Leleng and Berto’s Pangasinan Wedding, Our First Out-Of-Town Event

This year (2015) is Colors of Zhar’s by far the busiest and most exciting year ever – being able to book numerous weddings, debuts and birthdays, fashion shows, and photoshoots! We really are very thankful for the warm reception and support from all our satisfied customers who have provided us with very positive feedbacks and recommendations.

Also this year marked another milestone for the team, as this is also the year of our first ever out-of-town event! It is courtesy of the #LelengAndBerto wedding which took place in the far north, Pangasinan – a good six hours travel from Manila.

We are very proud to be chosen by Rose Ann (Leleng) and Robert (Berto) for trusting Colors of Zhar to be their official hair and make-up artist on the greatest day of their lives. They have chosen the Traditional Makeup Package for a huge entourage of 30+ people. Our team was given a challenging task of accommodating 16 people consisting of the bride and her bridesmaids, and ensure that everybody is at their best look during the wedding.


It indeed was challenging – but with Colors of Zhar team’s dedication, hardwork, professionalism, and efficiency, we were able to complete the entire job before the call time and still have 30 minutes to spare! The job included full hairstyling and makeup for each of the 16 lovely ladies for an almost 5-hour session at the hotel preparation. It is not just the quantity – and even at that huge number of people, quality is never compromised.


Here at Colors of Zhar, we always plan ahead and ensure effective time management so that the couple will not be stressed out during the wedding, something that happens often with other hair and makeup services and artists. As Colors of Zhar makeup artists, it is also our responsibility that the wedding (or any event) is as smooth-flowing and organized as possible. The only thing that the couple need to do during their wedding is to be beautiful, and that’s it!


The church call time is 3:00pm at Mangaldan Church which is 30 minutes from the hotel, Dagupan Village and Garden Hotel. The groom and entourage was able to depart from the hotel at 2:15pm, and the bride at 2:30pm as planned. Colors of Zhar was able to complete all the requirements and already applying the finishing touches as early as 2:00pm.


The bride arrived at Mangaldan Church 10 minutes early – and our team even still have spare time to apply retouches for the bride and the bridesmaids; and helped the wedding organizer setting up wedding items like the bubble maker, arranging the offertory items, and other extra activities. The wedding ceremony went well, a solemn and meaningful celebration of two souls making the promise of forever in front of God. Colors of Zhar is very honored to be part of that once in a lifetime moment in the lives of Leleng and Berto.


Church ceremony ended at exactly 4:00pm – and the usual routine after the wedding: photoshoot, recessional activities, video recording of vows – took place. The couple arrived back at the hotel reception venue at around 4:30pm, and Colors of Zhar is back in action, applying hair and makeup retouches to the bride and groom making sure that they look amazing during their grand entrance. We applied a light makeup for the groom, and redo the hairstyle for the bride to a slightly casual look for the party. Then the reception proper – a fun and wacky ceremony consisting of an “Eye of the Tiger” entrance song, seductive dance by the groom to remove the bride’s garter, an unprepared Best Man speech – and a lot of spontaneous events making the reception a formal yet enjoyable event.


The prenup and SDE (same day edit) video was showcased during the event where you can see several glimpses of Colors of Zhar team in action during the wedding preparation.


Again, a really big THANK YOU to the couple, Leleng and Berto for the trust on the Colors of Zhar brand and the opportunity to be part of the wedding. Looking forward to working with you again.


Yours truly,

Colors of Zhar
