Remember my posting about a silent month of April, which happens not to be silent at all?
These were our couples from the last three days of that month…
The dentists, Dr. Ronald Cabrera (who happens to be the brother of our clients before, Dr. Edgar and Dr. Mara Ang-Cabrera) and Dr. Mae Fajardo united in marriage last 28th of April, 2007 at Shrine of Jesus and reception was at Coconut Palace. I became the commentator in the church on this wedding as no one from their families and friends would like to take the role. And who would forget the spectacular fireworks during their first dance? It was carefully timed with the song. Which actually was a coincidence…there’s really magic during weddings.
The model looking Ethel Borcena was our bride last 29th of April, 2007. Obviously, the groom, Dennis Sy was MIA (missing-in-action, was busy with his guests). It was an early 8 o’clock in the morning ceremony at Caleruega Chapel in Tagaytay. Yes, we went straight to Tagaytay after our wedding in Coconut Palace. We barely slept, about 4 hours only cause calltime was at 4am. We don’t mind the lack of sleep…it doesn’t show in the picture right? The guests were greeted with delicious breakfast upon reaching the chapel. Bizu macaroons, pastries were served with a choice of coffee or tea in Caleruegas’ gazebos. It was a very light reception, as Michael Lim hosted the event. I can’t forget what Dennis said to Ethel as he was asked by Michael Lim for a message. Dennis said while giggling “I’m the man of the house!” Ethel replied by saying “You are only joking!” Everyone laughed. The couple was a sight to see during this time. Weddings can also be funny!
This time, the singers, Miles Samonte and Ricky Mariano exchanged wedding vows at Santuario de San Antonio and reception was at Oasis Manila last 30th of April, 2007. It was a monday and who thought that a monday wedding is a flop. Miles and Ricky proved it wrong. They were truly loved by their families and friends because there were about 250 guests who arrived. Miles and Ricky were part of Trumpets so one can imagine that they would have prepared for their wedding reception very well. A number of good song numbers happened from friends of the couple. Of course, there’s a segment when the couple sang to each other. The festivities were capped by a fireworks. Coming from this wedding, I can say…weddings can also be musical!
Weddings can happen everyday but there are distinct characters on each. We proved it from these three wedding.
Cheers to the three couples!
