JR and Kim's Wedding Reception

JR and Kim celebrated their wedding with an intimate reception last December 27 
at the Marriott Hotel Ballroom

Robert Blancaflor did an amazing job with the flowers. Each table was adorned
with a unique and simple but elegant centerpiece.

Except for the presidential table


A marvelous, bursting-with-colors one at that

With beautiful blooms cascading down the sides 

Double Happiness wedding cake

The newlyweds surprised the guests with a fun song number - 
Love is an Open Door from the movie Frozen

And with the sweetest kiss

Opening prayer by our pretty flower girl Riyanne

 More pretty girls

And handsome men

A rare get-together with father's side cousins. Many of them flew in for the happy occasion.

A family who kisses together, stays happily married forever.
The newlyweds with parents of the groom and parents of the bride.

Dinner was chinese food.
Disclaimer: Not my choice! Lol!

I have to say though, Marriott's Chinese Executive Chef Law Wui Wing did not disappoint.

Hot prawn salad with ripe mango

Peking duck

 Sauteed scallops with asparagus in XO sauce

Braised fish lip soup with dried scallops and sea cucumber 

Steamed live garoupa

 Spare ribs with fresh strawberries in mandarin sauce

Braised e-fu noodles with assorted meats and vegetables

I wasn't able to take photos of all the dishes because, for once in my life, my attention was not on the food.

The speeches were all so moving, leaving me a happy emotional wreck.

Thankfully, Metrophoto captured everything. 

Our sister Jerrilyn being overly emotional for the 1000th time that day

Meme, as we fondly call her, lives all the way in Virginia with her family and we miss her everyday

Another wreck

Time for some laughs! Wives competed to plant as many kisses on their husbands' underpants.

And the naughtiest girl won!

 Congratulations, Jill and her very lucky husband Danny! :P


Toasting to a future together

JR surprised everyone a second time with another song


Look at his girlfriend of 14 years, in love na in love parin!

And his best man Danny cheered for him the loudest

The couple saying their thank you's. So much raw, beautiful emotions. So much heart.

Of course, it called for another heavy drama moment

For the finale, JR sang Dad's signature song - New York, New York

Dad joined him on stage

 Father's side family

Fatterside family

Father's side cousins

Fatterside cousins

With Auntie Vangie and Uncle Pat who flew in all the way from LA

This photo booth backdrop was my favorite. It was oozing old Shanghai!

Mom and Dad

 Meme and Ryan

 Ahia Emil and I
No kissing because, for the nth time, we are cousins!!! :D

Guests happily took home the gorgeous flowers

They were just too pretty it was a shame to leave them behind

Guess who brought home the botanical garden? Hahahaha!

Congratulations, JR and Kim!!!
