The Wedding

The Preparation

Ton had only 14 days’ vacation and it was almost spent with processing all of the requirements we needed for our marriage and the preparation for the wedding itself.

We had to buy our wedding clothes, bridal rings, go to different  authorities for authentication of additional papers needed for the marriage and etc, etc. We were so busy but we were happy. 

It was travelling back and forth from Manila to San Pablo City. It was tiring and stressful but we managed to stay smiling, positive and jolly. 

We didn’t mind. We were in love so that was all that matters. Everything seemed easy and light.

Guess that’s how people are when everything around them is red which they say is the color of love.

Unforeseen circumstance

The wedding was almost cancelled. What???......

On the day of our wedding a storm hit the country. Ton said it was the first time he had ever seen a very strong rain.

We were supposed to get married at 4pm but someone called us from the city hall that they had to cancel the ceremony and reschedule it to another day.

Everybody was asked to go home because of the storm so nobody will be around to facilitate the marriage.

Ton and I were caught in surprise, no that can’t be. Ton was scheduled to go home the next day at 10 am so he had to be checking in 3 hours before the flight. 

And that meant going to Manila before or at 5 am because we still need to go to the apartelle to pack his things.

Ton was very worried. I was too but I stayed calm. I explained to the woman that we can’t reschedule the wedding, telling her the reason why.

Fortunately, they understood our ordeal and  they reset the time to 1:30 pm.

The Ceremony

We were picked up from our hotel by one of our godmothers and a very good friend Gloria, I call her Ma’am Gloh and headed to the city hall.

My father, godmothers, auntie, cousins, sister, nephews, niece and my daughter Isabel were there to witness the union of two people from two different cultures who were united because their hearts spoke the universal language.

Here's a very beautiful definition or quotes of love written in the bible in Corinthian 13:4-7-8

"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast.
It is not proud, it is not rude.
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs.
Loves does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Ton was wearing a suit, black coat, pants and shoes and a light violet polo with a matching tie. I was in red dress with a black little coat and black hi-heels. 

We were even provided with a choir who sang beautiful romantic songs, very apt for the atmosphere. 
My father escorted and handed me to Ton who was all smile, patiently waiting for me.

Our godmothers marched too and Isabel who was wearing a red little gown was our flower girl who carried our wedding rings.

August 17, 2007 was one of the most important days in my life

Sealing the promise of love, “for better or for worse, in health and in sickness, till death do us part” to a man whom I entrusted my precious heart with. 

After the wedding, we went to our reception at Max Restaurant and my family, relatives, dear friends and colleagues came and greeted us with best wishes. 

Ton and I were very happy. It was a memorable day for us celebrating with our family and friends.

Below is a  2 part video of the wedding photos taken during  the  wedding ceremony conducted by a judge in San Pablo City Hall and likewise at the reception hall at Max Restaurant. 

Please bear with the quality of the photos as some of them were not captured clearly. :)
