Kasal

by Kiko Matsing

My parents, flanked by my grandparents, on their wedding. The chapel was Episcopalian, the ceremony Baptist. I have never seen my father be quite this dapper. Love that sleek 1960s cut suit, channeling ultra cool Alain Delon.

My sister’s garden wedding at Intramuros, a historic Spanish district in Old Manila. This is more traditional Filipino formal wear, made of either banana (jusi) or pineapple (piña) fiber.

My younger brother, who is extremely shy, was not in the mood for portrait pictures that night. This is the only time he wore a Barong Tagalog.
