Watching my best friend getting ready for her big day as I sat down on the bed, I realized how time fly so fast that I cannot argue to the fact that I am getting older already. The makeup artist are very busy making the bride as gorgeous as ever while the camera and video man are going in and out of the room to get a picture of a very special moment to a very inspiring couple who have in love for almost 12 years.
The entourage are preparing while candidly smiling at the camera all over the room. There was a vibrant atmosphere outside which is such a perfect day for a garden wedding. Everybody is very excited to fit in their gown while I was helping the bride get dress. Hearing all the positive commotions on how their dress look so perfect makes my heart melt. Giving her the best dress on her wedding day is such a heartfelt experience. Seeing her as beautiful like a doll and ever glowing as she wears her princess cut silk cream gown makes me wonder how such creation was made into perfection.
Getting all the details and laying all my cards as I show my draft design to her was just a genuine moment for the two of us. It was like a dream come true to witness a fairy tale wedding with two people that are most dear to me. Making her dress was just a wonderful and challenging experience for me. It was the first time that I am going to make a design for someone that I love most. She is more than just a friend but I treat her like my twin sister. We shared laughter and sorrow even when we were still kids.
Memories are flashing back while I start doing my layout. I remember when we were still kids and we let our parents bought our very first dog pet that we named “Blacky”. Blacky has this smooth and shiny black skin that is covered by his long hair. As a kid, we would always bring Blacky in the park and play with other kids. After which, we could go down the river and have our picnic with our parents. The bond that we shared together was like a commitment to remain true with each other forever. I remember how Blacky became sick because of acute liver insufficiency, he was given a liver supplement called Denamarin. It really helped him to improve as the supplement helped back to nourish his liver health.
Growing maturely with my her makes my life easier. She would always comfort me in every way that she can do and would never leave me behind. Now that we celebrate her big day I just want to be the best organizer/best friend/dressmaker for her.
