Our family has been blessed with talented members –not only very good singers, but amazing artists too (in variety of aspects), and I have always been proud of that. One example is a masterpiece offered by my super talented niece, Camille Lim Pelingon, a.k.a. Chinchin – a painting of hubby and me. I just hoped everybody had a chance to take a glimpse of it in the reception venue. Maraming salamat sa napakaganda mong painting chinchin – este camille. We owe you one chin!
When my newly wed cousin-in-law called me weeks before the wedding, I expected her to ask about my preparations and would wish me luck. I was right. She did those… and more. To my surprise, she volunteered to make our wedding missallettes. Being a self-reliant person that I am, and shy (yes, I am), I tried to refuse at first but with her insistence (super! and I loved her for that) I agreed. The misallettes were very simple (like us) with a tinge of ‘chick’ness (like her hehe) and was much more (in number) than expected.
Thank you so much cousin emma (Wilson-Sumugat)!
The Transportation Services
We are lucky to have belonged to families (both sides) and closest friends with inherent kindness and generosity which helped us a lot during the day. Without hesitation, my brother(Jor), our principal sponsors (which were also my baptismal godparents)-ninong William and ninang Bing, uncles, aunts, cousins and closest relatives had been of loving help to us by offering and allowing our family members to take a ride on their private/personal vehicles during the day. How blessed we are too.
Thank you also to our friends who were very resourceful to avail of a ‘service’/who accommodated each other in their respective vehicles just to share our special day with us inspite of our long-distant venues.
We are wholeheartedly grateful for every family member and dearest friends from the province who attended our wedding day. They lovingly volunteered to pay travel expenses to spare us from further burden. Those were more than wedding gifts to us, YOU are our blessings.
There had been a lot of D.I.Y.s and L.O.s throughout the whole preparation and the wedding day itself but I could not mention all. We’re just immensely grateful for every one who had helped us in one way or another. Salamat, Salamat, Salamat!
For all these, our endless thankfulness to you all!
