My Sister's Wedding

Last December 20, we were off to Bulacan for my sister's afternoon wedding. Along the way, we had lunch in Kenny Rogers at NLEX Balagtas gas station. When we arrived in the hotel, it was my turn for the hair and make up do's. Hermo was the one who did it on my wedding and same for my sister.

Ate's most special day happened in St. Ildefonsus Church, Guiguinto Bulacan. This Church has a sentimental value for us. It was where we grew up knowing God during our elementary days as it was part of the school we went through. We had our confirmation and first communion there. It was also where we attend 1st Friday masses, joined the choir and had our graduation ceremonies after the 6th grade. It really brought a lot of good memories to me of my childhood days.

Reese and I were part of the wedding entourage. By default, I was the Matron of Honor and Reese was one of the flower girls along with her 2 little aunties: Mitch and Nicole. While Gani opted to be the so called "unofficial" photographer of the event.

It was a Catholic wedding and I did like the way the presiding priest gave his sermon to the couple. Lesson learned; do not put blame on your husband or wife. The head of the family is the husband, the president of the house while the wife takes the vice president position. And in the event that the husband made a mistake, the wife no longer has to blame him as the husband can be expected to realize his mistake... I hope this will always be true to all families.

After the ceremony, reception immediately followed and was held at Malolos Club Royale. It was quite short but sweet. With the exception of the emcee's forgetfulness, the preparations they did turned out to be good.

It was nice to note too that my wedding shoe was put into good use once more after being stocked for 2.5 years. Although I experienced some pain walking to and fro during the event as I don't typically wear high heels.

To Ate and Toper, congratulations and keep your love growing as you grow together. May your dreams come true!
