My Ondoy Brides

This has been in my draft folder for the longest time :-(

I've been wanting to post a blow-by-blow account of what happened that day but just couldn't find the time nor the words to aptly describe what happened. I wanted to share the ordeals my staff had to go through just to be able to dress up these brides, some failed and some made it just in time. I wanted to share how courageously these two faced the day and with such admirable grace. I guess, there's not enough words, just feelings. Everyone in Manila felt the wrath of Ondoy anyway, so why bother reiterating it. But come to think of it, can we actually imagine how these brides really felt? Probably not for sure, but never mind. They looked totally beautiful, and they got married to their chosen one. Perhaps not exactly how they planned it to be, but equally meaningful and definitely more memorable :-)
