I was happy when I found out that Jon and Maria (Tere) are finally tying the knot :-) Happier when Jon told me I am going to make the wedding gown. I was honored :-)
When I met Maria, she struck me as someone who would go for an all embellished gown, probably lace and beading galore. I was wrong. She wanted none of those :-) She gave me a picture of the gown she wants - draping, no embroidery, no beading. Di ko na pala kailangan mag-design! :-) okay fine, modista na talaga ito! hahaha! She chose a beautiful gown and all I need to do is come up with a nice fabric, fit her perfectly and add a bit of oomph that I hope she'll like.
She has a great body and reaaaalllly beautiful skin, ang kinis! (uhmm, kinikilig ka jon!) It wasn't difficult at all to make her pretty, because she already is. I just revised the strap to compliment her nice shoulder, added some details on the gown and I'm done :-)
I was extra happy when she approved of the embroidered veil. I felt it completed her look. Maria happy, me happy. I believe she can be feisty when she doesn't like something heheheh :-) taray ang lola mo promise! - straightforward, no frills, non compromising. I like it actually. It didn't leave me guessing :-D
But what caught me by surprise are the boys! This is probably the only time I will talk about men, otherwise, my blog would be titled Veluz Bride and Groom? Veluz Bridal Party? eeew :-/ But its Threelogy! and they're not one to be outshined. They won't allow it.
I was excited making their suits. But they were more excited than me! hahaha!
From the measurement taking to the final fitting, it was endless kulitan. I've never fitted grooms that went out of the fitting room just to parade their suits. Moreso, best men! Bong and CJ were just unstoppable! They smoked, they chat, had photo sessions with threads and pins! Worse than any bride I've worked with. We even had longer fittings than any of the girls, including Maria :-) But I must admit, they really looked fine :-)
Come wedding day, Maria was her usual self - bubbly and kikay. Flirting with the camera and having the time of her life.
I was surprised when she was walking down the aisle. The minute they opened the door, she was a bride :-) There is really something about church doors that makes a bride all giddy. And she was no different. She walked slowly, smiling demurely and was just so beautiful. I guess everyone felt her happiness, they all applauded.
And Jon?! It felt kinda weird seeing him at the altar, but yes, he looked every bit a groom :-)
Bong and CJ? - bestest men ever.
Congratulations Jon and Maria!
