...weddings

today i'm going to talk about weddings... mine and.. my sister's! yup, Ate Chary has met her match and will tie the knot! They (as in she and JR, her fiancé) were at first decided on a February 2010 wedding, but because of my awesome convincing powers, they moved it to December 2009!woohoo! December weddings are harder to pull off because it's the wedding month of all months.. Most churches in the city are already booked so the solution is to go to our hometown, Antipolo! I've pencil booked 'The Mango Farm' and inquired on a prospective parish church inside Filinvest. (i actually pencil booked the Mango Farm before I tried to convince Ate Chary to do a December wedding.. I needed to know if it was feasible, of course!) I've also contacted a few wedding suppliers and found an excellent photographer who is available on the date and has a reasonable rate.. Jason Arquiza of RedefineWeddings. if JR approves, will book him ASAP! hehe.

Ate's still not sure about the colors.. though she is leaning towards a pink/brown wedding (i love pink and brown too! my favorite w@wie weddings were these colors!) but i have found so much interesting color combinations in the net, everything looks beautiful!

here are a few of my favorites:

tiffany blue and poppy (or aqua blue/red for guys hehe)
mood boardsmood boards

turquoise, pink and gold

and of course, the pink and brown

i'm so excited! i love weddings!

and speaking of weddings, i have finally finished our wedding album.. its 3 years late so i'm really happy to have overcome my laziness and actually sat down in front of a computer and devoted time to do it. (advise to B2Bs.. have your photographer do the wedding album! cause it'll end up like ours.. 3 years in the making!) its nothing fancy, i completed it in under a week. i wanted it to be simple and classic, something that ten years from now, i would still like. I got the brushes from DeviantArt (awesome site!) and some scrapbook elements from ShabbyPrincess.

i'm just really glad to have accomplished something while i'm here sa Pinas.. our aging PC was really straining and crawling under Photoshop Elements, but it survived and i'm excited to see it get printed.

here's our 2006 Wedding:

Wow! Good for you and you finally did it! :)

I was planning to put up a wedding album as well for our families.

We don't have our own wedding album yet kasi di pa kami nakakapili ng mga photos to be submitted to our supplier...hehehe.
