A little secret...
Nadine writes: "Sassa (gown designer, Sassa Jimenez) and I actually have a secret. My gown, which may look white / off-white is actually peach underneath.
-- Being "rebellious" doesn't always have to be in-your-face. Sometimes, having your own "little secret" is enough to get you by :)
A rebellious entrance...
Nadine shares: "We entered Blue Leaf to the tune of “Enter Sandman” by Metallica! The best part was we were escorted by 6 of our bouncer friends! Stunned faces and guffaws welcomed us...and we just ROCKED it!"
-- Your couple's entrance can be the best way to announce to everyone that the ceremony is over so you are out to par-tay and let your hair down. Don't allow yourself to be dictated by "rules". During our June 4 wedding, my mom and her coordinator (yes she had her own coordinator), were trying to force me into having all these reception traditions that my husband and I were not comfortable with. In the end, I really refused to have the usual entrance as well.
Ito Ang Tama!
Instead of the usual wedding cocktails, Nadine opted for the most basic, in-your-face, drink, fit for a rockin' wedding---overflowing Red Horse Beer. 'Nuff Said.
"Tradition" dictates that weddings should have overflowing wine and champagne. But why? What is it for, really? What if you don't even like wine and champagne? Why pay for it? Why pretend that you drink it? I say, be yourself. Serve overflowing Kamikaze if that's what you want. =P
Tim Burton inspiration
Nadine also had one of the coolest pre-nup sessions I have seen so far. I have seen similar shoots but this one just has so much more depth.
