Ton & Donna Wedding Reception


DSC_3237


On June 12, 2011, as the Philippines commemorates its 113th Independence Day, Anthony and Donna celebrate their wedding day.

Naturally, the theme is Filipiniana. (Doesn’t really mean the bride’s a Maria Clara. Check out her bridal shower. Smile with tongue out)



“Tayo na’t humigop ng mainit na sabaw!” I love that the invite is printed in Tagalog

And then, as with the tradition of Filipino weddings, Ton and Donna do the money dance. We pin money onto their clothes, wishing that good fortune rains upon them.
People who think the couple is already rich enough, they pin onto their clothes pastillas, polvoron, etc, etc.
