lets just go.
get on a bus, a plane or a boat.
away from here.
let’s get out of here and celebrate whats ours.
no rings. no complications.
just what its meant to be.
it’s not the next step. not marriage.
just a promise.
not to the law, not to the universe.
it’s not a piece of paper, its not the rings
it’s what I gave you from the very start
respect, trust and patience
so lets just go
away from here
where we can celebrate the way its meant to be
we can go anywhere
you and me

The couple would like to have a very simple civil wedding which I would say based on “KISS” principle. KISS – Keep it simple and selected or splendid! (i just made this up)
Who is the groom? yep! my eldest son Edge 🙂 click here
yep! I screwed up, I took a blurry wedding photos 🙁
Who is the bride? Thea! click here
Yep! She did her wedding cake, simple with Edge in her mind, He loves her red velvet cake.
There is no bridesmaid and flower girl but of course, I have my youngest son who became the ring / bible bearer plus he is also the best man 🙂 all in one! The guest includes the family and closest friends of the couple. Pastor Glen officiated the ceremony at Tahanan Bistro in Antipolo.

It’s ok not to come home ma, just be at our grand wedding in Hawaii!
No!! a big NO! I won’t miss this one! no matter how simple it is, it’s not about signing that marriage contract, It is not about whether its simple or grand, it’s about witnessing the day you take your bride, stepping to another stage of life, your future and the future of your own family. I was not able to attend your college graduation and a lot of important occasions in your life but I won’t be an absentee on this one 🙂
It was for me a mixed emotions, I am happy you are marrying the love of your life, I am happy that I will have a daughter I call my own but I also feel sad that I will take a second lead in your heart , mom has to step back to give way to your wife. But it was a short sadness, a thought for a second because I know you found a woman who will also take care and love you and accept me as her mom too. Now, I have both of you and of course your brother Kevin. Wow! Our family is getting bigger 🙂
” It is not all just love, I believed there’s more to it than just loved and be loved in return. there must be respect, trust and patience, I promise to give you that”
Yes, love is not enough to become one, marriage is not a security to grow old together , God gave us heart to feel, to love one another, He gave us brain to know what is right and what is wrong, He gave us heart and brain to respect, trust and have patience to one another. Marriage is not all glitters, it has its own flaw, it is a continuous struggles, of hard work to make it through, it is not for one but for the two of you. One should know when to apologized if wrong and one should be accepting and forgiving, whoever is at fault should not forget to straightened out what went wrong. “Sorry” is nothing if you don’t mean it. Both have to give 100 percent of themselves because I believed marriage is not fifty-fifty, you give yourself wholeheartedly and should remained that way.
” being perfectly imperfect,today I commit my life to you, I promise to love you wholeheartedly no matter what”

To my dearest Edge and Thea,
Please take care of each other, give your hundred percent to this relationship and may you be blessed with children who would love you the same. I wish you all the best and whatever dream you may have to each own , don’t forget you are a team. Work for “Us” and not for “I”. For being “one” is stronger than being apart. Remember to compliment each other and not to be weary of the flaw of one. Help each other to grow, guide each other and never forget how you started, keep the respect and trust and love will bloom even more.God bless you both!
KISS – keep it safe and secure
I love you.
