A little girls dream wedding April 8, 2008

as a little girl

Like most little girls I’ve dreamt about my wedding.  We all had our share of storybooks and movies of fairytales and happy endings. We move through life waiting (well actually searching) for that perfect partner. Most of the times we get hurt, we learn and then become unbelieving and jaded. We begin to move with more caution and more issues. We have more considerations and more rules, but sometimes some of us get lucky!  I did! Thank God, my God’s gift (now my hubby) found me.  I have learned and mastered the value of WAITING instead of SEARCHING.

Not all weddings are perfect, but every wedding is special.  I kept this wisdom in my head as I enjoyed every moment of our wedding. No matter how OC you are, we need to come to terms with the reality that something can and will go wrong. From minor things to major mishaps, the couple just needs to take it in as part of their moment and memory.       

Last February 17, 2008, we tied the knot and as I write this blog, we’re in the process of adjusting to our new life together. We’re very happy and blessed.

Coordinating my first wedding March 1, 2008

My friend’s wedding

Last December 29, 2007, I had my first shot as a wedding coordinator!   I’d like to thank my college barkada for inviting me to join their events group, Dreamworkers. Perfect timing to prepare me for my wedding.     

The work of a coordinator is laborious and yet very fulfilling! It rained that day and I got drenched looking like a wet chicken wearing heels and make-up. I drove like a madman that day. As an usherette I had to make sure that the reception is perfect before guests arrive.  With a smile I greeted each guest, and with a smile we ended the day.  

I left the event knowing that we made our friend, Kytes Navarro (now Mrs. Kytes De Laza) a happily married woman. It also helps to hear the great feedback we’ve had from the guests. (Do I see more business coming? Wahoo!)   

Her wedding is documented in a wedsite.
