A Black Wedding for Kamikazee’s Jay Contreras

March 3, 2009 at 12:52 am 27 comments

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

    Hell yeah. He sure did rock on. Parang GNR yan eh. And he certainly pulled it off. Yeah, UP nga yan sila.

    The wife, on the other hand, accdg to my husband was an actress. Trudis liit daw something. Dunno. But her face looks familiar. And yes, she’s a stunning bride. :)

    Don’t worry dude. Even I don’t know them. Hahahaha! Just kidding. Well, they’re one of the popular bands these days. Di mo lang sila inabutan dito sa Pinas.

    But I like this band. Natutuwa kse ko kay Jay. I watched one of their shows and guestings and found out that Jay was a real comic. Kahit yung ibang members ng group, kulit!

    Yeah I like the reception area and photos. Classic na classic noh? :)

    Btw, bagay sa inyo ganitong reception ni Normz. (wink wink)

    Nakita ko nga yung isa sa mga pic sa Facebook ni Jodie (yep… we are friends! nah, I knew here since high school days and her brother is my classmate).

    I was wondering bakit black…. tamang tama.. nasa libingan naman sila.

    but ok.. that’s unique. no against to that.

      Hi Blaire Bear,

      It was thoroughly researched. It is a fact that Paco Cemetery was the official reception of their wedding. After all, the info came from a very reliable source.

      Thanks for posting your sentiments though.
