Karen was referred to me by Mimi and Karl and I couldn't thank them enough.
Aside from working with the industry's best - them, Ernest, Madge and Threelogy, Karen is such a delight to work with, mild-mannered, proper, no-fuss and just pleasant, not an ounce of bridezilla genes in her blood.
She lost 4 inches off her waist from the time we last fitted to two weeks before the wedding, but what's 4 inches among friends :-D
Nah, seriously, couldn't thank them enough, coz I had the chance to make this -

love love love the way Madge used the gown's trimmings as hair accents. Mental note - if with Madge, bring as much materials as possible, you wouldn't know what she'll come up with :-)

Karl is the groom's high school batchmate and college orgmate, so yes, they're pretty tight :-) And this slideshow is M+K's gift for them, one of my fave of all their works.

thank you veluz! you are truly one of the best and most talented (and not to mention one of the most coveted) bridal gown designers in the Philippines ( you are the "vera wang/monique lhuillier/elie saab" all rolled into one!) the gown was breathtaking and everyone who attended the wedding kept asking me who my designer was..they even thought it was a designer gown that i bought here in NYC :) i also want to thank your staff, who was there with me every step of the way on our wedding day. everyone was great, and i felt so pampered. more power to you and your team and again,maraming maraming salamat!
