Vivid Memory: Day 31 of Blog Every Day in May

Today is the last day of the Blog Every Day in May challenge and the last prompt is a vivid memory.

I have so many vivid memories that I was actually not sure if I wanted to choose one and write about it.  Sometimes I'm weird like that, I get lazy to make those kinds choices.  But I decided to finish the challenge with you guys so here I am.

I am just going to tell you my most recent vivid memory -- a moment on my wedding day.

While I waited inside the car, my friend, Niki saw me, opened the car door and said, "I hate you, ang ganda mo!"  (I hate you, you're so beautiful!)  

I don't know why but the minute she said it, the floodgates opened and the tears started streaming down my cheeks.  I couldn't stop them.  Nikki had to go in and wait with me.  I cried and laughed and cried and laughed and cried again.  I didn't even know exactly the reason I was crying at the time and I still don't.  Whenever Nikki tried to tell me something, I'd start crying all over again.  It was crazy.

The driver, a man probably in her early 50's turned to look at me.   I think he was a romantic because of the way he smiled at what was going on.  He said that he encountered a lot of brides who forced themselves to cry while I, on the other hand, just couldn't stop.  He handed me a box of tissue paper so I could dry my tears and blow my nose.  That was just fortunate because the tissue paper I had in my pouch was all wet and soggy.

Needless to say, I ruined my eye makeup before I even marched down the aisle.   I was lucky my makeup artist was there and did something about it.

Sorry, I don't have a photo of this moment  My photographers were too busy doing something else.

I have something taken probably five or ten minutes after.

That's me and my friend, Nikki after my makeup artist retouched my makeup.

and me, marching down the aisle...
