The clouds are dark and forlorn in some parts of Luzon due to the southwest monsoon that brought heavy rains with Manila and Bulacan. Many areas were covered in a flood and some roads are no longer passable. Indeed, it is a gloomy day as the clouds continuously pour rain, filling grounds with knee-deep waters that eventually went into homes, commercial spaces and even churches.
But despite the gloomy weather, one couple in Bulacan were still all smiles. Not even the flood nor the heavy rain can stop them from exchanging “I dos” on August 11 in Brgy. Sto. Rosario, Hagonoy, Bulacan.

The entire entourage walked through the flood wherein some were barefoot and others wore slippers.
