Fast Food Wedding
October 12, 2010 by staff
Fast Food Wedding, Remember the TV advertising is not that old McDonald’s about a boy and a girl nerdy hyperactive? In advertising, the two never really went beyond friendship; despite their French fries immersion-sundae sparked the attraction to each other.
But unlike the children is not fanatic’s food trade, and pairs (seven years) and Roger Francis Alcantara Noemi Katrina Dela Paz was able to walk all the way to the altar yesterday afternoon at Mary Immaculate in the Parish Moonwalk Village, Las Piñas City.
With “I do” already exchanged, the newly married couple treated their customers to the brand of fast food they both love. Yes, the wedding reception – or “recess” while the couple likes to call – took place at a McDonald’s branch on Alabang-Zapote Road.
It was a wedding party that was like a children’s party – and maybe the wedding reception taking first in a McDonald’s – with a touch more fun.
The wedding cake of chocolate has been shaped to resemble a Big Mac, McDonald’s burger flagship double layer instead of Roger and Noemi, two mascots of McDonald’s were made to the traditional Filipino Catholic wedding “in silver “while the 120 guests who filled the home branch has popular” Happy Meal “toys.
And to symbolize their union in a manner quite unique and special for them, the couple left the ceremony of tasting cake in favor of taking simultaneous bites on a Big Mac.
“It was the best bite of a Big Mac I’ve ever had in my whole life,” said the husband. You’d better believe there was countless Big Mac burger in his career crunching.
As the two children in the business of McDonald’s, Roger, 30, Noemi, 28, seems to be at odds first. He is from Las Piñas. She is originally from Quezon City. He plays bass for a local group. She is a pharmacist. He is a native of La Salle. She comes from UP Manila. He has a Mohawk. She wears prescription glasses.
But there shared taste for Ronald McDonald and his team made sure that there is a strong link between them. So strong, in fact, they have decided to respond to a McDonald’s branch on Taft Avenue in Manila right after being introduced to each other through mutual friends.
“It is only our second meeting. Nagligawan Ang aga Namin (The court began early),” Noemi, says with a laugh.
When Naomi came to the branch only to find it closed (they later discovered it was only being renovated), she was shocked and worried sick. It was 2002, and cell phones at the time were not as common. What if Roger had been the first, and left in full view of the closure of McDonald’s?
“Fortunately, when I turned my back, I saw him. We wore the same suit of clothes,” said Noemi. The color is moss green.
They can order food for almost everyone, without any problem or argument. “Chicken nuggets, rice, pineapple juice and barbecue sauce for it,” Roger said with certainty. Big Mac and fries for him. The drink depends on his mood, Noemi replied.
And then came the time when the couple decided to formally ask the blessing of the “top big man.” Roger suggested Noemi in public, on stage at the launch album Eternal Now’s June 12, 2009, Bonifacio High Street, and Taguig. “I did it on Independence Day because I’ll give it to my independence,” he said.
It was also the time when they decided to make their wedding more memorable for themselves with their friends and family by customizing the procedure as much as they could. Their primary school on the theme wedding invitation, which is nine pages of colored paper attached to a pink folder, was sufficient to bowl people over.
Imagine what people thought when they discovered that the reception was to be in a fast food restaurant.
“My advice to other couples who want to marry is to personalize their wedding, if they can,” said Roger. “Why should I become like a million others, if you can become one in a million?”
For most people, two Golden Arches side-by-side is “M” for McDonald’s. Roger and Noemi, is marriage.
