Wedding Bells: Kris & Mark

My brother made it to the wedding…

October 11th, 2005

You can see more pictures from the wedding, the bridal shower, the rehersal dinner, the engagement party in Vegas and more wedding related stuff on our Flickr Wedding site.

David made it to the wedding!

David’s in Kuwait and he reports his unit will be moving to Iraq soon. My family prays for him. My husband and I were thrilled David could make it to the wedding. His high school buddies drove him to the church.

Surrounded by friends and family

October 9th, 2005

We have more pictures posted on our Flickr Wedding site.

Surrounded by friends and family

We loved being surrounded by our family and friends on this day. People came from all over the country – Northern Cal, San Diego, the East Coast….we even had my aunt come in from the Philippines.

On our way to the party…

On our way to the party...

After our photo session at the church, We hopped in Auntie Evelyn’s car. Missy and crew decorated the car with some sweet wedding decorations. Kaine drove the car. Strangers honked at us on the freeway. We felt giddy about the whole thing.

Another look at the wedding…

October 7th, 2005

Andrea posted some pix of the wedding on her site.

She slept over at my parent’s house…keeping me company on my last night as a single woman. We didn’t do the typical “night-before-the-wedding” activities…like strip clubs, night clubs, bars and stuff like that. Our rehersal dinner at the bowling alley ran a bit late…and Andrea was pooped from the plan ride.

So I did my thing. I blogged. It’s what I do.

Oh yes….not only can you re-live the wedding through pictures….I also created a podcast. It features music from the ceremony and the reception. So, you can download the feed from that site…or click on this link for the mp3 file.

Smile for the camera

September 28th, 2005

It’s been a joy to look through all these pictures from our photographer. I showed parents a musical slideshow through iTunes. I’ll probably make a slideshow movie for the blog….eventually. This entry has a sampling of shots from before the ceremony. You can see more pictures at our new wedding pix site on flickr. Heck, there’s only so many meg’s this blog can take before my ISP shuts me down. So, I went through Flickr to host the rest of the pictures.

So…I think our photographer had time to take some nice pix since the bride’s side was running a little late. Devon, our flowergirl, looks lovely by the fountain.


Pictures from our photographer

September 28th, 2005

We met with our photographer this evening. He gave us a DVD filled with all our wedding pix. We look so pretty! He has this super-cool 8 megapixel camera…so, it will take me some time to few them all and convert them for the blog….

Today is our one month anniversary of being married. It rocks!

Hanging out before the ceremony

September 20th, 2005

Mark looks so classy in his Tux! Our florist assured us the flower arrangements for the men would be a “manly” arrangement. Buds and Blossoms did an awesome job with our flowers. We carried them over to the reception site after the wedding.

Here’s Mark’s dad, Mike, and his best man, Kaine.


Beauty session at the crack of dawn

September 19th, 2005

Thank you to everyone who woke up before the crack of dawn on my wedding day. I’m so sorry about the early morning call-time but I think it was worth it!

Special thanks to Jennie’s parents, my Ninang Nora and my Ninony Perry! Thanks so much for letting us use your house to get ready for the ceremony. Thank you for the breakfast and thank you for the coffee. I had the sniffles before the ceremony, so thanks for the Advil pill. It wouldn’t have been pretty if my nose was running while Monsignor took us through our vows.

Here’s she is – Miss America! Jennie looked beautiful in this bridesmaid dress from David’s Bridal. In retrospect, I’m glad she called me up on the day she was trying the dresses on. It gave me the chance to look-up the style numbers on their website and visualize how she would look.

Sharon Tabb and her assistant took care of the hair stylings for my bridesmaids. She also worked on hair and make-up for my mother and me.


Louie and Andre on Our Wedding Day

September 11th, 2005

Well, since my bridesmaids and I were busy getting beautiful on the Big Day – my London-partner-in-crime, Andrea, took over photography duties for the bears.

‘Cause it would seem odd if Louie and Andre didn’t get to see the Wedding, don’t you think? Here they are….in their own words…God help us.

Louie – It’s the crack of dawn and Mommy demands all her girls show up to Ninang Nora’s house for their beauty session. Louie thinks waking up early sucks. Louie demands a cup of coffee for his trouble. Early morning wake-up calls interfere with my beauty sleep. Can you see the bags under my eyes? Can you?

Andre – Mommy’s worried about Mark and his family making it to the church. Andre dials up Markie to see where he is. It’s hard for Andre to make the call. Stubby Paws. Stubby Paws. So, Susan calls up Markie instead.


Pix from My Uncle Truck

He took some great shots of the wedding.

Here’s the Kodak Album.
