Philippine Adventure: Day 8 - George and Pia's Wedding

Congratulations, George and Best Wishes, Pia!

It is a wedding to be remembered indeed. Everything was well-planned and organized. And for this, congratulations are also appropriate to all who worked behind the scenes.

My Cookie is the Best Man and so we had to be at the Hotel Inter-Continental Manila early for the photo sessions as well as for some last minute stuff.

At 4 pm, 6 September 2008, it was time. The ceremony was officiated by Bishop Ted Bacani at the St. John Bosco Parish along Arnaiz Avenue in Makati. The Bishop gave the couple wonderful advices on married life and everybody sure found them worthwhile.

The reception followed at The Blue Leaf. The place was also wonderfully decorated. And the tables were nicely setup with pretty centerpieces.

The food catered by Albergus Catering was also great. I specifically loved the roasted beef and mashed potato ensemble. A wide choice of desserts were also setup including a choco fountain. ^_^

As part of the reception programme, a short video clip of the couples pictures were shown. It was a lovely collection of photos. George and Pia look so good together, and they picked the nice outdoor with pretty water and landscape as the venue for their pre-nuptial photo sessions.

For the entertainment, the newly-wed couple gave their guest a treat with a slow dance as part of their grand entrance. All the guests were surprised when Pia dipped George instead. Hehe... George's young nephews and nieces also rendered an upbeat dance number for the guests.

As the wedding party drew to a close, the Matron of Honor, the Best Man (that's my Cookie), the couple's parents and the couples themselves gave their speeches.

Again, Congratulations to the newly-weds. It is such an honor to be part of this special event in George and Pia's life. Hopefully, we'll see little Georges and Pias soon. ^_^
