Beautiful Sunday # 21 - Happily Ever After

When I was still pursuing my MBA, it has become a routine for me and my girlfriends to hear masses at the elegant and historic San Agustin Church. Before hearing the mass, we would often catch the recessional of an earlier wedding. We would hide in one corner and admire every beautiful and happy bride, as she walks out of the church with her equally fulfilled groom. Every Saturday, we would always render that huge sigh and laugh about our own frustrations. On those days, one of my fervent wishes was for that someone-that-i-used-to-know to love me back. My two girlfriends have their own wishes. However, I'm pretty sure that their prayers are way different and mature than my selfish intentions.

Five years after, God has granted some prayers. However, I have this feeling that God misheard our prayers. My wish for that one great love ended up in the hands of my two girlfriends. Haha As it turns out, my girlfriends and constant Saturday companions found their own destinies. 

My friend Lani is engaged and will tie the knot next year. Joy, the elder sister that I should have, officially left singlehood today. Ate Joy found her lifelong happiness with Vel. The 15th day of September will forever be significant to Ate Joy and Vel because they chose to profess their love and commitment to each other. 

Who would ever thought that the historic San Agustin Church would soon belong to Ate Joy's wedding.

Ate Joy and her parents.

At this point, I'm the only one left rendering that huge sigh. LOL 

Best wishes to our Ate Joy!

I would love to read your beautiful posts too. 


  1. I always cry sa weddings, iba yung emotions sa church, ung happiness ng bride at groom. Your groom-to-be will find you soon, enjoy everything what you have now, kasi pag married na you will miss lahat ng ginagawa mo nung single pa. Happy Sunday!!! God bless. =)

  2. Aw! What a lovely couple and beautiful wedding. This is the perfect post for Beautiful Sunday!

    One thing I know to be true is that God answers prayer. :D

    Enjoy your SUnday, and thanks for hosting!

  3. Wow. Beautiful. :)

    I always tell my friends I just want a civil wedding in a yacht, or garden, or beach. I don't want to get married in a church. But if ever church, it has to be San Agustin. There's something about this church that's really fascinating.

    Pero tsaka ko na iisipin yan, groom muna. Hahaha

  4. What a fabulous wedding! The church is magnificent and I sure like that the bride's parents both walked her down the aisle. The bride is very beautiful...everything is gorgeous!

  5. in my twenty years, i havent attended a wedding EVER. ^___^ i was having this sort of romantic delusion that mine wud be my first. ^__^

  6. I love to see wedding pictures. Love her dress and the doves. Thanks for sharing this. It's beautiful.

  7. What an amazing wedding and beautiful bride! I love that both her parents walked her down the aisle. The church is a magnificent backdrop to this momentous event! Like Ricki I do believe that God (or in my case the Universe) answers prayers. But sometimes the prayer is answered in a different way than you expect. Have faith and all will be well.

  8. Dear Diane,

    I have missing out a lot on your blog lately! I've been a little busy with the extra um... work I've been taking but I have a few hours tonight to catch up on what's up with you.

    Anyway, don't worry, I will pray that your one true love will find his way to you soon ;)
