What It Means to Love

7 billion people living in this world and I am so blessed because I have found the pair of hands that perfectly fits in the spaces of mine. I was a man looking for someone to get through the nights of longingness to hold, to kiss and to love.

Until, you, my love, came in to my life. God heard my prayers and answered it, then He gave me you.

When you walk down the aisle with your dad, wearing that stunning wedding dress with your very beautiful smile, I saw nothing more than seeing my future with you, Lane.

And I whispered to myself, I am blessed because of you. In front of our families and friends and God as our witness of our love, I declare my love for you.

I vow that I will always be at your side, to laugh with you in the brightest of days, and to cry with you in the darkest days of what is yet to give to us from this universe.

I vow that I will accept any flaw that you have, because when I marry you I’m accepting who you are and who you are not.

I vow to always make you smile, to remind you always that you are everything that I want. And I want to give everything to you, because you have given me everything that you are.

I am excited to share this chapter with you, thinking about how thankful I am that your family and mine has entrusted us with each other. I am grateful for everyone who cheered and greeted us with luck as we walk towards our new life as husband and wife.

It was a day for us to celebrate the love that we have shared to our loved ones and closest of friends. I love you, Lane. I want nothing more than to give my very best in every second of my life as your husband. Love, Brett.

Love Above All Circumstances

As soon as I prepare myself for the wedding, I just can’t help myself but to smile of everything that is happening. Thinking back few years ago, I never thought that this day would come. But I believe that what’s constant in life is change and this is the change I’m ultimately happy with.

Just like any circumstances given to us by life, I am ready to face this phase head-on. I am confident. Because I know that I have someone who I can depend on; my love of my life, my husband, Jonathan George.

In life, there’s no particular insights about what’s going to happen. But it’s within ourselves to choose and decide on how we enjoy our journey and overcome challenges. One reason I am fearless is because I know I’m marrying someone who has deep faith in God. That’s all that matters. Bonus points goes to his charm and handsomeness.

And the journey was made easier with our family and friends by our side.

We choose to say “I do” at Arumdaun Presbyterian Church, New York because it is where my heart felt at ease. It is but right to say our vows in front of God who made everything possible.

My excitement grew more as I saw my loved ones with ecstatic expressions plastered on their faces. They were happy because I AM HAPPY. Everything was so special; the ceremony, the place, the people and just everything. This day may be typical to other people but for me, this is the best.

We proceeded to the reception area at East Wind Long Island with enormous smiles on our faces. Greeted by our family and friends, we continued to celebrate. Everything went smoothly according to plan and without a doubt, it will continue to flow that way because we entrust our lives to Him. Our love for Him will never fail, and His love for us will never fade.

Loving above all circumstances, Maryanne Joshua

Contentment, an Ingredient for Marriage

Contentment is one of the most important thing when it comes to marriage. It is not only being satisfied but it is the feeling of overjoy and safety with the one you are committing your whole life with. It is said that when you see this feeling through the eyes of a man and a woman, they are meant to be.

Claudia and Jeffrey’s wedding was held at The Atlantica Yacht, Chelsea Piers, New York. The location itself is satisfying especially it gives you a view of the Statue of Liberty; perfect for a special event like Claudia and Jeffrey’s wedding.

Their wedding was simple yet classy complemented by the black and white attire of the guests as well as the bride and groom. Orchids were used instead of the usual flowers such as roses and tulips which adds up to the magnificence of the wedding.

As the wedding commence, emotions start to rise. The scene was truly heart-warming, causing tears of pure bliss. Every person was moved. This marks as the last day of the bride and groom’s own selves and the first day to make their own as couple.

The reception screams sophistication. Every detail, from the chairs, table settings, up to the lighting, was arranged into perfection. It was indeed a very exhausting day but the energy of the crowd was consistent. Everyone was dancing and cheering as they rejoice for the union of two hearts beating as one.

The celebration was overwhelming. Satisfied looks from the crowd indicates that every bits of hard work, money, efforts, and time spent preparing are well paid off. Without a doubt, Claudia and Jeffrey’s wedding was a memorable one. It is an example of contentment of two lovers towards each other that lead to marriage. It doesn’t need to be extravagant nor should have a large crowd for it to be meaningful. It just needs to be made out of love.


A Deeply Rooted Love

Diana & Jason’s wedding had a backyard kind of wedding theme. With the ceremony happening outside, the white bleachers and just the right amount of flowers used as decorations made it look like a no stress wedding ceremony. Scarsdale Woman’s Club, Rowsley Estate was just the right place for that kind of vibe. The vibe was definitely a breath of fresh new air.

The reception happened indoor. With a minimalist kind of venue, it was so just so lively and fun. Everyone was smiling, laughing and moving on that dance floor.

Their family and friend definitely knew how to had fun, which is really important. The couple wasn’t after glamming up their wedding ceremony and reception venue. They were more focused on being in the moment during that day which was more than evident on how they can’t keep their eyes off each other.

Aside from the couple’s non-stop display of affection, one thing that really caught our attention is this huge tree that was at the back of the couple while they were getting married. It was so perfectly situated that it felt surreal. It was like a symbol of a deeply rooted love that the couple will forever have.

Consider having something as a symbol for your wedding day. It is something that would make you remember your wedding day over and over again. Like Diana & Jason’s wedding, they will definitely remember the day that they got married every time that they will see that tree. It will serve as a memento of their love for each other which they can go back to every now and then.

You too can have something like that. It can be on various forms. May it be an architecture, a landmark or in this case, a deeply rooted tree to symbolize your love for each other.

Better Together in a Beach Wedding

Many young girls have been dreaming of having their wedding be held in a beach. It’s like if ever there was a fairy tale by the sea, a Beach Wedding would be it. Without a doubt, Emily & JT’s wedding in Crescent Beach Club, Bayville, New York is one fairy tale by the sea indeed.

One huge advantage of having your wedding in a beach setup is the instant atmosphere and exquisite look that beaches provide. Even the most lavishly decorated venue will not have a match to a warm, welcoming view of a beach wedding like Emily & JT’s.

The solitude feels of the location provide intimate moments and privacy for the couple and for their family which gives them a reason to spend more time which each other. True enough, Emily & JT created a shared experience for everyone at their memorable wedding.

Emily wore a classic white ballgown wedding dress, with her hair laid out fixed with curls. It matches her groom, JT, who wears navy blue tuxedo and white linen polo shirt. A perfect combination of colors that blended well to the ambiance of the place.

Emily & JT’s wedding is a break-away from the traditional church wedding where added their own personal touch and funk to the event. Happiness overflowed all throughout that day as they celebrate the joining of two hearts.

John couldn’t help not to hide his euphoric feelings as he lifts his fist while kissing Emily. Beach balls were being thrown in the air as everyone cheers for the newlyweds in their first steps towards their new chapter of love.

Complementing the theme, the reception in the Crescent Beach Club was of colors white and blue from lighting, table setting to the cake. A view that gave a pleasant vibe as they continue celebrating the night.

One thing is for sure that their love for each other is as big and as wide as the ocean; a love that has made them inseparable just like the waves kisses the sea shores.
