The wedding ceremony was simple and short, 30 minutes the most. I will skip for now the ceremony proper because I still don’t have the official photos. I also need permission from the lovely bride before I could post them on ohmybuhay.
The guests proceeded to the courtyard while the photographers took photos of the newly weds in the other parts of the vineyard.
After the ceremony, Wilna gave Nyke and the bridesmaids angpao.
I wanted to drink a glass of fresh minty lemonade pero ubos na, sayang.
Oyen chose all this food based on what she and we would like. Her criterion was to serve food that she herself would love to eat. Kaya eto— pizza, french fries, whole scallops, etc. lahat masarap. She also wanted to have a grazing table with assorted cheeses buti na lang she didn’t. Guests would be too full to eat dinner.
The temperature dropped and I was beginning to feel very cold. I looked for the wooden crate where the shawls were and grabbed one. The fabric was sheer but it still helped protect my shoulders from the cold.
I didn’t go around taking pictures of our guests trusting that the hired photographers were doing that. My regret, I should’ve went around taking pictures of everyone. I wanted to remember each and every face. We appreciated that they braved the pandemic to be here.
