B & Francisco’s It’s Friday I’m In Love Wedding

FRANCIS + BEVERLY WEDDING PHOTOS-2243

Today is special, really special. Exactly a year ago, in front of our family and friends, my husband Francis and I vowed to love each other forever. I can still vividly recall that day. It was a Friday – a glorious early Friday morning, to be exact. And we made all our guests take a leave from work (or school), wake up really early to attend our wedding. Oh, they must love us so!

I remember my bridal car carefully approaching the church and I saw each one of those familiar faces, all up and giddy on that early Friday morning. We must be so weirdly crazy to make them to do that, and I was just so happy that they came. It was an intimate affair, attended by only 75 guests, and coordinated by family and friends.

There were so many things I recall that day – too many precious snippets of memories – but if there’s one memory I would forever cherish, it is this: I started approaching the church doors, walked my way to the aisle, and for the first time, saw my groom. It is as if for one quick second, time froze. This is it, I thought, this is it. I’m marrying the love of my life. My best friend. My English Breakfast Tea latte co-drinker. My forever movie date. My lobster. My Puso.

It was our Day 1… and we have forever to go.

Happy 1st Anniversary, Francisco! ♥ ♥ ♥ See you later! ♥

And because I’m uber happy today, I’m sharing with all of you our sweet, sweet memories from a year ago. 🙂 Cheers!

Our wedding was vintage inspired – and what perfect way to uphold this than holding our ceremony in a 300-year old church and our reception right in the church courtyard. Don’t ask me what exactly our wedding theme was, I’m really quite unsure myself. Ha! 🙂 I just knew what elements I wanted to see, and that’s how we decorated the place. We used old family treasures (vintage vinyl record, old typewriter, old books from the family library, etc.) as decors in the reception.

Our wedding was a true product of “labor of love” not just because of the DIYs (it took me 3 months – and a number of You Tube tutorials on wire looping – to finish our rosary wedding cord!), but also because the entire wedding preparation was a family group effort (we didn’t have a coordinator!). We decided we wanted to be 100% hands-on on the wedding. I would admit that it was really hard and oh-so-stressful (giving directions to the florist while getting dressed, picking up the favors a day before the wedding – we had potted herbs so had to make sure they were fresh from the supplier, staying up late at night to cut the wedding invites, etc.), but in the end, everything was worthwhile because we achieved what we wanted and how we wanted it, and everybody who helped with the wedding did what they did because they loved us. Yes, our wedding was intimate, it was simple beyond words, but it was also very heartfelt. And I think it’s all that matters. 🙂

It was a Friday. And we were (still is!) in love. Here’s the rest of our wedding! ♥

  1. Hi we’re planning to get married at that church too. 😊 And we will also get the garden as our reception venue. Do you think 150 pax will fit there?
    I have searched for weddings done at the hermano sol y hermana luna garden but just found this blog. And your wedding is really beautiful 😊

    1. Hi Jemi! Congratulations! Great choice of church. Hihi. I believe the church garden can accommodate 200 pax at maximum. 🙂
      Thank you for saying that our wedding is beautiful. I’m quite excited to see how yours will turn out. Hope you have a great time preparing for your wedding!
