Here is a nice quote on friendship : "Nothing compares to the stomach ache you get from laughing with your best friends..."
Before I got married, my best girlfriends planned my very own bridal shower. It was very intimate, fun and full of laughter! I felt loved.
It was 2 years ago, yet I can't seem to forget it and when I was asked to photograph a tea party inspired bridal shower for Patti Grandidge, I was so excited to be part of it.
pH Care Sexy Fresh, in cooperation with Bridal Book, connived with Patti's Mom and girlfriends for a surprise Bridal Shower! To everyone's delight, Patti was so happy when she saw all of them in one place! All of her bridesmaids were present, her friends in the industry, Jon's mom and siblings too! Can I just say that she looked radiant in a purple gown made by John Herrera (yes- just a letter short of her fiance's name ,now husband, Jon Herrera)?
You really can't tell that she is busy juggling hosting, baking & managing her Sweet Patti Cakes business, and planning a destination wedding all at once , must be that bride-to-be glow!
Held at Da.u.de Tea lounge in Taguig, the place was spruced up with beautiful purple (Patti's favorite color) and green.
Patti's bestfriends, together with PH Care and Bridal Book, prepped the place earlier and prepared a few games to spice up the shower. Everyone went home with their Ph Care Sexy Fresh goodiebags and a cupcake in a specially made box- (The cupcakes of course are from Sweet Patti Cakes). Most of all, I enjoyed the paper towel bride game! And....Of course, no shower would be complete without the opening of the gifts!
Let me just say for the record that I was and still starstrucked when I finally saw Patti for the first time?!
Not only was she so pretty but she was so nice! She had a pleasing personality and calm aura that was very infectious.
You could really tell that Patti is loved. The mere presence of Patti's closest friends prove that they are there to support before she enters one of the biggest milestones in her life - marriage.
Nothing beats the feeling of being surrounded by your friends! They say your girlfriends are just like your clothes, you feel naked without them! Im glad that Patti has found this special bond in her mom, mother-in-law, sisters-in-law and her best friends. It was a fun afternoon, something worth remembering!
Best wishes Patti! I'm not much of a writer, but if you are reading this now, i pray for a good marriage.
I pray for a love to last a lifetime; a love that surpasses any trials that will come to you and Jon.
Nobody said that married life is always bliss, and i know how you put God in your relationship,
(Im a follower of your IG, he he he), you have always been vocal about it.
Just trust in Him. Always. Nothing is impossible.
Welcome to the happy wives club, Patti! You looked gorgeous on your wedding!!!!!
it was a pleasure to be part of your special day!
