Knowing a couple from their beginning to their new beginning is something I've been fortunate to experience. Joe and Riann are one such case. I've known Riann since she was a 7th grader. I live in her old house actually. And Joe I've known since freshman year in high school. Since they got together in 1998, I never thought their wedding day, though technically 10 years in the development, would come so soon. I'm so happy I've been there to witness practically everything.

Here's the happy couple with Michelle and Earl - maid of honor and best man (pair 1). They got to say their speeches at the rehearsal dinner. Upon bringing tears and laughter to Joe and Riann, you can tell why they were given such an honorable part in the special day.
And this is Earl's daughter and Joe's goddaughter, Malia. Oh my goodness, have you ever seen such an adorable baby?! We were playmates for a few days due to all the wedding activities. DON'T YOU JUST WANT TO PUT HER IN YOUR POCKET?!!!
Wake-up time on the day of the wedding (for the girls anyway) was 6:30 am.
Had to get our faces put on and our hair styled for sassiness.
With 7 attendants, talk about shoes galore...
Riann's been wearing two rings for the last year and a half.
One from the people who gave her life,
and the other from the person who's giving her a new life.
I couldn't resist sharing this picture. While Michelle's curly hair was setting, she had to run some errands. Don't you just want to call her "Tita" when you look at this? haha!
But then she transformed into this...
Here's Maria (known to those of us who love her as Pin),
looking on as Riann gets ready...
Aaaah, more beautiful bridesmaids: Jamie, Jenn, Rachey and April
...and Cile.
Check out the husband and wife team: Bev and Ja Tecson =)
Oh babygirl, you were truly one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen!
Here are some of Joe's knucklehead groomsmen after the wedding,
looking kinda handsome in those barongs.
Cocktail hour time, baby!
Pat and Kay enjoying the open bar =)
Riann's bouquet
Matron of honor and best man (pair 2), Pin and Edwin. Memorable speeches!
Joe and Riann cutting their guava custard wedding cake...
Check out the cake-topper. Was Riann previously engaged to
Barack Obama? hahaha!
The Landas Shot. Thanks for the lesson, James.
Iya, Bobbers, Cile and Me - looking forward to next month's wedding =)
Check out Kay dancing away with the groom. Hahaha!
Dancing Queen was out that night!
Thank goodness Ja and Bev got a break for the reception. Otherwise, Bev might've been found in the corner with a camera in her hand looking like this...
...or this...
...or this...hahahaha! Oh Bev, you had pregnant ladies clowning you in your sleep!
On Sunday night, Joe and Riann were off to their honeymoon in the Caribbean;
Turks and Caicos to be exact.
