February turned out to be a busy, busy month for the BridalBook Team--what with the usual writing assignments coupled with events and photo shoots (and our 365th Featured Wedding), we had a schedule that was bursting at the seams. That isn't to say that we didn't have fun, though. We had a super month--and the pictures below prove it!
One of the month's highlights was Kaye Cunanan's annual thanksgiving dinner for K. by Cunanan Catering. The post-Valentine's Day event featured yummy food (of course!) and great music. The dinner brought back memories of BridalBook's first anniversary event at La Mesa Ecopark, since we feasted on K. by Cunanan's sumptuous fare while we listened to Johnoy Danao sing live.

One of the reasons we love going to events is that we get to meet suppliers who make the wedding industry a colorful one. Iko and I flank the Jason Magbanua. Tina should've been in the photo, but she was so flustered (she's a huge JMag fan) that she ended up taking the picture.
Kaye also invited clients she worked with in the past year--and among her clients were our featured couple, Abner and Jenifel
! Jenifel is also a regular contributor for BridalBook. We couldn't resist posing for a photo with the lovely couple. (Left to right: Abner, Jenifel, Iko, me, Jamie, Chris, and Keisha) *Photo from Jenifel Baliday
Another one of our featured couples, Rachelle and Paolo
, was also at the party. Rachelle had modeled for BridalBook back when she was still planning her wedding. (Left to right: Jamie, Chris, Keisha, Rachelle, and Paolo)
The day after the K. by Cunanan dinner, Iko, Keisha, and I went to the Kanebo Philippines launch, where they introduced new products from their Lunasol and Impress lines.
We found the decor at the event very chic--it reminded us of K. by Cunanan Catering's aesthetics. It turned out that our hunch was right: K. by Cunanan catered the brunch for Kanebo! How lucky we were, feasting on such good food for two straight days! *Photo from Kanebo Philippines

Kanebo introduced their spring offerings for Lunasol and Impress. We were particularly (um, for lack of a better word) impressed with Impress' skincare line. We learned so many new things from Kanebo's chief trainer, Ms. Jenny Liang--and we'll soon share with you what we learned. Watch out for our upcoming article on skincare! *Photo from Kanebo Philippines
Iko, Keisha, and I got to try the new products from Kanebo. *Photo from Kanebo Philippines
We couldn't pass up the chance to try out the makeup in pretty colors from Lunasol's Spring 2012 line. Here, Iko gets dolled up by Suzanne Tan (who also works for Suesh). *Photo from Kanebo Philippines
February also proved that we could very well mix business with pleasure. We had shoots that entailed extra effort, but we had a great time with them. We're keeping most of the photos under wraps (you'll see them in our features soon), but I'm sure it wouldn't hurt if I shared our fave photo from our last shoot.
When the going gets tough, the tough go posing! Jamie, Keisha, and I looking fierce for the camera. *Photo by Shaira Luna
Our schedule for March is also going to be packed, but we're not complaining--if we'll have as much fun as we did in February, I think we'll be okay.
