If there would be a contest for the fastest preparation yet a decent wedding ever made, I would gladly make for an entry our own big day.
The Celera-Revil Nuptial has been planned and prepared for only 12 days.
With the help of my Tita Gina Gerona-Bello, we were able to custom-made my gown along with that of the entourage in less than a week. Being former Mutya ng Pilipinas, she has a lot of fashion designer friends who agreed to do it. Babang Del Mundo was the primary designer for my wedding gown.
I especially drew inspiration from my parents- Adolfo P. Celera Jr. and Marymode Gerona-Celera who with their loving marital relationship made me look forward to a blissful marriage as well.
With faith as my guide... let love take flight...
They reiterated that for every successful man, behind is a woman and I have to be that woman to him. =)
I have to watch his back and support him in all the ways that I can.
Be his bestfriend, lover, mother of his children, supporter and fan.
"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands..."
- Ephesians 5:22-33
|"Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands..."|
1 Peter 3:1-11

My mother's lessons I shall keep in my heart--
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." - Proverbs 31:30
"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."- Ephesians 4:2
"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."-
"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels."-
"Lift up your eyes around and see; they all gather, they come to you. As I live, declares the Lord, you shall put them all on as an ornament; you shall bind them on as a bride does"-
"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies."- Proverbs 31:10
"Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."- Genesis 2:24
"Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives.."-
1 Peter 3:1
"I will betroth you to me in faithfulness. And you shall know the Lord."- Hosea 2:20
...Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."- Matthew 19:4-5
"Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one...
"...Let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband" -
"Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other"-
"Beloved, let us love one another,
(brothers, sisters, cousins, nephews and nieces)
(Godfathers and Godmothers)
(Abelita, Bajar, Tan and Revil Families)
(Celera and Gerona Families)
(my immediate Gerona-Celera family)
...for love is from God,
and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God."-
1 John 4:7
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing...
...Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."-
1 Corinthians 13:1-8
