Super late post from last August. Something exciting that happened that month was Alex’s and Kuya Darwin’s wedding. The whole Physics Division was invited. Kat and I agreed to go together so I stopped by their house on my way to the church.
She was still getting dressed when I got there so I waited for her in the car. To pass the time, I did what I do best : take pictures of myself XD
O hai there~
I know some people think it’s improper to wear white to someone else’s wedding, but that was the color theme the couple chose
(There’s loads more where this came from, but I’ll just leave you guys with these three for now)
Some pictures taken at the church:
Sir Romar, Joybel and Kat
The soon to be newly-weds : Jik and Hahriz
More Physics people
Soon it was time for the entourage to come in:
The groom with his parents
Kuya Rowel and his partner
Amie and her partner
Dr. Albao and his partner
Sir Nel and Ma’am Rose
Dr. Sarmago and his partner
Dr. Sison and his partner
And of course, the bride:
I loved her dress~
After the ceremony was over, we took more pictures at the church
Amie and Jason. (Ex-couple? XD)
Amie and me. We very rarely see her in a dress, so we jumped on this chance to take pictures with her
The bride resting for a bit between photos
Physics (and Chem?) people
Kuya Felix attended the wedding with his girlfriend. We used to be room-mates at the Physics Division when I first started working there. It was nice to see him again.
Look how cute the bridal car is
I was told that the plate read “Sandy and Darwin” before the wedding.
The reception was held at the Bulwagang Sarimanok (National Art Center Clubhouse) – that’s actually where I had my debut years ago.
Here come the newlyweds:
For the bouquet toss, the couple decided to do something different. Instead of tossing the bouquet and having the girls catch it, we were told to grab the ribbons and pull. The girl with the longest (or was it shortest?) ribbon wins. I think this was a great idea because I know a lot of girls who are too shy to grab the bouquet.
My ribbon 😀
The boys did something different too. Instead of catching the bride’s garter, they were asked to blow some balloons. The hosts didn’t tell them if it was a battle between the biggest or smallest balloon until after the allotted time to be fair.
In the end they went with the biggest balloon and Kuya Felix won 😀
After the games we listened to some inspirational talks from friends and family:
Then came the bride and groom’s first dance as a married couple:
They also performed a song for us which they wrote. Kuya Darwin played the guitar while Alex sang.
To end this entry, here are some more pictures of the Physics Division people. It was raining *really* hard after the reception, so we decided to take pictures while waiting for it to subside. (The following photos were stolen from Jason’s Facebook XD)
Congratulations Alex and Kuya Darwin!
