Intimate Wedding

I attended an intimate family wedding today, May 18.  Nolan (brother of Mayette) and Sol(bride) invited me.  I am so touched by the gesture, the wedding guests were just close family and friends.  The first time they invited me to their home years ago, I did not want to attend because I was "shy".  Mayette's family knows I love Lechon.  She asked me: Lia! Why are you "shy"???   I told Mayette, I'm shy because your family might think I'm "Matakaw".  Then she replied.... But ... they already know that a long time ago! So there is nothing to be shy about!  Hahahahaha  So.... ever since then, whenever an invitation was issued, more often than not, I would always attend.

The afternoon wedding was held at Sanctuario de San Jose in Greenhills.  The reception was at EDSA Shangri-la Hotel, Santan Room.  I was so happy because there were 3 children at our table!  Meaning more food for us.  I think Mayette made sure that there were less adults  hehehe.

We were serenaded by a surprise guest.

Martin rendered 5 songs and I took a photo opportunity. Hehehe.

 The wedding favors were miniature paintings done by Nolan.   I won a chance (via raffle) to choose my own painting.

I had so much fun today!  Good thing I was wearing a shift dress!  More freedom to eat  hehehe but I did not over indulge.  I just feel so honored that Nolan and Sol invited me to share this special day with them.  Best Wishes to the newly weds!
