While typing the title of this blog entry I almost put “Solon” instead of “Mik”, we should really stop calling him that. All throughout college we were so used to calling him by his last name so naturally we were doing just that during the entire wedding reception, I was actually surprised that we weren’t turning a lot of heads considering that half of Mik’s guests were related to him and they probably had Mik’s last name too. Haha.
Amidst the crazy circumstances and the time constraints, I’m glad we got to witness one of our closest guy friend get hitched to the long time love of his life. I think the last time I saw Solon was right before I migrated to Houston, he moved to Chicago too but in those years that we spent in the US we never found the time to meet up. I’d like to think it was perfect timing for us to still be here, imagine if we moved back to Houston a few months earlier then we would have completely missed this celebration of love.
Like every one else I knew these two were going to end up with each other, it was clearly just a matter of time. Solon and Poi got hitched in the US before coming home to the Philippines so they had a simple renewal of vows by the ocean, in front of closest family and friends. It was a wonderful and intimate celebration and I do have to agree with Missy, the place looked like “Pinterest ideas that came to life”. I loved how everything was charming and rustic. Hats off to Poi…I know how hard it is to plan a wedding fro across the miles but you pulled it off and the details were just gorgeous.

Solon and Poi, thanks so much for having us, it was a fun and relaxed wedding and I’d have to say we enjoyed it immensely. We love you both and we’ll see you in the States.
Congratulations and Best Wishes!
