January 1, 2016, I said Yes!
One of the best days of my life. Woah. What’s next? The prenuptial photoshoot was a blessing to us. It’s free! Thank God for my cousin Christopher Grajo for his patience and talent. I am not really good at posing, you know? It’s not my thing. I wanted to be my thing but it doesn’t like me. I could really see my cousin during the photo shoot having a hard time for my smile and pose. HAHA! I am so sorry! But it was a great day.
Actually, this is just arte! It’s not really necessary to have this, you know. Practically, you just want to get married to your partner. That’s it! When you really look at how the world nowadays when it comes to events, it’s creative and elegant. But to be honest, I just want a simple one. I want to stay on that main reason why you’re getting married. But we are so blessed that I have a talented cousin who didn’t charge us anything. God bless him abundantly. Such a blessing!
Okay, not bad.
Thank God that I didn’t need to smile there and pose. Just stand up and hold hands. The Ring has to be seen. HAHA
Okay. For a better view:
Could you imagine how our neck is getting stiff and tired? 1…2…3 pose! click! one more, move a little, look up! His eyes are beautiful. Really! mas mahaba ang pilikmata nya.
Yeah, right. He’s tall and I am short. Perfect combination. LOL.
Ayan na ‘te! Pose na! He’s lovely, isn’t he?
What I love most when I get to hug him, I could hear his heartbeat.
And he can freely kiss me on my forehead… gentleman!
I know this is a photoshoot, scripted. But in real life, he is like that. I love it when he kisses me on my forehead. It made me feel secured and respected. I am.
Thank God for him.
For the love of nature. Vitamin SEA. We were under the sun during the photoshoot. But it’s windy…always in Aruba. 🙂
See that? Ano shampoo mo te? Rejoice ba yan? When hair covered my face, my dress filled with air. Dami ko din atang gas nyan’. Too windy. HAHA
I can’t help but smile while looking at the pictures. I’m just happy being with him. He is a blessing to me.
He carries me when I feel like falling. He encourages me to stand up strong. And helps me to see how God looks at me and reassures me that I am loved.
I know from the day we started dating, I have someone I can share my laughs and cries with. Isn’t it amazing how the Lord allowed two different people from different culture and race to meet and get to know each other and desire one thing? To LOVE GOD more than anyone else so we could love each other the right way. GOAL. Purpose.
When you love someone you always want to see that person happy, right? We hope that we will stay like this forever. May forever! Maniwala tayo!
When I think about the purpose why am I still here in Aruba, the ring will always remind me why. Him. It was the hardest decision ever to live your comfort zone to go to the unknown. When it was blurry, he showed me clearly. God sent him to me. There is a purpose I stayed. The past years, I was wrestling with God, telling him “I want to go home” (Philippines). He never answered me, I thought. I was home all this time. With GOD always by my side and with him who God sent for me to feel secure. I am home.
HOME. Where you feel safe. When you are yourself. BE silly. Freely! 🙂 Where LOVE is.
You will feel weak sometimes but you will help each other to stand up again…
Gotcha! Am I heavy? :p
REST is essential to everyone, to any relationship. To pause for a while and reflect how you guys doing. I remember one of our anniversary celebrations where we talked only about how grateful we were that the Lord answered our prayers. He prayed for someone like me and I prayed for someone like him. And how we met was truly God’s plan. In a relationship, we all argue and have misunderstandings but to pause for a while and look back on the day you first met and fell in love is also good to do. Talk about it as much as possible and be always amazed what LOVE can do. What GOD can do.
And strike a pose. Selfie? Click. HEHE Back to the ball game. Life goes on. Love always.
Are you still there? There’s more. HAHA
At this point, we got tired already but had to laugh about it. You want a prenup photoshoot, huh? HEHE… Magdusa ka! LOL
Okay. That’s it. The reason for this photoshoot… SAVE THE DATE! arte haha.
The two unggoy(s) [monkeys] are getting married. When is the BIG DAY?
“Are you ready?” I asked this question many times, I asked him too. When you say, YES, no turning back. Leaving the person behind in marriage isn’t an option at all. You will look at marriage as good thing, not a scary one. I’ve learned that. For me, who has a lot of fears, God reminds me of his Word.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18
No fear. Just LOVE. God will teach us how to love the right way if we will keep our eyes fixed on HIM. And he never fails.
Hand in hand…with JESUS and with the one He sent.
The princess found his prince. Finally!
Are you ready?
Yes! We’re ready…
Woah! Finally, I finished this post. It took me a while, well years. HAHA I got engaged, January 1, 2016. We had this photoshoot for fun and for memories. This is kinda late, but yeah! I haven’t shared my photos on my social media (Facebook, IG). I mean I have but not all. Dito lang sa blog site ko shared, first. Thank you so much for your time.
Photographer: Christopher Neil Grajo.
