♫... Love and Marriage, Love and Marriage....♫

My husband's older brother got married yesterday at his church or congregation I may say called Center for Spiritual Living.It is the most interesting wedding ceremony I've seen so far and I wish to be invited to another unique,fun yet romantic wedding like this someday. The ceremony started with a song by the band called, ♫ Love and Marriage ♫ by Frank Sinatra.And they asked everyone,all the guests to sing along. The bride walked down the isle while the band sings ♫ " At Last " ♫ by Etta James,it was beautiful. My favorite part,actually I have two favorite parts in the ceremony first was when the person who officiated the wedding,don't know if they call him Pastor there, read the love letters the bride and groom wrote for each other. I was getting a little weepy but I remember I used not a water proof mascara. So I tried so hard not to cry but if you know me you know I did anyway, found my self reaching for the kleenex box the church provided below the chairs.Thank goodness! I love most of all the brides love letter to the groom, so full of respect and love towards her groom. My second favorite part was when the pastor or however they call him, gave the newly weds each roses and explained what it symbolizes. He said we all have moments of being married where we said things we didn't mean to each other and words meant to be spoken yet so hard to say. If that happens make sure you have an empty vase in your house so if moments like this happen who ever said something he/she is not supposed to say,or he/she can't say what they both need to and have to say to each other should put a single rose on the empty vase to remind them of how their vows,their marriage should come first in spite of everything.The bride and groom walked out of the church to Queen's ♫ Another One Bites The Dust ♫.

That is one adorable cake- simple it is but it tasted so gooood!

It is not just a wedding but a Family reunion for my husband's family.It's been years that all the siblings are together in a family gathering like this. This is also My first time to meet three of D's siblings Marianne,Suzie and Paul. Since I am away from home and D too,we never have relatives that live close by. I am excited more for my kids to meet their dada's siblings,they live back East closer to where my In-laws live. And I would also love them to meet their cousins someday. Saturday I met Marianne,I talked to her on the phone before and I knew then I am and my girls are going to love her. And I am right,She is such a sweetheart just like what my mother in law said she'll be. Now I wish she lives close by. Yesterday I met Suzie and Paul and His wife Mary Margarette for the first time. Never really had a chance to talk to them both. But I'm sure I'm going to love them too.

I am sure that Mom and Dad are the happiest they got to see their kids together again after so many years. I am overwhelmed myself, made me miss my siblings back in the Philippines,I haven't seen them in six years. So happy for their parents caused like what mom said it may never happen again or who knows when?

I would like to end this post by sharing with you the song they played in the ceremony,Dave (The Groom) played the piano and the singer is so amazing. I just ran out of space from my memory card so I didn't record it but I'm glad I found this on YouTube. I first heard this song just yesterday,can't believe I haven't heard this song. Yes,I fell in love!
