A friend gets wed

Allan has been a friend of ours for several years now. He was one of the major sponsors during our wedding and we got him as one of Gabbie’s godfathers. Last Sunday (Jan. 30, 2011), he and wife Kristine exchanged vows in a very solemn ceremony on top of the hills in Calaruega, Batangas. Few days before their big day, Allan sent a message that their reception emcee backed out and he was asking if I could do it instead. Without hesitation, I said yes. Because he is a dear friend and I don’t want them to be stressed (the bride is two months on the way) on the last leg of their wedding preps.

With me doing the impromptu hosting was JM.

Albeit we lack preparations and practice and experience, I think JM and I did well. It was my first time to host a wedding reception and it felt great. The things you do for a friend.

JM got a cash prize for joining the garter toss. And me, Gabbie and Mike got a free overnight accommodation at MC Mountains Hotel. Not bad 🙂

Congratulations and best wishes to Allan and Kristine.
