weddings: beauty in all angles

invite me to your wedding and i will move heaven and earth just to be there.

i may have expressed this hyperbolically, but really i will resort to this just to make the couple feel how important they are to me. besides, i love witnessing the sacrament of holy matrimony. from the interior design of the venue down to the documentation, i will always find romance, drama, humor, and rumor (wink!) in them. i guess i stuck to this reason why i opted to attend the wedding of a colleague/friend last november 30  at st. jerome emiliani and sta. cecilia parish in alabang, muntinlupa city instead of joining the gines clan reunion in indang, cavite.

frankly, i didn’t want to miss dexter and apol’s wedding. being one of our “sons” in the college of arts and sciences, the groom’s official bow from bachelorhood  meant a lot to us. in addition, it became an opportunity for a reunion with suzette palao, a former bedan co-teacher and close friend who’s now teaching in a public school. of course, not to forget was the rare chance of  bonding with the rest of our extended bedan circle.

mingling with cheerful people, we were able to sustain the jovial mode from the waiting down to the reception.

and while the program was going on at vivere hotel ballroom, it dawned upon me that weddings nowadays had gone really hi-tech. in this century, newlyweds need not wait long for their wedding video to be released. before the reception ended, we were able to view the well-edited AVP of the ceremony. we were all amazed with this big change!

sharing the same comment with my table mates, these innovations had added to the glitter and glamour of our friend’s nuptial.

touched by the groom’s thank-you speech which made special mention of us being his chosen few, i would surely include this event in one of my faves this year. thank you very much, dex, for making us a part of this milestone in your life. 
again, congratulations and best wishes to apol and you! may the Lord always bless your lifetime partnership. cheers!
