second chance…

For the past 4 weeks we received so many wedding invitation and there is a wedding in every Saturday of this month. Even though I want to be in all the wedding, but I have to waved 2 weddings for good reason, my husband attend one on his own. I do love wedding, especially when I know the person very closed. I like it because it’s the time for love turn into a commitment.

On October first, I attended an old friend wedding. I haven’t meet her about 20 years or so. That’s why I was so curious about how she look now, how her family doing, and what the story between her and the guy she’s marrying. I was late, but the ceremony just started. I only see her back till later when she faced the audience. She’s so beautiful in her beige wedding dress. Long hair, low neck line showed her full figure. Her husband is a western guy, quite handsome and have a son from his previous married. I especially love the choir that sang some wedding songs. It really made the event lovely. We took some pictures in front of the church while exchange some information with the sisters of the brides.

Last week I was not only attend a wedding, but I was also on duty as a photographer while my husband do the MC. This wedding is rather special because is not just a wedding but 2 weddings happen in one place. The first one is the son’s wedding, and the next one right after that is the father’s. The son is the child from the first wife, then the father got remarried and have 2 other kids. The son also got married and have a son on his own. Sounds a bit complicated indeed but both of them never actually blessed in the Church. So this is a very special event for the whole family, and as I took pictures here I stand there and amazed how God works within this family.

Another wedding will happen this coming weekend. Last night we went to visit the venue. It was a small traditional restaurant outskirt of the city. My husband and I become the person in charge of the wedding and we want to make sure of everything. After talked about the decoration, the programme, the setting, the food, we’re doing the rehearseal to get everybody ready for the big event this weekend. It’s also weird because we just know these people for about 2 weeks, but we become so close to them. The Groom has 2 teenager kids, but I really appreciate the bride because she accept him, love his children, even win their heart. I can imagine how lovely the wedding is going to be, really hope it won’t be rain that evening.

Probably you can tell the similarity of these weddings. All of the groom were married before. I don’t know the detail story either divorce or a widower but I think people want to have a second chance. They want to continue life with someone they love, and i am happy for them. I really hope they will learn from their mistake, and make this one a better and lasting one.


what i love and hate about my wedding…

What i hate don’t really like were……….

1. The song for my entrance in the church was different from the one I was plan. (the one I was talking about yesterday)

2. Not all of my bride’s maid were my best friend. (there was special arrangement with my in-law)

3. The Pastor read the scripture from the Bible and replace the characters with our names. (i found this irritating, sorry!)

4. Didn’t get a change to take picture in front of the church after the ceremony. (no..comment!)

5. The make up artist retouch my make up but it make me look “too much” (menor…banget!)

6. The wedding cake was too tall till it reached the ceiling of the building. (or maybe the ceiling was too low?)

7. My husband sang me our song “how Do I live without you”, but the note was too high that he squeaked in one part of the song. (anyway, thanks for trying hon!)

8. The music was just a man play an organ. (the worse thing was toward the end the organ is broken)

9. The decoration was old fashion, with plastic flower. (blaaah)

10. Why did my family wear black on my wedding? (they didn’t confirm with me…)

what i love were…………..

1. Yudi was on time when come to pick me up. (where that “on time” go right now? ha…ha…ha)

2. My make up for the church was really nice. (Queen for a day)

3. My mom and dad sang with their choir for me. (they always give.. and give)

4. He dared to kiss me on the lips. (I was flying…..)

5. My hand bouquet and the decoration in the church were using my favorite flower. (I luv Sunflower)

6. My best friend Abby came all the way from the US to attended my wedding. (the best present!)

7. My brother Pierre sang a song he wrote special for me. (thanks bro!)

8. People said the food were great. (I didn’t get a chance to eat)

9. I got to dance “poco-poco” with the group.. (balenggang pata-pata, ngana pe goyang pica-pica…)

10. The first night was in the Borubudur Hotel, a compliment from Om Agus, my dad’s best friend (what a night!)

If you have a “perfect” wedding, lucky you, but if you don’t, just focus on the bright side!
