Diana Sparkle Banquet Hall: 7th Birthday Filipino Celebration/ Ruby

Ruby celebrated her 7th Birthday. In the Philippines, the 7th Birthday is a big celebration. It marks the year when the child is leaving her infancy. Even though she is still is a child, she now knows the difference between right and wrong. It is a coming-of-age celebration as a Quinceañera, a Sweet 16, a Bat Mitzvah, or a Debut.

Ruby celebrated her 7 birthday with her family and a few of her friends. Her Godparents helped get her dressed. Ruby had kept her dress a secret from her daddy, so on the day of her celebration, she did a first look with him. He turned around to see her dressed.

At her celebration, she received 7 roses from her cousins and brothers signifying each year of her life. 7 girls and women also gave her candles to blow out. With each candle they gave her, they also wished for her future.

Her grandparents sang to her. She blew out her beautiful unicorn cake and finally, her entire family and all of her friends joined her on the dance floor for a group picture.

    Corona Wedding Photography: Kris and Heather

    “You’ve been on my mind
    I grow fonder every day
    Lose myself in time.”
    – Adele

    Heather came into view and Kris wiped a tear. Half way down the aisle, Heather stopped and her father joined her. Heather kissed her mom as Kris wiped another tear. They joined arms and walked towards the altar. Moments later, they would be laughing and pointing to the bridesmaid that introduced them when retelling their love story to Father Hieu. Everyone laughed when Kris joked that he was waiting to kiss Heather for the first time. In a traditional Filipino Ceremony, Heather and Kris exchanged vows and rings. The Lazo that Heather’s parents had used was draped over them. They received the blessing from all of their sponsors and exited the church as husband and wife.
    Soon they were laughing and messing around with their bridal party. At reception, Heather and Kris entered a packed hall. While their first dance was traditional, their parent dances were not. Heather did a ballroom dance with her dad and Kris showed off with his mom. Later, Heather would play the keyboard and sing the song One and Only by Adele.
    “I’ve been here before. Every feeling, every word, I’ve imagined it all. You’ll never know if you never try
    To forget the past and simply be mine. I dare you to let me be your, your one and only. I promise I’m worthy,
    To hold in your arms. So come on and give me the chance, to prove I am the one who can walk that mile
    Until the end starts.”

    The end of the night came too soon, but forever was theirs.
