Music for weddings

Tying the knot between soon-to-be couples is one of the best moments in life. Being in front of many people with the one you will love for the rest of your life must be perfect that is why weddings are planned for months. Choosing the music that will play in your wedding has to be symbolic for the couple, whether it is their theme song or the song they heard when they first met, it has to be connected to them. Love songs indeed are the wedding background music for all time but you can also include serene and soft instrumentals while the guests are at the reception. It would be nice if you know someone like a balladeer to sing at the wedding reception to liven up the occasion.

A Lifetime Commitment: Love Beyond Prison Walls

I’ve met an admirable couple from the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City six years ago. No, they were not inmates. The husband used to serve time, but he is an active preacher of a religious community now. The wife, however, used to be a social worker who assists in the rehabilitation program of inmates inside NBP. Their love blossomed beyond the prison walls. They are old now but their eyes still show how much they care for each other.

How is this related to my post about wedding outfits? Well, one of couple’s daughters marries an inmate who is serving life term. The young couple met while the young woman’s family is doing religious services inside the NBP compound every Sunday. The young man is also a preacher.

They got married in a simple ceremony officiated by the bride’s Pastor Dad sans lavish wedding preparation. If the young couple had agreed, a well-to-do relative is willing to pay for the outfit of the wedding entourage, but the couple choose to wear a simple attire that they bought from their own savings. The couple is raising their two kids.
