Hello, dolls!!! 🙂 One of the things that I really love about the American culture is how they celebrate life and love in so many ways. Growing up, I’ve always been jealous of kids abroad who can go “trick or treating” during Halloween, ; teenagers who can experience being asked to prom in a cute-cheesy way; and women who can celebrate their bachelorette party with all things fun and crazy. I can see a lot of people back home who started embracing these fun celebrations, so I am really happy cause it won’t be too bizarre if I try and bring a couple of traditions from here when I celebrate our big day next year.
I have not been to a lot of weddings, and all of the weddings that I’ve been to I was a part of the entourage…which is weird cause at that time I felt really young! haha. I’ve been a flower girl, a junior bridesmaid, and a secondary sponsor. So just imagine how excited I was when Frances asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. I was very happy because I am going to be a part of something beautiful.

Got more excited when I saw our invites. I asked A for this as soon as I got back from Manila.
I stayed at Frances’ the night before the wedding. I was so thrilled when she asked me to, cause I know I would be seeing this munchkin before I got to sleep and when I wake up.
Baby Roger at 5AM (or maybe earlier? haha)
We only had 3-4 hours of sleep, the bride to be could not sleep and we just talked about the sweetest stuff until we’ve finally decided to take our “beauty” rest. My heart melted during our entire conversation, she reminded me of how beautiful our friendship is and all the awesome things that we shared together.
The girls got a sweet ride going to the church! 😉
It was a beautiful wedding and I am so grateful that I was able to be part of it.
Love this family!!!
The very beautiful and creative bouquet that the bride made!!!! I kept mine and put it in our living room.
We went to this lake close to the reception to take pictures.
We only had a small amount of time to do so because all the guests were already waiting for the reception to start. haha
I love this creative centerpiece 🙂
Our table! 🙂
The city where we met.. where I found love… and where my dreams came true.
The photographer made me do this.
Sweetness captured on my phone 🙂
On the dance floor with my love
My love gave the most amazing best man speech I have heard! He was so witty he made everyone laugh..and aaaah my most favorite part? When he looked at me across the room and mentioned how “WE” began and how Frances and Roger took part of that. We are so lucky to have him!!!
So glad to see Sam again and some friends that I have not seen in a long time! 😉
One of the best blessings this year. Meeting this cutie, Roni! <3
With Little Ms. Roni <3
She was a better dance partner than A….. hahaha
And to Frances, the most beautiful bride I’ve seen this year, thank you for making me a part of your wedding.
I will forever treasure the conversation that we had the night before your wedding. <3
…and to my forever date <3
…I love you <3

I hired a make-up artist to do my face. I ws not confident with my “MU skilzz” that time so I had to fall back to hiring someone. I was happy with how it turned out, I did not want something too heavy and she did a great job on not making me look like a clown. HA HA
