Around three months since they announced their engagement last December, Your Face Sounds Familiar host Luis Manzano and actress Jessy Mendiola finally got married!
In the latest vlog uploaded on her YouTube channel last April 4, which has already raked in more than one million views as of this writing, viewers were given a glimpse of what happened in their secret intimate garden civil wedding – from the preparations up to the ceremony proper. It was attended by a few of their immediate families and their closest friends, including the groom’s parents Batangas 6th District Representative Vilma Santos-Recto, veteran actor-host Edu Manzano, and Senator Ralph Recto, as well as his brother Ryan Recto.
The versatile host wasn’t able to hold back his emotions as he watched his gorgeous bride walk down the aisle and delivered his vow. He began by reciting the chorus of Gary Valenciano’s “Warrior Is A Child” and jested that he opened the wrong tab.
He proceeded to utter, “HowHow, as we take this step today, I want to promise you that I’ll love you in each day that comes. Even on those days na pareho tayong hindi kamahal-mahal, I will choose to love you. I promise to be your rock when you’re weak, to put a smile on your face even on the darkest of days. We’ve been through so much, so many smiles and tears, but I would do it all over again if it means leading me back to you.”
Jessy, on the other hand, also made everyone teary-eyed with her touching promise to Luis. “I will protect you and I promise that if you grow weak, I will be there to fight your battles for you. Today is the beginning of our journey, of our lives together. I choose to spend today and all of my tomorrows with you. I love you, HowHow,” she expressed.
The civil wedding, which was presided by Lipa City Mayor Eric Africa, took place in the The Farm in San Benito located in the said city last February.
Jessy and Luis have always expressed their deep love for each other, displaying their sweet photos together, as seen in this gallery.
Their romance started to bloom in early 2016, as Jessy consecutively posted intimate photos of them together and sparked dating rumors. However, the two kept their mouths shut about the issue.
The couple clearly confirmed their status when Jessy guested on his defunct Sunday game show Luis hosted, Family Feud, on December 11, 2016, where they exchanged sweet statements and gestures that got everyone thrilled.
Since then, they shared their intimate snaps of their travels around the Philippines and abroad, captioned with sweet messages. They’re also omnipresent on each other’s events and appearances to show their support and protect one another against the hurtful tirades of bashers.
Let’s celebrate Jessy and Luis’ love through this montage of their sweetest moments together in this gallery.
Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Manzano! May their love shine brighter and grow stronger as time goes by. We wish Jessy and Luis the best in their exciting new journey together, as husband and wife!
