"Walk hand in hand with me through all eternity/ Have faith, believe in me, give me your hand/ Love is a symphony of perfect harmony/ When lovers such as we walk hand in hand.. This is our DESTINY..."
Reverend Father Mitchelle Guadalupe who solemnized the marriage inspired the would-be couple of his practical bits of advice in making their married life enjoyable, enduring, and avoiding possible break-up. Even the whole congregation and the principal sponsors did absorb the said down-to-earth counsel.
The Traditional Wedding Practice
After a sumptuous wedding dinner at La Planta Hotel, Bacolod, the couple took center at the reception hall to dance. While they're dancing concerned and thoughtful sponsors, relatives and friends gave some pieces of monetary gifts in various denominations by pinning them to the skirt of the bride and to the sleeves of the groom.
The nuptial ceremonial toss of wine, slicing of the wedding cake and feeding each other, and other after-wedding games ensued and everyone enjoyed.
To the newly-wed, as one of the principal sponsors, I would advise both of you "to love one another and do not love another one..."
Their Theme Song
By the way, the groom was my grade six pupil in 1999 at La Carlota South Elem. School 1. He's a good, diligent pupil. He could be best trusted in any school work and assignment given me.
In their sweet and courting days, they're inspired and made alive by their sweet theme song, "Destiny" popularized by Jim Brickman. Here's a portion of it:
"Baby you're my destiny
You and I were meant to be
With all my heart and soul
I give my love to have and hold
And as far as I can see
You were always meant to be
"I wanted someone like you
Someone that I could hold on to
And give my love until the end of time
But forever was just a word
Something I'd only heard about
But now you're always there for me
When you say forever I believe..."
