A Black Wedding for Kamikazee’s Jay Contreras
March 3, 2009 at 12:52 am
Billy Idol once sang White Wedding in the 80s. Kamikazee lead vocalist Jay Contreras on the other hand, opted to do the opposite as he walked down the aisle to meet his ultimate fantasy, Sarah Abad. When my husband told me about the wedding, I thought it looked awful. But since it was Jay, I also thought it was cool. On the contrary, it lived up to the expectations of the “creative” people and it looked really elegant (and playful too).
Jay Contreras was dead set against the traditional wedding so he asked all his friends to come in black and attend a wedding held in Paco Cemetery. Well, since he couldn’t marry Sarah at the Paco Cemetery, he and his beautiful wife exchanged vows at the Paco Church. Reception was held at the said cemetery. The wedding was of course, attended by famous rock personalities like that of Parokya ni Edgar (well, it’s not a secret that these guys are good buddies).
Photos were practically assembled on tombs as if they were (dead) people from the past. Bright red roses and ivory white chairs jazzed up the reception area that revealed the elegant and discriminating taste of the couple. I thought it looked gothic but it didn’t. It looked cool. Sarah was dressed in white embellished with a black waistband, which to me was a good color combination. It just didn’t accentuate her shapely figure.
All in all, it was a cute wedding. Kaye Abad looked perfectly fine too. I wonder if she and Chito Miranda were inspired by all these and would be the next couple to get “hitched.” Hmm… If that happens, Jay and Chito will take their friendship to the next level as “in-laws.”
Anyways, here are some photos from the said wedding.
With a touch of gothic, Jay and Sarah announced to the whole world their formal union
