I’m sorry for the late post. I’ve been swamped with a lot of work and it’s a bit hard to keep up. Anyways, here’s a post about how I spent my Valentine’s Day! 🙂
By this time, people have been prodding me on who my date is and if I have a boyfriend. (The million dollar question!) Well, the answer is yes and no. Yes I have a date on Valentine’s Day and No I don’t have a boyfriend yet. Surprise! I have a date with a wedding gig on Valentine’s Day.. How romantic is that? My pals and I were asked to play for our friend on her big day. Of course, I never back out from gigs like these so I said yes, and so did my church mates.
Since the event would be held in a swanky hotel with a garden wedding theme, I’d have to dress up really well fit to the occasion. It is time to bring on the frills and florals! Instead of the usual cliche pink or red garb fit for Valentine’s Day, my pals and I decided to go with purple. Here’s my outfit of choice:
Dress: Ilaya Couture, Headband:Broadway Gems, Earrings:SEPA, Clutch:Gucci, Bracelet:CLN,Wedges:Jippi Jappa
I used to shun away from makeup. But now I’m learning to like it and I love how it could make you look different in a good way! Since it’s Valentine’s Day… I went for pink and purple hues on my eyes and lips. What do you think?
Looking so apt for the occasion, my dress has flowers in the chest area formed into a big heart! The fashion cupid must have hit me! LOL! I wanted to look simple but elegant, letting all the focus go to the dress. So,I chose to wear floral wedges, my trusty sparkly headband, earrings, and a glam clutch and I’m good to go!
It’s a date-worthy attire, don’t you think? 😉
Now, enough of my look and on to the main event! Here are some pictures taken from my camera and my friend’s phone cam:
Don’t you love the romantic aura?
My church mate made these “Valentine’s Day” inspired Carrot Cupcakes for us, the “performers”. We definitely needed that “Sugar Rush” for the event! Thanks for these yummy treats! I’d be expecting another batch when we are asked to play for another gig! 😉
These guys have been my partners in crime in gigs like these… The transitions and arrangements wouldn’t be as epic without you! (Cheeseball moment!)
My “fashionista” pal chose to wear a romantic-gothic inspired purple laced dress. She gives vintage glamour a new meaning, don’t you think? 😉
She had her pretty digits done with nail art in Hollywood Nails, J Centre. It perfectly matches her whole outfit… perfect for Valentine’s Day indeed!
I was too busy to have my nails done. So, I painted my toenails with this “Party-Ready” Lilac color. These floral wedges would have to give it justice! LOL!
The pretty lady in between us was our official wedding singer. Don’t be fooled by her slight structure. Her voice can summon angels from Heaven! Pardon the exaggeration, but it’s the truth! Without her, our arrangements wouldn’t be awesome as well! Thank you for putting up with our antics! 😉
Had a photo op with the officiating minister who’s a bundle of laughs all throughout the event!
The lovely bride
The bride’s sister who’s going to be next down the aisle? Hehe…. Perhaps! 😉
My friend does have an eye of a photographer, don’t you think?
Favorite part of every wedding
It was an intimate but romantic wedding and I was really glad to be part of the couple’s happiest moment of their lives. It was a great Valentine’s Date indeed and I couldn’t ask for a more romantic date than that! We were exhausted but we had tons of fun, I believe my church mates would agree!
Since this is the month of love, I’d like to leave out words of wisdom for you guys! Don’t fret when you didn’t receive any flowers, chocolates, or gifts. Valentine’s Day is just a holiday. It doesn’t mean that you can’t show love or receive love on other days, right? So start spreading some love to the people around you…No need for mushy notes or expensive gifts! Just simply be there for your loved ones in need and offer a prayer for them! That’s probably going to be a more valuable gift that you could give than anything else!
A Happy Hearts Day to all and my warmest Congratulations to the newly-wed couple! Cheers to more blessings in this road called life! 😉
Till’ future gigs and awesome music to come!
