Wow.. I am now officially married and I can’t believe I forgot some of the most important and most influential person who made our wedding blissful and a success during our thank you speech! I now know how a celebrity feels when giving their thank you speech when accepting their awards and forgot to mention the most important person in their life. It’s better late than never applies here again..so here goes my thank you speech. There are myriad of people I want to thank now..in no particular order I want to give thanks to my extended family. My relatives who were there for me from the start. My Sanchez Family especially Ena and Pax, my BFF in the clan with their lovely kiddos for letting them be part of my entourage. My Señeres family for driving all the way here in Pampanga for this event. You have no idea how you made my dad and the entire family happy and glad to see you here in our place. Thanks! Thanks! My hubby’s family. Antonio Family, thank you so much for bringing the whole gang as well as to Espinosa Family. To our bridesmaids you all looked so good with that choco brown gown. Thanks for making it on time, thanks for being part of our day. Our groomsmen, I didn’t recognize you all with those coat and tie. You were all so formal and it suits everyone! To Lez and Anne, I will forever be grateful to know you. Lez who introduced Fej to me..thank you my dear and to Anne that I have to consult then about dating Fej..look at us now. :D Most of you were from far away land but manage to be there and gave their Palm Sunday just for us. Thanks so much. Our principal sponsors: thank you for spending your time with us. We know how chaotic your schedules are but most of you showed up (One ninang got sick and hope she will get well soon and the other one had an emergency trip to US. ) and you all looked so good. Thanks to those who gave us their words of wisdom during the time we’ve met them and deliver the invitation. My MOHs to my sister, ate tiny. If there’s an award for best MOH you’ll get that spot! You did a great job from the start I asked you to be my MOH even if we’re miles away then til you reached PI. Love you so much! My bestfriend Cynthi, thank you for being such a great source of support and voice of reason not only during the planning but even before Jef and I entered this new chapter. Love you best. To my beautiful MOHs, thanks for standing beside us the entire ceremony. Tou our suppliers..again to Kquentor. The talk of the town of our wedding! You did a superb great great excellent job! You know what we like and I’m glad you understand what we really wanted for a video and photos. Yeah, not too cheesy, mushy sweety type of concept but you executed the true love for us in an excellent way. Snap! Snap! Snap! Voltaire and the whole cast of events and concepts. I’m not surprise at all with how you organize our wedding. You really are the best, no doubt! Our guests loved how you manage those xx number of guests from church ceremony, going to reception, food and all. Bravo! My HMU artist- Francis (Frida) :D ..isa pa toh sa pinaguusapan! Thank you for making me more beautiful than my normal beauty! Haha! I love ME so much from the trial, photoshoots, up to the last minute of my wedding! I was so feeling GG gandanghari with my hair! Thank you so much! 5 snaps for Francois! Kquinta band, thanks also! I love that you played all my request during the church ceremony. From my bridal march that everyone was asking the title now…J, soundtrack of our life, first dance and to the reception. Everyone enjoyed the sounds! Too bad my father-daughter song didn’t play (I loved her first). I waited for that and I have to admit I was really disappointed then Jef’s mom was waiting for Michael Buble’s Sway but no avail..other than that, kudos to you and your band for entertaining our guests with your melody some asks for your contact number. Actually, most of our guests are asking for my the above mentioned supplier’s contact info. Is there a referral fee here? :D Thanks to Pancho of Plumeria for the flowers from church to reception also to Bernard of country blossom for the flowers of the whole entourage and my beautiful Hyacinth bouquet. You were right, Hyacinth was really perfect for me! I love! I was just wondering with the headdress of my flowergirls and boutonniere of our dads? All in all, those flowers made the wedding more romantic and blissful! Invitations from Reynolds (yeah, we have something from there and it was good though there were delays and minor corrections..overall we love our invitation! Wine Bags from my cousin Ate dedet..I like! We like! It was so elegant just how we want it. After all those brainstorming on how we can have the best wine bag, we ended up with the best. Thank you! Ate Menchie for giving us big discount with the mini bacardi for our Secondary sponsors, bridesmaids, and groomsmen. Fotokiddo for photobooth. Sayang, not all of our guests were able to get their share of our souvenir. Bong Gonzales for my shoes. The only store where I found my size! We’ve search all the malls from Trinoma, greenbelt, power plant, name-all-the-SM! To MOA! J was the one who gave the idea for design and it