Beauty Queen Lara Quigaman Weds Actor Marco Alcaraz in a Blushing VeeJay Floresca Gown

ABQ Congratulates Miss International 2005 Lara Quigaman and her long-time love, the dashing actor Marco Alcaraz for a splendid wedding at Kuh Ledesma’s Hacienda Isabella yesterday (July 8, 2012) in Indang, Cavite!

Since everyone is buzzing about the wedding, I’m going to focus on one key highlight – Lara’s fluttery gown – an understated gem by VeeJay Floresca, one of the hottest young designers in the Philippines today.

The gown’s color, I discovered was “Blush” – very appropriate, brings to mind a picture of a crystal glass of Rose wine, a muted sunset or the blushing beauty of bride in love.

While Lara Quigaman eschewed beadwork, she went for Alencon Lace, an intricately crafted type of pricey lace, purchased in the US; the same kind used in Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier creations.

The front gap-type slit – unexpected in a wedding gown – gave me a glimpse of Lara Quigaman’s shapely legs and her quiet way of breaking tradition.

Most impressive was Veejay Floresca’s slimming magic – he made Lara look stunningly svelte even if she was 6 months pregnant with baby Noah!

During the wedding, Lara Quigaman and Marco Alcaraz admitted that they had already gotten quietly married the year before and that the Cavite wedding was the second one for them both, a “re-union” of sorts for the benefit of friends and family.

Congratulations to Veejay Floresca for another noteworthy gown that will be remembered for time to come! I’m expecting many brides-to-be out there to be wanting fluttery blush gowns. With no beads please!

Most of all, congratulations to Lara Quigaman and Marco Alvarez – so in love and so beautiful together!
