As blogged HERE, the family drove all the way from south to north to attend my cousin Kuya Miki's wedding with Ate Sheila in Holiday Inn Pampanga last Sunday. I didn't really expect anything from the event, since my mom just told us to mark the dates for this civil (family-only) "small" wedding, and to bring extra clothes because we will be sleeping over in a "resort" in Pampanga.
First, it wasn't a small wedding! We witnessed something more of an intimate wedding, I guess, since only families of the bride and groom were invited. But bigtime siya! :D And second, it wasn't just any pipichuging resort, we actually stayed in a bungalow house--all to ourselves! Shalani, I tell you! :D Thanks Kuya Miki for this instant-outing! :D
Dad fixing his tie, and Mom putting on make up:
Konting flip pa ng hair, mom! Haha!
The wedding set-up, a really beautiful venue! Sayang hindi ko naabutan na may sunset! :D
My Tito Rick, the groom- Kuya Miki, and my Tita Emma!
I realized that a civil wedding is the fuss free no-drama version of a church wedding. I guess that's why they added this "march" for Ate Sheila. :)
I can't imagine my wedding without this march, right? :)
I've always wanted to get wed in a beautiful garden, poolside, or by the sea! :D
It's the ambiance, dude! The ambiance! <3
Outdoor weddings <3
Also, in a civil wedding, as we all know, the ceremony is presided by a judge or a local civil authority. In this nuptial, they had the Mayor.
The mayor had quite a long talk, hehe, so my sisters and I played with the camera!
Trying to be attentive? Hehe.
Cea's funny face! ;D Haha!
Jed and Ate Ginger, the groom's siblings! :)
The mag-manugangs! Haha! Tita Emma chit-chatting with the mother of the bride:
Our attention went back to the couple when they were asked to stand up already:
"You may now kiss the bride!" (didn't hear this line though! :D)
My dad is one of the ninongs:
After the signing of the marriage register, finally...DINNER! :)
Salad Buffet! After the wedding, my mom told me that Kuya Miki really made sure the buffet is vegetarian friendly for me!
Desserts Buffet: (Ate got goodies from this table first! :D)
A toast by the newly weds! :)
Saan naman lalamierda sila mom and daddykins??? Haha!
Photo with girl cousins! :)
Ate, Ate Ginj, Ate Kaye, ME!, Cea
Picture with the bride and groom! :)
After the great food and gazillion photo ops, my sisters and I played by the poolside with the camera and my cellphone's flashlight, hah! :D
Sending my love to YOU this Christmas! :)
And this parol too! Hehe!
And now, my outfit photos! =)
Bangles and Triple Turquoise Ring (ANAGON)
Green Boho Silk Dress (Thrifter), Gold Flats (Rubi/Cotton On)
And of course, a highlight on the bridal dress! :)
" Grecian style wedding dresses are hot at the moment – high-waisted with floaty materials, they would make me look like a mountain, but if you’re slim and smaller breasted, it’s a style that could look stunning." (source)
Ending this blog entry with my dream wedding gowns, hehe! If I am going to get married anytime soon (hahaha), here's what I'll probably wear:
To Kuya Miki and Ate Sheila Mutuc, CHEERS! :)
