It's by far the most beautiful sunset that I've ever seen:
The locals and the El Nido Resorts staff agree. If these guys who get to experience this daily say that it the most beautiful sunset, then it IS the most beautiful sunset!
And to think that we almost gave up on our sunset cruise: the late afternoon sky, as seen from Big Lagoon Beach, was dark, gloomy and covered with a thick layer of clouds. This, the oh so bland sky, was a stark contrast to what was Bernhard & Joanna's wedding cake: Hotel Sacher Vienna’s Sachertorte!!! A chocolate sponge covered with chocolate icing, and filled with a layer - or two - of apricot jam. (Ohh that was really really really good!!! They said it’s best served with whipped cream).
Now where was I... O yes, the sunset! Going back, we trusted our instincts and still went for the sunset cruise. *voila* This amazing view surprised us! It was grace that - quite literally - was showered on us from above. We are so much grateful for this surreal moment that we all experienced. And thank You also for that striated layer of clouds that filled the sky - like a fluffy carpet unrolled for us by the good Lord himself! [I’m still in awe whenever I see the portrait].
This is what I love about beach weddings - El Nido weddings in particular: the weather is very unpredictable, but it can and it will surprise you, literally adding colors and hues to the story that is your big day!
'till next time!
