Romulo Tobias ♥ Nena Bacud(Golden Wedding Anniversary)30 December | Manila Hotel"Never did Capt. Romulo and Lola Nena thought that they would have their vows renewed 50 years after their wedding. A Golden Shotgun Wedding, so to speak. A true labor of love, the Tobias family, together with their relatives and pamangkins prepared a long time for this secret special event. Everyone contributed and shared for the new rings of the couple. Since the family wanted a very simple but memorable wedding, they did almost everything by themselves: coordination, invites for 120 guests, planning, and even entertainment. They made sure the big secret would not leak out. All along, the couple thought they were just going to have a family pictorial at Manila Hotel and Luneta Park since it was their wedding anniversary. We played along, of course, but still documented everything. Capt. Romulo and Lola Nena walked into a room full of people who loved them. They were accompanied by marching cadettes and still haven’t got a clue of what’s happening. Reaching the altar, Lola Nena was so surprised to see the man standing in front of them. The brother of Capt. Tobias, Most Rev. Antonio Tobias. The same man who wed them 50 years ago.”~Dominic Barrios, photographer

Loving this Kate Middleton-inspired lace dress. It can be so old-fashioned and modern at the same time.
