Lau + Dave

Faith, service, duty, honor, courage... These are a few of the many words one would associate to a man of service.  How fitting also, that these are the same words one would think of going into marriage.

As a spectator to this event marking the start of the rest of their lives, I can't help but feel a bit of pride (though vicariously) in knowing that someone who committed his life to serve and protect found someone to be his light, his joy and his peace.  One could really see the depth of Dave's love as he would watch Lau laugh, talk to him and to others animatedly, or when she would just contentedly smile at him.

But enough about how I felt looking at these two, I'll just let you see for yourselves what I mean.

I can relate better to couples now about their wedding planning highs and woes, now as I prepare for my own wedding. So much thought goes into it when you see what wonderful things others have done, and the more features you see on the Internet. My bride, like many, is hooked on Pinterest while I, like many grooms, wonder how much impact these things will have on our budget. ;)

But then comes a wedding that reminded us both of an important truth: a wedding, though the most special day of one's life, does not necessarily have to be a spectacle of an event. It's a beautiful and solemn ritual that brings a man and a woman together making them, their lives, and their families one. And that's all you need, everything else are cherries on the wonderful slice of the rest of your life.

Migo and Monica's wedding was just that: solemn and beautiful. Surrounded by family, blanketed with love, filled with so much joy, and sealed with a vow.
