Royal Wedding: Kris Matanguihan

KING + NICA | SDE from Kris Matanguihan on Vimeo.

We learned about Kris through  friends who tied the knot a few months ahead of us. He’s the genius behind the Mcdonald’s Alabang wedding video featured in Mel and Joey last year.

After checking his portfolio, I found his works heart-warming, captivating, and worth every penny.

Kudos Kris for a job well done! :)


Royal Wedding: Litratistas

Photos? Priceless!

Black & white (chess) color enlivened by accents of yellow - I truly loved our colors! Black is something off-beat; Yellow makes me go crazy! I like that it turned out edgy as planned, balanced with Victorian Era’s charm. Really memorable.

About Litratista: Litratista is a group of photographers based in General Santos. Our awesome photographers: James Montano and Michael Chan. Interested in hiring them?  Please call (+63 915) 9249457 or (+63 922) 2726461.

Royal Wedding: Make-up by Gold

From a pale, a little reddish-faced princess (it was a bit hot that day) to a radiant yellow-carpet-worthy looking Queen, two thumbs up for Gold Sergio-Magtoto for making me truly stunning!

I had several make-up artists in mind when King thought of Gold. She is a friend from Victory Pioneer where King and I met. He texted Gold, and Gold gladly gave us a special package! What a darling!

Gold did well in using neutrals to open up my eyes. I totally love the falsies! She let me choose from three different falsies, but we both loved the thick, long one. I actually love the drama a simple addition brings!

Lipstick=Indispensable! Maybe because my lips are really pale. By the way, have you ever wondered how to make the color stay? Simple, Gold made use of Lip Liner as base! Fool-proof, smart and awesome. She then coated it with a lipstick of the same color.

Some tips from Gold:

  • Start a beauty regimen at least a month before the wedding.
  • No need, as in NO NEED, to get your eyelashes extended.
  • Get your nails done the day before your wedding. This will avoid polish chip offs.
  • Get pampered on the day before your wedding. Get a spa maybe. :)
  • Shower five hours before the actual event. An hour before preps.
  • Use lotion, matching your preferred perfume. It will help make the scent stay.
  • Go for Airbrush (make-up)!
  • To avoid lipstick getting on your teeth, (after putting lipstick) put the index finger in between your lips (middle part) and slowly pull your finger out.
