a whole new world

2010, was wedding boom year! a lot of my friends and some people i know tied the knot. i love weddings! for me it's the happiest event of anyone's life. its a leap of faith kind of event. no turning back kind of thing. i also love being part of a wedding. it gives me an excuse to dress up and glam up for that day.

here a few weddings that ive been a part of.. they have different stories but one reason.. LOVE! aw... sobrang cheesy!!

Jaye and Elmer- i was one of the readers on their wedding some time May 2004. there was a typhoon that day but it didn't stop the two. rain or shine ituloy ang kasal! she was among the first close friends (the other was ging2) of mine who married early. 26 is considered early nowadays!
Nyan2 and Earl- i was one of nyan's bridesmaids! they are one of the few couples who survived a very long engagement and LDR. they were a couple for 11 yrs before tying the knot. theirs was a testament that true love waits.

april and atan- i was april's maid of honor. we are always together, we would often be mistaken as sisters. silent kind of girl meets loud guy.. mr. funny guy can tickle shy girl's fancy. and the two just jive together. opposites do attract.

joy and darrien- i was one of their witnesses during their civil wedding. it was a fun event. we were just goofing around like it was just some sort of a role play. when april got married and moved to the states, its joy who i was tied to the hip with. we're always together, they'd tease us to be lesbian lovers! haha.. darrien was our schoolmate in grade school then he transferred to cdo. just when me and joy (and tet) decided to be "apalites," darrien and joy reconnected thru friendster. the next thing i knew they were infront of a judge signing their marriage contract. gugma nga naman!

kay2 and oliver- it was also a civil wedding. i was one of the few people who knew of their love story. they had the same story with joy. oliver was also a schoolmate (darrien's batchmate). and this time they reconnected in facebook! kaye was single for a long time since her last relationship during her pre law years. after that facebook encounter she was all giddy again. it was also at this time that me and ronald were on our pa-cute stage. so after we hung up on our respective pikat-pikat, we'd call each other and get all kilig like some high school girls. only this time we were thirtiesh women! they got hitched that same year they got together. i was so happy for her!

razil and marlon- i was her candle sponsor. aside from kay2, it was razil who i had the pleasure of planning the wedding with. it was also that time when me and ronald planned to tie the knot the following year. so basically, we have the same suppliers. theirs was also a long engagement and LDR at that. truly love knows no boundaries! On October 2009, i had the previlege to witness two different love stories who tied the knot! hers and kay's!

hickol and warren- so sad i wasn't there on the day of the wedding. it was a week before mine so i was busy for the preparation. but i want to think i was part of it.. i helped hickol out with the preparation. despite the short prep but they were able to pull it through..harangin man ng sibat.. i couldn't be happier for her!

jehann and geohnel- its actually geohnel who's my classmate. jehann was just an acquaintance. but she's very nice to reach out to geohnel's side of friends. so we ended up, chika with each other. they also have an amazing story... they're batchmates but went to different school. so they know each other from way back. they reconnected thru friendster and even decided to be a couple even if they're far from each other. they finally got to be physically together last May. that was the first time they saw each other again. and got married last december 2010.

do you notice that brides have this certain glow on their wedding day? i always look forward to see the brides walk down the aisle.. and truly they're the most beautiful woman that day.. and the air is just filled with love.. i'm glad i got to be the most beautiful woman who walked down the aisle on May 29,2010!
