Michiel and Kim Part 1

When guests arrive at their respective hotels, they’re welcomed with a bag made of sinamay full of goodies (the things you look for after taking an airplane, 1.5 hour bus ride, and a 20 minute boat ride to the island) and a note. The note says that on March 20, 2010 we meet with the bride and groom at Boat Station 3 for a sunset cruise around Boracay Island. Sweet.

When the sun sets, the yacht positions itself near The Cove (Asya Premier). It’s far from the rest of Boracay’s busy nightlife. Yet, you hear something when the yacht approaches the shore: the rolling of ethnic drums. The best man says with his Dutch accent, “Wow. I’m getting nervous with the sound! It’s like Survivor.” You feel exactly that. The hairs on your neck stand.

As each guest steps on the fine sand, they are led by tikki lamps to a table full of cocktails: mojito, boracay cruise, and pina coladas in coconut shells. Low tables set the mood: relaxed, casual.

There are games to entertain the intimate number of guests and an ethnic dance prepared by the bride’s friends and fellow dancers from Disneyland Hong Kong.

When guests arrived back to their hotels, they are once again greeted by a note placed on the bed from the bride and groom. It’s a quote from Cinderalla: “A dream is a wish the heart makes.”

This is for Michiel and Kim who followed their dreams and followed their hearts.
