When I first time started this blog, mainly is to share my photos with my clients and friends. I am such a terrible writer and definitely wasn't an A student in my English 1 and English 2 class, i.e. I don't like writing, :)
However, I just realized that doing wedding photography and productions, especially for the last 1 year, there are so many blessings and messages that I've received in each of the weddings that I do. I would like to thank each of my clients, who became my friends for these awesome opportunities that they gave me, validations on how I could give back to people who I met in my life with my photography talents, and also for moments in my clients' life in which they let me to experience and capture them photographically. They are just beautiful. The words, messages that I received on their wedding day from the pastors, grooms, brides or parents and friends, they touch me. However, over the time, ... I forgot. Therefore, I made a commitment, to post few words, messages or blessings that I received for each month from the weddings that I did, starting this August, 2008.
August 2008, the messages that touched me this month is that, some people might have one or more boyfriends/girlfriends in the past, but they will always be just a "boy". It takes a man and not a boy to be able to stand in front of a woman and commit a life time commitment. The thing that we call: marriage. It's not how beautiful and how glamorous the wedding day is, but it's about standing up and declaring your promises in front of your parents and friends, that this is the one! This is it! It's a declaration that you're willing to start a new life together, sharing your life as husband and wife, in whatever the future holds for the two. This is the true meaning of marriage. One's wedding day is just a day. But, what happened the next day and the next one and the next one and so on is the marriage. It's a lifetime journey. I went to so many weddings that the brides or the grooms are so worry about the wedding day, their appearances, the weather, what if things go wrong, etc. One particular wedding that I experienced this month, the groom stroke me with what he said: "Whatever happened tomorrow (his wedding day), it's still a beautiful day."
I'm speechless. It's beautiful.
