Our Sweet, Simple DIY Wedding!

Weddings are one of the most beautiful events that could happen in a man and woman's life and ours is not an exception (of course!). I think it is because two hearts have decided for that lifetime commitment through uphills and downhills, sweetness and bitterness, etc. Mind you, it isn't easy but totally worth it. We have a long way to go - a lifetime actually - to stand on what we have promised to each other that one fine day in front of the altar. So, I'd like to write ( in a form of caption before each picture) bits and pieces of  our May 5, 2012 affair. :)

 This is one my favourite bridal portraits because even I only had one hour + sleep I made it through the day gracefully. Thanks be to God for the strength and peace he put into my heart that all will be well.

 The gown's design was personally picked by me - from a few inspirations into one. It fit very well the first time I tried it.

The handsome groom who looked dapper with his black suit and a bow tie. 

The theme of the wedding is combination of peach corals, peachy pinks, dark and baby pinks and anything in between. There goes my B$29.00 shoes that I am still using even after the wedding.

Took some couple portraits after the ceremony. ''Just Married'' buntings were done by yours truly.

Some details at the reception - Our favors were personalized fruit jams. Decorations included paper lanterns in candy colors. Centerpieces were from the hotel to save cost. Table numbers are our pictures holding a number sign.

Family pictures were hung at the reception in honor of our families who were not present on our wedding.

Our very own friends were the ones who graced the reception with our favourite music.

Got playful during the cutting and eating of cake :)

Our wedding could be just one of those weddings but for us it was a beautiful story that I would love to tell to my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Because the best part is, it was coordinated by our loving Father. He sent people to help us along the way. It was Him who made all things possible.
