EMANEL - LEE (May 10, 2008)

No fuss. That's the best phrase to describe the couple. We only met thrice in a span of several months and the third meeting was on their wedding day. The weather cleared the night before in time for this wedding and despite the muddy grounds the ceremony went on without hitches of any kind. There's a lesson to be learned from this wedding. If we really unbundle all the things that go into an event like this, we'd be able to realize how much of it are actually non-essential. We may have the tendency to be too obsessed with details, worry about what our guests might think and say, expend too much energy into things that we can actually strike out of a seemingly interminable check list. Let us not be distracted from the real purpose of weddings.

I was able to piggyback on Jun Valbuena's stint and captured the couple posing with their rings. Cute!

The couple give honor to their parents towards the end of the ceremony.

Very happy to see it end well. The staff were at the Farm at 6AM. We ourselves were at the Farm at 5AM (the wedding was at 9). This is a good thing because on June 8, the wedding would be at 6AM (our first sunrise event) and dragging ourselves out of bed would be a challenge, no doubt. Anyway, we thank the Emanels for being so appreciative of our efforts. Thank you so much as well for making us a part of this special day. :-)

And here's my favorite quotation about weddings: "There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends." - Homer
