Ceremony at Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral

I have always wanted to get married in Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. I knew in my heart that one day, I'd be walking down the aisle in this historical piece of architecture. When my chance to get married came along, I have only one church in mind. However, just to be on the safe side, I have thought of a few other church options, just in case I won't get lucky enough to get booked at my first church of choice. But after going through church requirements preparation, I was finally booked at Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. The ceremony is at 4:00 P.M. and dinner reception follows at 5:30 P.M.

Why Cathedral, you might ask? Well, aside from the apparent beauty and grandeur of the architecture inside and out, this church brings back a lot of cherished grade school memories. My sister and I went to school at YLAC Elementary School from Grades I-VI. It is a free Catholic school run by RVM sisters which is situated right at the back of the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral. During major examinations time, my sister and I, along with my mom who brings and picks us up from school would hang out on a small, comfy, cool shaded area right beside the church at lunch time. Mom would help us review for the exams. On occasions when our school had to attend mass, all grade schoolers would march to Cathedral escorted by our teachers and principal. Since my wedding is a very personal occasion, I think it's just fitting to include venues and people who were part of who I am. Considering how many brides would like to get married on the months of December and January, I just feel so lucky to have the opportunity to be wed here.

hello jen, good choice of church specially that they're done with the new design. Gold plated na ang altar (pwede na maprenda hehehe) and it really looked good in photos.
