The Wedding - Part 2 (Bride Preps)

Last July 5, 2014, I married the love of my life. 
These are the written chronicles of that beautiful day.

Bride Getting Ready
* Down the hallway, in a much larger suite, my bride-to-be was getting ready for her big day.

Soon to be Mrs. Mancao
* For 29 years, there had only been one Mrs. Mancao, my mother. After today, there would be two of them!

Artsy Wedding Rings

* Because today was the perfect day to have ARTSYSHOT #1 featuring my fiancee's engagement ring, and soon to be, wedding ring. All shots taken by the phenomenal, Oly Ruiz.

Bridesmaid Goodies
* Being the thoughtful bride-to-be that she is, my fiancee prepared some goodies for all her bridesmaids and Ninangs.

Artsy Stilettos

*ARTSYSHOT #2 showcasing the unlikely combination of her stilettos and the room lamp! 

Wedding Ceremony Essentials

* ARTSYSHOT #3 this time highlighting all the wedding ceremony essentials!
Wonder Woman Bouquet
* Not to be outdone, my fiancee had a Wonder Woman LEGO figure on her bouquet that day!

Wedding Gown

* The wedding dress, made by the brilliant Francis Libiran, who coincidentally also made my fiancee's debut gown many years ago.

Wedding Invitations

* ARTSYSHOT #4 was our Greek-themed wedding invitation, which I absolutely loved.

Gift Delivery from Groom
* I wasn't the only one surprised that morning as I had also prepared a gift for my bride-to be, personally delivered by my college roommates VC and Ken, and closest friend from Cebu, Chad, those three among my oldest and dearest friends, now groomsmen.

Brand new Macbook Air

Artsy Gown Shot

Grandpa in the Locket

* One of the day's more emotional moments was when the fiancee discovered that in her wedding locket was a picture of her beloved grandfather, Ramon, who had passed away the previous year.
