We tried hard to hold back our tears as we watched Treehouse Story’s video of Augustine and Claudine Coronado whose wedding plans were thrown off course twice—first by Taal’s eruption and second, by the pandemic. Instead of the wedding vows as the video voice over, Augustine, or Ago for short, and his bride Claudine recount their struggle to get to their wedding day. Finally.
“Just like the community quarantine, we were able to realize that the essentials were really what’s important. Just the two of us, still being together, getting married in front of God and our church and with our families, that was all that mattered,” says Claudine as she finished getting her makeup done.
Agu and Claudine were wed at the Manila Cathedral and held their reception at home.
“I do hope you cherish this moment. It might not be the wedding you dreamed of pero ang importante ay ang inyong pagmamahalan sa isa’t-isa,” says the officiating priest.
Watch Treehouse Story’s tearjerker that has perfectly captured both the predicament and the hidden blessing that is getting married during a pandemic. Stay till the end to catch the surprise that had us grabbing a tissue!
