METRO Weddings: Cary Santiago & John Herrera

I attended the METRO Weddings event sponsored by Samsung last Monday. Due to the unbearable traffic  at around 6:45 pm exactly on Dela Rosa street Makati,  I really considered to just cancel and watch a movie with Mich instead. Mich changed her clothes inside the cab and I had to eat a quick dinner on the road too. But 5 minutes before 7pm we finally arrived at Marriott Hotel. The event hasn't started yet thank God--and it didn't start until 9pm. So I had enough time to freshen up and fix myself. I went with my girls Rech, Lia and Wei. They too were super late because of the traffic. Cocktails were served and I wanted to down 5 glasses of wine. Haha. BUT, of course I can't. Saw a lot of famous people but I was too shy--or I think too proud, haha--to take photos with them. Mich on the other hand disappeared often and reappears with different food in her hands and mouth. She enjoyed the food more than people watching. The only person she recognized there was Rachel Alejandro. So old school. The rest for her are blank faces. Haha. Anyway, the show was spectacular and the collection--amazing. :)

Here's how it all went in photos...

The crowd.

Free food! --ice cream... and some other things Mich kept on eating...

Love this shot!

The show was well executed as well as the designs of the gowns and dresses! I heard a lot of girls saying, "When I get married I want Cary and John to make my gown!". I guess that itself was proof that the event was a success. Congratulations Sir John! =)

P.S. I got featured online on the spanish magazine Vanidad! Read my feature HERE.
It's in spanish though. Hee. But if you're interested enough you could just translate my interview through google translation or something. Hehe. Yey.:)