was good how it turned out. Blushing Bride of Ate Lenny for my bridal gown and the gorgeous ladies of my entourage. I didn’t have to pay much for a designer gown, just showed them some pics of the dresses and finished it the way I want it too. On a negative note, there some delays with the fitting and all. And the coat we rented for some male entourage wasn’t their size. We have to look for alternative in a rush. Stress! I love my gown and the ladies’ and that’s what matters most to me! :D For wedding rings, thanks to Orodiam. It was just how we want it to be, simple and elegant but lasting! Thanks to ninong Armando for discount.. :D Grand Palazzo Royale, your place was really beautiful; don’t know any other words to describe my venue for church and reception. The first time I checked your place I knew I’ll get married here and I did! I heard negative reviews with your food but for the menu we choose, our guests enjoyed the scrumptious menu from appetizer, soup, main course, dessert and drinks. Some are asking me the list of your menu up to now. Church was really romantic, even if it was crowded with our guests, the solemnity was still there. Bridal Car, jaguar, thank you for that strong aircon I need while waiting for my turn to march. Mang Jo the driver who was cracking some joke while driving me from the villa to chapel which was like 5 minutes away kept me still and put the tense away. Thank you also for letting us (with Kquentors) have a photoshoot on your Golf Club and the fireworks were breathtaking! Waiter’s parade was also entertaining and enjoyed by our friends. I’ve heard it was a perfect performance unlike before, thank you waiters! J To my Jef’s family. Mama, papa and Charis- ( I still have to practice uttering the first 2 with confidence) Thank you! I don’t know what else to say. To J’s parents, thank you so much for treating me like your own from the day Jef introduced me to you. You two are one of the most gentle, kind and humble person I know, knowing that you have 2 lovely children and I thank you for trusting me to have J in my life. Cha, you were stunning that day and as always. You were not prepared with your speech but the message you gave sounds good to our ears. We love you. Most of all, thank you for your son. Without you, he wouldn’t be in my life. To my one big family Señeres. Thank you so so much! First to the jack of all trade, my eldest sister Kitty. The minute I announced my engagement, you started planning the wedding even ahead of us. Thank you for your talents with this kind of event. Thank you for your connections from all the suppliers mentioned, without you we may have gotten the not so good ones..:D We love you! Thank you for taking good care of our wedding from planning til day itself. From the biggest thing, to the smallest one even designing those match box and all wedding stuff I can think of.

Thank you for making him part of our family even before this day. Ma, thanks for guiding me always in this relationship and sharing how important He is to center our relationship. Dad, thank you for not intimidating Jef with you beer-power and sharing your cooking tips to him. Thanks to both of you for preparing our lunch and dinner, you know how bad I am in that part. We love you both. Our parents are our epitome of what marriage should be with about 30 years in the making for both our parents. I can only hope that ours will be as strong as yours. There are no words to express my gratitude for everything you have done for me, for us, I love you! Last but definitely not the least, to my husband, (naks!) my bubu, my Jef..our first dance is exactly how I am feeling for you. “if you knew how happy you are making me…” You completely changed my life---in a good way. :D Thank you my boo for being my biggest fan, supporter, my punching bag, my best friend and now my husband. God blessed that broken road (in Bamban?) that lead you straight to me. Thank you for giving everything I ever asked for, from that last sip of our fave coffee drink to last bite of our fave snack. You always find a way to make me feel special even if I always say the opposite. Thank you for putting up with my craziness eversince we’ve met, most especially during the planning and choosing of whatevs! You understand me, me not needing to utter a single word. Your values, traits and spirits matched my own. I thank you for being you my boo. I love you. And as I’ve promised..always and forever. To everyone, thank you for sharing our joy and being with us on the most important and happiest day if our life. My wedding, my husband, my fish, my family, my friends, are everything I could have dreamed and more. And let me just say that I can't wait to sign my name for the first name as Mrs. Lady Angeline Grace Señeres-Espinosa P.S. God, thank You so much for a fine warm weather and for guiding us all throughout. I know you are still with us after this, helping us in building this new family. Thank you for the love, thank you for Jef. You know how long I have prayed for this kind of man to come into my life and you gave him to me just in time. Thank you for making this day the best day for us. You know how much I love you.
