October 12, 2017 was a very special day for my sister Julie and now brother-in-law Dan.

It was a day we gave away a daughter and a sister, a day we welcomed a son and a brother, and a day two families were joined in God’s house. It was a day for both sun and rain, a day for music and thanksgiving, and a day for tears and laughter.

Allow me to share with you the priceless moments and details of this remarkable day.

Papa quietly slipped out of the Bridal room to pray for sun in the chapel near our hotel. True enough, after a good 30 minutes, the rain stopped. HP2A9773HP2A9673Dan after reading Ate Julie’s letter.HP2A9510HP2A9508Dan is the youngest and only boy in the family and the camera caught such tender moments among them siblings. HP2A9677Sneaky photo of Brian and I running errands. MRK42877MRK42799MRK42773MRK42881MRK42672Ate Julie with her Bridesmaids, Mase and Majel.

Something just like this. 

Something just like this. 

I am writing this because Coldplay and the Chainsmokers released their collab song Something Just Like This. The song reminded me of a memory from not so long ago, which I felt needed to be written down. 

“I realize you are not the romantic type of man. One who gives flowers, write letters, etc.” she said as they were discussing their differences.

“Did you want someone like that?” He asked.

Her reply was instantaneous and firm. It was something important she felt she had to make him fully understand.

“No. I want you.”
