In the Diocese of Knoxville, there is a dynamic group designed for young Catholic adults to come together in fellowship and faith called the Knoxville Frassati Fellowship. It brings together people from all types of backgrounds - and in this case, it brought together a Kentucky belle convert and a Filipino cradle Catholic.
Is that a beautiful pairing or what?
But being a member of the group also means that you develop a circle of friends - a LARGE circle of friends - who will come together and ensure that Carrie and Alvin's wedding would be . . . an absolute blast. Raucous, but still joyous, their wedding was high energy and the party kept going!
Go on - guess the groom's favorite movie franchise.
A couple who start out as good friends have a solid foundation for marriage.
In the Filipino culture, the couple is draped with a veil during the ceremony as a symbol of their unity.
The bridal party stopped at Schulz Brau Brewery in the Happy Holler section of Knoxville - zum wohl!
Let the party begin! It was time for everyone to dance!
I think the number of friends and the joy they brought with them to this celebration are a testament to the goodness of Carrie and Alvin.
May they have years of happiness together!
