The bride, matron of honor, and the bridesmaids...oops! Wrong wedding! Hinahanap pa ang groom. (Moi, Tito Mon--wedding coordinator extraordinaire, Erik, Jun)
The real bride and groom--Des and Blaine (center)--with Marianne (far left) and moi. Yummy ni Papa Blaine no?
IT might as well have been called "The Wedding of the Year." And yet it was no high society affair although a number of the guests were Cabinet Secretaries, central bankers, and even a possible presidential candidate (who even came with his own photographer in tow--tacky). It was really a gathering of friends who were at the Ilustrado on July 30, to bear witness to our good friend and long-time journalism colleague Des, getting married to her cyberlove Blaine. (Who woud've thought with Des' background, she'd get married to an American? Haha!) By the way, it was also Des' birthday...so happy h-bomb!

It was a simple and intimate affair that only true friends could really appreciate. No long boring blessing ceremonies (but a very memorable intro by officiant, Bro. Diwa), short (well most of them anyway) funny accounts about the bride and groom, abundant food, great music. For those of us who were there, that wedding will be a good story to tell over and over again. Congratulations and best wishes to the couple!
Take a bow Kler and her cleavage. (And hostess with the mostest!) Na-insecure na kaya si Des? A befuddled Blaine with a 'this-people-are-weird' look. At far right, Iris, wedding coordinator assistant #1. Huy, nasaan si Fil?
