Weddings…

I love weddings.. .yeah I know it’s quite unusual for a man to appreciate weddings, the romantic stuffs that come with weddings (too much to handle!)…The financial side of a wedding can actually drive a single man back to his mother’s womb. Did I mention that an average man who’s allergy to commitment can equal that of an asthmatic child to a cat’s fur…will probably sweat a bucket once his significant other starts showing signals of ‘I wanna walk down the aisle’ dreams…

I can’t actually speak for others but I’m a fan of ‘this happens only once in a lifetime‘ mentality when it comes to weddings. Weddings need not be grand or too expensive though, but I really appreciate weddings showing the couple taking the extra mile to prepare a good one… If you can pull-off a nice wedding, somehow you’ve shown signs of readiness to face the challenges married couples encounter in their lives together…

Last weekend, my wife and I had the honor of being invited to the weddings of my office friends…Two weddings in two days…I have to say that the two couples deserve all the best wishes they received…Nice venues… good food…entertainment, lovely brides, dashing grooms!!!etc… Most of all, happiness really radiated from their faces…heaven!

valentine

Was it three weeks ago when we heard mass at Greenbelt …and something about the homily that kinda stuck in my mind (no, not in a deep reflection kind of thing and believe me, I’m usually in another universe during homily time to be able to grasp the priest’s sermon)….

The priest was saying something about how the statement…”a face only a mother could love” is not a compliment however way you look at it… I can’t remember how he came to say that…(again it’s me in a different  dimension, probably Pluto at that time)…

I just remembered an anecdote that happened on our wedding day… See, my sisters were raving about how beautiful my wife was on my Big day (not that she’s less beautiful any other day, but you know, the concept of a blushing bride and all that stuff, ehem) and my mother totally agreed…and they were telling me how lucky I was… suddenly mother innocently blurted… ” e, di daman padadaig ang anak ko, kapogi pogi ga rin naman”… I just smiled then….talking about a face only a mother could love..hehe

here’s a photo of our wedding three years ago..(one of my favorite photos <taken by Buencamino Photography> , I realized that the best photos of a couple’s kiss is one not choreographed, just like this one hehehe)
