Grant & Wena's Wedding at The Peninsula Manila

DH's best friend from Canada recently tied the knot in San Sebastian Church. We were both glad that Grant has finally found the girl of his dreams. I knew it the moment I met the two of them for the first time (well, first time for Wena) while we were vacationing in Canada last year. The smile on Grant's eyes was different, I knew he was in it for the long run.
