Models for a Day: Our Prenup Pictorial


If I were to summarize the whole experience of going through a prenuptial pictorial, I would say it was exhausting, uncomfortable, and hands down the best fun we’ve had in years and years.

Here are the fruits of our labor, against the backdrop of Makati Park and Garden’s most picturesque spots:

Thank you to the following people who made it all possible:

  • Art – For being a sweetie even when stress made me the shrew of shrews.  Thanks for staying calm when I feel like there’s a thunderstorm in my heart.  Ang handsome ng groom ko… and it shows in the photos!  Of course, it’s real love that makes these pictures jump out, right?
  • Photographers Richard Mojica and Jowell Mariano – Praise God that our free prenup pictorial GC from attending the Before I Do Workshop was able to secure for us the services of two incredibly talented and super nice photographers from Imagine Nation Photography!  These guys were soo patient with us, and had a real eye for beauty and detail.  They really went way beyond expectations.
  • Bridesmaids Rae Venturanza and Alex Lapa – Tell me, how blessed am I to be related to these two?  What are the odds of a bride having both a make-up artist and a stylist in the family?  Slim to none, so thank God!  My two wonderful cousins helped me shop, dressed me, primped me, and even fed and drove me (love you, Raissa!) so that all I had to do was to sit still and be a glamourpuss for the camera.  I am forever in their debt.
  • Best Man Arnold Fronda and Groomsman Alvin Fronda – Three-day sales at SM are crazy, and so are a bride and groom in total stress over a wedding preparations.  Thank God Arn and Vin were up to the task of running all over the department store to get sizes and waiting as Art and I fitted stuff!  We were able to get cool outfits for Art without incident.  And Arn went an extra mile to assist Art during the shoot… truly our best man.  :)

In other news:

  • Finally met Mae this month for the gown design!  We’re turning Mommy’s vintage gown into a modern satin and lace confection.  Watch out for it!



Finally! The pamamanhikan pictures are up! Since this took place last November 14, this is waay overdue.

Although I was tired from cleaning all day and doing some cooking, the day was an overall success. Looks like our families are off to a good start… and we had enough bananas and kakanin to last us until 2010 courtesy of Art’s family.
