The Wedding - Part 4 (Portrait)

Image
Last July 5, 2014, I married the love of my life.  These are the written chronicles of that beautiful day.
Being an only child, I find that trust is a very important word, seldom given and hardly earned.
Indeed, I am a believer of the age old adage, "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." and can only truly count in one hand, the people that I have full faith in.
But with a master of his craft, like our photographer Oly Ruiz, at the helm, there was immediate and total confidence, assurance, and certainty, and it was our great pleasure to watch this genius work his magic.
These are the official portraits of that important day, courtesty of Mr. Metrophoto.

* For our wedding ceremony, we specifically chose the Magallanes Church in Makati due to its impressive architecture, steady vibe and proximity to the reception venue.

* On July 4, 2014, I checked in to my suite at the Raffles Hotel in Makati. After dinner with my parents and a late night visit from my cousins, I proceeded to write my vows on the huge desk in my room. At first I couldn't get my mind to settle down, so I went down to the Raffles Long Bar to get a drink (or three) and watch the World Cup match. The ideas flowed freely after.
