I am so used to brides with curly smiles, blushing, fidgeting, giggling and shrieking with excitement. ;-)
Steph is different. She's obviously in love coz she's getting married but she's just not the usual type. She's like a kid with her best buddy, planning an adventure. :-) She's cool, no nonsense and definitely not mushy. Won't be gushing on the prom night, but will wake up early and excited for a tennis match. She's just not the usual bride.
She gave me a picture of her ideal gown on our first meeting and just bluntly told me that that is what she wants.
"bahala ka na.. basta parang ganyan.."
I love the design, I know I can make it better.
But it was actually more than making the gown.
I want her to be my bride.
She's just different. Pleasantly different :-)
I was extremely pleased when we had our last and final fitting, when finally I've perfected the fit and got the look that I was aiming for. She transformed right before my eyes. She's a bride!! I was soooo excited and asked her if she is, she just shrugged her shoulders, gave me a wide grin, and said - "kakatawa ka, mas excited ka pa yata sa akin eh hehehe :-)" Told her - "bakit ba eh excited ako eh! ang ganda ganda mo!"
I want to see her walk down the aisle!! I want to see her before the door opens! :-D
Will she be as cool as usual? Will she cry?Well she didn't cry. She was smiling all the time. She was relax, cool and just happy. :-)
But guess what she told me a day later, with tounge in cheek - "ei totoo nga yung power of the door, I felt it e! nung nag-open yung door... oo nga .... kala ko iiyak ako eh pero ... ang saya... ang saya talaga... thank you ha...galing galing"
I felt my face light up, I was so happy coz I actually thought my eyes fooled me the day before, because I saw her gush when the door opened, she was smiling awkwardly, just like a girl in love.
uuuuuuy kinikilig?!?!!!!!! hahaha! :-)
Beautiful pictures by Mimi and Karl, as usual ;-)
