Here Comes The Bride

Raft3r never liked weddings.

That's already a given, right?

So when a friend of mine got hitched a few weeks back, I did not want to attend.

But I'm sure glad I did. Not only was it a chance to wear my Calvin Klein suit, the event turned out to be a fun wedding.

The happy couple danced to Usher's OMG while the bridal entourage strutted their stuff on the red carpet. The celebration was a bit unconventional until the parents did their obligatory remarks.

Despite the bride's numerous accomplishments, my friend's only goal in life was to be married and raise a family. She even has a life book to attest to this fact.

Now that she had her civil status changed, what is left for her to do?

Plenty, I say. Methinks she is ready to put a new spin on domestic life.

Being friends with her is a good balancing act. Her positive vibe on relationships is the perfect antithesis to my unwillingless to commit.

Taking a cue from her wedding vow, here's hoping that Raft3r could be someone's hearthrob - forever.

Cheers to the newly weds!

Raft3r,

Weddings talaga. They never fail to stir something in all of us.

I guess it does resonate in us; this kind of togetherness.

It's a lovely story for a weekend.

I also just attended a wedding where the male entourage danced, but that was while they were walking (and dancing) on their way to the front when they were introduced during reception. It was fun, but I was thankful I was not one of them. Hahaha.

Great post!

Attending that wedding left me thinking that it is actually possible for two people to still be "in love" with each other after knowing each other for a really, really long time...can't wait to see what happens next to our dear friend...
