Status Update: The Wedding

” Sana okay lang to…. wish ko lang hahahaha 

…okay go..”

 

 

Nasa simbahan na sina Richard. Isa-isa naring dumating ang mga piling guests na inimbitahan nila para sa kasal. Kinakabahan si Richard at hanggang ngayon di parin siya nakakatanggap ng tawag from Cristina Rose.

“Dad? Are you okay?”

“I’m okay, son.”

He smiled at him to hide what he really feels. He fetch his phone from his pocket to call Cristina Rose but then may commotion na nangayri sa labas ng simbahan.

“Dad, she’s here na.”

“Really?”

“Of course, Dad?!”

Luke chuckle then shake his head. Ngayon lang niya nakitang kinabahan ng ganito ang dad niya.

Tinatawag na ng wedding planner at ng mga assistant niya ang lahat ng kasali sa entourage. Their entourage is not like the  typical wedding entourage. They only have their immediate family members , Abby as the only flower girl, Cho the ring and bible bearer, Kute and Jeff for the veil, Nikki and Luke for the cord,  and Raffy and Charlie for the candles. For the witnesses, Richard and  Maya chose Manang Fe and Don Julio .

The sound of the piano playing  traditional wedding march started. Richard is the first one to walk alone on the aisle. gownDon Roberto and Donya Esmeralda are already on the designated seats assigned for them together with the witnessess and the rest of the guests. Next was cho carrying the wedding rings and the bible. Then he was followed by nanay Teresita who stopped at the middle of the aisle to wait for Maya.  Next is Abby, carefully throwing red rose petals on the carpet as walks towards where her father is standing. Di mapagkakaila na sa araw na yon isa din si Abby sa pinakamasaya at finally ikakasal na si Maya sa daddy niya. Si Maya na dating yaya, naging bestfriend, at ngayon ang kanyang pangalawang mommy na.

Then came the star of the event. Si Maya. Everyone in the room was greeted with the dazzling beauty of Maya, wearing her white chanrmeuse ball-gown cut wedding dress, she look like a queen walking to her throne.. Speechless ang lahat ng makita siya, but what makes the moment touching is the music played as Maya walks down the aisle. Nanay Teresita is just so proud to see her daughter, looking so beautiful, elegant, and sophisticated at the same time. Her dear Maya. The princess of her house will soon become the queen of somebody’s heart and home.

Maya didn’t know about the music. Sa rehearsal nila, yung wedding march lang palagi pinapatugtog kaya nagulat talaga siya ng pagbukas ng pinto ng simbahan sabay ding pinapatugtog ang kantang “Simply Jessie”. It was Richard’s idea,  a surprise for her on their wedding day, he thought the lyrics somehow sum up everything he wanted to tell Maya.

 

And I dont know how I knew it
But I knew it somehow
Youre the answer to the question
No ones answered till now
And I dont know what you see
What you see in me
Girl its nothing to what I see in you

Stars that glisten
Lips for kissin
Honey listen its true
No one ever loved you better
I love ya honey

And Ive known a girl or two
But none of them was you
And they could never be what you are to me

Stars that glisten
Lips for kissin
Honey listen its true
No one ever loved you better
I love ya honey I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

Maya promised herself now to cry during her march but she just can’t help it. When she saw nanay Teresita wiping her tears, one by one, tears started falling down her cheeks. Thankfully, she is wearing waterproof maskara or else it would be a disaster. When she look at their guests, everyone’s sniffing and smiling at her at the same time. All the girls got so emotional when they saw Maya, nahawa sa pagiging mababaw ng luha niya. Sino ba namang hindi, kung may maririnig kang kanta from your soon-to-be husband telling everybody that he loves you truly ? As she continue walking, Maya saw Emman, in his baby pink suit, wiping his tears with a tissue.

Emman pinangatawanan mo talaga ang pagiging Ambassador of Pink ! Nagmukha ka tuloy Pink Panther.

Amused on how he look, Maya suppress a smile and just look down hanggang sa nalagpasan na niya ang kaibigan . Her friend never fails to make her day.

Maya continues to walk slowly down the aisle, then she saw Rafi, teary-eyed, standing next to Charlie. She could still remember the time she told her sila na ni Richard. Ang saya-saya ni Rafi and when they told her magpapakasal na sila, di rin nito napigil ang sarili at napaiyak sa sobrang saya na finally lalagay na sila sa tahimik.

