Happy Anniversary to Rhianna and Robert

27 Miracles wants to wish Rhianna and Robert a Happy One Year Anniversary, they were married on 10/11/12 at the Holy Family Catholic Church with their wedding reception at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista in their brand new Ballroom.   It was the first wedding in the new ballroom.

10/11/12 was a beautiful sunny day for a wedding, the weather was perfect.  Rhianna started her day by getting ready with the talents of A Story Telling Experience doing hair and make up.

Rhianna and Robert’s heritage is from the Phillipines.  They had many traditions to share on their wedding day.  From their bridal party having Sponsors so that there were about 30 couples all together.  Their parish priest came from Lakeland to perform the ceremony.  They had the veil and cord ceremony included in their ceremony as part of their tradition.   ( See more on the tradition here http://vowsandhows.com/filipino-veil-cord-coin-ceremony/

You may wonder what is the veil ceremony? “It’s a special square veil designed to go over the groom’s shoulders and the bride’s head. This veil represents everything and everyone who will protect them, their home and their families.”

 

The Cord (Lasso)

 

“Is a long cord in the shape of a figure 8 (infinity), often with a rosary attached, that goes around the wedding couple’s shoulders. It is a symbol of their intimate union and a sign of their bond to each other, and their inseparable unity.”

 

The Arras (Coins)

 

“Exactly 13 coins in a pouch or box is brought to the altar by a small child like the ring bearer or the sponsors.  The coins are given from the groom to the bride as a pledge and promise to financially support their new family. The bride accepts the gift of these coins along with the responsibility of building a loving home.”

Rhianna chose to use a cathedral length veil for the ceremony.

The bride had a very emotional dance with her daddy to a song that he used to sing to her in Filipino “Sing Me Your Song Again Daddy” by Jose Marie Chan, it was very touching. IMG_0950 IMG_0942 IMG_0944 IMG_0945 IMG_0948 IMG_0949

The bride and Groom did the Dollar Dance.  But the tradition in the Phillipines  is for the guests to make a crown and banner of the money and then pin the rest of it to their clothing. The wedding money dance, or Saya ng Pera, is  a requirement at Filipino Weddings.   Rhianna and Robert chose  to play traditional Filipino folk music.
