It’s every little girl’s fancy to make her dream wedding come true. Like beautiful and statuesque model Sarah Meier-Albano, she also hoped for a fun and memorable one and is about to realize it as she plans for a beach wedding this March.
But before she goes down to the nitty-gritty process of planning her big day, Metro Weddings and godmother Christina N. Lopez treated her to a boho-chic themed bridal shower at the poolside of Edsa Shangri-la Manila last February 21.
The bridal shower was an intimate gathering of family, friends and members of the entourage. Metro Weddings editor-in-chief Michelle Alejandro-Katigbak played host and game master for the night for some fun games like ‘How well do you know the bride’, ‘Purse Scavenger Hunt’, ‘Una Rosa’s Make a Wedding Dress’, ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’ and the proverbial ‘Pass the Bouquet’ with a playful twist.
The boho-chic venue was created by events stylist Henry Pascual, which reflected very much of the bride’s persona while a three-layered cake and mini cakes served for the guests was crafted by cake artist Judy Uson. Friends shared their thoughts and best wishes to the beautiful bride at the ‘Wishing Counter and Wishing Tree’.
The guests enjoyed the Bollywood-inspired afternoon cocktails with lavish wines and champagnes. Close friends and well-wishers each went home with Aranaz tote bags.
The band, Out of Body Special, who are also Sarah’s friends serenaded the guests with its upbeat collection of music.
One of the most successful and celebrated women in the modeling industry, Sarah has become a staple in gracing prominent commercials, magazines and billboards in the country. Wedded to Benjo Albano in an intimate civil ceremony three years ago, the couple was gifted with a beautiful daughter named Kaya.
