“From this day forward, you will never walk alone. Today, I give you my heart, my faith, my life.“
“I cannot promise that we will no longer have discussions. There may even be times that we will be miles apart. But I vow commitment, and to continue to believe that we will endure all things.“
These are the vows of the lovely couple, Faith and Belle, during their wedding ceremony under Open Table Metropolitan Community Church, one of the few Christian churches in the Philippines that officiates weddings for LGBT+ couples, or “Holy Unions.”
It is a spiritual joining of two persons, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. It is a celebration of love, affirmed by their family, friends, and the Church.
