Pao & Sam tie the Knot | Hello Mr. & Mrs. Valenciano ♥

Just one photo because I was too busy making memories with family and friends to tune out and take lots.  My BFF cousin Paolo Valenciano married his childhood sweetheart, Sam, and no words can define how happy I am for both of them.


We’ve known Sam since like forever.  All us cousins (don’t ask how many) from all 4 sides of both parent sets, (Valenciano, Pangilinan, Godinez, Tabuena) have “hung out” with each other for years.  Sam’s dad, Tito Jaime, being the sound and technical director for Tito (Uncle) Gary’s shows since the 80s, often had his family in tow backstage, on tour, and at family gatherings.  Two families…were undoubtedly meant to become one and believe me it was one tearjerker and fun-filled blast of a wedding.  My often shy, non-limelight cousin Paolo did not  conceal or withhold any joy he felt yesterday as a new husband.  Who ever really knows what God has planned for those who love Him and seek His approval? Oh, here’s a little secret the bride was keeping and I’m not sure everyone knew…

Instead of sky high stilettos or even other sorts of traditional bridal footwear Sam was wearing these sweetly glittery Toms underneath her bridal gown the whole time, a lovely laid back twist for a bigtime wedding.
