The Maierhofer-Patrimonio Nuptials: A Furever Fairytale Come True

With their precious furbaby Isla witnessing their love, Jasmine Maierhofer and Angelo Patrimonio marry in an elegant wedding.

Throughout my designing career, I have already dressed celebrities, beauty queens, models, brides, and grooms. However, my recent wedding project with Jasmine Maierhofer and Angelo Patrimonio truly warmed my heart.

Jasmine is one of our country’s top fashion models. Not only did she work with me in my fashion shows, but she also worked with other designers—luxury brands such as Valentino, Balmain, and Tod’s.

When Jasmine tapped us to create her wedding gown, the first thing that came to my mind was, “Why did she choose me?” She has already worn elaborate, gorgeous couture pieces from other brands, including international creators, but she came to us. It felt so special to know that she wanted us to be part of her special day.

Dressing Jasmine and Angelo

Despite being a highly acclaimed model, Jasmine is really down to earth. Talking to her felt like we’ve known each other for a long time. Plus, she’s really accommodating—not only to me but to my team as well. She’s really outgoing, and she wants everyone to have a great time. I wanted these aspects of her to be incorporated into her wedding gown.

Jasmine told me that for her upcoming marriage, she wanted to wear something elegantly simple. I granted that wish by culminating that concept in a simple but ethereal dress.

Thus, I created a fully corseted, silhouette ball gown with beaded tulle for Jasmine. It came with detachable bishop puff sleeves and a sweetheart neckline. At the back, you will see conventional opaque Swarovski crystals—finished with a cathedral bridal train for a dramatic effect. However, the ball gown itself is not the conventional pure white—rather, it was mixed with nude and blush undertones that further illuminated the glitters from the tulle.

On the other hand, her groom, Angelo Patrimonio, is humble and soft-spoken—even as a celebrity. That’s why I wanted their garbs to match. We used textured linen in blue for his suit and added a simple blue bowtie. It did not scream of something grand, but it exuded muted opulence that definitely complemented the vibe of Jasmine’s dress.

A Shared Love for Dogs

What I loved about this couple is that they shared the same love for furry pals as I do. In fact, Jasmine and Angelo have a long-haired chihuahua named Isla and she was with Jasmine at every fitting. Since Isla was going to be their ring bearer, I thought: what better way to make the experience extra special and fun than by creating a piece for Isla as well?

And that was exactly what I did! I took some inspiration from Jasmine’s dress and incorporated it into Isla’s ensemble, making it a wonderful match to the couple’s ensemble.

The fitting experience, especially with Jasmine, was definitely uplifting. Not only were there fewer repairs, but we were all talking like friends and family—just having fun. Inspiration was brimming everywhere, so it was easy to conceptualize their outfits. Plus, hearing Jasmine and Angelo’s pleasant feedback meant the world to me because their glowing faces showed how much they loved their attires.

On Their Wedding Day

The day of their wedding started very gloomily. The skies were dark, as though rain was waiting to pour. But the heavens seemed to clear the moment Jasmine stepped out of her white Audi sports car. With every step she took—closer and closer to Angelo, the day just became brighter and brighter. As soon as the curtain opened and she sashayed down the aisle, everything had fallen into place.

After countless runways that she has walked on, Jasmine glided on her own stage that day. And this time the goal was different. She was not just modeling a brand this time—she was walking towards the man that she chose to be with forever.

Looking back, Jasmine is truly one of the best models that I have worked with. Out of all the fashion shows that we’ve done together, this is one of my favorites. I treasure how she put her trust in me and it was my absolute honor to make her feel like a princess on her special day.

Congratulations, Jasmine and Angelo!
