The venue at Hacienda Solange for the garden wedding of Philip James C. Pornel and Roselle Jane Siao; the newlywed Philip James and Roselle Jane Pornel; the groom Philip James C. Pornel waits for his bride with his Dad Elmer Felix Pornel and twin brother Patrick John C. Pornel; and the bride Roselle Jane Siao and Mom Lita Siao walk down the aisle for former’s wedding date.
Like the fairy tale pumpkin that turned into a beautiful carriage, the gardens of Hacienda Solange in Alfonso, Cavite, was transformed into a perfect venue for the wedding of my goodlooking nephew PHILIP JAMES C. PORNEL to beauteous ROSELLE JANE SIAO. Rain stopped and fog lifted in time for the ceremonies.
The groom, a cabin crew at Philippine Airlines, is the son of ELMER FELIX PORNEL and my late sister MARIAN CASTIGADOR-PORNEL while the bride, formerly a community engagement specialist at PLDT, is the daughter of ROLANDO and LITA SIAO.
Pastor Vic Quisumbing officiates the vows of the bride and groom; the vow is sealed with a kiss; the groom Philip James C. Pornel with family members: brothers Joseph Felix and Patrick John, nephew Josef Joachim, Dad Elmer Felix, and brother Michael Jacob and his son Noah Sebastian; and the bride with Maid of Honor and Bridesdmaids.
The ninongs and ninangs led the family members, relatives and friends in witnessing the blessings of Officiating Pastor VIC QUISUMBING and the exchange of “I do’s,” which was sealed with a kiss!
Some principals sponsors, like FULBERT SY-FORMENTERA, AMALIA MAGALIT, ANGELOCHINGCUANGCO, EVANGELINE KIM, ELLEN BERNABE-TOLENTINO and my sister MARY CASTIGADOR-SPICAK, were unable to make it for one reason or another. Nevertheless, they sent their love and kisses to the newlyweds!
