Scenes from a wedding

Made like a paparazzi at Charlene and Pancho’s wedding last Tuesday, January 8. My takeaway from it? I need me a new camera! Especially for photo-worthy moments like this wedding. It’s so incredibly frustrating when your iPhone runs out of juice at the wrong moment!

That’s my takeaway? One of the most beautiful and romantic weddings I’ve ever attended and I grouse about my (lack of) camera? I’m kidding. From the weather, which cooperated — well, for the crucial parts of the day — to the ceremony, the reception, the fun and the dancing afterwards, it was perfection. Proof that God is a sucker for romance and true love.

Weddings like Cha-Cha and Pancho’s are proof to this not-so-secret-reader (still!)-of-romance-novels, that true love wins out, sometimes you do get to marry your soulmate, and that happily ever after exists.

Waiting for the mass to begin, I had to take a photo of the altar. The afternoon light filtering through the stained glass windows was perfect

Image

Mela and Lorenzo. Next ones to tie the knot in April

Image

Pancho and mom waiting for the bride. Wonder if he was nervous? He didn’t look it

Image

Veil sponsors Pierra and Toto, looking like newlyweds themselves

Image

Mabel and Peejo — another great looking couple

Mabel and Pierra looking fabulous

Image

Cha-cha looking ethereal, everyone started clapping when she started walking down the aisle

Image

I started tearing up right around here. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house when Cha’s dad started crying going down the aisle, and especially when he handed Cha over to Pancho. Great emotional moment

Signing of the contract and before the newlyweds were presented

Image

How could I not take a photo of this adorable little man? So cheek-pinch worthy!

Image

It boggles my mind that these two are an old married couple!

Image

So are these two!

Image

The deed is done — now time to party!

Image

But first, a closer look at the gown…

Image

… and the bouquet

Image

I bet these two were wishing us all to hell at this point so they could be alone…

Image

I love the table centerpieces! The attention to detail in this wedding is astounding! I wanted to steal the birdcage but it wouldn’t fit into my clutch

Image

Floral arrangements. I love the seeming casualness of flowers in the mason jars and using a mirror as base for the tchotchkes was genius

The main table

Aaaand scene!

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
