Heartfelt Wedding Moments
“Favorite moment ko – walking down the aisle, watching our families, my parents waiting for their only princess to come near them and my groom waiting at the altar teary-eyed.”
–Tracy Campeciño Cabalit-Fortugaliza
“Wala akong mapili kasi lahat ng moments sa wedding namin is favorite namin talaga. Nangyari kasi lahat ng sa plano at nag-enjoy kaming lahat. Ilagay ko lang siguro dito yung most Memorable moment ng wedding ko – our Bride and Father of the Bride dance. Ewan pero naiyak kami dalawa habang ginagawa ito. Dahil sa magkahalong tuwa at lungkot siguro. Last 2016 kasi nastroke si papa. Luckily nakapiling pa sya namin up to this day. Sabi nga ng wedding message ko sa kanya, “Papa, maswerte tayong dalawa dahil nasurvive mo ang stroke mo na may 50-50 chance of survival para mawitness mo ang kasal ng iyong paboritong anak” Humagulgol sya ng iyak after😅 and all throughout sa ceremony and reception di mapigilan ang ‘tears of joy’ (daw) nya. Papa malayo man ako sa inyo ngayon (dahil may asawa na ako), mahal na mahal ko kayo ni Mama.”
– Jenny Tupaz-Naig
“I thought na yung walking the isle ang magiging sagot ko dito.. Pero hindi.. memorable for me ay yung sa part ng wearing of rings. We married in a church this 2020 (pandemic). I cried while saying, ‘I give you this ring as a sign of my love…’ Muntik ko nang di matapos yung line. Unexpected kasi I don’t exactly know why, pero palagay ko I felt how true the words and the lines are. 6 years na kaming living together, and some would say na buhay mag-asawa na ang naging buhay namin, na ang kasal ang parang to make all things ‘official’ or in paper kumbaga. Na day after the wedding, same pa rin dahil we have been living together na nga. Pero nung mismong moment na yun, dun ko naramdaman na the wedding is more than a legitimacy of paper or documents, it is a lifetime promise to the person you choose to spend all your days- in bright and dark times. I cried because yung mismong act na yun, we are binding our relationship in front of our family, the Church, to God.”
“I have two favorites, one is when my brother and my uncle is covering me with the veil. It felt like they are wrapping me to be a present for the groom. And two is the homily of our priest presider, we really made sure that the priest that we grew up with will be the one to preside our sacrament of marriage. It is made special since I felt like the homily was more personal since He knew us from our younger years.”
–Stacy Ross Cordovez Mandocdoc
“Dance with my Dad. I never had a debut or 18th birthday celebration that’s why this has been special for me because this was the first time I had a dance with my Daddy wearing a gown. 😊✨ Sabi nya while we’re dancing ” nakakaiyak naman toh” hehe. (To the tune of Butterfly Kisses)”
“Favorite moment is when we said each other’s vows with matching iyakan, tagos sa puso.”
“Napaka magical pagtingin mo sa special people na nasa harap nyo lahat sila masaya bago mag kiss the bride. May nagtetears of joy pa. Sabi ko kasi kay hubby, mag take a glimpse tayo sa mga taong anjan simula’t sapul. Nag time travel ung utak namin. Naalala namin parehas 7 years wow. Sa wakas! Parang “looks like we made it, look how far we’ve come my baby” ang peg.”
–MC Mesana – Macalisang
“Wearing of rings and wedding vows! I think this is the most awaited and best part! I got so emotional, it feels surreal.”
“Favorite moment ko nung wedding when he says his wedding vows. My hubby is a kind of introvert na napakabihira niya magsabi ng mga sweet na bagay pagdating sakin. Hehehe He always bully me, but he’s a kind of man that is more on actions fewer in words. We’ve been together for 6years and I am his First and Last.😍 Those lines that I will never forget is, “Kahit ganon yung palagi kong sinasabi sayo na wala akong sayong nagustuhan pero ikaw parin ang pinili ko at pipiliin ko araw araw kasi ikaw yung minahal ko at mamahalin ko habangbuhay.””
“Yung nag message yung mama at papa ko na almost 24 years ko di nakita.”
Fun Wedding Moments
“Nung sinabihan na kami na pwede na kami magkiss.. naiilang pa rin si misis.. di kasi sanay sa public magkiss 😂😂😂😂 inabot pa ata ng 5 minutes bago pumayag magkiss😂”
–Elmer Casauay (Groom)
“Fave part ko is nung sinabi ni Mayor na “You may now embrace the bride”, tapos binulong nya “I love you”. Yung ngiti ko day 😂. Such a priceless moment 🥺”
– Clara Juana
“Every part of our wedding is worth remembering 🙂 But one moment that stood out was when our Pastor announced “You may now kiss the bride”. Kita naman sa picture ang Ngiting Tagumpay namin. Super aliw and tawanan ng guests sa reaction ni hubby, lahat naghihiyawan. They were clapping so hard, beaming at us with so much happiness. We felt so blessed to be surrounded with people who dearly love us and who made time and effort to be with us in our very special day. It was such a wonderful kilig feeling!”
–Wilhelmina La Madrid-Grejarte
“My favorite moment is when our pastor told my husband “You may kiss the bride”. After a few seconds my husband ask our pastor how to kiss 😂😂😂 twas very funny because we both don’t know how to act properly.”
“Graduated Sept.18th, I have a lot of favorites.. One is the preparation, coz dun ko nakita ang excitement ni hubby na matutuloy na kasal namin (supposed to be May30), he is so willing to help sa Lahat na gusto ko since 10days lang preparation namin.😁 Then on the wedding ceremony, when I saw him paglabas ko ng door.”
–Menargie Del Socorro Matociño
“Sexy dance ni groom😂. Hanggang ngayon tawa pa din ako ng tawa pag nakikita ko video. Ang galing gumiling eh. 😂😂😂. Kahit 13 lang kami push pa din sa program at super saya pa din.”
“When pastor loudly said, “Eto na ang pinakahihintay ni Kristine, you may now kiss the bride”. Kaya ayun ako na naunang kumiss kinagat kopa. Ang harot ko eh Hahahahha”
–Kristine June Dacoco
“Yung program na talagang tawanan namin kasama ang guests ay to the max. Hahahaha. Busog lusog then uber tawanan. Wala ng poise poise char! Isa ito din sa fave photos ko and will have this framed, candid and it shows na we are really happy and having fun in each other’s arm. NAAAAAAKS HAHAHA”
