My Brother’s Wedding

One of the main reasons why I went for vacationΒ was to attend to my youngest brother’s wedding in the Philippines. My brother Jay, was marrying his co-high school teacher, Jasmine.

Being the eldest brother, I took my father’s place in the entourage. My mother wore the traditional Filipiniana gown, while I wore the traditional Barong Tagalog.

It was my son’s first time to be a ring bearer. He did very well. He also wore traditional Barong Tagalog.

The ceremony was very solemn.

Overall, the wedding was perfect.

Wishing the couple a lifetime of happiness together.

    Lovely: but how is it that children seem to know to steel that show – or – “work” the camera almost by instinct?

      That’s St. Ildephonsus Parish Church in Guiguinto Bulacan. Really perfect for weddings. The isle is long enough for the bride’s special moment (the walk from the church door to the altar). I got married in this church too.

    your son looks cute in barong; pangarap din ni gabby (anak ko) ang mag ring bearer e, kaya lang mukhang pang best man na ang binata kong mag 8 y/o na. wala kasing kasalan magaganap soon sa circle of friends and among family members.

    thanks for sharing those family photos. may your brother and his wife live happy lives together!
