlene Tan-Salazar of Perfect 10 Weddings. It was great working with your team again. :-)
