A Downpour of Blessings

The wedding planner plans a wedding

A month ago, I posted something (here) about sharing this “raw, unspoilt beauty in the rugged nooks and crannies of the vast La Paz sand dunes” to a friend. My friend May Rose Rabang (who I met in Victory Fellowship) was getting hitched and it was only when we went to the dunes that I met her fiancé, swimming coach Angelo Lamsen. They instantly fell in love with the spot overlooking the Padsan River in the same way they fell for each other. Such a beautiful (filmic) love story.

The wedding invitation

The cutest wedding theme ever — gypsy Rose meets dandy Gatsby. May Rose is a wedding planner/event coordinator in real life.

Rains

And then it poured about an hour before the scheduled wedding ceremony. A man once said, “You can plan events, but if they go according to your plan they are not events.”

Well, when life hands you a lemon, make lemonade. The whole shebang was moved from the dunes to Arabella’s in a jiff.

(Dear May: Found this on the net — “Rain usually represents cleansing and purification. It can also represent the release of tension… Rain replenishes and brings fertility so it may also symbolize that you are opening to a new phase of personal growth in your life.” via dreamsleep.net  To May and Angelo: Cheers!)

The lemonade was made with natural honey — sweet and refreshing — and sprinkled with “words to live by” by no less than Pastor Benny Bagaoisan.

And I spiked mine with a little vodka:)
