My number one fear for this day: the ceremony starting late.
But luckily everything went right on schedule! We had a FULL-ON TRADITIONAL FILIPINO CATHOLIC wedding. Yup, with the ninongs and ninangs, candle, veil, and cord sponsors, ring and coin bearer, etc. Kulang nalang mag-barong yung mga lalaki.
Here are the guests filing in.
In the processional line – my adorable cousins all the way from the Philippines.
My DIY ceremony booklet – bilingual English and French (French on the other side)!
Waiting in the car. What a relief when the photographer said that everyone was well organized and early.
And we begin!
