At the Beginning
I love weddings. And this year, i've been invited to seven weddings. Send me an invite to yours, and you know I will show up. And though destination weddings are pretty difficult to get to (especially if it's some island in the Philippines), I happily oblige because it's a wedding, guys!
I love love and support love and all expressions of it and the wedding is just the ultimate/pinnacle of this. Ok, so clearly, my romantic side is coming out.
Anyway, this wedding was care of Marla and Anton, friends/former colleagues from my 4-year-long job at Summit Media and it was so lovely to see friends and old colleagues and hang out for a little over 24 hours together in Sorsogon. I had never been to Sorsogon and though I only saw our hotel -- it was a gem. Siama Hotel is definitely a hotel I'd love to go back to when I have more time.
But clearly, the company was amazing! One of the brands I handled at work in Manila was Candy and I lovingly refer to my colleagues-turned-SUPER-CLOSE-friends there the Candy Girls. Marla is the fourth wedding I've been to in this group of friends and it was just as lovely as the first three. It's always so nice to see one of your really good friends marry the love of her life.
And because the venue was so damn picturesque, any good Instagram Girlfriend knows that friends must take photos of friends. I happily obliged.
Two down, five more to go. I can't wait till the next ones. Seriously, send me an invite. I'm there.
