Snapshots from a Wedding

God intended November 9th, 2008, to be one of the most spectacular days in the lives of Henri & Rolyn Fernandez. The skies were a tad gray, but all 360 guests felt as if the sun had never shined brighter while two souls' union was made solemn and official at the San Agustin Church in Manila.

The second we arrived at the concrete-laden parking lot the of the ancient sacred landmark, the rain began to pelt and the bride was on the verge matrimonial surrender as the doors of the church opened to receive a beautiful wife to be (Yes, we were late. Blame the ineffectual traffic system in the metropolis).

The Holy Ceremony
When Rolyn cascaded down the red-carpet aisle in her Filipiniana-inspired Edd Sy wedding gown to the tune of Ikaw (You), heads turned and gazed in awe, and the ceremony of the year rhythmically took place in a tear-jerking motion.

The vintage jaguar has just dropped off the belle.

Here comes the bride...


Her entrance as effortlessly dramatic as possible

This is really it...

Wedding vows always come with blessings from sponsors.

A sweet kiss to kick off a thousand days together

It's official! Ladies and gentlemen, meet Mr. & Mrs. Henri Fernandez!

The Grand Reception
After the wedding rites, the bridal entourage and invitees headed to the Coconut Palace at the CCP Complex for the dazzling R.S.V.P. event.

The newlyweds arrive with a sparkle.
The master of ceremonies, Albert Sumaya, renders a song number while the couple dances the night away.

Love is in the air.

The bride and groom take a moment to pose with good old friends.

It might as well be called a high school reunion.

Memories galore!


Here's a little something my hubby and I got as a souvenir from the Sac-Fernandez nuptials:

You look very lovely---pati make-up ang ganda---it emphasizes your natural beauty.

Kate said...

I'm glad you liked it, Bingkee. My friends and I did our own make-up while running late :-)
