It took a call from a friend to shock me to the core! The reason, she’s officially begging me to plan her wedding day, as in to plan the frenziest, happiest and biggest event of her life. Her reason : I was the one who gave Shane Marie a very emotional and dramatic wedding in Hawaii last year. I am no wedding coordinator but I am thinking of, perhaps, earning a living out of organizing weddings.
I was shocked co’z I wouldn’t be there when Shane Marie got married, however, she begged me to contribute to her wedding so I send her a compilation of “unconventional” wedding songs and convince her cousin Ken to do an animation to show people how Shane and her hubby had gone through, before everyone witnessed their avant grande wedding in Hawaii. There was a sort of film showing and an interpretative dance to the tune of “The Wedding Song” preluded the ceremony. The wedding was held at one of the fine beaches in Hawaii, but the place was adorned with a lot of flowers and plants, thus, making it a beach cum garden wedding. She wore a Grecian or Emprire cut gown devoid of any lace nor ribbon to give her a “natural” look ala fairy or Greek Goddess. All these were input from an impeccable and creative person — ako yun!
When I was sent a copy of the wedding coverage, I really couldn’t help but cry at the beauty of the ceremony, but more than that, mas na-touch ako ‘coz I know the story behind that beautiful, dramatic and emotional wedding. Kung ano talga ang pinagdaanan nila just to be in each other’s arms again and live “happily ever after”.
Kaya nga ‘tong si Tish, aba, ako daw ang mag-plano ng wedding niya. Hanggang ngayon tuloy nawiwindang ako kung paanong gagawing “unconventional” ang ceremony eh hindi ko naman kilala ‘ung magiging husband niya! Kaput! Lagot tuloy ako!
Naisip ko tuloy, paano ko kaya pa-planuhin ang mga big-events-to-be sa buhay ko? At sinu-sino ba dapat ang nandoon? Pasensiya na sa mga friends ko na nakalimutan ko…