Abby is beaming with joy as she look at Maya. She is standing right at the end of the aisle looking so pretty in her little bride gown. Maya reminisce those happy moments she spent with her. Di siya makapaniwala na andito siya ngayon, soon magiging official na parte na ng pamilya nila.

Then there he is..right behind the sweet little Abby, the man of her  dreams. Richard Lim. Masungit, suplado,workaholic, perfectionist…at higit sa lahat gwapo. That was before..now..Richard Lim, her Sir Chief. Caring, loving, thoughtful, sweet…gwapo, as always … her friend, her lover, and soon.. he will be her husband..her king.

Huminto si Maya sa harap ng nanay niya, then they both walk along together  patungo kay Richard. His lips curve, showing a nervous smile. In his teary eyes, she can see joy. Maya and nanay Teresita stop briefly right infront of  Richard. When he took  her hand, his was ice-cold and shaking slightly. She leaned a little to whisper so that only Richard could hear what she’s going to say.

“Sir Chief, first time mo?”

Then she smile foolishly, her way to calm them both. When he heard it, walang magawa si Richard but give a pout. He hates it when she’s making fun of him at his vulnerable times, just like this moment,. But he must admit..somehow nakakagaan sa loob ang ginawa ni Maya, and only Maya can do that to him.

He then leads her to the altar where the officiating priest is waiting. Soon after, the wedding ceremony started. The traditional marriage rites took place, mass..exchange of rings, the lighting of the candles, etc. was done then came the wedding vows. They are both facing each other while holding each other’s hands.

“Maya, alam mo ba kung bakit bagay tayo?”

Nagtataka ang lahat kung bakit ganun ang simula ng wedding vow ni Richard but no one dared to make any noise and just waited.

“Bakit?”

Maya giggle, she know what is coming.

“Kasi ako ang eroplano at ikaw ang hangar ko.”

Everyone burst out laughing. Namula si Richard sa hiya. Then he cleared his throat.

“Okay serious na to..”

“Buti naman ” (Maya look down, trying to stop herself from laughing again)

“Okay na? Pwede na akong magpatuloy?”

“Sige go!”

Maya look at him once again.

“Maya I know that i’m supposed to give you a vow today, but I decided that instead of that… I would share to you my dreams and wishes . First, I wish of watching my favorite tv program at night, lying on the couch with my head on your lap. I dream of moments when we are mad of each other, you turn your back on me as we sleep, but i will hug you  tightly because i forgot we are fighting and that i’m so used of holding you close whenever we sleep at night . I wish of a morning  when I am greeted of the aroma of your coffee when I go to the breakfast table. I dream of you kissing me good morning when i wake up, goodbye when I drop you to work, and good night before I close my eyes at night. I dream of hearing your laughter echoes around the house as you and the kids shares funny stories when i get home from work. I dream of hearing noise of the kids while they are chasing little Maya and little Richard in our home.I dream of a life full of love, laughter, and good memories with you. Maya, the moment I knew I love you, I only have dreams of you, me and our family.”

Richard slightly squeeze Maya’s hand.

“Richard, Sir Chief.. ipapangako kong sa abot ng makakaya ko isa-isa nating gawin lahat ng dreams mo. I promise na kahit maingay ako, pag ikaw na ang nagsasalita makikinig ako. I promise na pag di maganda ang araw mo, ako ang magiging rason para lumamig ang init ng iyong ulo. I promise na kahit makulit ako, mamahalin mo parin ako. I promise na kahit madami kang problema sa trabaho mo, ako at ang mga anak mo ang magiging rason para magmamadali kang umuwi pagkatapos ng trabaho. I promise na ako ang magiging best flight attendant ng buhay mo..at ako ang best hangar ng iyong puso. ”

“I love you”

“I love you too.”

Nagpalakpakan lahat ng nasa loob ng simbahan.

Moments later, the priest pronounce them husband and wife. The priest ask Richard to kiss Maya and everyone inside the church cheered! Richard slowly lift the veil off her head, cup Maya’s head then kiss her gently on her lips. The kiss linger for a few seconds before he break for a tight embrace.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The reception was held on a garden, all the guest who attended the wedding and of course the newlywed’s immediate familyblacken are all having a grand time. Enjoying the ambiance, the food, and the music.  Instead of the usual program na nangyayari sa reception isang gardne party ang naging theme ng reception. Maya and Richard decided to hire a band to play sa reception to set the mood of the  reception. Mas gusto nila ito kesa traditional na program kasi mas may panahon silang makausap at pasalamatan ang mga taong dumalo. Nilapitan isa-isa nina Richard at Maya ang bawat table ng mga guests nila, buti na lang nagpalit na si Maya ng damit kundi sigurado siyang mahirap gumalaw-galaw sa haba ng gown niya. Maya changed into a white tutleneck dress made of silk. Simply but it defines Maya’s curves. The dress that Richard pick for her to wear at the reception.

