Wedding: Jason + Irene

we recentlty covered a filipino wedding here in los angeles; the ceremony was held at the st joseph’s catholic church in la puente pomona, and the reception was at the los coyotes country club in buena park

while the bride’s sister was giving her customary speech ; i experienced an epiphany. i realized how privileged i was to witness a very important moment in another person’s life. being the ‘stranger’
i was privy to a person’s and another family’s traditions and idiosyncrasies;

the purpose, usually of bestman or bridesmaid speeches is to endearingly highlight either the bride or groom’s aptness to be the chosen one. the speeches are meant to be funny, poignant, as the speaker goes through the bride’s or groom’s childhood, struggles, successes, influences and the circumstances which brought the couple together;

more often than not, the bride, the mother of the bride and the majority of the women are affected by this moment. though women are generally emotional;filipino women are outrightly emotional, so its no wonder if i shed a tear or two while capturing such experience of emotional catharsis. and that’s just one reason why i love weddings.

jason and irene’s wedding was very intimate, witnessed by very close family members and friends. how can i forget the the uninhibited karaoke singing and seemingly tireless dancing to abba’s famous songs?

“you can dance, you can jive having the time of your life see that girl, watch that scene dig in the Dancing Queen“.
