MANILA- Kapamilya actor Patrick Garcia tied the knot with fiancee, Nikka Martinez on Saturday in a ceremony held at the Blue Leaf Pavilion on Macapagal Avenue, Pasay City.

The couple got engaged back in July. Their love story began in 2011 when Martinez "jokingly" invited Garcia to meet her family back in Dumaguete, the former revealed in an interview on "The Buzz."

"She thought na hindi ako sasama," Garcia said.

The former child star also credits Martinez for making his faith in God strong.

During his proposal to Martinez, Garcia said: "It will make me very happy if you'd allow me to make it right with you and most of all [if] we could make it right with the Lord."

Garcia and Martinez decided to marry in March, the birth month of their one-year-old daughter Chelsea.

Garcia, a former child actor who successfully transitioned to mature roles, also has a son with actress Jennylyn Mercado, four-year-old Alex Jazz.
