I wasn't supposed to be there. I was supposed to be somewhere else. I found myself playing photographer, clown, and documenting the event as an unofficial part of the group.
He lived in the UAE. I lived in the Philippines. We were not supposed to have become friends. Instead, God had a perfect plan and it involved my meeting him and his then lovely fiancee. For whatever reason God has, I was there to be one of the witness to them tying the knot and sealing their life to become one forever.
I was able to capture shots of the groom on his last few hours of being a bachelor. He spent it with friends and people who matter.
I felt so blessed watching them and being with them. Here was a couple whom you could see have put their relationship to God. The way they looked at each other, handled each other ... it was a sight to see. The love was overflowing and it extended to family and friends.
I'm happy that love shined on them. I am thankful that though love doesn't smile on me, it continues to smile on other people and allows me a glimpse of what it would be like to be part of a real love. They truly are God's perfect plan for the other.
