(photo by Edwin Tuyay) Last February 12, Jay Contreras (frontman of the band Kamikaze) married Sarah Abad (sister of actress Kaye Abad) in a ceremony held at Paco Park. Their color motif? BLACK. The entourage and wedding guests were all wearing dresses and suits in that color yet the general tone didn’t look morbid at all. At best, it came out unconventional and fun simply looking at the pictures. Even the bride’s gown was accentuated by a black waistband which looked elegant. The groom’s long hair was even braided while the couple’s tattoos provided a refreshing contrast to the typical wedding photos.
Their chosen wedding ceremony venue was a bit controversial for a few as we read some comments in couple of personal blogs who have posted about this celebrity wedding. A few felt that having a ‘cemetery’ for a venue was a bit too weird or creepy for their taste. So we feel a little clarification is in order:
[source: wikipedia] “Paco Park was once Manila’s municipal cemetery during the Spanish colonial period. But burial or interment at the place already ceased in 1912. Descendants of those who were buried in the park had the remains of their ancestors transferred. A Roman Catholic chapel was built inside the walls of the Paco Park (Chapel of St. Pancratius). It has since become a very popular venue for weddings and receptions for couples who prefer a garden-like settings.”
