MANILA - "Thank you God for blessing me with her."
This was how director Paul Soriano concluded his wedding vow to Toni Gonzaga, his partner for more than eight years.
Soriano, whom Gonzaga admittedly considered a lesser priority to her career, finally tied the knot with the Kapamilya star during a Christian wedding ceremony held Friday in the latter's hometown of Taytay, Rizal.
The highlights of the wedding, which included speeches from Soriano's father and Alex Gonzaga, were aired on Saturday as part of an ABS-CBN special dubbed "Perfect Together: Paul and Toni's Wedding Special."
"When I saw you (Toni) come down that aisle, I saw everything; my future, the beautiful mother of my children of the future -- that was the rest of my life right there, my partner for life, my miracle. You are my number one priority right now," Soriano, as part of his vow, told Gonzaga.
He continued: "The only reason we are perfect together is that we have a perfect God in the center of this, and let's make sure we keep that perfect God in the center of all this at all times."
Soriano added: "I don't say this in public but I love you Celestine."
