Ate Joey seems more of a cousin to me than just a "family friend". Her fam bam and my fam bam are the best fam bam pals (lol did I make sense?).
To make things simpler, Ate Joey's dad, Tito Nitoy Casillian, and my dad were the best of friends when they were still young boys.
It's so cute to see that Tito Nitoy and Dad are still doing their best to communicate and keep in touch.
You know, our families practically grew up together.
We saw each other grow up.... we encouraged one another during trials... we went on vacations and getaways together... we sang, prayed, and laughed together.
We make it a point to have a reunion at least twice every year.
So attending this wedding was a mile stone for all of us; we were there to witness Ate Joey marry the man she loves-- the man she had been waiting for all along.
Their love story is a really touching one, and I couldnt help but say 'awwww' when they said their vows to each other.
It was such a beautiful irony, how the couple seemed very relaxed and at peace, while the cold sky outside sprinkled rain and fog.
They smiled big smiles, and teared happy tears.
Their eyes illuminated the venue; their love gave warmth throughout the place.
Truly, God makes every wedding beautiful.
Mabuhay sina Mr. and Mrs. Grant Gomez!!
