On June 2012, I flew to Cebu, Philippines for my best friend’s wedding.
Christine and I had been friends since Kindergarten. Best friends from the age of nine till I had to move to the United States at the age of 16. My last memory prior to moving from Cebu City, Philippines to Union City, California was going to tennis camp during the summer with Christine and squealing over how hot Patrick Rafter was.
In the years that followed, I had seen her a few times as I visited the Philippines and she came to visit the United States.
However, despite the time and distance that had separated us, I was proud to stand as a bridesmaid at her wedding to Mr. Romeo. No, literally, his name is Romeo. But we all call him by his nickname…Junie.
Here are some photos from her wedding:
It was such a fun night. I always wondered who my friends would have been or what kind of person I would have grown up to be if I had stayed in the Philippines. If Cre and her friends are any indication, I think I would have been just fine…a little more metal in my music, maybe a little more in touch with creativity, too.
I know Cre and Junie will have an amazing marriage. They’ve already been through so much together, and have always supported each other. I believe in both of them, and they make me believe that there is a happily ever after.
