My Sister's Wedding

The main reason why I traveled 18,000 miles or so to the Philippines with an 8-month old baby was for my baby sisters wedding.

And of course, being my friends, I have to share with you all this really important occassion in our lives.

It's mostly pictures, but I hope you watch the short 3 minute video in the end so you can see what I actually witnessed for my beloved sister on this very memorable day!

All excited for the day to begin

To say that my sister is gorgeous, is an understatement. :-)
Moments before the big event with my sissy

A special member of the entourage - Sophia the flower girl and dad the umm,
Official "stroller pusher" LOL!

Small church filled with baby's breath all around

The Flower girls (my niece Alexa & Sophia) and the Bible bearer (my son Aidan), ring bearer my nephew Caleb
Our happy family
 The reception was just down the hill from the church, literally. And I love how it was decorated!

LED lights and chandeliers make it an elegant ceilingscape

The stage was also filled with lights and flowers

The tables were filled with gorgeous blooms like these

There were a lot of other fun stuff too like photobooths, fireworks and of course some dancing!

But the most important thing of course, is that we get to witness how a love is sealed thru the beautiful bond of matrimony! 

I love you sis, and to our newest family member, Marlon, love you too!

Here is a brief video of the important events that transpired thru that special day! 

Hope you have a Fabulous Weekend!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...

  4. Vel, I saw your wedding pic on Instagram and they were gorgeous, you sister is stunning, you look like twins!

Many blessings to them for a wonderful marriage.

  5. Oh VEL!!!! Where to begin? This entire wedding is absolutely beautiful. I think your gorgeous sisters wedding dress is the prettiest I've seen in a long time. Her veil is also exquisite. The flowers were also just lovely.
