Tom and Cathy's first wedding was a civil ceremony held on Saturday, October
16, 1999 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Both the wedding ceremony and the
wedding reception took place at Robin's
Nest bed and breakfast in Houston, Texas. There were 17 people in
attendance including the bride and the groom. Robin's Nest is a fabulous
place to hold a small wedding party. We had two musicians there playing violin music, which put everyone into the right mood.
The approximate cost of the wedding was $3,700 U.S. (185,000 Philippine pesos).
Here are some pictures from our wedding day. We hope you enjoy them!
