Wedding Essentials Beautiful Weddings 2010

I started collecting WE magazines 3 years ago and my most favorite is their Beautiful Weddings Edition because it makes me feel that having a dream wedding is just within reach. I told Bryan, who was then my boyfriend, "You know what hon, our wedding will be featured here (looking at the mag) someday." So it's evidence-based! The law of attraction really works (big grin). And true enough, our ever reliable wedding coordinator, Voltaire Zalamea sent me a link to the Beautiful Wedding's contest. It was their first time to open it on public and let them vote. My husband and I got in the first week which was also the week of our National Elections. I campaigned on Facebook, while my sister and cousin had "Bantay Boto". Bryan, even if he's not here would text me and asked "Honey, kumusta? Lead ba tayo?" haha..The contest was like a roller coaster ride. May I just quote the jargoned "We Heart Attack". To be honest, at first, I was just aiming to win because I want to be featured in a sophisticated magazine. Who doesn't? But at the end, I realized that the essence of the contest is to give inspirations to others. To make known that love indeed is the most powerful virtue and everyone should feel and experience it. Thank you WE for the once in a lifetime opportunity.

And here's what happened tonight.

Wedding Essential's editor-in-chief, Marbee Go and the master of romantic ceremonies (and Royal thru orange kid), RJ Ledesma

I finally met one of the brides, who's now a friend and soon to be hot mom (see the baby bump?), Ate Cha :)) Here's what you will see on the  news stands. Our personalized cover is only complimentary but we could order more.
