Finally! Kris and Philip tied the knot. I think they've been together longer than Mike and me...
The wedding was beautiful and we were so honored to be a part of their special day. When Kris asked me months ago if Mike and I would tie a rope around their necks during the ceremony, I thought she was joking.... It's like her to say something like that. I just said, sure.
The wedding was Catholic with Filipino customs and Mike and I were the cord sponsors, which meant we tied a rope around their necks during the ceremony. Actually, it was more like laying it on their shoulders, as a symbol of unity, but we did tell Kris to give us a signal if she wanted us to pull a little tighter on Philip's side. (We would have considered it payback for the snoring in Charleston SC, but that's another story....)
They are such dear friends to us and I'm so sad that we live so far away.
Anyway, I snapped this shot of Philip just as the doors to the church opened and he got the first glimpse of his bride... So sweet.
Speaking of sweet, check out Miss Julia. She was a dancing fool, and quite a hit in her black and white polka dots. And yes, that's Ella on the dance floor...
And I'm glad to report that the plane trips to and from WV were smooth for everyone. Julia is already a much better flyer than her mama. The secret: Elmo DVDs.
A perk of our trip was going to Huntington to see my college roomie. Look at my hot mama best friend Tara who can hold two babies. That's right, two. Count them. She rocks.
And all this wedding talk has made me reminisce about mine. So here are a few pics from that fateful day in June 04.
