Cainta Mayor Kit Nieto marries a couple during a wake
A wake in Cainta became something more memorable when it also served as a wedding venue.
Cainta Mayor Kit Nieto officiated a wedding during the wake for the bride’s father.
In a Facebook post, Nieto shared that the father of the bride passed away before the wedding took place.
The father had been excited to see his daughter tie the knot, but did not make it to the event.
Before his scheduled cremation, the couple decided to get married.
They asked the mayor to officiate their wedding at the wake of the bride’s father, and Nieto agreed.
It was a truly different wedding venue!
“4th stop.. Naka sked silang magpakasal. Pero Namatay yung tatay ng bride bago it maganap.. Excited daw yung tatay na umatend ng kasal pero di umabot. Tas dahil bukas na ang cremation, napag usapang nila kagabi na tawagan ako para ikasal sila. Nakiusap kung pwede daw ako magkasal sa lamay ng tatay ngayong araw. Pwede naman..” Nieto posted.
