Hard on the outside. Soft on the inside.


Barbi & Jorg’s Boracay Wedding

Pumkin and I just got home from Boracay. Just time for the New Year’s Eve celebration.

Two days ago, we flew to Boracay to attend my good friend Barbi’s wedding.  This event was full of excitement and emotion.

The wedding was simple yet the very solemn ceremony made it for me as the wedding of the year. Or I could even consider it the best wedding I ever witnessed.  I can really feel and say  ”Love is in the air!”

It seems the relationship was like a whirlwind romance. I was just so pleasantly surprised when Barbi broke the news about Jorg. It may be too soon for such commitment  but for people who are in love, there is no right time. When you love, you love.

The ceremony and reception was held at Hotel Isla Boracay.

Barbi dressed in a pink gown created by Nat Manilag boarded a special “bridal car”– a boat which took her from Fairways to Hotel Isla shore.

The whole family of Jorg as well as his closest  friends took time to fly in to attend that special day.  There weren’t so many guests.  I would say around 75 guests that included  Jorg and Barbi’s family and her closest friends from the beauty and fashion industry.

Pastor Robert Hern  who is close to the couple solemnized the wedding.  They were made to give their wedding vows in their own words.  This was the part that was so moving.  As each deliver their vows, guests had shed a tear or two.  I for one would shamelessly admit. The words from Jorg and Barbi were so filled with emotion that everyone who heard them had felt it with their hearts too. No words can clearly describe that moment. And that made this wedding a very special one for me.

I may dream  to have the same kind of wedding.  Maybe not for me but for my children who I wish someday will find the right love .

Just as Barbi and Jorg did.

Just a special note, Barbi and Jorg had the best photographer capturing the moments —  Pat Dy and his team as well as the best videographer, Jason Magbanua.

I hope Pat Dy and Jason Magbanua would not mind me  posting their videos  here.  :)
