View from the hotel room πŸ™‚ Wonderful morning indeed!

It was an early start for hair and makeup last September 6, 2014 πŸ™‚Β  I really don’t mind waking up in the wee hours of the morning.Β  It’s so peaceful knowing almost everyone is still asleep πŸ™‚

Our wedding preps were in Manila Hotel, one of my favorite hotels, and the bride was one of my favorite preschool teachers at my son’s previous school, Teacher Kit πŸ™‚

Teacher Kit was my son’s very first teacher.Β  Damien Crow was about two years old and he couldn’t speak yet.Β  So there was a time when he would bite his other classmates when he would get frustrated.Β  This was our biggest issue at that time.Β  Haha!Β  Thank you for your patience, Teacher Kit! πŸ™‚
