A Wedding

I am writing this post in advance. I promised myself I'll be more thankful for work, which means while you are reading this, I am probably in my desk catching up on things that I put on hold for the holidays. Nyii. While I am working on fulfilling my New Year's resolution, allow me to share photos of our friend Jay's wedding to the love of his life, Claudette.

So sad I couldn't get a better photo of the bride. Here is Claudette in all her blushing glory!
The villas/cottages at Acuatico are refreshing.

Benjamin is having too much fun!
I went with my ex-boyfriend...who is now my husband.

Jay and Claudette's wedding was the first beach wedding that I attended actually. We drove all the way to Acuatico in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas with our college friends Tads and Grace and their little charmer Benjamin. It was a loooong drive, more than three hours in fact, but all worth it. Jay and Claudette really put a lot of effort in the details. For example, they gave away fans to the guests so we wouldn't feel warm during the ceremony. Quick thinking!

Old (literally and figuratively Haha) friends from the UP Pre-Medical Society - Tads and Richie

Our table numbers consisted of bag tags shaped like flip flops (so very beach appropriate!) -

This is how I pull a Shalani. Wahaha

The wine was good -

They had a photo booth too -

And personally, one of the highlights of the evening was when we were allowed to light these hot air lanterns and release them unto the open sea. Ours was a success. Benja-boy loved the experience. Malik would have approved!

Oops. Missed Benjamin.

There you are.

Up, up and my beautiful balloon!

The ceremony and the reception were both elegant in their simplicity. And more importantly, it was one of those weddings where you know that the groom and the bride are just happy to get married to each other. It was lovely. Congratulations Schfunky! Jumack-pot ka nanaman!
