Joie and Mathias

Joie and Mathias

A Wedding in Cebu

In a series of unplanned events, I found myself in the groom's room in the morning, taking care of the footage there, milling with the groomsmen who were having their fill of Pale Pilsen.  I found out the Swiss are a gentle, fun loving lot, with or without the beir.  They came in full force for Mathias, for his big day.  (Mathias - kind, polite and fun loving,  there's a lot of Pinoy in him actually).

Mathias met Joie in Switzerland (of course!) at their workplace Nestle (of course!).  And the love story ran it's course , spanning continents and time zones, culminating in the beautifully set up Metropolitan Cathedral in Cebu.

The highlight of the evening could easily have been Claude (the bestman) or Kate Torralba performing outdoors with a grand piano, the spectacular fireworks display, or the cake made entirely out of different kinds of cheese.  But for me, it was Joie's father rocking to Guns n' Roses during the dance with his daughter.