The band was playing different kinds of music genres.  While the kids are enjoyed dancing, busy naman ang mga adults sa bawat mesa. Sina Maya at Richard nag-iikot, greeting their guest, stayed for a while sa bawat mesa para makipag usap sandali bago lumipat ulit sa kabilang mesa . Sina Doris at Sabel naman sinasamantala ang  pagiging guest at panay ang bulungan sa mga nakikitang mga gwapos sa tabi-tabi. Lagi tuloy sila napapagalitan ni Manang Fe dahil sa ingay nila. Sina Mamang, nanay Teresita, Cristina Rose, Don Roberto,Donya Esmeralda at si  Manang Fe ang magkakausap sa iisang mesa. Nakangiti habang tinitingnan ang masayang bagong kasal na di maalis-alis ang ngiti sa mga labi nila habang kausap ang mga bisita. Makahawak pa lagi ang kamay at ayaw bitiwan ni Richard. Suddenly the lights are switch off except for the lights at the center.

It was the cue that Richard was waiting..

“Chard, anong nangyayari?’

“Relax..”

He pull her gently, leading her towards the center.

Richard lead her to a slow dance. Wrapping his arms around her holding her possessively, while Maya let her head rest on his chest, closing her eyes while her  hands wrap around his waist. Enjoying the music as they dance to the rhythm. Then suddenly Maya heard the voice of Nikki, Luke and Abby singing at the background, kung saan man sila nakapwesto di alam ni Maya kasi wala siyang nakikita sa sa sobrang dilim. Sinadya talaga nila na  patayin ang  ibang ilaw at ang ilaw lang na nasa kanila nakatutok ang matira. That moment, Maya felt lost in a world of their own. Parang panaginip lang..

Panalangin ko sa habang buhay
Makapiling ka Makasama ka
Yan ang panalangin ko

At hindi papayag ang pusong ito
Mawala ka sa ‘king piling
Mahal ko iyong dinggin

Wala nang iba pang mas mahalaga
Sa tamis na dulot ng pag-ibig natin dal’wa
At sana nama’y makikinig ka
Kapag aking sabihing minamahal kita

Panalangin ko sa habang buhay
Makapiling ka Makasama ka
Yan ang panalangin ko

At hindi papayag ang pusong ito
Mawala ka sa ‘king piling
Mahal ko iyong dinggin

Wala nang iba pang mas mahalaga
Sa tamis na dulot ng pag-ibig natin dal’wa
At sana nama’y makikinig ka
Kapag aking sabihing minamahal kita

 

At the middle of the song, Richard stopped dancing.

“Magpaalam ka na..”

Still in haze, she blink twice.

“Ha?”

Richard  whisper..

“Magpaalam kana at aalis na tayo.”

“Aalis..uuwi na tayo? Madami pang tao Richard.”

When Maya didn’t get it, Richard just smirk. He turn to his right and motion for the light. Then slowly the lights were switch back and music gently fades.

“We would like to thank everyone for coming over and share this special occasion with us. Please enjoy the rest of the evening, we’ll go ahead as we still have a flight to catch up. ”

Nagpalakpakan ang lahat at naghihiyawan.

“Saan tayo pupunta?”

“Honeymoon..saan pa ba?”

Honeymoon?

“Wala naman tayong napag-usapang honeymoon ah..”

“It’s my parent’s wedding gift for us.”

Hila-hila na ni Richard si Maya patungong labasan kung saan naghihintay ang sasakyanag maghahatid sa kanila sa airport. Naunang pumasok si Maya sa sasakyan, panay parin ang tanong nito sa kanya.

“Sa airport na tayo kaagad?”

“Oo”

“Saan?”

“Basta”

“Ilang days?”

“Secret!”

“Teka wala akong dalang damit..”

“Honeymoon yon,pwede ng walang damit”

Biro ni Richard sa kanya, claim her mouth for a kiss to shut her up.
