Celine Kim

It was a long long year but it finally ended. It still feels like yesterday when I started helping Celine's wedding plan. I feel relieved but at the same time I feel empty..... It's like now what?

All the bride's side party met up at her place and drove to Cooney for Hair(441 Queen ST W, Toronto; above lettuis restaurant) to do our hair. As soon as we enter there 3 quarters of people working there were Japanese! I don't think I've seen this many Japanese at a hair salon. My hair dresser had bad English so I asked her if she speaks Japanese so we started speaking that. It was easier to explain in Japanese with Japanese recommendation. She did a really good job with my hair and fast~ I had conversation with her about the salon and I'm considering getting my hair cut and perm done here~ Celine's hair was PERFECT for her dress. They given her the 40's bob hairstyle. After that Celine's photographer Gabe brought us a large tray of sandwiches for lunch! It was so yummy~!!

Then we drove down to Bloor where Holt Renfrew was to get our make-up done. Celine got Bobbi Brown make-up artist to do our face. The artists were very considerate, I told them I have sensitive skin, I have no tolerance with fragrance in the make-up and less make-up on me. The one I hate the most is foundations, I get itchy easily but the artist recommended to use tinted moisturizer. Basically it's a moisturizer with a bit of skin color inside it and it makes a difference. It gives a natural finish. And most of all, they don't FORCE you put MORE make up just because it's your special day etc etc.
While they were putting my make-up guess who I saw? Mrs. Chelin!!!!!! It was SO great to see her~!! She looked EXACTLY the same!!! Too bad she was in a rush so I didn't get the chance to talk to her~ She was with Mrs. Phlipson too, and she still looks the same! It's so cute how they're still best friend after so many years~

So the make-up took a while because they were short on staff, we arrive to the wedding place at 2pm when guests arrived.
That's when I saw the view of the place~ Me and the other bridesmaid Nav got excited when we saw the balloons through the window while Celine was hurrying us to get dressed.
It was my first time seeing this place and man it's HUGE~!!

The bridesmaids were dressed then we all helped out Celine dressed (As some people already know Celine and I made the bride's and bridesmaids dress). The dress was made so that the dress will put over her head, the reason to that is her skirt starts right under her breasts with nice flowly chiffon around her skirt. If the back of the dress's zipper was too long, it'll lose the flowlyness of the chiffon.
So we got Nav, our secondary photographer Layla to cover Celine's head away from the dress so it won't mess-up her hair. The dress slipped into her smoothly then we fixed up her hair that was fraying already. We got our heels on, grabbed our bouquets and off to the ceremony!

As soon as the ceremony starts that's when I remembered I was suppose to give Charles my camera to take pictures of the ceremony.... so now I have no photos of the ceremony -_- Well I was planning to get copy of the wedding photos from Gabe.
When it was my turn to walk down the aisle, I had trouble walking slowly with my heals. I never realized how your leg get wobbly from walking so slow.... Before I was nervous and now I was focusing NOT to lose balance and make fool of myself....
The cutest thing was when the flower girls were throwing petals. They took one step at a time, VERY SLOWLY and throw only like 2 or 3 petals on the ground. Actually the second flower girl was just following the first right behind her like they were suppose to be in line without throwing any petals.
Then the bride appeared with her dad. During the whole officiant's speeches I think I held my tears like 4 times, I had tissue in my hand but that got soaked from extra water from the bouquet.
At the end of the ceremony the guests get to toss rices at the couple and it was the funniest thing to watch. People were hesitant on how gently they should toss it. Celine looked good with rices in her hair but Jin looked messy with it ;)

After the whole ceremony, the wedding party went to a park in Oakville and took pictures. I remember driving down there when I was at Sheridan but I didn't see park or cute little houses around there. I really didn't pay attention... -_- We had lots of fun looking photos so I can't wait to see the result!
Before we got to the park, I was driving Nav(passenger seat), Celine and Jin sitting in the back. The two fell asleep with with their hand held together, it was so adorable~!! Nav took picture of that so I need to get a copy from her!

Then we got back and from here everyone knows what happened, we just had dinner, a little game, dancing, and then called it a night.
We gave out jams for wedding favors, it's one of the good kind =)

Well now that wedding dress project is over, we now have to decide what project to do next~ Maybe mittens that Celine wanted to make =)
