And after you get married, they’ll start pestering you to have kids. And your friends getting married (or getting pregnant) one after another is no help at all. K and I have been together for 6 years and neither of us have siblings. Imagine that–sometimes I think our relatives are more excited for our wedding than we are, haha.
Last Sunday, one of my friends from college got married. He’s Catholic, so he got married in church (San Augustin), and he’s also Chinese, so there were loads of really good food. I’m not sure but I think this is supposed to give good luck for the couple, or maybe it’s just customary for the Chinese to serve lots of food to their guests. We used stay overnight at his house quite a lot back in college, and his family always served us a table full of pizza, noodles, chicken, and other yummy (mostly Asian) snacks.
True enough, it was one of the nicest weddings we’ve ever attended. The place looked great, and the food! The food was really, really good. The reception was held in Golden Bay Restaurant, and the servers were so attentive that we never had to ask for anything. What we consume, they promptly replace.
But more than anything else, the most beautiful thing at the wedding were the couple themselves. They’re one of the happiest couples I know right now, and my classmate’s bride really do bring out the best in him. I’m glad for that–a person as nice as our friend deserves to be happy.
The couple’s names start with C and R, and they made that the theme of their reception. Yep, comfort rooms. An elaborate pseudo-comfort room was displayed in front of the reception hall and they had cute little rubber duckies as centerpieces. Instead of tapping a wine glass, we were asked to squeeze the duckies to prompt the newlyweds to kiss. Really funny and IMO shows how full of humor the couple is.
