Here’s a recap of the celebrity weddings that touched the hearts of Filipinos this past year. 
 

1. Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff

The couple’s wedding in New Zealand was among the most anticipated this year, and it certainly did not disappoint. From their welcome picnic, to their breathtaking photos that had them stand on the edge of a mountain overlooking a crystal-clear lake, to their actual ceremony held in the middle of a forest wonderland, Anne and Erwan’s wedding weekend was the very definition of picturesque.

2. Ai Ai delas Alas and Gerald Sibayan

One of the highlights of Delas Alas’ wedding was when she shared a hug with her eldest son, whose happiness over seeing his mother get another shot at forever was evident in his tears. Even Delas Alas herself couldn’t believe that she’d be walking down the aisle again, given her fair share of failed marriages. But here she is now, basking in post-wedding bliss as she celebrates her and Sibayan’s first Christmas as a married couple. Nice Print Photography

3. Hayden Kho and Vicki Belo

It was a long time coming, but they finally fulfilled their dream of exchanging wedding vows in a church ceremony in Paris last September. And boy, did they pull out all the stops to make it as memorable as possible. First, they treated their guests to a welcome dinner aboard a 70-meter cruise ship that sailed along the River Seine. Then, they rented out the grand foyer of the city’s famous Palais Garnier. Belo also had Michael Cinco design a dress befitting of a princess, which will certainly have her beaming whenever she looks back at her fairytale-esque first dance with her husband.

4. Francis Libiran and Christian Mark Jacobs

“You are my heart, you are my love, and you will be mine forever,” Christian told his fashion designer husband during their “celebration of love” in Boracay last May. Metrophoto

5. Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza

Traditionally, a groom walks down the aisle ahead of the bride – but not these two. Consistent with their non-traditional theme, they also rode the same car to the church and walked together to the altar. This was in addition to their eye-catching decision to use black as their ceremony’s main motif, from the bouquet and centerpieces to the entourage outfits. Nice Print Photography

6. Camille Prats and VJ Yambao

It was the kind of afternoon many would only dream of having to start off a brand new year — surrounded by friends and family, exchanging wedding vows with the love of your life. Back in January, the two exchanged wedding vows — yet another milestone for their relationship that found life after meeting by chance at a beach in California. Prior, they have not seen each other for 20 years. Nice Print Photography

7. Max Collins and Pancho Magno

“Pancho, I love you. Today is the day I become your forever friend and frenemy,” Max told her husband when they exchanged vows early this December. 7. Max Collins and Pancho Magno

8. Beauty Gonzalez and Norman Crisologo

Even the hardest of hearts would have found it difficult not to melt after hearing these two swap vows last May in Tagaytay, promising each other to make each other feel loved for the rest of their lives together. "In a time of fast-paced love affairs and cynical romances, you have made me believe that true love still exists in this world," Beauty said, before adding: "You will never be alone.” Jason Magbanua

9. Teddy Corpuz and Jasmine Corpuz

Not the first time they married, but it doesn’t make it any less sincere. As part of his “Magpasikat” performance with Vice Ganda and Jugs Jugueta, the rockstar proposed for a second time to his wife and married her again in front of a live television audience.

“Lagi mong sinasabi sa ’kin na never akong nag-propose sa ’yo. Kaya nga, sa harap mo at sa harap ng buong mundo, gusto kitang tanungin. Babe, will you marry me again?” he asked.
